Freedom Fry are celebrating the release of their new video for ‘Jesse James’ by giving the haunting, indie pop song away for free through the Soundcloud above.
I don’t really know much about this, but it’s good pop/rock. Check out here.
Nineteen and she’s managed to bag a track with Nas. No mean feat. Check out here.
There are so many wonderful things happening with this song. It has a big sixties, subdued sound, but above all sounds so original and old fashioned yet still being fresh. Check out here.
It’s been a while since I heard something so beautiful and moving that it takes you to another level. It’s a very dramatic yet warming sound. Check out here.
One of my favourite tracks of the week, Windsor Drive hail from the US and have an awesome power pop sound. Check out here.
Gritty yet flawless sounding American rock and roll mixed with hip hop. The official description for the debut album by New York’s Julian Rhine (aka White Rhino) calls the sound ‘dripping wet with daring attitude, vicissitude, unorthodoxy, and rugged flow’, and to be honest I couldn’t describe it any better. Check out here.
So this band seem to have been on the radar for some time but I’ve only just heard of them now- it’s hard not to get hyper when you hear this lot, it’s all guitars and echoey voices and stuff. Good. Check out here.
Fresh new indie pop from Belfast. The track is also available as a free download before it’s official release on the 20th August. Check out here.

I should really have written something about Jens Lekman in these last couple of the years. He ticks all the boxes for me, but I’ve never felt compelled to up until now. I remember seeing him live while working for a music venue back in 2006 and I thought he was brilliant and boring in equal measures, but six years later I think I’m finally growing to like his simple lyrics and catchy riffs.
… it ain’t too bad. I like that she’s moved on from her debut sound, but still managed to keep those catchy choruses she’s so good at.
Scandic pop up and comers Heart Machine Service are back with yet another brilliant track.
