Why not try this bizarre, slightly sleazy stompalong from King Tuff's new album "The Other" to start your day? I do like that the saxophone is returning from its long and deserved popular music exile. It's done its time.

"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.
