Singles That Mingle

With Captain Stavros


Sir Chloe – Know Better

I Am The Dog Out May 19th Via Atlantic Records

A well produced and smooth single. Super listenable.


Dream Wife – Orbit

Social Lubrication Out June 9th Via Lucky Numbers Records

A discoy dance tune ready to get your toes tapping.


Skinny Pelembe – Deadman Deadman Deadman

Hardly The Same Snake Out April 28th Via Partisan Records

Another solid track from this dude, flexing his ability to stay fresh and provide variety with a popy jingle.


Nadine Khouri – Song of a Caged Bird

Another Life Out now, new single out May 19th Via Talitres

Wow, where’s this one been hiding? A moody and pleasant tune.


Lea Sen – Again

You of Now Pt II Out Now Via Partisan Records

A witchy track.


Feral Family – Topic

A tinge of dreary tone in this moody flowy tune.


Eyes of Others – Once, Twice, Trice

Eyes of Others – Out May 19th Via Heavenly Recordings

A compelling track, great for introspection or coworking spaces


Grian Chatten – The Score

Out Now Via Partisan Records

Never been a fan of F DC but credit where credit’s due. This is a {/youtube}beautiful track.


Crumb – Dust Bunny

Crumb tease us with a few bread crumbs which’ll hopefully be leading to a new album. This has ‘90s themes woven throughout and we love it.



Thom Southern – Love HZ

Out Now Via Mighty Good Leader

We can see the song becoming a regular favourite the more we hear it, it grows quickly adding layers.


PJ Harvey – A Child’s Question, August

I Inside The Old Year Dying Out July 7th Via Partisan Records

From the first bars it’s an instant like from us. If you haven’t seen PJ Harvey live, she will not disappoint.

Anyone else getting Sleater Kinney vibes?


The Early Purple – Big Mistake

Summer Hide Out May 12th

A wolf in sheep’s clothing.

Boy Harsher’s Midas touch in full effect.

The Girl With A Hole In Her Heart Out May 26th Digitally and July 21st Vinyl Via Other Records

Deconstructed disco.


Monogram – Topic

A Fine Commitment Out June 16th Via Papercup Music

The algorithm set Tom Waits’ Hope I Don’t Fall In Love With You to play after Topic. That says it all for us.


Egyptian Blue – Matador

EP Out Now Via Yala Records

Not sure about this one, there’s something about it but does it get you seeing red? Let us know.


Sweeping Promises – Eraser

Coming For You Out June 30th Via Sub Pop Records

Mong Tong – Forest Show

Tao Fire Out June 30th Via GuruGuru Brian Records

So cool, maybe too cool, are we even allowed to listen to this?

Hanna Tembo’s vocals on this bombastic track are a solid homage to Nana Love


John – Trauma Mosaic

Nuts and bolts rock, does what it says on the tin


Memorials – Boudicaaa

Tramps! & Women Against The Bomb Out May 12th Via State51 Conspiracy Records

Great breakup song.


Yowl – Verile Crocodile Sweat

Fun song and terrifying video, have a great day kids!

Holy smokes I cannot understand a word they’re singing but I love hearing it.

Jesse Mac Cormack


SOLO out April 8 – on Secret City Records

Panic Shack

‘The Ick’

Baby Shack out April 8 – On Brace Yourself Records 

You put the milk in first? Mate, get a clue. How dare you shoosh me!




Place To Land out June 8 – Bayonet Records 

A feel good easy breezy ditty, worth a feel good warm and fuzzy listen.




‘A Breeze’

Another quality slow burner.

‘Delia Smith’

Modern Job out now on Nice Swan Records 

Sprints tackle the age-old question, ‘who wants to be special anyway?’.  Track feels like a nod to Blood Red Shoes’ roots, if you dig that you’ll dig this.
