You think you got nothing shiny and new for New Tracks Weekend, then, BOOM. Everything at once. Brand-spanking new singles from Sheer, Kindling and Bleak House headline the weekend. All three bands have a sterling reputation for quality output in these studios, and deserve all the kudos they get. But that’s not all! We go long with the new album from Tape Waves, always sparkling: fall in love with Here To Fade. New music from PNW’s Castles, about to embark on tour. New music from Barlow… we weren’t familiar, but drop the needle anywhere, expect jaws to drop. Castlebeat. Jellyskin. A sneak peak at Fuzz Club Records signing, New Horror: emotive JAMC tones as heard through an air vent (holy crap!). We catch up with VHS Dream, Tiny Fireflies, Velódromo, Emma Ruth Rundle (new single is cripplingly lovely), and Dead Rabbits’ fractured new single. Finally, we top it all off with a healthy dose of Fir Cone Children. New album Fircology takes their engagingly quirky approach, and broadens their appeal with fresh tunefulness.

Don’t forget last weekend’s new jewels, including Youthmemory, The Churchill Garden, Night Shapes, Vibrissae (on stage tonight at Seagaze Festival, with a packed bill!), Sketch Jets, Baby Honey, Kid Foguete, Night Flowers, Lost Film, Great Black Night, Water, Laura Rai, Lilith Cage and much more!
