Five For Free #22



Little Racer - Little Racer


Good old Brooklyn spits out another great new band. Little Racer recorded their first EP last year and have recently been picked up by the excellent UK label Young And Lost Club, who will shortly be releasing the trio's debut single. Their sound is a rich tapestry of "surf-indie-motown-pop" and is pretty impressive for a three-piece. They don't seem short of ides either.

A Classic Education - Baby, It's Fine


Jonathan Clancy must be a busy man. The Italy based Canadian has just released a split single with Shimmering Stars under his solo guise of His Clancyness and is following it the debut album from his band A Classic Education. 'Call It Blazing' is out Monday and is full of lovable, ramshackle guitar-pop goodness. Download 'Baby, It's Fine' and see for yourself.

DZ Deathrays - Gebbie Street


Australians DZ Deathrays are currently making waves in the UK. They're appearing on this year's NME tour and also stopping off at the SWN Festival. Recent single 'Gebbie Street' straddles the mid-point between dance and rock in the same way that Death From Above 1979 did, with crunching guitars and four-to-the-floor beats.

Gospel Music - This Town Doesn't Have Enough Bars For The Both Of Us 


This coming week will see the release of 'How To Get To Heaven From Jacksonville, Fl', the debut album from Gospel Music. Taken from it is the excellent lo-fi shuffle of 'This Town Doesn't Have Enough Bars For The Both Of Us'. With titles this long it's no surprise to learn that Gospel Music is the side project of Black Kids bassist Owen Holmes.
