It was about a year ago when we profiled Tape the Radio from Deptford, London, as a Bands to Watch. They are about to tour next month as support for the Duke Spirit, but more importantly, they are set to release their debut album in April. As a taster, they’re offering the track below, ‘Heartache & Fear’, as a free download. Dark, rough around the edges…I like this one.

New York City’s Holy Ghost! is gearing up to release their self-titled debut album in April on DFA Records. I really enjoyed the taster EP they released last year, ‘Static on the Wire’ (review here), so I’m very excited for this whole album guaranteed to be chock full of mad dance beats.
To get things rolling (or maybe I should say jumping?), they’re offering up a free download of one of the new tracks, ‘Do It Again’. Listen to it below. If you like what you hear, head on over to their official Web site to grab the track for your collection.

Delta Maid will be releasing her first single, ‘Of My Own’, on 18 April 18th (17 April on iTunes). her debut album, ’Outside Looking In’, will follow in May (to be released on Geffen / Future Records). As I’m pretty excited about these upcoming released, I am well pleased to be able to offer the stream below of Delta’s song ‘The Changes Made’, a short but gorgeously sweet little tune that showcases her beautiful voice. Raw, pure talent. (If you’re like to download the song, head on over to her Facebook page.)

Check out this track, ‘Disconnected’, by Jazz Morley. Until today, this track was only available purchased at her live shows as part of ‘The Creaky Grand Sessions’ EP. (You can buy this EP on her tour in the upcoming weeks.)
It distills everything I like about her: raw emotion sung in Morley’s beautiful voice, accompanied by similarly emotive piano chords. Incidentally, Morley wrote the song for her brother, who was then serving in Afghanistan. We’re happy to report he’s returned safe and sound.
