The Weekly Catch-Up (w/e 9th August)

Happy Saturday to one and all, it's that time of week again where we delve into the past 7 days to re-live the best new music from all over the world. New videos, covers, new tracks and even some new music from IAI faves MOATS!

Bel Esprit
Bel Esprit - Lose My Mind

Southampton based Bel Esprit have today given us the privilege to unveil their brand new single "Lose My Mind" with the B-Side too called "The Mad Ones". The band are one of the south-coasts top up and coming bands and with this latest single that's pretty much a dead cert now!

Moats - Jeff Buckley 

The track makes use of the bands strong-points, Matt's lovely gruff vocals, Nathan's relentless drumming, James and Will's tight guitar skills. This track is a long way off from their early stuff, but all bands evolve, I'm liking their new sound!


Ben Howard - End of the Affair

Ben Howard has unveiled a dramatic first track as a taster to his forthcoming second album this evening (5th August). "End Of The Affair" is now streaming just below if you hadn't noticed! Also details of the second album will be announced imminently.

Rae Morris - Cold (PANES Remix)

Rae Morris has unveiled PANES' huge remix of her track Cold ft Fryars, out now. Rae will be playing festivals throughout the summer, including headlining the BBC Introducing Stage at Reading & Leeds Festival in 3 weeks time.

Happyness - You Come To Kill Me?!

New music is revealed by Happyness today, in the shape of "You Come To Kill Me?!", a brand new track taken from the forthcoming "Anything I Do Is All Right" EP. The EP, released digitally on September 1st will cap a string of sold out live dates that has seen them support Jamie T!

Passport to Stockholm - Imperfections

One of the surprises last year at Gloucester's Underground Festival was Passport To Stockholm, and it's pretty much safe to say we've been following them since. And today the band has uploaded a brand new track called "Imperfections", which is odd because I can't find anything wrong with it!

Pixel Fix - Still

The Oxford band's latest EP "Running Thin" is out now (4th August), and you can stream the final song off the EP here, which is the rather delightful ambient track "Still". Mainly an instrumental apart from some airy whispers and yelps the guitars too help you properly relax.

Swoons - Nothing to Explain

The Buckinghamshire based band have released a brand new demo called "Nothing To Explain". The Bluesy band have had a good year with some great support slots and are basically celebrating by giving away this new demo.
