Here are the latest New Music selections from the On The Record column in tomorrow’s edition of The Ticket. Please feel free to share New Music tips below

Cold Specks

Consider us smitten with the Toronto-born, London-based Al Spx after her appearance on Later… With Jools Holland last week. Debut single “Holland” is a wonderful slam-dunk of folky noir-soul, but “Old Stepstone” is the real showcase for her spectacular voice. Her forthcoming Rob Ellis-produced debut album promises to be quite a treat.

Kab Driver

Headturning wobbly, superfried electronica from Belfast producer David Baxter, formerly known as Filaria and one-half of Kinnego Flux. Baxter has a debut album ready to drop on the Airflex Labs label and has previously collaborated with Boxcutter.

Monto

Wicklow’s Ross O’Sullivan is already a class act in the production stakes with a winning ability to flip between thumping, turbo-charged grooves like “Boy Racer” or cerebral headnodders like his Fitz & The Tantrums and Nas remixes. He’s now hooked up with Belfast’s Melted Music, home to SertOne.
