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 tips below or check out all past New Music selections here.


Bristol youth producing new-school West Country beats with some distinctly familiar shapes and fresh twists. You can hear vintage Bristol cream lingering in the bass on tracks like “Belong”, but there’s also plenty of new, intriguing and promising angles to his productions too.

Oscar Key Sung

The debut album from the Melbourne singer with the evocative voice and crafty r’n’b tunes will land in 2014 and you can expect a lot of fuss to ensue then. For now, feast your ears on Oscar Vicente Slorach-Thorn’s songs like “All I Could Do” or check out his handiwork on the Ghostpoet/MeLo-X Meloghost collaboration.

Ailie Blunnie

Carrick-on-Shannon-born singer, songwriter, pianist and former would-be gymnastics champ busts a move with a likable, neat line in quirky pop and folk tunes. Her debut EP “On love.. and other murder mysteries” has several reasons to be gleeful, particularly “Coming To Get Ya” and “Charlie’s Lullaby”.
