New Music This Week (w/e March 3rd)

Here are this week’s New Music choices from the RockYouLike jury:

The Shins – Painting A Hole

Heartworms, the first album in 5 years from James Mercer comes out next Friday, and is one of our most anticipated of 2017. This is the fourth track available from it, which premiered ysterday


Goldfrapp – Anymore (Joe Goddard Remix)

The new album Silver Eye is out at the end of this month.  Joe Goddard of Hot Chip has reimxed the lead single:


New Pornographers – High Ticket Attractions

Right now, nobody uses analogue synth as well as these guys


Laura Marling – Nothing, Not Nearly

Sweet Americana with added scuzz guitar, sir?  Step right this way:


Lorde – Green Light

‘Bout time. Just the 7 million YouTube views in one day, then.


Paul McCartney – My Brave Face (Original Demo)

From the super deluxe reissue of Macca’s 1989 album Flowers In The Dirt.  Maximum Costello on this cut.  Hear his direct influence on the bridge into the chorus: “Ever since you went away….”


New Album Of The Week:

Temples – Volcano

Sounding very assured on their second album, Temples are a band who are genuinely attempting to bring something different to the jaded indie-white-boys-with-guitars format.  “Mystery Of Pop” is a treat:


Reissue Of The Week

Monkees – Head Alternate

Bonkers and brilliant, a vinyl reissue for this album, featuring different versions of the original album tracks, including Tork on vocals for “Can You Dig It?”, and Davy Jones’ “Slow Verse” on “Daddy’s Song”.  Limited edition gold vinyl and gold cover

Over and out!
