The Right Sound for the Right Price


Beck – “Wow”

NEW BECK NEW BECK NEW BEEECCCCCKKKKK! An artist who needs no introduction… this is the first thing from him since last year’s “Dreams“. Giddy up!

Tokyo Police Club – “PCH”

Back in April, Newmarket’s finest, Tokyo Police Club, dropped the first half of their new two part EP called Melon Collie and the Infinite Radness. They’re off on tour now but you can listen to this new jam in the meantime.

Barns Courtney – “Fire”

If you’ve seen that Bradley Cooper movie where he plays a chef, Burnt, then you might know this next song. Apparently Cooper heard it before the movie came out and thought it was perfect for the film’s soundtrack and now singer songwriter Barns Courtney is well on fire.

The Strokes – “OBLIVIUS”

Last weekend The Strokes headlined Governors Ball in NYC and they had some new tunes to play! Here’s one of the three brand new ones from their recent Future Present Past EP.

Daughter – “No Care”

Bestival is THIS WEEKEND! Yep, summer festival season is in full swing and while a lot of Bestival is electronic music, there’ll be something for everyone at Woodbine Park like English folk band Daughter!
