Something For The Weekend? Three New Singles

This week’s pack of three features three hot off the press singles that arrived in my inbox this morning. Axolotes Mexicanos – Que Te Pires A nice slice of punk-pop to kick us off. Que Te Pires is the first single to be lifted from the forthcoming album :3 that will be released later this year. Their label (Elefant Records) are not kidding when they … Continue reading Something For The Weekend? Three New Singles

Aiko El Grupo – Amigos Para Nunca (Confía Y Te La Lían)

Aiko El Grupo have raided their recent mini-album Va Totalmente en Serio​.​.​. and lifted their dazzling new single from it. Amigos Para Nunca (Confía Y Te La Lían) is another one of those shouty pop-punk tracks the band seem to deliver so well. And despite the video’s Battle Royale theme you cannot help but smile. The single is available digitally from Elefant Records whilst the … Continue reading Aiko El Grupo – Amigos Para Nunca (Confía Y Te La Lían)

LISASINSON – Canción Para Mi Crush

Not only is Canción Para Mi Crush from Spanish band LISASINSON taken from a new two-track single titled Las Cosas Que No Te Digo it will also appear on the bands forthcoming mini-album Perdona Mamá that will be released next year. It’s a fuzzy indie-pop track which the label compares to the likes of The Shop Assistants, Juniper Moon or Helen Love. It’s backed with … Continue reading LISASINSON – Canción Para Mi Crush

Something For The Weekend – Three with Videos

Subsonic Eye – Unearth Unearth is an extremely catchy song with a gloriously over-indulgent ending from Singapore’s Subsonic Eye. It’s taken from the band’s forthcoming third album Nature of Things which is due for a split release via Fastcut Records and Middle Class Cigars early next year. The album can be pre-ordered in various formats from here. Facebook Cour De Récré – Vice Et Werther … Continue reading Something For The Weekend – Three with Videos

Axolotes Mexicanos – Cara De Idiota

Don’t laugh but if London is locked down once more, as all indicators suggests it will, I am going to try and learn some Spanish given how many bands that sing in that language, whether from Spain or the Americas, I listen to these days. And here is another case in point. After working on various projects (Carolina Durante, Confeti De Odio, Temerario Mario, Stephen … Continue reading Axolotes Mexicanos – Cara De Idiota

Aiko El Grupo – Quiero Conocer (Por Tu Actitud)

The new track from Aiko El Grupo has been taken from their forthcoming debut full-length release Va Totalmente En Serio… which will be released in December 2020 as a 10″ vinyl mini-album. Like their previous effort Truchita (Nunca Volveré​!​!​!​!​) it’s female-fronted fuzzy noise pop with plenty of punk rock attitude. It’s out now digitally via Elefant Records which has been a bit hit and miss … Continue reading Aiko El Grupo – Quiero Conocer (Por Tu Actitud)

Nevver – Nada Me Importa

Elefant Records connected a previous release of Nevvers to Felt’s Primitive Painters. For the blurb surrounding Nada Me Importa (Nothing Matters) the label connects them, when mentioning the track’s melody, to the likes of The Cure and New Order. I cannot hear the former but there is certainly more than a hint of the latter’s guitar sound woven through the song. It’s a strong track … Continue reading Nevver – Nada Me Importa
