VEYU - Running
VEYU are a 5-pieces band from Liverpool consisting of Chris Beesley (Vocals, Guitar), Adam Bresnen (Vocals, Guitar), James Tidd (Bass), Tom McCabe (Drums) and Donovan Collins (Synth/Keys). "Running" was developed at their Fallout Factory creative space and self produced in sessions at Parr Street Studios. The song will form part of their debut release to be out later this spring.
Dark Patrick - Kuolema
Open track from Dark Patrick's last album "Kuolema" released on February 3th, 2014. Dark Patrick is the duo formed by Ukrainian singer-songwriter Eva Purpurovska, aka Zhenia, and English multi-instrumentalist Paul Chilton. Their music has two clear components, one based on traditional string and wind instruments and another component based on electronic sounds on synths. The combination of these two worlds, combined with the voice of Zhenia, turns surely dark and eclectic on this new album, which requires a slow listening to get immerse on it and get all the flavours of this delightful piece.
The Zoo City Lads - Throw It Away
Debut single by Sydney alternative rock band The Zoo City Lads included in their self-titled debut EP. The Zoo City Lads, a 4 pieces band formed in 2011, have a strong component of punk in their music, what brings something much more interesting than what you see in a common alternative rock band. The bands says to be building a solid fan base through their live shows but they just got one on me just by their recorded work. Hopefully I can taste that sound in person attending one of their shows one day.

Andrew St. James - A Prayer For East Oakland
A Prayer For East Oakland is the last release by singer-songwriter Andrew St. James. The song is included in his album "Doldrums", produced by St. James himself and Jim Greer (platinum
record recipient for his work with Foster The People).
"The lyrics to A Prayer For East Oakland are formed around Psalms in the New Testament. The song was originally a poem I wrote after a childhood friend of mine was murdered during the summer of 2011 outside of his home in East Oakland. Watching the homicide rate in the city rise almost exponentially during that time made me frustrated with how little people around me knew or cared about the violence in a community so close to our home".
Guards - Nightmare (Live at Mack Sennett Studios)
Guards surprised us this week with a live video performed at Mack Sennett Studios in Los Angeles. The song "Nightmare" was one of the songs selected to unveil Guards's debut album In Guards We Trust, released on February 5th, 2013 via Black Bell Records. A nice anniversary celebration for their first album.

Muñeco - Triscaidecafobia
First single by Barcelona band Muñeco, taken from their forthcoming album "Ocurre", to be released later this year via El Genio Equivocado. Triscaidecafobia is like a double track combining a cup of psychedelic and another cup of rave, a song where the imagination of the band describes a creepy and mysterious party where a master of ceremonies open the ritual with the magic word "Triscaidecafobia"
Muñeco seams to evolve into a different perspective for their debuting album, opening the progressive kraut rock of their previous EP to dancing and psychedelic sounds, following an improvised line and adding different layers of ideas while the music develops. Ocurre is going to be one of those delicious albums for advanced ears.
Video edited by Muñeco as a tribute for the "Voyage To The Planet of Prehistoric Women" by Peter Bogdanovich, 1968 (public domain).
