Gemma Dunleavy – Better 4 U
The Mixed-Tape: Cast across a sonically rich canvas, the sound of Gemma Dunleavy’s latest offering ‘Better 4 U’ is an intricate tapestry of vivid beats that set the perfect backdrop for Dunleavy’s vocal weaving as it layers and intwines with the music.
Girl Band – Shoulderblades
Taken from Girl Band’s forthcoming sophomore studio album The Talkies (due out via Rough Trade on September 27th), ‘Shoulderblades’ finds the group doing what they do best, contorting and twisting noise into a glorious cacophony of tense guitars, imposing drum beats and raw unstrained vocals.
Elkin – Cut My Tongue

Pursued By Dogs – Your Bones
Pursued By Dogs return with the spacious, icy atmosphere of ‘Your Bones’, a brooding track that builds upon a weighty electronic backdrop and opens up into large jumps of dynamism, giving the song a strong textural ebb and flow.
