This smooth groove to help glide and guide you nicely into the weekend is courtesy of Beaty Heart. The South London trio will be releasing their new single ‘Flora’ later this month, and you can read Steven’s thoughts on its nature being “simple despite its complexities.” I find it a rather appropriate video heading into the Valentine’s Day weekend too, as it should, er, get you in the mood. I guess. If you’re into that sort of thing. I have to be honest, I’m not sure what the dog is doing in here. Maybe it’s best if I just don’t think about it…
For past coverage on Beaty Heart on TGTF, go here.
Irish singer/songwriter Glen Hansard was in Los Angeles last week for an appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden. Corden, himself an expat from the UK, has a history of featuring musical guests from across the Atlantic on his show, and his reach has now apparently extended to Ireland as well.
In the video featured below, Hansard gives a polished performance of his charming track ‘Winning Streak’. The song appears on Hansard’s latest LP ‘Didn’t He Ramble’, released last autumn on Anti- Records. TGTF’s collection of previous coverage on Glen Hansard, including a review of that album, can be found by clicking here.

I know, I know. It’s not the usual MP3 of the Day timeslot. But I didn’t want to leave you to yourself this weekend without an early Valentine’s Day present from us! Well, from Honne, really. Today, the London duo is giving away their track ‘Woman’ for the occasion. You can listen to the track in full below. If you like it, you can grab the track for your own for free from Honne’s Web site here in exchange for your email address. Easy peasy!
As we mentioned yesterday in this (SXSW 2016 flavoured!) Bands to Watch feature to properly introduce him, Dorset singer/songwriter Roo Panes will play three live shows in England next month, just ahead of the release of his new LP ‘Paperweights’. The album is due out on the 4th of March via independent label CRC Music, and the official audio stream for its title track can be found just below the tour date listing.
Tickets for the following shows are available now. TGTF’s collected coverage of Roo Panes can be found here.
Tuesday 1st March 2016 – Manchester Band on the Wall
Wednesday 2nd March 2016 – Bristol Colston Hall
Thursday 3rd March 2016 – London Cadogan Hall
Leading into the release of their debut LP ‘Alas Salvation’, YAK have just unveiled the video for their latest single ‘Victorious (National Anthem)’. This dizzyingly kaleidoscopic visual representation is matched only by the sonic psychedelia of the song itself, which compresses its frenetic, fuzzed-out intensity into a concise, 2-minute clip.
Discussing YAK’s upcoming album, frontman Oli Burslem explains: “I was trying to make it a slightly schizophrenic record that had all these different elements, but had so much of everything that by the end . . . everybody would be like, ‘What the hell was that?’”. Whether or not the full album lives up to that description remains to be seen, but ‘Victorious (National Anthem)’ could easily be the shot in the arm that gets things started.
YAK’s first full album ‘Alas Salvation’ is due out on the 13th of May on Octopus Electrical/Kobalt. The band will appear at SXSW 2016 ahead of May headline dates in the UK. Our past collection of YAK coverage can be found right back here.

Oxfordshire singer/songwriter Lewis Watson wowed me live 2 years ago with tracks from his album ‘The Morning’. This month, he’s previewed upcoming material with a taster, ‘Maybe We’re Home’. While most of the tracks on ‘The Morning’ LP favoured a more folky, simpler feel, this new single is fuller and richer, suggesting Watson’s songwriting is maturing at a good clip. That said, there is still plenty of emotion in the shades of Watson’s voice, which I consider one of his greatest gifts to us. Watch Lewis Watson and his band perform ‘Maybe We’re Home’ below. Let’s hope we hear much more from him soon!
