Singles That Mingle

With Captain Stavros


Corridor – Mourir Demain

Mimi Out April 26 Via Sub Pop

Only the French could get away with such dark lyrics swaddled in warm and unassuming fuzzy grunge.

 

Dog Unit – When Do We Start Fighting?

I guess the fisticuffs on this instrumental brilliance kicks off on the 5th of April with re-match tourd ates throughout the same month.

Beats are on point, lyrically it’s getting there, one to keep an eye on

Unwishing Well Out April 12 Via Tough Love Records

Jarvis Cocker fans will not be disappointed in this one as he’s channeled pretty thoroughly in this track.

 

Bnny – Good Stuf

One Million Love Song Out April 5 Via Fire Talk Records

Hooked us.

 

Chastity Belt – I-90 Bridge

Live, Laugh, Love Out March 29 Via Suicide Squeeze Records

Instantly transported to warm and sunnier times from this dismal grey winter.

 

Grandaddy – Long as I’m Not The Only One

If you’ve ever enjoyed Grandaddy the chances are likely all the elements that made you fall for them in the first place are in this track.

A month til Christmas and our very own Captain Stavros builds up the Winter cheer with some great tunes to warm the blood.

 

Bria

‘Where Have all the Cowboys Gone?’

Country Covers 2 out February 24 via Subpop Records

Bria’s got questions and she wants answers.  We all do.

 

Fazerdaze

‘Winter’

Break! out now via Section 1

Another new track from Fazerdaze, another bullseye hit.

 

Le Junk

‘Some Monkeys’

Alt-pop gone mad! Caught the Old Blue Last show and it was great, enjoy this new single and an upcoming gig at the Shack January 28, 2023.

 

JW Frances

‘Dream House’

Dream House out January 27 via Sunday Best Recordings

I can’t tell if this dude is wearing a wig or not in the music video but who cares with these Mac Demarco vibes. Who the hell even cares?

 

Jen Cloher

‘Mana Takatapui’

I Am the River, The River is Me out March 3 via Milk! Records

Here’s a song name I cannot for the life of me pronounce, even though I hear her singing it, but loved the opening licks/lyrics and I’m sure you will too. Vibe on your crazy diamond.

 

Sorry Girls

‘Breathe’

Out soon via Artbutus Records

As someone that’s recently been on an air balloon, for the first time can you believe it? I dig these floaty vibes. I’m also a huge supporter of breathing.

 

Ist Ist

‘Stamp You Out’

Protagonist Out March 31 Via Violence Records.

Adulty post-punk sounds, we dig those who age gracefully and can still rock a jam.

 

The Pearl Hearts

‘More’

Love Chaos Out Soon via Double Bang Records

We can’t help hearing a Rage Against the Machine/Slaves/Royal Blood mash-up here. Sold-Out show this week at Blondie caught our attention, glad it did.

 

Patrick Watson

‘Ode to Vivian (Rework)’

Better in the Shade Out Now via City Slang Records

Just some good ole Pianie.

 

Laveda

‘Fuck’

Single Out Now via Paper Cup Music

Promoted as a ‘night drive window down’ tune in the press blurb. I’m listening to it in the day with the rain, must have range cause I haven’t combusted….yet.

 

Blossom Caldarone

‘Fridge Space’

Always a sucker for storytelling tunes and horns. Poppipty pop track.

 

Italia 90

‘Tales From Beyond’

Living Human Treasure out January 20 via Brace Yourself Records

 

Weird Nightmare

So Far Gone

Out Now via Sub Pop Records

A slightly more relaxed vibe from Metz frontman Alex

 

Softee

‘Red Light Green Light’

Out soon via City Slang Records

Throw Backs, lyrics, jams for days, enjoyable.

 

Angelica Salvi

‘MOL’

Habitat out now! Via Lovers & Lollypops

Not our typical format but we got distracted whilst this was on in the background and it hooked us as much as it’ll hook you. Make a cup of whatever and chuck this on, you’ll see.

 

Bonnie Trash

‘Lashies on Fire’

Molochio out now via Hand Drawn Dracula Records

Another hauntingly beautiful track by Bonnie Trash.

 

Pretty Happy

‘Boots’

Pretty Happy - Echo Boy out now Via Foggy Notions Records

These Boots were made for listening, and they’re going to listen all over you.

 

Alice Low

‘Show Business’

Alice is back with their David Bowie everything to drop another easy to listen to track.

Via CLWB Records

 

Civic

‘End of the Line’

Taken By Force out February 10 Via ATO Records

Civic has the kind of chaotic energy we condone around here.

 

Bnny

‘Breaking Up’

Everything out now Via Fire Talk Records

A low-fi melody with a familiar message that never gets old.

 

Kate Davis

‘Consequences’

New Single via Anti- Records

Darkness dressed in Poppy-clothing. We can get behind this.

 

Prima Queen

Out now Via Big Indie Records

Folky story telling, feels like we’re eavesdropping. Check-em out at the Lexington on the 28.11.22

Out now Via Brace Yourself Records

March 23, The Victoria, London, be there.

This is like peanut butter and chocolate’s debut.

Milk For Flower out March 23 Via Heavenly Recordings

A sing-songy-piano masterpiece.

 

Flossing

Word of Mirth out now Via Brace Yourself Records
