The Right Sound for the Right Price


New Orleans’ Mutemath has been making music together for more than a decade, racking up 3 studio albums, a whole whack of EP’s and one grammy nomination. They’ve toured with everyone from Incubus to Alanis Morissette, and there’s a new Mutemath album Vitals coming out in the Fall – that should be a fun one!

They’ve come a long way from their folky breakout Little Talks, and Of Monsters and Men are back with another single off their latest album Beneath the Skin, adding a dash of electronic flavour to the mix with “Empire.”

It’s been 10 years since the last studio album from legendary post-punk new wavers New Order, but FINALLY, on September 25th, they’re returning with a new album. It will be called Music Complete, and it’s the first record since the departure of founding bassist Peter Hook who left the band in 2007. But don’t worry, you’ll recognize their iconic sound in this brand new single.

Ready to get folked up!? Nathaniel Rateliff is your man. Along with his band The Night Sweats, Rateliff’s new self-titled album is full of foot stomping, hand clapping, bluesy folk. This song youre about to hear would be perfect for storming into your local saloon after a long hard day, so here you go!

Scottish band Chvrches will be releasing their highly anticipated album Every Open Eye on September 25th. You’ve already been treated to the first single, “Leave A Trace,” but here’s another treat for ya.
