Singles That Mingle

 By Captain Stavros

Our last singles roundup of 2022.  It was a great year for music, shame about everything else.  See you in 2023!


Bass Drum Of Death

‘Head Change’

Say I Won’t out January 27 via Fat Possum

This new tunes really shrugs off expectations and settles into languid Rock stance


Petite Noir

‘Simple Things’

Out now via Roya

Grabs your attention, doesn't steal it, subtle craftsmanship.


Núria Graham

‘The Catalyst’

Cyclamen – Out January 20 via Primavera Labels / New Deal / Verve Forecast & Universal Music Spain

Makes the STM list again with this clever and catchy, short but sweet, jingle.


Weird Nightmare

'Our Love Will Still Be There'

Out now via Sub Pop

A Troggs cover you never knew you always wanted, Weird Nightmare nails it.


Addie Brik


‘That Dog Don’t Hunt’ - Out now via Itza Records

Vocals melt seamlessly into this track.



‘Night Fell’

New EP: ‘ARC’ out January 13

Enjoy something uplifting and positive without it being IN YOUR FACE



‘Veronica Mars’

New Single out now via Partisan Records

Wasn’t sure about this one but then the hook kicked in, totally tubular.


Low Girl


New EP out Jan 6

Cosgrove owns events that were out of their control putting their anger into this track which came out a banger.


Son Lux


Out now via City Slang Records

Extensive European and UK live dates coming up on February/March

Hauntingly beautiful music masterfully composed.

The latest single reviews from our London Correspondent, Captain Stavros

Aoife Nessa Frances

‘This Still Life’

Protector out October 28 via Partisan Records

As summer slowly slips away, we thought we’d start the STM list with a song that embodies that transition nicely.


Courtney Marie Andrews

‘These Are The Good Old Days’

Loose Future out October 7 via Fat Possum

Speaking of seasons slipping away, doesn’t mean the good ole days gotta go with ‘em.



‘Reduced Voltage’

Private View out September 30

A mechanical melody from the future.


King Gizzard and the Wizard Lizard

‘Ice V’

Ice, Death, Planets, Lungs, Mushrooms And Lava out now via KGLW

It’s a good track but more importantly these motherfuckers are releasing three albums in October!!!!


Beth Orton 

‘Fractals’ (Feat Alabaster Deplume)

Weather Alive out now Via Partisan Records

One time Alabaster told me a funny anecdote involving a child and a tuba, I think, whilst walking down Holloway Road. The lesson? Listen to anything involving DePlume, you won’t be remiss.



Gold Panda

‘The Work’

The Work out November 11 via City Slang

A hard to describe but uplifting track that sounds sort of like a computer got high in the sun.



‘My Lovely Cat’

Out now via Joyful Noise

As always, get ready to have your mind bent by these lot. You either love ‘em or ya don’t. If it’s the former you’ll appreciate the consistency in their sound carrying through in this gem.


Yumi and the Weather

‘It’s All in my Head’

Out now via  Miohmi Records

It’s all in your head and you’ll have a tough time getting it out once it’s in there.


Princess Chelsea

‘Forever is a Charm’

Everything Is Going To Be Alright out October 8 via Lil’ Chief Records

It’s got a whimsical B52s-ness with a bit of Blondie, anyone else hear it?


Núria Graham

‘Yes It’s Me, The Goldfish’

Ridiculous song-title, ridiculously great lo-fi goodness.




Out Now via City Slang Records

Bit of a clubby anthem vibe, and yet, we were not put off.


The Black Angels

‘Empires Falling’

Wilderness of Mirrors out now via Partisan Records

The album is out now, sell your children to buy it, you will not regret it. It’s the love child of the QOTSA and TEODM.


Bass Drum of Death

‘Say Your Prayers’

Co-Written by Royal Blood’s Mike Kerr, not sure how we feel about that...


Cool Sounds

‘Like That’

Like That Out October 7 via Chapter Music

Cool sounds, now with saxa-ma-phone? Yes please!


The Orielles

‘The Room’

Tableau out October 7 via Heavenly Recordings

A band that met at a house party and always feels like they’re catering to that vibe, nothing wrong with that. Another low-fi gem.


Jade Imagine

‘Instinct That I Wanna Know’

Cold Memory out now via Marathon Artists

Low-fi funky pop, easy to listen to and feel good about.




Blue Skies out now via Fat Possum

Grungy and tough to pin down, a song I’d like to hear playing at my local.

These New South Whales

‘Rotten South’

Channelling some grunge/rock sounds of the mid ’90s, digging it.
