To mark the announcement, Allah-Las are revealing their first new album track and video, directed by Robbie Simon, for “Famous Phone Figure”, watch the video below. The song cradles character sketches over delicate strains of string instruments with a careful underlining of a three-note drumming theme that casts a phantom sadness over the proceedings of an unknowable woman.

Swedish psych outfit Goat are back with a UK tour in October, including a date at the O2 ABC Glasgow. Tickets for the show go on sale on Friday 17th June at 9AM.

“I Sing In Silence,” is the A-side from the forthcoming GOAT single. The new visual was directed by Henrik Nyblom and Christofer Högberg. The directorial duo had this to offer about the video: “It was an intense experience where we could visualize our art. It’s a short trip of the life spectre. Look close and you might find easter eggs.”

Stereogum premiered the video and had this to say, “Through its distorted filmography, the video incites a celebration of this brightness and of the quiet and calm that exists, too. As a hooded figured engages with the jovial beauty in the world, they illustrate just how powerful the connectivity of it all can be…The song itself is a folksy psych-pop lope that could almost pass for Woods covering Animal Collective, so a trek into nature is highly appropriate here."

Spring King are one of the UK’s most exciting new bands, no question. But it’s not in their nature to take the easy route. From a bathroom-based de facto studio to their superb debut album ‘Tell Me If You Like To’, their story is a victory for any band plugging away endlessly in the hope of one day achieving their dreams.

‘Tell Me If You Like To’ captures the chaos and rollercoaster turns of Spring King’s previous few years. It possesses the same 100mph, blink-and-you-missed-it spirit as debut track ‘Let’s Ride’, coupled with moments of stark clarity. ‘The Summer’ is a homage to heroes The Beach Boys and a dead cert go-to anthem for 2016. ‘Rectifier’ and ‘Demons’ wrestle with fear and paranoia. ‘Who Are You?’ is the blistering garage rock sister track to ‘City.’ But throughout, these emotionally twisted songs are ready to be embraced by thousands.

Conceived and self-produced over the past year in a variety of locations, the ominous, compelling Will is a departure from 2013’s Alex Somers-produced Nepenthe. If that last record conjured images of gentle, thick fog rolling over desolate mountains, then Will is a late afternoon thunderstorm, a cathartic collision of sharp and soft textures that sounds looming and restorative all at once.

The electric current that runs through the album takes on various shapes of intoxicating instability. Featuring contributions from Thomas Arsenault (Mas Ysa), Dutch cellist Maarten Vos and percussionist, Jamie Ingalls (Chairlift, Tanlines, Beverly), Will is largely a product of ups and downs, a reflection of a life lived somewhere in between transience and standing still. The beguiling, beautifully complicated Will is the result of that curiosity, and proof of Barwick’s irresistibly engaging talent as a composer and vocalist.

In September 2016, Slim Cessna’s Auto Club is releasing its new album ‘The Commandments According to SCAC’. It has been twenty-four years since Slim Cessna parted ways with The Denver Gentlemen, that grand progenitor of the peculiar strain of Gothic Americana unique to the Mile High City, to form Slim Cessna’s Auto Club with a group of talented peers. Many bands with a long and successful run like that would stick close to its roots. But rather than rest on well-earned laurels, the Auto Club challenged itself to break with well-worn modes of operating for the new record.

Whatever the true source of this transformation, The Commandments According to SCAC’ sounds like a band marshalling its creative inspiration to mark out a new chapter of its existence. When you get to see the Auto Club tour following the album’s release, you’ll get to see an already mighty band reinvigorated by this new spirit as well as by the fire that has long burned in its collective belly.

Blasted grassland, the thin ribbon line of the freeway unspooling beneath wheels, skies stretched wide between mountaintop. It is dream music, foggy, atmospheric, the melodies you hear while you gazing out through fingerprint smeared windows into a constantly moving, metamorphing – landscape…. It makes sense then, that BRONCHO, born out of out a film project, its initial incarnation sparked when founder Ryan Lindsey was asked to create music, “to set to an early 80s punk film.” “That’s all I knew about it,” he remembers, “they were looking for songs that touched this era. And songs kept coming to me and turned something on inside of me artistically.” Lindsey found himself in the midst of prolific run of songs and he liked the idea “of starting out there and seeing where it could go.”.

What’s evolved from those first tracks there has been asteady run of success, critical accolades and two full–length albums; 2011’s Can’t Get Past the Lips,2014’s Just Enough Hip to Be Woman. And beneath it all– the music has been constantly mutating andceaselessly experimental. From that first inception as asoundtrack in 2010, BRONCHO has taken on a life of its’own – initial inspiration still there, but now pushing farbeyond the stiff confines of score. And what began asan ode to ramshackle, high–energy early punk hasbecome something deeper, weirder, and much morenuanced. The undercurrent of early 1980 punk is stillthere, but The Ramones pogo has been replaced moreoften by a kind of Love and Rockets inspired, honeyed, cotton–mouthed drift.

Oya (vocals) and Ogun (drums) found a kindred spirit in The Marassa (guitar) and emerged as a more technically accomplished, musically aggressive and energetic band.

