Beach Baby No Mind No Money [7"] Second single from London four-piece Beach Baby who supported Django Django at New Slang a couple of months back. New wave breezy indie-rock for fans of Teleman, Blur, Happyness and pavement It’s indie guitar pop, without wishing to damn it with faint praise.

Pumarosa Priestess Limited 12" debut single on Chess Club from London's Pumarosa. With production from Mercury-nominated Dan Carey (Kate Tempest, Bat For Lashes, Toy), ‘Priestess’ is a bold and bewitching introduction to Pumarosa. Building in momentum and atmospheric textures across 7 and half minutes, the track is neatly categorized by the band as “industrial spiritual”. Musically, too, ‘Priestess’ assimilates a strange mix of sounds, simultaneously drawn to the brooding, heavier songwriting of PJ Harvey or Patti Smith together with the groove-led and nocturnal electronics of The Knife and Cocteau Twins.

In 'The Grip' EP Cean's work continues to expand on its electronic foundations with awe- inspriring new intricacies and explorative influences. Says Cean of the new EP : "‘I wanted to explore the duality between lyrical context and conceptual production. Taking influences from many facets of electronic music, my main aim was to investigate the effectiveness of songwriting within the electronic plane - whether it be marrying a lyrical concept with similar tonal aspects (inherently present within the production), and more importantly, creating and displaying disparity between them."
