Sleigh Bells – Tell ‘Em

Sleigh Bells - TreatsIt’s been a busy week for new anticipated music, and Sleigh Bells are another band that I’m happy to hear a new track from.

I’ve been listening to about 4 Sleigh Bells’ demos for what seems like forever, and I’m still not sick of the tracks. This week tho their new single ‘Tell Em’ has been put on their site as a free download, and the album artwork for their forthcoming debut ‘Treats’ has been put out into the public. ‘Treats’ is set to be released on May 11th on Mom + Pop Music β€œin special partnership” with M.I.A.’s NEET Recordings – I for one will be buying.

Head on over to the band’s website to get a hold of ‘Tell ‘Em’, or have a listen below.

Turn On The Bright Lights

This news makes me happy. Interpol are back, and it’s long overdue. Pauls Banks & co. bringing a bit of gloom back to take over from the summer vibes.

They’ve just unleashed a new track Lights, which is available for download on their website (it’s free). No word as of yet on new album details, but this will keep me entertained for now.

Competition Time: Who Would You Ring?

With the world of social media and what not you’d think you’d be a step closer to your music idol, but that doesn’t seem so. Are they really the ones updating the facebook page or twitter account? In some cases I think yes but are they ever going to answer your questions or in fact do you have any questions for them?

So we have a phone to give away (Samsung s3500 thanks to Vodafone). Now this phone does not have any famous peoples numbers, BUT if it did and you won it, what musician or singer would you ring and what would you ask them?

Leave your answer in the comments below to be in the draw to win the phone.

I think I’d ring Marina and ask her where she gets the inspiration for some of her outfits, like giant mickey mouse dungarees, what possesses one to wear those? Don’t get me wrong I do love Marina πŸ™‚

Competition closes midnight Wed May 5th.

UPDATE: So the names were put into a cup and the winner was picked, congrats to kgiller – we’ll email you Β πŸ™‚

Weekend Tunage: Suburban Kids With Biblical Names

This weekend’s tunage comes from Suburban Kids With Biblical Names, yeah you heard right. Epic band name. I originally had something else planned, but Chris sent on this track during the week and it’s perfect to put you in a summery mood on a friday, horray!

The band are from sweden, and have a couple more summery indie pop tunes up their sleeves. I’m digging their track ‘1999’ also. Anyways take a listen of Funeral Face below – happy weekend y’all.

Shining Diamond – Marina on BBC Live Lounge

Marina and the Diamonds was on BBC 1’s live lounge today performing her forthcoming single I Am Not A Robot, plus a cover of 30h!3 – ‘Starstukk’. She took a pretty shitty / generic pop song and made it sound haunting and beautiful. A1.
