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

Family of the Year

Lush, infectious forthcoming single “St Croix” is going to get a lot of folks excited about the Los Angeles-based band with roots in Wales, Florida and Orange County. Much of the prep-work has been done via releases like “Songbook” and tours supporting Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes, The Antlers and others.

Colossal Gospel

Debut album “Circles” is what’s causing a bit of a stir about Alabama duo Stephen Weibert and Chris Johnson. For fans of strong songwriting, traditional Southern folk, gospel frills and dusty, melodic, heart and soul magnificence.

Eagulls

Leeds-based bolshy lads who already possess a highly commendable ability for making a bit of a racket with a strong hummability edge to the proceedings. New tune, the brilliantly squalling “Possessed”, is the perfect soundtrack for a late-night stomp through your local badlands.
