Out This Week - 7th November 2011



Cloud Control - Death Cloud


It's been a good year so far for Australian quartet Cloud Control, seeing them win the Aussie version of the Mercury music prize for their debut album 'Bliss Release' and gaining a host of new fans as a result. Many will be familiar with 'Death Cloud' already as it's been a single in their homeland and was a bonus track on the album, but this week sees it gaining a full UK single release. About time too!

A free download of 'Death Cloud' is available on Cloud Control's website

David Lynch - Pinky's Dream


Film director David Lynch has dabbled in the music world before, most notably with Julee Cruise and Angelo Badalamenti, but the big man has recently recorded a solo album, the first fruit of which was last year's 'Good Day Today' single. The album 'Crazy Clown Time' is out this week and it kicks off with this excellent collaboration with Karen O from Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Grab it free below.

Keep Shelly In Athens - Our Own Dream EP


Their economy may be tits up and their political situation a shambles but Greece is making a rare mark on the international music world with the chilled-out beats of duo Keep Shelly In Athens. Having made one of the best songs of last year in 'Running Out Of You', they return with a new EP 'Our Own Dream' this week. And rather wonderfully they've made three tracks available as free downloads.

Wu Lyf - We Bros


The once enigmatic Wu Lyf (World United Lucifer Youth Foundation) have recently begun doing both interviews and photo shoots but their music remains dark, spooky and mysterious. New single 'We Bros' is a reworked version of the track from debut album 'Go Tell Fire To The Mountain'. It's been online for a few weeks and is now out on vinyl too.

Dog Is Dead - Hands Down


Nottingham indie-pop quintet Dog Is Dead formed in 2008 and have so far released two EPs and three singles. New single 'Hands Down' was out digitally at the end of October and on vinyl from today. It's another one of those songs that seems unassuming at first before unleashing a chorus so killer it should probably be wearing a muzzle. Top stuff.
