If you haven’t heard of Splashh then its time you became acquainted with their sun drenched garage pop greatness.
With three out of four members from the Southern Hemisphere, London based Splashh are perhaps not as well known down under as they should be. They have been rapidly on the rise in the UK capital however since founding member’s Sasha Carlson and Toto Vivian, originally from Auckland and Byron Bay respectively, released a bunch of homemade tracks online early this year.

Punk performance art trio Pussy Riot, who’ve been sentenced to three years in jail for an impromptu protest gig in a Moscow Church late last year, have released a new single. The track was dropped by the three women, Maria Alyokhina, Yekaterina Samutsevich, and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, just after they were sentenced to imprisonment for “hooliganism motivated by religious hatred”. The track is called ‘Putin Lights Up the Fires’ and can be viewed above, and thanks to The Guardian... read more
What do The Avalanches, Dr. Dre and Jay Electronica all have in common? Awesome names aside, they all have large fan-bases that have been waiting an unreasonable amount of time for a new album. Jay, born Timothy Thedford, is actually the most curious case of the lot – despite being a noted rapper for the past eight years or so, the man is yet to release his debut album. Still, recent news has indicated that we will finally be seeing the album, entitled Act II: Patents of Nobility (the turn),... read more
Earlier in the year, it was announced that Baltimore lads Animal Collective would be releasing their ninth studio album, Centipede Hz, in September. It marks the first time all four members of the group – Avey Tare, Geologist, Deakin and Panda Bear – have worked on music together since 2007’s Strawberry Jam. To top it all off, they were also recently announced as a part of the 2013 Big Day Out line-up. To say that the hype surrounding the band has picked up again is putting it lightly... read more
It’s already been quite an exciting year for the folk-punk collective known as March of the Real Fly. Along with landing support slots for bands like Alpine, Bleeding Knees Club and Deep Sea Arcade (just this week past, in fact), the band also released their first studio effort in a self-titled EP this past April. Now, the band have focused their attention on the second single from said EP, and over the weekend the band dropped a new video to accompany it.
For “You Should Be Real,”... read more
Two Door Cinema Club are giving away their first new single, ‘Sleep Alone,’ for free download.
The British indie pop group will release second album ‘Beacon’ in early September. ‘Sleep Alone’ is the first taste of the new album, the follow-up to 2010’s ‘Tourist History.’ Kicking off with a thudding drumbeat, ‘Sleep Alone’ shows off a more sombre and synth-based sound than their debut. Still with the twinkling melodic guitars... read more
Passion Pit have released the latest single from new album ‘Gossamer,’ with a trippy fan-created video.
Fans of Passion Pit had a chance to make a video for new track ‘I’ll Be Alright,’ with a competition run through Genero.TV. This is the winning entry. A weird trip set in an art gallery, paintings come to life as a moustached guard takes a few (too many) pills and starts making out with a glittery pyramid on the wall. The walls and clocks then start melting... read more
Hot Chip have released the latest video from their stellar recent album, ‘In Our Heads.’
The video, for new single ‘Look At Where We Are,’ was made in collaboration with The Creator’s Project. With a creepy mad scientist making a Bjork-lookalike android by putting cotton wool and strawberries inside her head, it’s pretty damn weird. At the same time, however, it’s quite a gorgeous video that meshes perfectly with the song’s more sombre, slow... read more
Two rock veterans have resurfaced with new tracks, as Green Day and No Doubt both show off the first singles from their respective albums.

Check the trippy lyric video below. It is Green Day’s first... read more
The Jungle Giants have released a fun new film clip for their latest single, ‘She’s A Riot.’
The Brisbane band are heading out on a Groupie-presented tour early next month to launch the single, and to get you even more psyched, they’ve released the song’s clip. According to the band, the new video was “Filmed in one room using only one shot,” and “plays with space, position and continuity without the aid of any editing or post production.... read more
