An angry British jazz deployment which had me transfixed from the intro and then the vocal kicked in somewhere around the three minute mark and now I'm basically hooked and it's been on repeat since. Help.
Sold out show to launch their new album "Your Queen Is A Reptile" at Total Refreshment Centre this Thursday, although if you're especially optimistic there is a wait list. Find them on Twitter at @SonsOfKemet, Facebook at sonsofkemet.

"Unearth" - CRATER
Late to the party again. Beautiful synth swells, soaring vocals from Seattle-based electronic duo. Worth your time.
"Oom Sha La La" - Hayley Heynderickx
Morning. It's a nice sunny day in London. So go outside. Like this song says...."If you don't go outside, well, nothing's gonna happen..."
"Rituals" - Rolo Tomassi
Morning. (Ok, not morning anymore.) We need something to lighten the national mood, don't you think? Also, this is arguably my favourite new rawks since SOAD's "Toxicity" came out.
"Don't You Know I'm In A Band" - Confidence Man
My personal favourite from the Melburnian (Melburnite?) synth-dance-punk-pop-whatever's debut album which is released this very day. (linkage after the jump)
"(I'm Tired Of) Western Shouting" - MIEN
Ah, lovely, dirgy, noisy MIEN goodness from MIEN's debut album MIEN.
"Places To Go" - Shinobi Ninja
Not new new music (but new to me - tipped in by a bot marshalled singer @EdaraBabyG), and this somewhat low-key vid barely scratches the surface of what these Brooklyn types actually do... the album "Bless Up" has hip hop bits, rock bits, acoustical bits, synth pop bits, dub reggae bits... sort of reminds me of "Times Up" era Living Colour in that regard.
"Curse Of The Contemporary" - LUMP
Laura Marling and Tuung's Mike Lindsay are doing the supergroup project thing. Happily, this is wonderful in sort of glitched PJ Harvey way and the accompanying video is pleasingly fluffy.
