*** New Pains of Being Pure At Heart single out now ***
The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart are back with their first new recordings since last year’s superb Belong. With this single they’ve chosen to pay tribute to two of their key influences, covering songs by The Magnetic Fields (“Jeremy”) and East River Pipe (“My Life Is Wrong”). As always The Pains are on fire here — both songs are full of buzzing guitars and bursting with energy. An excellent addition to The Pains’ discography, and one that definitely makes us anxious for their next record. All copies pressed on olive green vinyl, almost sold-out.

*** New Girls Names singles up for pre-order ***
Now expanded to a four piece with a more progressive and expansive sound, Girls Names’ new single “The New Life” clocks in at over 7 minutes and takes you on a journey that mirrors the feelings of a band living and working in economy stricken Northern Ireland - the perfect soundtrack of the bleakness to where they exist. The B-side is a mesmerizing, dubbed-out JD Twitch Optimo remix of the single. Super limited edition on white vinyl. Not many will make it to stores, so pre-order now to avoid disappointment. EXPECTED TO SHIP ON OR BEFORE NOVEMBER 13th.

*** New Allo Darlin’ single out now ***
The superbly jangly “Northern Lights” is the third single to be taken from Allo Darlin’s excellent second album “Europe.” Written about a New Year’s Eve spent in Sweden the song somehow manages to imbue a wintery scene with a sweet breath of sunshine as Elizabeth Morris’ voice rings out clear as a bell and Paul Rain’s guitar melodies shine brightly. It’s backed by “Golden Age,” a B-side which seems to exist simply to prove that Allo Darlin’ have super-catchy melodic pop gems to burn. All copies pressed on orange vinyl.

*** New Evans The Death single out now ***
Evans The Death are back with this ace new single, truly on the the highlights on an album that’s full of them. Insanely catchy and bursting with youthful energy, “Catch Your Cold” is the kind of tune that makes you realize that there is still plenty of joy to be found in good old guitar pop. Look out too for B-side “Crying Song” for which the band persuaded comedian Stewart Lee to sob uncontrollably over their rambunctious musical backing. All copies on white vinyl with a cool silver-embossed sleeve.
