Permanent Collection - One Thousand Sins
We gave you a little freebie from former Young Prisms man Jason Hendardy's new band Permanent Collection last week when they released their debut album 'Newly Wed, Nearly Dead', but the more songs we hear from them the better they begin to sound. So the good news is that they've made another album track, the awesome, shoegazey 'One Thousand Sins' available free.

Kitty Pryde - Hittin Lix
The original Kitty Pryde was a character from Marvel Comics (we had to Google this, honest) but the Kitty Pryde in question here is about to release her debut album and 'Hittin Lix' is the first single taken from it. Broadly speaking you could call her a rapper but the wide range of genres and influences mark Kitty out as a far more eclectic and interesting artist, as shown on this sinister piece of trip-hop.

White Denim - Darlene
Last year, Texan garage rock quartet White Denim released an EP called 'Takes Place In Your Work Space'. Perhaps these sessions were recorded through the thick fug of mind expanding smoke, but it would appear that they forgot to include the two best recordings from the sessions on the EP. Now they've seen sense and made them available to download. We've gone for the sweet and melodic 'Darlene'.

Night Sins - Spectral Bliss
Moving back to darker places are Philadelphia electro-goths Night Sins who will be releasing their cheerfully titled debut album 'New Grave' in the autumn. This gloomy but great track 'Spectral Bliss' is like a backcombed trip back to 1983 (and is released on tape, natch). It's been sunny out all day, now we've put this on it's started raining. Funny that. I hope their eyeliner doesn't run.

Cousin Marnie - 'Til Death Do Us Part
As we're being a little bleak and sombre, how about a murder ballad to finish off with? Oh go on then... Cousin Marnie won't be releasing her debut single until later this year but in the meantime she's introducing herself with the jovial ''Til Death Do Us Part' which is about psychotic episodes, corpses, insanity and the desire to kill.
