Noel Gallagher Shares Lost Oasis Demo Track "Don't Stop..."

Former Oasis rocker Noel Gallagher has shared a lost demo from the band called "Don't Stop...".

Gallagher words: "Hey there dudes and dollies.

"Like the rest of the world I've had infinite time to kill lately so I thought I'd FINALLY look and find out what was actually on the HUNDREDS of faceless unmarked cd's I've got lying in boxes at home.

"As fate would have it I have stumbled across an old demo which I thought had been lost forever. I know some of you love this tune so we thought we'd put it 'out there' for you to enjoy/argue over. The song is called: 'Don't Stop...'

"Hope everyone is staying safe and trying to ride out the lockdown with the minimum of fuss. You're welcome by the way."

The band have also shared the video for the single, Chris Lynch had this to say about the making of the video: "Releasing 'Disco Kitchen' during the quarantine is a coincidental match! We knew we couldn’t have a cast, so we had to become all the characters just the two of us. The video is the result of 5 nights of shooting and editing, when cooking in the kitchen became the new nightclub. When you live with someone in isolation night after night, the mundane becomes extravagant if you add some spice to the soup. The dormant fringes of our personalities came to life. At the end of the video the characters feed each other. A symbol for sharing simple joys with our friends and humanity. In time of global chaos, this remain the simplest care we all need to relate to."

Check out the album's tracklist and watch the video for "Disco Kitchen" below.

Gordon Von Zilla Presents Tracklist:
01. Disco Kitchen
02. Hurrah
03. Already won

The Vacant Lots Announce New LP 'Interzone', Stream "Rescue"

NYC  electro post-punk duo The Vacant Lots (aka Jared Artaud and Brian MacFadyen) have announced the release of their third full-length album 'Interzone'.

A genre-blending synthesis of dance and psych, 'Interzone', will be out via Fuzz Club on June 26th, and is made for secluded listeners and all-night partygoers, meant for headphones and the club. Uninhibited by the limitations of two people and continuing their mission of “minimal means maximum effect,” The Vacant Lots’ Jared Artaud and Brian MacFadyen create an industrial amalgam of icy electronics and cold beats with detached vocals and hard hitting guitars..

The album creates order from chaos and delves into escapism, isolation, relationship conflicts, and decay. With nods to William S. Burroughs and Joy Division’s song of the same name, “Interzone is like existing between two zones,” Jared says. “Interzone doesn't mean one thing. It can mean different things to different people depending on their interpretation. Working on this album was a constant struggle reconciling internal conflicts with all that’s going on externally in the world. Interzone, in one word, is duality."

On Interzone, the band produced the 8 songs, 30 minutes record and teamed up with long term collaborators Ivan Liechti who designed the album artwork, and Ted Young who engineered the record. Maurizio Baggio mixed the record and contributed additional production and it was mastered by Gianni Peri.

Check out the album's tracklist and listen to their new single "Rescue" ("Rescue is about finding the signal in the noise and feeling the need to escape"), below.

Intertzone Tracklist:
01. Endless Rain
02. Into The Depths
03. Rescue 03:02
04. Exit
05. Fracture
06. Playoff
07. Station
08. Party's Over

New Entry: YACHT Reveal "Popularity" (Sparks Cover)

LA-based conceptual pop band YACHT have revealed their cover version of the Sparks classic "Popularity".

The band's words: "Week six of quarantine and now we're dreaming about long nights driving aimlessly around Los Angeles with our friends, pinballing from place to place and feeling the sense of aliveness you get just from being in cars, showing up to parties, leaving, heading somewhere else, to the club, always moving & never going anywhere, detached from time until the night turns to morning. "Popularity" is our favorite song from our favorite Sparks album (1983's "In Outer Space")—a perfect ode to being a vapid LA person going everywhere at once, and to the simple satisfaction of being around other people and feeling popular. By the time we get back out into the world we'll have forgotten what our favorite places are called too. This whole album is perfect and nails a balance of reckless energy and deep loneliness that feels very appropriate to our moment."

The Rolling Stones Return With New Single/Video "Living In A Ghost Town"

Veteran rockers The Rolling Stones have returned with their brand new single "Living In A Ghost Town", and its accompanied video.

The song, written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards was recorded in LA and London last year and finished in isolation. Grab it here.

Mick- ‘‘So the Stones were in the studio recording some new material before the lockdown and there was one song we thought would resonate through the times that we’re living in right now. We’ve worked on it in isolation. And here it is – It’s called ‘Living in a Ghost Town’ - I hope you like it”

Keith- “So, let's cut a long story short. We cut this track well over a year ago in L.A. for part of a new album, an ongoing thing, and then shit hit the fan Mick and I decided this one really needed to go to work right now and so here you have it , "Living in a Ghost Town". Stay safe!”

Charlie- “I enjoyed working on this track. I think it captures a mood and I hope people who listen to it will agree.”

Ronnie- “Thanks so much for all your messages these past few weeks, it means so much to us that you enjoy the music. So we have a brand new track for you, we hope you enjoy it. It has a haunting melody, it’s called Living in A Ghost Town.”

