Out This week - 3rd June 2013

Misty Miller - Tea In China


We've been championing teen garage sensation Misty Miller for several months now, and this week she releases her second EP 'Next To You'. If you follow the site you're probably already familiar with EP cuts 'Anything For You' and 'Next To You' which we've previewed, but we'd recommend buying the whole thing as it's another wonderful EP. Here's further proof with 'Tea In China'.

Dan Webb - Sleep (feat. Ashleigh Cummings)


Australian musician Dan Webb is releasing a song a month for the whole of 2013. He's not the first to do so and probably won't be the last, but his offering for June is this rather nice piece of electronic dreampop that features guest vocals from Ashleigh Cummings. The great thing (other than the tunes) about this project is that each track is available for free during the month in question.

Magic Arm - Put Your Collar Up


It was way back in 2009 that Manchester one-man-band Magic Arm (Marc Rigelsford to give him his real name) grabbed our attention with the awesome 'Widths & Heights'. Well this week he returns with his second album 'Images Rolling' which features the single 'Put Your Collar Up', another tremendous mix of indie, orchestral pop and electronica.

Air Marshal Landing - Little Town


This Canadian trio are currently based in Toronto and release their debut full-length 'You Used To Be Me' this week. Air Marshal Landing have been around since 2008 and make very fine guitar-pop songs which are full of melody and often lively, much like current single 'Little Town' which, if you're a fan of both pop and guitars, should be pretty irresistible.

OBLIGATORY RECORD OF THE WEEK

North Atlantic Oscillation - Chirality


Under-appreciated Scots North Atlantic Oscillation are heading out on tour this week and to coincide with this they're releasing a 2CD set which includes their album 'Fog Electric' which was originally released last year, and also the more recent 'Charility EP' which will be available physically for the first time. The title-track of said EP is a bit of a stunner and could possibly be put in the same bracket as someone like Yeti lane in the way it effortlessly mixes electronics with rock and shoegaze, whilst also finding the time to sound a bit like the Beach Boys in places. What's not to like?
