It’s April already, how did that happen?  Temporal dislocation aside, Captain Stavros is here, as ever, to bring you the best new tunes.


Weird Nightmare


Weird Nightmare out March 20 – Sub Pop


Dropping the antithesis of a nightmare jingle this tune’s a strummy feelgooder.

Cry MFER out April 22 – Hardly Art


A dim the lights single set in the tone of the parlance of our times. 



‘The Sun’

Born a Loser out now – Ed Banger Records

Jesse Mac Cormack


SOLO out April 8 – on Secret City Records

Feels like a Thom Yorke inspired track, very Kid A.


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’

Constant Connection out April 8 – on Night School Records 

Another quality slow burner.



‘Pillar on the Bridge of Yourself’

Broken Equipment out now – on What’s Your Rapture?

Touring now across the UK 

If you like what you hear, and we do, Bodega are playing a slew of dates around the end of the month in London town.



‘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.
