Here are the latest New Music selections from the On The Record column in tomorrow’s edition of The Ticket. All tips for future New Music picks welcome below

Gross Magic

Summer jam alert: “Sweetest Touch”, taken from Brighton young blade Sam McGarrigle’s forthcoming EP “Teen Jamz”, is a hundred shades of wonderful. A lo-fi, head-bobbing psych-pop gem with definite touches of grandeur. We want to hear more ASAP.

Brous

A Twitter mention by Triple J’s morning show presenter Zan Rowe led us to Melbourne’s Sophie Brous and her awesome new tune “Streamers”. Formerly the director of the city’s jazz festival and a collaborator with Cut Copy, Jens Lekman and others, Brous’ new musical pitch is full of melodic, widescreen drama.

Modern Skins

New Dublin band peddling strong, dynamic, old-school, raw, feel-good rock tunes. Debut album “Push Buttons” is released this week, with a launch show at Dublin’s Grand Social on July 8 for those not Punchestown-bound, and is streaming here
