It’s been a while since I’ve blogged, but this tune hit our inbox today and caught my ear. The Radio Dept. have released their first single in four years, entitled Death to Fascism, and it’s very enjoyable. But does the single mean some more music is on the way from the Swedish threesome? There is no official word yet, but it’s been four years since Clinging To A Scheme, so I would be hoping so.
The words on the wall in the cover art above read “Smrt fasizmu, sloboda narodu”, or “Death to Fascism, freedom to the people”, which is a quotation attributed to Yugoslav partisan freedom fighter Stjepan Filipović. The single is being released in time for the upcoming Swedish election and tells us where the band’s political views lie, but it could also mean that no album will follow.
The track is available for a free download via the Labrador Records soundcloud page. Give it a listen below.
Almost forgot about posting this one!! June was a month that jumped by way too fast – with plenty of new music, here are a few tracks that have been on on rotation. The lovely and ever improving Superhumanoids make in there there twice, starting out and closing off the playlist.
“Two Weeks” is the very first song to be revealed from FKA twigs’ highly-anticipated debut album LP1, which is set for release in North America on August 12th, 2014 on Young Turks. The video, directed by very talented Nabil, is a soft reveal to a powerful visual representation of Twigs.
She’s got a few tour dates coming up, check that out plus album track-listing below.
Crystal Fighters got in touch with us recently with a heads up to the release of there new track ‘Love Alight’, and here it is. A frantic and uplifting dance-pop track, not too far off what they have become well know for, and pretty perfect to round out the week.
This is the first piece of new music from the band since the release of Cave Rave last year. The single is set to be released on August 4th via Zirkulo/PIAS. The band are ready to head out on tour in Europe over the summer, and will hopefully make it out stateside too, I caught them last year at Glasslands in Brooklyn and that show was a highlight of last year.

I’ve been quietly enjoying Glass Animals’ progression over the past few months, track after track I’ve been hooked. Their latest, ‘Pools’ has been given an animated video treatment by director Rafael Bonilla, its a vivid interpretation of the track that ties that brings to life its psychedelic vibe.
Glass Animals have the same type of intrigue as Alt-J, but with a more beat heavy sound. The band are currently on tour – and well worth a ticket purchase.
It’s no surprise that Paul Epworth picked up on the band, with Glass Animals being the first signing to his label Wolf Tone. The bands debut album ZABA will be released on June 9th.
