Money For Rope - Ten Times

From Melbourne's rich music scene come Money For Rope who've just thrown out 'Ten Times', a delightfully enthusiastic and melodic guitar-pop tune which has a surfy twang and a chorus that's as big as their homeland.

The Broken Needles - Bound To Fade

Also from Melbourne, The Broken Needles release their second album 'Holy Coast' today, and from it is the gorgeously lush and cinematic baroque-pop of 'Bound To Fade', a song with a mightily impressive arrangement that should be on heavy rotation just about everywhere.

Seabright - Fall For You

Californian artist Seabright has taken the very essence of what gives songs a summery vibe, bottled it, shaken it about until it's a wonderfully skewed psychedelic liquor and poured it out for us to lap up. 'Fall For You' sounds like sunshine from a parallel universe.

Leggy - Sweet Teeth

Blasting us with some beautiful melodic fuzz are new Cincinnati band Leggy. 'Sweet Teeth' is a surging ball of garage-punk energy and is taken from the band's debut EP 'Cavity Castle' which is available to download in full for absolutely nothing.

Cloud Seeding - Kaleidocycle II

Conceived as a singles project for Brooklyn guitarist Kevin Serra, Cloud Seeding's seventh release is an atmospheric, psychedelic instrumental that very much fits the name 'Kaleidocycle', even though we're not sure exactly what that means. It's stellar stuff though.

Faux Flux - You Know

'You Know' finds Brighton trio Faux Flux taking their electronic indie sound, nailing a funky beat and some retro synths to it and then letting a pop melody shine through, resulting in a song with some crossover potential and a distinctly chilled groove.

Formes - The Power Of Now Part 1

Sometimes, improvised jams can be excruciatingly dull. If you get it right though, then you can uncover a new musical path into the unknown that listeners will be more than willing to follow. That's what Dewsbury's Formes did recently, so here's the first part of three-section psych odyssey 'The Power Of Now'.
