December 12 2014 - Hot Top Ten
HEY BULLDOG - MAKIN' FRIENDS NOT MILLIONAIRES
The Manchester psych-blues rockers will thump your eardrums with this new single out this week. Catch them live in Leicester tomorrow (December 13) at Biff Bang Pow.
GLOW - LEAVE ME TO MY DREAMS
The California dudes bring some lo-fi psych-pop charm to this track from their new album 'Space Blanket', out this week.
DALTON - ONLY NAMES
Released on December 15, the new single from the Washington DC via LA singer-songwriter Nate Harar is filled with marimbas and melodic hooks.
CALIFORNIA X - RED PLANET
The Massachusetts punks offer another scuzzy thrash track from their second album 'Nights In The Dark', out next month. Sounding like a winner.
NAKED (ON DRUGS) - SINGLE FISH SIGHT
From the Manchester-based duo who brought us 'Lee Ann's Skin' last year, this is their official debut single, out now. Vocalist Sebastien Perrin weaves his louche French vowels around Luke Byron Scott's snakelike guitar to create what they term 'melodramatic porn'.
SNOW GHOSTS - BOWLINE
Lead single from the trio's electronic second album, 'A Wrecking' - recorded in a cottage in Dorset in a deserted bank vault - out February next year. Swirling intense piece of work that layers Hannah Cartwright’s vocals over music-box chimes and electronic drones.
WOMEN IN LOVE - FALL IN LOVE
Featured here earlier in the week, debut track from the new deep electronic producer based in East London. Robotic vocals and some steady beats, coupled with great visuals on the video.
TWERPS - SHOULDERS
From their second album, 'Range Anxiety', out January 27 (via Merge Records), the floaty playful vocals of Jules McFarlane replace Marty Frawley here, keeping the jangle pop of the Melbourne four-piece buoyant.
THREE DAYS DARK - WALK WITH ME
Psych rock lead single released last month from upcoming second EP - out early '15 - from the solo project of Essex-based singer/songwriter/ guitarist Trent Halliday, former frontman of DeepSeaGreen.
RY - LIGHTNING IN A BOTTLE
Fast-rising Melbourne hip-hop artist Ryan Egan drops the lead single from his upcoming EP 'Ivory Coast', due early next year. Sassy production, cool beats and deeply melodic.
