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

Lorn

Hailing from the wilds of Illinois and signed to FlyLo’s Brainfeeder label, Lorn describes his music as “digital dirt”. What you’ll hear on debut album “Nothing Else” is a grandstanding display of dark, dreamy, occasionally menacing and always melancholic sounds.

B-Movie Lightning

New project from former Cane141 frontman Mike Smalle shows he hasn’t lost that deft touch when it comes to offkilter pop tunes with shimmering electronic frills and fringes. Debut single “Triple Trouble” out now and there’s an Ian Catt-produced debut album on the way.

Factory Floor

Pulsating, post-punk grooves, metallic underworld disco and thundering noise from London trio and Factory Records’ fans now signed to Blast First. By all accounts, their live show is a thing of great magnificence.
