The Weekly Catch-Up (w/e 16th 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 one of the best up and coming singer-songwriters - Billy Lockett.

Billy Lockett

Billy Lockett - Old Man

Billy Lockett is fast establishing himself as one of music's best-kept secrets. A singer-songwriter of prodigious talent hailing from Northampton, and his brand new single "Old Man" is released in September, ahead of his third headline tour of the UK.

This is one of many reasons why he has got a dedicated fan-base and has a lot of love from Radio 1 and XFM. You can scroll on down to check out the new song!

Fake Furs - Hot In Herre (Nelly Cover)

I know 'here' is spelt wrong, but what are you going to do, the track is from the early 00's, Nelly was trying to be 'hip' I guess. But Fake Furs have brought this track into 2014 and 12 years after the original track was released and the LA band have brought in some lagged angular guitar riffs, thick basslines akin to the Nelly version and some shouty vocals!

Be sure to check it out below!

Polarsets - Parasols 

The second single taken from the album of the same name "Parasols". You can get the breezy new single from the Newcastle based band now with a pre-order of the début album!

"Parasols" (the album) is out September 21st.

Bastille - bad_news

This is the first taste of new material from the band, after touring "Bad Blood" and tracks off of their début LP for over three years now this is a great step forwards for one of the stand-out bands of the past two years!

This is the B-Side to the "Oblivion" 7", but unlike most of the other B-Sides on their singles this is a brand new song rather an old demo. Enjoy!!!

Kasabian - Sesame Street/Good Vibrations

Kasabian have performed a mash-up of the Sesame Street theme tune with "Good Vibrations" by The beach Boys while in sessions for Australian radio station Triple J.


Tori Amos - Creep (Radiohead Cover)

We found this utter gem of a cover via Rolling Stone and is sees Tori Amos put her own sexy spin on a Radiohead classic, it is of course "Creep", a song the band don't perform any more - sadly.

Scroll on down to get a hard on!

Amber Run - Pilot

Amber Run have released the video for their new single and EP title track "Pilot", the EP is out September 21st on RCA Victor. With a strong following already the band are looking to 2015 with their sights set high!

Alt-J - Every Other Freckle

You can listen to the new cut below! The new song is going to be on their brand new album "This Is All Yours", which also features "Left Hand Free" and "Hunger of the Pine".

The album is out 22nd of September.
