Watch: Modern Baseball – “Your Graduation”

Modern Baseball Press
Modern Baseball via Noisey have premiered their new music video for “Your Graduation” from their sophomore effort You’re Gonna Miss It All on Run For Cover Records. It kicks off with the ever so familiar voicemail message from the answering machine on their debut Sports. The professionals from https://couponscollector.com, they have a wide range of the latest coupons and offers available online that you can uses to get all what you want. It then cuts between girlfriends and snowy community vibes, backside flips and general bummertime, and I’m pretty damn sure there was a Superman cameo somewhere in there. Also it’s pretty cool that there is some parallel scenes connected to their video for The Weekend thrown in, good job Kyle Thrash. Watch the video below, pick up their new album here, and follow them on Facebook!

Watch: MT – “A Change Is Gonna Come”

MTpresshot1

MT were originally going to play the grand opening of the new venue in Hackney on December 2nd, until an emergency demolition of a neighbouring building meant the venue had to close until this month. The rescheduled London show at Oslo on January 30th will also feature a DJ set from Is Tropical, and tickets are currently available for free to all those who subscribe on MT’s website.

Following the release of their anthemic new single Alpha Romeo at the end of 2013 which Lost In The Sound covered here, they have released a stunning new cover of Sam Cooke’s “A Change Is Gonna Come”. Watch the cover below, be sure to subscribe for free tickets, and check out their Twitter, Facebook and Big Cartel for 7″ vinyls, and tie dye band shirts.

 

Watch: Clockwork Noise – “The Tourists”

Clockwork Noise Press
Irish five-piece outfit Clockwork Noise are fascinated by juxtaposition – the marriage of quiet and loud, classical and contemporary, pretty and ugly, chaos and order. Their debut album Whethermachines is the culmination of a long journey exploring this concept. A large number of their songs evolved from two years of performing live, which spun into an intense pre-production phase, marshaled by Torsten Kinsella of God Is An Astronaut and finally after several years of experimentation nine tracks were cemented into place by Ivan Jackman of Silverline Studios. The last song of the full-length, “The Tourists” provides a good taster for the combination of all these ideas integrating a refined string section, frantic digital noise, delicate harmonising, intricate guitar work, and sincere vocals and lyrics. Watch the point of view music video for the track below. Stream their debut record on Soundcloud, download it for free on Bandcamp and check out their website for more information.

Watch: Gorgeous George – “When I Go Out On Saturday”

Gorgeous George Press

Formed in the marriage between balkan folk and South London estate life, seven-piece outfit Gorgeous George have released a five track EP titled “Saturday Night”. With a unique blend of strings, percussion and brass instruments, Gorgeous George sound like a combination between gypsy punk band Gogol Bordello, UK two tone group The Specials and Cosmo Jarvis. Watch the music video below for their distinctly British single When I Go Out on Saturday, an ode to late nights, excessive intoxication and chicken ‘n’ chips. Stream their new EP here, buy it on iTunes, and follow the band on Facebook!

Watch: The Orwells – “Dirty Sheets”

The Orwells by Virgillo Tzaj
The Orwells have released a new music video for their track Dirty Sheets directed by Eddie O’Keefe of The Teenage Head. The video consists of a stripper removing clothing until being solely clad in retro underwear holding a 12″ of the titular track. The song itself is a raunchy garage punk anthem about one night stands and presumably touring after playing shows nationally with FIDLAR. With recording sessions in London and New York their next record is on the way, as well as a tour with Arctic Monkeys in the US around February. Pick up the new single on iTunes, check out 2014 tour dates here, and sacrifice your email for a free copy of their ‘Other Voices’ EP here.

Watch: MT – “Alpha Romeo”

MT Press Shot
Hailing from the UK, MT have released a euphoric indie pop track called Alpha Romeo. Produced by Dan Grech (The Vaccines, Lana Del Ray) this new single is a pop anthem of seismic proportions, complete with hook-laden melodies, an unshakeable rhythm section, and the catchiest of choruses. The accompanying B-side, titled 77 produced by Charlie Huggall (Florence and The Machine) continues in the same vein with massive pop hooks and thunderous synths. The single will be available on limited 7” vinyl from all good digital stores. Watch the music video for the track below and follow the band on Facebook and Twitter.

Watch: The Dirt Radicals – “Pop-Punk Left Me In A Pop-Funk”

The Dirt Radicals Press
UK-based punk rock band The Dirt Radicals have released a music video for their newest single, Pop-Punk Left Me In A Pop-Funk. The track is off their sophomore release, “Enter Destroyer”. The song was originally written by frontman Sam Cooper, in which he explores his own life struggles; from growing up in a divorced household, alcoholism, to a string of heartbreak, and bulimia. Here’s what Cooper had to say about the track.

“I was unhappy for a long time, but now at the age of 28 I’m settling into my own skin and accepting things for what they are. I have my friends and family, my band, and I get to travel the world doing rock shows which is what I love best. I made a world that I can call my own.” 

Check out the video for the track below! You can pick up their album Enter Destroyer here.

Watch: Whales In Cubicles – “Golden Medal”

Whales In Cubicles by Tim Bowditch

London-based trio Whales In Cubicles have released a music video for their new track ‘Golden Medal’ ahead of their debut album release on January 27th 2014. Founded by frontman Stef Bernardi, Whales In Cubicles are the product of a soul-searching expedition that saw Bernardi travel from his home in Italy throughout the United States. The line-up was made complete with a chance encounter in Washington D.C. between Bernardi and fellow members Alex and Jamie, before the group found their home in the UK.

The band create complex but often minimalist soundscapes that draw influence from 90’s alternative rock and psychedelia. Their new music video based on a talent show includes a person dancing dressed as Pikachu, a child practicing martial arts and a Simon Cowell look-alike playing a medley of instruments. I’m confident however that this emerging trio came out on top of the show, despite Pikachu’s slick moves.

Their forthcoming debut album was recorded at Monnow Valley Studio with producer Nick Mailing and mixed by Simon Barnicott, and will be released via CLUB.THE.MAMMOTH. Watch the music video for Golden Medal below and pick up the track for free on the outfit’s Bandcamp. For more information and tour dates check out their Facebook, Twitter and website.