They are lucky to have at their disposal an awesome drummer, amazing guitarist and a truly brilliant vocalist in Chantal Brown as Oya (ex ‘Do Me Bad Things’ front woman) – a new kind of power. They rock like no one else and are also a mesmerising live experience.

Formed in Blackpool (Great Britain) by brothers Larry and Vin Cassidy in 1978. Section 25 were initially mentored by Joy Division, and went on to record four albums for Factory Records between 1980 and 1986. The first of these, Always Now, combined post-punk textures with spacey psychedelia, produced by Martin "Zero" Hannett. Their third, From The Hip, produced in 1984 by New Order's Bernard Sumner, explored electro terrain, and spawned the oft-sampled techno hit Looking From A Hilltop.

Now recognized as a leading genre band, Section 25 continue to play across the UK,Europe and America. The band contributed three tracks to the Warners/Rhino box set Factory Records: Communications 1978-1992, while the oft re-issued From The Hip was lauded as one of 1000 Albums To Hear Before You Die by The Guardian newspaper.

Whitney make casually melancholic music that combines the wounded drawl of Townes Van Zandt, the rambunctious energy of Jim Ford, the stoned affability of Bobby Charles, the American otherworldliness of The Band, and the slack groove of early Pavement. Their debut, Light Upon the Lake, is due in June on Secretly Canadian, and it marks the culmination of a short, but incredibly intense, creative period for the band. To say that Whitney is more than the sum of its parts would be a criminal understatement. Formed from the core of guitarist Max Kakacek and singing drummer Julien Ehrlich, the band itself is something bigger, something visionary, something neither of them could have accomplished alone.

Classic and modern at the same time, they revel in concrete details, evocative turns of phrase, and thorny emotions that don't have exact names. These ten songs on Light Upon the Lake sound like they could have been written at any time in the last fifty years. Ehrlich and Kakacek emerge as imaginative and insightful songwriting partners, impressive in their scope and restraint as they mold classic rock lyricism into new and personal shapes without sound revivalist or retro. “I'm searching for those golden days,” sings Ehrlich, with a subtle ripple of something that sounds like hope, on the track “Golden Days”. It's a song that defines Whitney as a band. “There's a lot of true feeling behind these songs,” says Ehrlich. “We wanted them to have a part of our personalities in them. We wanted the songs to have soul.” - Stephen Duesner

Dinosaur Jr. - Give a Glimpse of What Yer Not Let's face facts -- in 2016 it is remarkable that there's a new Dinosaur Jr. album to go ape over. After all, the original line-up of the band (J Mascis, Lou Barlow & Murph) only recorded three full albums during their initial run in the 1980s. Everyone was gob-smacked when they reunited in 2005. Even more so when they opted to stay together, as they have for 11 years now. And with the release of Give a Glimpse, this trio has released more albums in the 21st Century than they did in the 20th. It's enough to make a man take a long, thoughtful slug of maple-flavored bourbon and count some lucky stars.

With all the insanity that is stalking the Earth in 2016, it's nice to have something to rely on. Who'd've dared to think it'd be Dinosaur Jr.?

TAV FALCO & THE PANTHER BURNS

Tav Falco & The Panther Burns
Sunday 5th June // Glasgow CCA
Doors 7PM // 18+

Led by the one-of-a-kind Tav Falco, Panther Burns head to CCA Glasgow on Sunday 5th June. For those familiar with Panther Burns, they’ll already know it is not just about the music. Tav Falco is one of the truly original and romantic forces in American music - the voice that America lost and found. They are best known for having been part of a set of bands emerging in the late 1970s and early 1980s who helped nationally popularize the blending of blues, country, and other American traditional music styles with rock music among groups playing in alternative music and punk music venues of the time. The earliest and most renowned of these groups to imbue these styles with expressionist theatricality and primitive spontaneity were The Cramps, largely influenced by rockabilly music.

Tav Falco was post modern when postmodern wasn't cool. The singer-guitarist who has collaborated with filmmaker Kenneth Anger and rockabilly pioneer Charlie Feathers, has spent most of the past two decades crafting a revisionist pop culture history - one that seamlessly fuses the aesthetics of Dean Martin and Jerry Lee Lewis". - David Sprague - Variety

Okkervil River have announced new album 'Away' and share new song 'Okkervil River R.I.P'. We are delighted to announce that Will Sheff & co. will play at Glasgow Stereo Cafe Bar on Sunday 13th November. Some words from Will Sheff on the new album:

"The new Okkervil River album is called Away. I didn’t plan to make it and initially wasn’t sure if it was going to be an Okkervil River album or if I’d ever put it out. I wrote the songs during a confusing time of transition in my personal and professional life and recorded them quickly with a brand new group of musicians. I got together the best New York players I could think of, people whose playing and personalities I was fans of and who came more out of a jazz or avant garde background, and we cut the songs live in one or two takes – trying to keep things as natural and immediate as possible – over three days in a studio on Long Island that hosts the Neve 8068 console which recorded Steely Dan’s Aja and John Lennon’s Double Fantasy. Iasked Marissa Nadler to sing on it and got the composer Nathan Thatcher to write some beautiful orchestral arrangements, we recorded them with the classical ensemble yMusic and then I mixed the record with Jonathan Wilson out in Los Angeles."
