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.

Ava Luna

One listen to “Clips” from the Brooklyn band’s new “Services EP” and we were smitten. A smart, engaging tune which jumps from doo-wop to funk to gospel to electro-indie to rock without falling over and leaves you wanting more.

James Delay

London-based producer whose “Howl” single for the Russell Club label is a smashing rub of sly, enigmatic, swirling electronica. Check his Soundcloud page for Lady Gaga and Kelis remixes and an hour-long DJ mix.

Amidships

New-ish Belfast folk-rock outfit featuring an experienced cast who were previously involved with such acts as Red Sirius and Push Borders. Tunes so far like “Sine Waves” and “Repeats” point to a band happy to balance zesty atmospherics and epic rock swings. Download tunes here.
