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.

Sad Soul Circus

The work of Cork producer and film student Finn Yowell, Sad Soul Circus already sounds like something to note for the future, thanks to “Waves” which made its way online this week. Fans of beautifully drifting hazy electronica on nodding terms with all the right reference points should dig Yowell’s moody, broody portraits.

California X

Time to get heavy. Kick-ass, raw punky growlings with a brilliantly scrappy guitar sound from the Amherst, Massachusetts band set to release tunes in the not too distant future on boutique label The Sounds of Sweet Nothing. Random OTR fact: Dinosaur Jr frontman J Mascis also hails from Amherst. Maybe he can produce ‘em?

Twin Terrace

Formerly of Dublin punky wannabes Vodkopter, Dubliner Gavin Redmond now specialises in dreamy rock and pop tunes which will remind you a little of what Elliott Smith sounded like back in the day. Redmond says he’s just starting out, but the tunes are hugely promising.
