Hookworms return with news of upcoming LP The Hum and new track "The Impasse".
Hookworms have been relatively quiet of late, other than a couple of festival slots and news of this new LP come, other than the fact they warned us, as a relative surprise. Obviously MJ is constantly working with a variety of different acts on a variety of different projects, so taking that into consideration, it's no surprise they've hit the ground running with "The Impasse".
London's Whistlejacket return pretty much half-a-year since "Melt", and "Swimming Lessons" doesn't disappoint.
It's good to know not much has changed on the Whistlejacket front - their tracks are still jam packed full of heavy, shoegaze guitar riffs and catchy melodies. It seems like an absolute age since "March Hare" blew our socks off, sounding like a cross between Slowdive and The Stone Roses and luckily we've been treat to more music.
Norfolk's Teen Brains return with new track "Flume" set to feature on the next compilation from Leeds' Beech Coma.
"Flume" serves as Teen Brains' follow-up to "Annabel", which we heard back in April when the weather was starting to perk up. Now we've been hit with the new track and, well, it's starting to dull down - the weather that is.
Watch School's debut video for their charming single "SoLong"
School's "SoLong" has been around for over seven months now, so a 'UK' release seemed a bit odd, especially when you could buy it previously (I know, the Internet right?). But we know what it actually means, and that is a new press release and a refreshed image (and more people are seemingly 'into it', so good job team), but, more importantly, things such as a video, which is always nice to see.
LA punks Death Valley Girls unveil "Electric High" & "Gettin' Hard", off the back of debut album Street Venom.

Following returning track "The Zoo", Sweden via America FEWS unveil latest track, "Seasick".
Instrumentally, "Seasick" sees a far more happy-go-lucky approach and output from FEWS. This is opposed to previous track "The Zoo", which has a brilliant air of menace about it. If both tracks we're to represent the seasons, "The Zoo" would be winter and "Seasick" would be, yeah you guessed it, the summer. It's light, airy and in some aspects quite joyous - especially when you disregard the, at times, melancholic vocals.
The Drums unveil latest track set to feature on Encyclopedia, "I Can't Pretend".
The Drums have had a strange however many years since the release of their debut album, but following "Magic Mountain" and now "I Can't Pretend" the band look to have found a bit of consistency.

Jamie T drops new video for "Zombie", following up "Don't You Find", will appear on Carry On The Grudge.
Any fears that Jamie had gone sensible and a little constrained in his delivery and styling are allayed with this new video for "Zombie".
Adam Bainbridge aka Kindness returns in typical style with the smooth as hell "World Restart".
What's new, Kindness releases a track and it's smoother than a baby's arse - tell us something we weren't expecting.
Bass Drum of Death return with "Left For Dead" from the October 7th released Rip This.
Bass Drum of Death or should I say, John Barrett have never been ones to shy from their swaggy and raucous garage-rock roots and even with the help of Unknown Mortal Orchestra's Jacob Portrait, the band seem to have stayed well and truly loyal to their brazen sound.
