It’s difficult to make your second album have the impact of your first, same with columns. We’re in the ‘difficult second column’ stage!

This thing needs an intro, so it’s time to pull of the tenuous musical references (see above) to lead into some great tunes we have found.

Fortunately, we haven’t struggled with badass new tuneage to introduce.

Get your ears round this little lot: 

Bunki - SKTCH

This new track from London producer Bunki is a masterpiece of minimalism. Eerie and hypnotic track it's captivating in its restrain as Bunki develops his soundscape around the dripping of water. The producer may still be studying at Goldsmiths, University of London, but he has already begun to carve out a unique and promising career.  

Beat Spacek - I Wanna Know

In his latest guise as Beats Spacek (now part of the Ninja Tune stable), veteran producer Steve Spacek, forges a future sound with technology as his key collaborator. Almost exclusively made with iPhone and iPad apps, the track is characteristed by an atmospheric, overpowering bassline and a smooth beat.

The Prodigy - Nasty

After a six year break from making music, you’d be forgiven for thinking The Prodigy would be rusty. But the dance legends slip back into an explosive sound with relative ease. Their latest track, ‘Nasty’ is big, brash and as angry as ever.

Big Sixes - Scared

Buckinghamshire’s Big Sixes have rocked up their haunting, beautiful sound and infused it with more power and groove.Taken from their latest EP, The Idles, the band’s slick instrumentation and vocal mastery has an artistry beyond their years.   

The Wombats - Greek Tragedy

After a quiet 2014 The Wombats have emerged with a characteristically morose track, ‘Greek Tragedy'.  While the infectious vocals of Matthew Murphy are a familiar constant, the dark instrumentation expose a more emotional side to the band.   

Jilk & Hakiu Salut - Periscope

Derbyshire three-piece Haiku Salut team up with electronic outfit Jilk for this quirky curveball of a record. Beginning with a simple, soothing hum, the track grows into a triumphant kaleidoscopic of sound. The marriage of each style has created a charmingly strange composition brimming with summery optimism.

The Moon - Eureka Moment 

Few bands will announce themselves as furiously as London four-piece The Moon. The band’s debut, 'Eureka Moment', combines gritty, abrasive instrumentation with crooning vocals in a sound that is reminiscent of The Libertines’ early efforts.

Kind of Like Spitting - Stress Cadet

Ahead of their first album in nine years, cult US indie outfit Kind of Like Spitting have debuted their new track, 'Stress Cadet'. Their emotive, fuzzy indie rock has lost none of its charm.
