Ghost Outfit – ‘Killuhs’

GHOST OUTFIT - 'KILLUHS'

‘I Want You To Destroy Me’, the new album from Ghost Outfit is available for pre-order (out June 24 via Sways Records). The lead track ‘Killuhs’ is a clash of angular guitars, post punk vocals, relentless drums and plenty of noise! The British duo first made waves a few years back after posting a new tune each week on their Tumblr page.

The Louche – ‘Salt’

The Louche FC have officially dropped the ‘FC’ and a new tune called ‘Salt’. The Salford-based four piece released their debut single ‘Back Bedroom Casualty’ in early 2011. Their latest creation sounds like Fleetwood Mac meets noise rock – impressive!

Money – 'Who's Going To Love You Now'

Brilliant lo-fi anthem from Money, taken from the upcoming 7inch ‘Who’s Going To Love You Now / Goodnight London’  available through Sways Records on February 20 in the UK (March 19 for the rest of us). Money is a mysterious musical bunch, there’s definitely some perversion lurking behind their musical haze! The NSFW record cover is a just a hint at this (which I’ve cropped to save the desk workers)!  Sways Records lovingly describes Money as being “led by a Rilke-talking weirdo with an electric guitar”. And yes, I can imagine just that…

The Louche FC – 'Romantic'

This is the best sounding Football Club I’ve heard all year! If only all sport sounded this good. Alas, The Louche FC are a Manchester band that project waves of textured noise with bittersweet melodies and fuzzy guitar tones. The Louche FC manage to combine wistful indie pop with abrasive noise rock that edges towards shoegaze. The result is somewhere in between, but the delivery of their songwriting wins out.

‘Romantic’ brings to mind The Smiths, not in sound but the way the vocals are phrased (same home town, so it makes sense)! Salford based indie label Sways Records are releasing The Louche FC’s new 7-inch ‘Romantic’ on November 28 featuring the B-side ‘Rain and Thunder, Love Take Me Under’. There’s even limited edition blue vinyl – preorder here!

The Louche FC’s debut single ‘Back Bedroom Casualty’ was released back in February and is available for free download here. The b-side is a scratchy 60s surf pop number called ‘Only In A Dream’, its arguably more accessible than ‘Back Bedroom Casualty’ and perhaps could’ve served them better as a lead single. But who cares, they’re both good tunes. I imagine Sways Records will package these singles into an EP before long. I hope they do.
