Youth Man new EP up for grabs with London and NYC shows to celebrate

Youth Man are finally (it feels like bloody ages eh) back with a brand new EP and a headline show at The Lexington on Sunday to unleash it to you, the grateful (we imagine) and wonderous folk of The Good Ship Pop! It's called 5 songs, it sounds like a cataclysmic clash of everything that slays in this world, and it's available in very limited marbled 12". You bloody need it in your life... Did we tell you they were heading over to Afropunk in NYC to play that too? Well they are!

Reissuing Our First American Friends and smashing up a Tubelord test pressing

“Whatever you want to call that smashing up of songs and then stitching the bits back together, Tubelord do it, and they do it very well indeed” said the BBC… So when we were offered the chance to repress one of the greatest alt albums of a generation Our First American Friends, we thought we’d go for broke. Getting a pretty much priceless test pressing from Dave (Tubelord), we did the only acceptable thing, smashing it into many pieces and sending it to our pressing plant who pressed the fragments into the new records. Therefore – each of the special pressings (ltd to 250) have a piece of the original vinyl dusted into the discs in splatter form.

DZ Deathrays hit no.4 in the Australian Charts

Bloody hell! More like Bloody Lovely though (i suppose), as the new DZ Deathrays album has only gone and hit the top 5 in Australia. I guess it's no surprise as it's absolutely brilliant, but in the very unlikely circumstace you haven't listened to it - please do me a favour and go do it now! 

I first saw this band on the end of the pier at TGE many years ago and they were ripping the room apart - a mass of sweaty bodies having the best time all emboldened with mega-riffs and exceptional explosions of melodic soundscape wonder. I made a vow to myself that night that one day we must sign them, and sign them we have... Finally - for album number 3 'Bloody Lovely' which, conveniently is the best LP yet, and out this very day!! You should definitely listen to it. In fact, go listen to it now. Or buy it on vinyl/CD along with a splendid shirt or two if you're that kinda person
