Hatchie, Kira Puru, Mall Grab & Real Lies, NO ZU, Roc Marciano, The Drums, The Polyphonic Spree!

Alex Lahey - Newsreader

Lahey announced an expanded edition of her latest album The Answer Is Always Yes this week, set to feature a few new cuts from the album sessions, including the stripped back and emotional Newsreader. Alex Lahey's new album The Answer Is Always Yes (Expanded Edition) is out October 6 via Liberation Records.

Bar Italia - my little tony

Prolific, rocking London post-punks Bar Italia announced their second full-length album of the year with a delightfully fuzzy new single. Bar Italia’s new album The Twits is out November 3 via Matador.

Chelsea Wolfe - Dusk

While we wait for a new album from American doom-folk icon Wolfe, we're blessed with an engaging, downtempo new single.

DMA'S - Jai Alai (Hatchie Version)

As DMA'S head off on their largest Australian tour to date (that we caught up with them about here), they unveil a stunning Hatchie rework of album cut Jai Alai.

Kira Puru - All My Boyfriends

Aussie pop fave Kira Puru returns with a nostalgic nod to the charming sounds of the early 2000s (after dealing with a bit of social media bullshit).

Mall Grab & Real Lies - End Credits

One of Australia’s biggest dance music exports Mall Grab teams up with London pop-duo Real Lies for a euphoric cut of atmospheric vocal breakbeats.

NO ZU - Last Words

After saying goodbye to fans with farewell shows in March, we’re blessed with some final music from Naarm/Melbourne’s iconic inventors of the “Heat Beat” sound with a delightful cover of post-punks 23 Skidoo’s Last Words.

Roc Marciano - Chris Angel

In a huge cross-generational hip-hop collab, Marciano's trademark laidback raps pair perfectly with veteran, influential producer Pete Rock's string-sampling beat.

The Drums - The Flowers

As NYC indie faves The Drums gear up for the release of their sixth studio album we've got the latest taste with a rollicking cut of jangly goodness. The Drums' new album Jonny is out October 13 via Anti-.

The Polyphonic Spree - Galloping Seas

Nearly 10 years on from the last studio album, legendary American choral indie rockers TPS announced their new record with the epic and majestic sounds of Galloping Seas (Section 44). The Polyphonic Spree's new album Salvage Enterprise is out November 17 via Good Records Recordings.
