And we’re back. Another Thursday, another “Noteworthy Nods” – our ongoing weekly roundup of fresh-off-the-press releases that jumped out at us as soon as we heard them.
Last week’s nods included brand new releases from Twin Stranger, Red Shakes, The K’s, Stone Mile, Balancing Act, The Kairos, Sorry, The Strands, and Turin Brakes– all of which you can still catch up with over here if you missed that. Today’s featured tracks include a wide variety of superb singles from the likes of The Rain Experiment, Mimosa, Voodoos, FLOWVERS, Apostles, Dictator, ME REX, NOISE, The Vitrines, Big Image, and Rowan (featuring Ariel Posen).
We hope you enjoy this week’s essential playlist as much as we do and, as always, please do drop us a tweet to let us (and more importantly the musicians) know which ones you’ve bookmarked for future repeat play.
Aside from the aforementioned track recommendations, our Noteworthy section includes weekly videocast interviews featuring musical talent we hope are either already or, about to become your new favorite artists. Next up this Monday, May 9th, we’ll be speaking with the frontman of the Liverpool-based band, Bandit following the release of their latest EP, “Here’s To Being Alive.” You can watch/rewatch all 14 episodes released to date via the video playlist below.
As always, don’t be a stranger! Please send any recommendations or track submissions to us over on Twitter and Instagram. We look forward to hearing from you and hope you enjoy the tracks we’ve picked out for you this week.