New Entry: Medicine Men Premiere New Single "Now...In The Desert"

Glasgow new wave/kraut rock/psych band Medicine Men have premiered their new single "Now...In The Desert".

The song is taken from their upcoming new album 'A Different Port', set to be released on May 15th via Last Night From Glasgow Records. Get your copy here.

The band's words: "This is a track that has been about 5 years in the making. My oldest friend from childhood Alan Henderson Jnr had a studio down at the Hidden Lane. We used to record at a different studio in the same lane and whenever I had finished for the night I always knew he’d still be in. He played me loads of different instrumental stuff he’d been working on but I remember one late night when he first played me a piece simply called “NOW”. I thought it was brilliant and asked him there and then if I could record a vocal for it. For one reason or another we never got round to it and the years (and years) went by and he moved out of the studio and all the way to Spain. Eventually, one day I get an email with a file attached so big it nearly broke my computer, and it was the track I had asked him for all those years ago. I had assumed that it had been lost in transit during his various moves between countries. But luckily it hadn’t. So I took it in to the band, we added some synths, some real drums, some real bass, and of course the vocal, but we retained the original African blues tinged vibe that Hendy had originally. Much of that percussion and instrumentation is exactly the same. Thankfully, Gordon McNeil managed to bring it all together so well for us in the mix."

London-based indie rock/garage trio Dream Wife have aired the video for their new single "Hasta La Vista".

The song is taken from their forthcoming sophomore album 'So When You Gonna...', which will be out on July 3 via Lucky Number, pre-order your copy here.

The band's words: Featuring baby Alice, Bella & Rakel. The video for Hasta la vista was 25 years in the making. Shot by our parents in Cali, Coventry and Cornwall; the video shows us going about our young lives totally unaware of each other and our converging timelines. 

At a moment where, for many of us, time appears to be moving differently; slowing tremendously, slipping out of the structured week it seems apt to turn our eyes to the past, in order to acknowledge it, be thankful for it and move into the future. 

Some people believe the future is ahead and the past is behind and we are charging forward, some believe the future is behind and the past in front as we can only look into the past and others believe that time moves in spirals moving inwards and upwards carrying the lessons learned all around us front back side to side. Saying goodbye to childhood and hello to sisterhood while acknowledging that we were sisters then and still children now. Heh despite Bella's dad being a film maker she had actually never seen any baby footage until he developed this batch of super 8 film for her mums birthday last year...

New Entry: Triptides Drop Two New Songs "Latitudes" & "Cassius"

Los Angeles-based psychedelic/dream rock band Triptides have dropped their new single "Latitudes", and b-side "Cassius".

Both tracks are out now via Greenway Records. Pre-order your copy here.

Triptides frontman Glenn Brigman says: “When SXSW was cancelled, it was just our first instinct to retreat and make the most out of our time together. We went out to Joshua Tree, set up in a house we rented and spent three days with our heads down recording. Every time we looked up, the world was different. For the first time, we were creating music in a time when we had no idea what was becoming of our society and our world. A few days after we got back to L.A., they started announcing the lockdown.”

“both tracks dance around the desire to find new beginnings in the unknown – a theme that will no doubt resonate with listeners during this unique moment in time."

“We all tread the ground between the search for comfort and the challenge to grow, and how you perceive your environment has so much to do with that balance,” Brigman shared. “We’re finding now, and what these songs express, is that even if we’ve surrounded ourselves with beauty – even on an idyllic island – that nothing is easy, nothing is final, and we must always seek to find our own path.”

Watch: Astari Nite Reveal "Capulet Loves Montague" Music Video

Miami post punk/dark wave band Astari Nite have revealed the video for their latest single "Capulet Loves Montague".

The song is taken from the upcoming album 'Here Lies', which will be out on May 8th. Pre-order your copy here.

“Capulet Loves Montague tells the tale of heartbreak and woe. How two people can fall in love but ultimately will be their undoing.” says frontman Mychael. “Lyrically, “Capulet Loves Montague” came to life while my 11-year young best friend and I were fooling around with crayons on a rainy evening. Perhaps it was the colors that made it clear, a nursery rhyme was being created. A feeling of innocence came over me when the words “Christmas trees are frozen spiders, Cats are made from snow, terrified by what I think of, petrified in love” were written. I’m obsessed with silliness, which is often mistaken for my sadness, especially when it comes to storytelling.” He adds.

New Entry: Pin Ups Unveil "Turning Japanese" (The Vapors Cover)

London indie punk/glam band Pin Ups have unveiled their cover version of The Vapors classic "Turning Japanese".

From the band's JB: "This is a cover of the absolute banger ’Turning Japanese’ by The Vapors that we recorded in 2018 with our boy Scott Docherty at his private studio near Finsbury Park, North London. We’d finished up recording ‘Do You Hate Yourself Yet?’ and decided to smash this one out whilst the gear was still out and we were still all juiced up. The idea was to catch it as lively as possible so I think we set a maximum of three takes, and Scott put on these flashy lights and danced about to conjure up some weirdness. He's the master. We overdubbed the vocals over a huge bag of cans later that evening and what you get it is a weird, lively version of an already weird, lively song."
