Animal Kingdom - Get Away With It


London trio Animal Kingdom have just released their second album 'The Looking Away' digitally with a physical release to follow in July. Taken from it is 'Get Away With It', a quite wonderful and sleek, upbeat indiepop track that's as much for the dance floor as your iPod. Their sound has seen them making headway in the US where they're soon to be touring.

Chains Of Love - Mistake Lover


For further celebration that the excellent garage/pop/soul collective Chains Of Love have now made their album 'Strange Grey Days' available on physical release in the UK, here's new single and free download 'Mistake Lover' which shows a more restrained side to the band without sacrificing any of their retro-pop cool and is still laced with those gorgeous Ronnie Spectorish vocals.

Victor Talking Machine - Sarah Laughs


We haven't been able to scrape together a great deal of info on Hackney band Victor Talking Machine. We do know that the quartet have recently released a new single called 'Tuscany' and on the B-side is featured this rather nice piece of slow-burning, shoegazey indiepop called 'Sarah Laughs' which you can stream or download from the link below.
