Wow we’ve come across some pretty awesome new music today. High-five! Yeaah! Sorry, got carried away. These guys, calling themselves ILLS, might be something to do with Oxford Mississipi’s Young Buffalo and Slow Talk. Love it either way.

Violetness - The Coal

It’s hard to find anything out about this lady except she goes by Violetness. Just listen for now.

Tommy Toussaint - Only Want You

Drift into your weekend with some help from Tommy Toussaint.

Phantom Vibration - Growing EP

This EP is the second of a three part series from Minnesota’s Phantom Vibration. It’s the sun laden tropicalia of ‘Summer Blood’ that caught our ears. Check out more from these guys over at their bandcamp.

Youth Lagoon - July (Pitchfork Session)

This was recorded recently for Pitchfork’s ‘Tunnelvision’ series. ‘July’ is taken from Youth Lagoon's (twenty two year old Trevor Powers) debut album 'The Year Of Hibernation' out now on Lefse Records. Stunning.

Swn 2010 - Breton & A Lot More

Huw and John!

We’re off home to the ‘Diff for Huw Stephens and John Rostron’s Swn Festival 2011. Can hardly wait. Breton are high up the wishlist but there’s a whole lot more to keep a music fiend entertained. Monument Valley, Y Niwl, Yaaks, Other Lives, etc, etc.

Electric Guest - Troubleman

Something for the weekend from L.A. duo Electric Guest.

Acid Glasses - Jpeg Hoarder

Acid Glasses is the new musical guise of Nick Burk from Memphis, Tennessee. You may recognise his name from the garage band Kruxe. I didn’t. Acid Glasses might just have the most fitting name possible for his music. Check out the video to his latest tune ‘Jpeg Hoarder’ above and stream/free download his excellent last single ‘My Pale Garden’ below. Acid Glasses plays the Binnacle Festival at Old Blue last on Sunday, marking his UK debut and then Rough Trade West 17/10 and Catch 18/10. 

Acid Glasses - My Pale Garden by Two Tap Digital

Adventure is Benny Boeldt from North Carolina and when he’s not writing his own music he’s also part of the Dan Deacon collective. ‘Rio’ is from his recent ‘Lesser Known’ album, Dan’s second release for Carpark Records and his first with voice and lyrics.
