We've had more than our fair share of previews from The 1975's self-titled debut album in recent months. For a band that only really came to the attention of a few less than 12 months they've had a meteoric rise through the ranks and this album is shows just how they've done it. It contains a variety of influences and styles ranging from ballads to disco. It's set for release next week on September the 2nd via Dirty Hit, so let's not beat around the bush here. Stream the album in full below via The Fader and be sure to pick a copy next week. You can pre-order a copy here.
With Arctic Monkeys set to release AM in just over a weeks time, many people are extremely excited to wrap their ears around what's promising to be one of the most interesting albums of the year. We've already heard "R U Mine?" last year, along with "Do I Wanna Know?" and "Why'd You Only Call Me When You're High?" in recent months. The B-Side to the latter has now found its way onto the web. "Stop the World I Wanna Get Off with You" can be streamed in full below via Tumblr via the official upload.
Something brand new for you today from Brooklyn. Ellis Ludwig-Leone is a rather talented songwriter and composer and he's behind a project called San Fermin who've just announced a self-titled debut album which is due for release on November 4th via Downtown Records. The brass section and arrangements make you feel instantly comfortable and warm. It's like a big firm embrace from and old friend. The only thing is, you've never met this person before. They're a new friend. Absolutely lovely stuff. Treat yourself to a hug and check out the new single "Daedalus" below.
We've mentioned the uber talented YADi a few times here on SKOA, most recently was via a video for her track "The Blow". She's now unveiled a brand new single, "Creatures", and you can watch the official video below. Capturing a retro vibe, the clip was filmed on a super eight camera and takes inspiration from one of YADi’s favourite films, The Colour of Pomegranates. I for one am very excited to see what else this promising young lady has to offer in the rest of 2013.
You can pick up the single over here.
Cast your mind back to 1994, for me I was just starting School, learning how to colour in, maybe tie my own shoes too via some Rabbit Ears rhyme. Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds released "Red Right Hand" in 1994 though, and since then there have been numerous covers. Back in 2009, Arctic Monkeys added it to their live set, then released it as a B-Side to "Crying Lighting", remember that? Today though we get another take on the track from our favourite new LA band, FIDLAR. Check out the slackers interpretation below. Perfect for a morning break from whatever it is your supposed to be doing right now.
In case you missed it too, check out their brilliant Nick Offerman featuring video for "Cocaine" over here.
Another day closer to the release of The 1975's self-titled debut album, and we get another track set to feature on it. The good folk at Prefix have just premiered "M.O.N.E.Y", a funky guitar lined track that shows that the band are not all about the pop bangers you've most likely heard all over the radio in recent months. Check out the band showing some different colours below. It's set to feature their album, so be sure to look out for it when it's released next week via the lovely people at Dirty Hit.
Everyone seems pretty hyped for Danny Brown's upcoming album, Old, which is set for release next month on September 30th via Fool’s Gold. According to Pitchfork, the album is set to feature some pretty tasty guest spots from the likes of ScHoolboy Q, Rustie, ASAP Rocky, Purity Ring, A-Trak, Charli XCX and Freddie Gibbs. He's just offered up a track from it titled "ODB" which is a mind melting rap track which comes packaged with some equally disturbing visuals. Check it out below.
I first got wind of the mysterious NO CEREMONY /// back in 2011 via their track "HURTLOVE", after that though they kind of fell off my radar a bit. That was until earlier this month though when some new tracks appeared along with a self titled album which is set for release on September 2nd. Following the release, the band have lined up a rather brilliant support slot at London's Roundhouse with The Pixies. Their album is definitely one of my favourites from recent months though and you can stream it in full below via Line of Best Fit.
