Alt-J - Every Other Freckle

We've already heard two songs from Alt-J's new album This Is All Yours and now they've shared a third. New track 'Every Other Freckle' sees the former Mercury prize winners once again take on the modern indie rock template and transform it into something totally weird and unique, in a way only Alt-J seem to know how. Indeed despite the loss of founding member, Gwil Salisbury, at the beginning of this year, at this rate Alt-J album number two might just prove to be even more ground breaking than album number one.

SBTRKT - New Dorp, New York (Feat. Ezra Koenig)

Premiered today on BBC Radio 1, SBTRKT aka. Aaron Jerome has revealled the first track from his forthcoming sophomore album, Wonder Where We Land. The track entitled 'New Dorp, New York' was written and recorded alongside Vampire Weekend lead singer Ezra Koenig and sees the mercurial producer pursue a very different sound to anything found on his debut. I feel it's going to take a few listens to get my head round this one, but I'm excited to hear more.

Alt-J - Left Hand Free

Alt-J continue to build on their reputation as a band that refuse to be pigeon-holed with 'Left Hand Free' the second track to be unveiled from their highly anticipated second album. While 'Hunger Of The Pine' was a typically alternative piece of indie-electronic ethereal Alt-J pop, 'Left Hand Free' captures a more traditional classic rock sound, albeit with a new-age twist. Love them or hate them, Alt-J remain one of the most forward thinking bands in the business.

Alt-J - Hunger of The Pine

After what seems like an age away former Mercury prize winners Alt-J return with their first piece of new music since the release of their critically acclaimed debut album An Awesome Wave. The track, entitled 'Hunger Of The Pine', is a slow-building experimental number that blends indie rock with new age electronic sounds in a way that only Alt-J can. More suprising still it samples vocals from Miley Cyrus, the lyric 'I'm a female rebel' lifted from the singer's song '4x4'. Suprises aside, Alt-J are back and sounding better than ever.

New Carnival - Let Me Shake (Official Video)

Bristol based band New Carnival released visuals this week to their latest track 'Let Me Shake'. The unsigned student 3 piece continue to push the boundaries with their electronically infused indie sound and I can honestly say their latest EP is the best to date. You can check out more from the band HERE or just enjoy their jazzy new video after jump. Too good.
