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.
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

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.

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”.

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

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.

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
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.
