Here are the latest New Music selections from the On The Record column in tomorrow edition of The Ticket. Please feel free to share tips below or check out all past New Music selections here.

Nocturn

Dublin-based producer Craig Babikan has a way with deep, infectious bass-house grooves. “Illinois” and “Ghetto” are probably the best things on his CV to date, but check out his “Beach EP” for First Second while you’re at it.

Eliza & The Bear

London-based five piece playing epic, swell indie tunes with loads of infectious hooks onboard. Fans of the Freelance Whales and Arcade Fire will find much to like on “Upon the North” and “The Southern Wild”

Crooked Hands

From Tyneside, Crooked Hands are fronted by Christopher Brown and are already producing fully rounded indie-folk tunes with nods to Bon Iver and Grizzly Bear like “Under” which will probably sound right at home on your radio.
