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.

Nude Beach

Punchy, anthemic, buzzy, bluecollar power-pop from the Brooklyn noise-makers currently touring with The Men. Check out new album “II” if you’re looking for great sparkling, jangling bar-room tunes like “Radio” to soundtrack your day. Hear the album at their Bandcamp page.

Wildcat! Wildcat!

Further proof of the current health of the Los Angeles scene when it comes to new-school lush pop (see also The Neighbourhood, NO, Haim and KO KO), Wildcat! Wildcat! specialise in sunnysideup grooves for a summer’s day. Check out “Mr Quiche” or “End of the World Everyday” and add them to your seasonal mixtape.

Factions

Dublin act with a hankering for widescreen moody rock with electro and ambient swirls in the wash, Factions release their debut EP “Looms” this month. Tunes like “Saturn” and “All the Way From Strange” are likable snapshots from the five-piece band.
