MAZES have unveiled a new video ahead of their show at Birthdays this evening. Notes Between E & F is taken from mini-album Better Ghost and the video filmed at a Blackface Ram sale in Stirling, Scotland; one of Britain’s oldest livestock auctions.
Order Better Ghosts via FatCat here.
School-age pop here from San Diego based band TEENAGE BURRITOS. It hits all kinds of trigger points; jangly guitars, sugary vocals and lyrics full of the kind of romantic guff your parents would laugh at you for but it remains short enough to be inescapably sweet.
Burger Records will release a tribute cassette to Velvet Underground’s White Light / White Heat in the wake of principle song-writer Lou Reed’s death earlier this year. The covers album, as you can see from the sleeve above, features material from some top notch Burger alumni, including this synth infused re-imagining of Sister Ray from GAP DREAM.
See below for the MR. ELEVATOR AND THE BRAIN HOTEL’S take on I Heard Her Call My Name.
Sussex spawned three-piece TRAAMS have announced plans to tour with Drenge next year. The band’s debut album Grin is a mesh of post-punk and pop and one of the standouts of the year.
New single Fibbist / Swimming Pool comes out Monday 9th December via FatCat. Watch a lives session recording of the former above and order your copy here.
PARADISE have created this far out and hazy video mix especially for the Lanzarote x Sailor Jerry Xmas party taking place at Corsica Studios tomorrow evening.

Belly Kids have delivered a smackdown this Christmas by putting together the perfect gift for virtually anyone born with a set of eyes and a funny bone.
Hell Yeah is the most electrifying colouring book in sports entertainment. A collection of drawings of famous faces in wrestling, layed out for you to add your own creative edge to. Think Macho Man Randy Savage, DX, Hacksaw Jim Duggan, Mankind, The Rock, Chyna (Yes Chyna!) and many others.

LA LUZ have released the video for Big Big Blood, a track taken from their Hardly Art debut LP It’ Alive. It’s a series of horror film trailers involving a phantom masked figure, haunted dolls and an axe wielding executioner. Watch above.

Philadelphia group NEEDLE POINTS are shaped entirely in the aesthetic of classic psych and rock and roll. From the weirdo outfits to the long hair and fuzz smothered guitar licks.
Following a recent support slot alongside Temples in the States, the band have released their debut album Bom Tugangu. It’s difficult to pick a winner, in terms of standout tracks, but Biting At The Rose is certainly a dive bar hip shaker. Listen to that below and stream the rest here.
Swampy, pysch noise duo LORELLE MEETS THE OBSOLETE have shared a track from their new album Chambers to mark its release on Sonic Cathedral / Captcha Records.
Music For Dozens comes out of the gate faster than their other slow building guitar mashing odysseys and chomps through some serious riffs towards the end. Stream below.
