Tracks Out This Week

5 hot new tracks, pop pickers.

The Kills - DNA



Cooler than thou indie-rock due return after taking a couple of years out to mess around with Jack White (Alison Mosshart) and mess around with Kate Moss (Jamie Hince) to release 4th album 'Blood Pressures' this week. Pick up Dead Weather soundalike and album highlight 'DNA' for free.

Mazes - Most Days



Information on the history Mazes is a little scarce, their website doesn't have much of a bio. I first heard about them late last year and if my memory serves me correctly one of them used to be in The Beep Seals. It looks like we will have a debut album in the not too distant future, but until then, here's there new single 'Too Soon'.

Cults - You Know What I Mean



Cults' star looks to be on the rise thanks to the extra promotion from signing to Lily Allen's record label -  it's not at the expense of the tunes though. New single 'You Know What I Mean' is as sweet as ever, this time with a hint of a doo-wop influence. They may be just that little bit 'alternative' to get into platinum sales territory... but you never know. Not sure if this is the official video but it kind of works well.

The Joy Formidable - Whirring



This track may have been around since 2009's free download album 'A Balloon Called Moaning'  but for The Joy Formidable's official debut album 'The Big Roar' they've stuck a foot pump up it's arse and blown it up into a full on shoegaze anthem. The single edit is streaming below, but it's worth seeking out the full 6 minute album version.

OBLIGATORY RECORD OF THE WEEK

Cold Cave - Villains Of The Moon




Trading in the more lo-fi electronica of debut album 'Love Comes Close' for a much more epic breed of synth-tronica, new album 'Cherish The Light Years' could see Wesley Eisold and co reach a wider audience, with some reviews already mentioning words like 'stadium'. Cold Cave have certainly taken a step forward and produced an album that surpasses their previous work. Grab album closer and new single 'Villains Of The Moon' for free below, where you can also stream the album in it's entirety and sign up for another free track.
