Another lovely track from ghost folk newcomers Die Mason Die. This is the B side to their new single, You're Lonely. Building nicely from a laid back beat, there are hints of Lamb, Grandaddy and even Sparklehorse in the lo-fi drum sounds, and a richer vocal than the A side that really shows off Sam Mason's voice.

Check out the absolutely beautiful new single from Die Mason Die. While there are echoes from their earlier track, Lost, there are also tons of other subtle influences I'm struggling to put my finger on. My favourite non-electronic track of 2013. Boom.
What's that you say? You wish Homework, your favourite Scottish shouty electro outfit, would couple their latest track All I See with some disorientating visuals? You're in luck my friend. Bandcamp reckons they have no upcoming gigs. But I'm not sure that's true. Stay tuned on the FB page just in case.
Deep, moody sounds from newcomers Homecoming, and I love the slightly disorientating visuals on the video. Don't expect to be dancing around the room, but the production has real depth - take off your 'Beats by Dre' headphones, throw them under a bus, buy some headphones that are actually good (in comparison you could even dig out your old red and blue Gameboy buds and you'd be on to a winner) and enjoy.
I could say a lot about the next Communion. I could say that you should get your tickets ASAP. I could also say that I'll be there. But I'll probably just skip all that and say watch this and then carry on with whatever it was that you were doing before. Wouldn't take as long, but would be a bit less boring.
Got a huge amount of love for this, lastest track from Die Mason Die, and its video. The cinematography is actually really simple but captures the concept of a journey beautifully. I must be going soft in my old age. Pinpoint individual elements of the sound and you can hear all sorts of influences but the sum of its parts is unique enough to make it a little bit special. I hear a live show is on its way on or around 23rd November somewhere in London so keep those peely eyes peeled.
I've been excited to post this. Such a beautiful track. And made all the better by them agreeing to whack this up on Soundcloud, just for me, just for you to listen to. The whole self-titled EP is awesome but Arctic House really stood out for me, as one of the most genuine tracks I've heard in a while. It makes you remember that lyrics are there to be listened to, and actually heard, not just as a human element to a riff someone wanted to put out as a tune.
Gold. Absolute gold. It's like someone got all the best things from the 80s and ground them up in a huge bowl and poured the resulting fluffy mess down a microphone. The synth leads are so wide it's addictive, I just want to listen to it louder and louder on bigger and better cans. If you need me, convince yourself you don't because I'll be lying in a dark room listening to this on repeat for some time.
You should check out Pale Seas' new stuff, Bodies & My Own Mind, but first check this as it's a keeper. It's a simple melody that reminds me of the nineties, a bit (just a smidgen) of Oasis in there, a slight American tinge to the vocals but not in a bad way. Lovely Sunday morning stuff. I could eat a bacon sandwich to this I could.
It's not exactly brand new this track but I don't actually care much for this fact. If you haven't heard this before you are in for a tasty treat tastier than any tasty treat I may or may not have given you in the past.
It is quite frankly the most beautiful tune I have heard in years. Disagree? Didn't think so.
