It’s all lies at the moment. Trump lies, Leave campaign lies, Russia lying about all sorts of stuff... It’s all a bit depressing, isn’t it? We need some cold slabs of truth to help us through! On the music side of things, the truth is 2016 has been awesome and keeps on giving. Use this lot to elevate the pain of a world slowly collapsing in on itself. Liines – Disappear The latest act to explode from new label Reckless Yes, post-punk trio LIINES are set to drop new double-A side single ‘Disappear/Be Here’ next month. Produced by Paul Tipler (Placebo, Elastica, Stereolab) ‘Disappear’ is a fraught slice of punk rock with echoes of Sleater Kinney, Elastica and Fugazi in the mix. It’s urgent and vital stuff. Tycho – Epoch ‘Epoch’ is the latest gem to be mined from Scott Hansen’s continually expanding electronic project Tycho. It perfectly highlights the darker territory to be found on the forthcoming new album. ‘Epoch’ is a deep, soulful piece of cerebral electronica. Peggy Gou – Gou Talk Korean-born, Berlin resident Peggy Gou is to drop her new EP ‘Seek For Maktoop’ next month. ‘Gou Talk’ is the first offering of three groove-focused productions coaxed from her beloved MPC3000. ‘Gou Talk’ is a funky, modern take on the classic house sound. Animal House – Heavy Australian quartet Animal House have shared ‘Heavy’ a cut from their forthcoming new EP ‘Sorry’ out in November. ‘Heavy’ has been shot directly from the early noughties garage-rock revival with echoes of The Strokes, The Raconteurs and The Libertines it is a slice of raucous, joyful indie rock. Plastic Mermaids – Painted Lady If you like your pop music inventive, packed with melody and a little experimental – Plastic Mermaids will be perfect for you! With just a hint of the Beatles most expansive work, and the psyche wonderment of Mercury Rev and the Flaming Lips, something special is going on with this band. This version of ‘Painted Lady’ filmed in St Catherine’s Church on the Isle of Wight proves you need to get out and witness this band on their debut UK tour throughout October. Slaves - Consume or be Consumed ft. Mike D As if snarling punk duo Slaves weren’t cool enough, they’ve only gone and got a bloody Beastie Boy on-board for their latest single ‘Consume or be Consumed’! Taken from new album Take Control out on 30th September it is a hardcore attack on our fascination with consuming.
