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.


Young east London musician already making evocative, emotional, melancholic tunes with really boss hooks. “Magpie” and “You Say” are the ones currently causing people to sit up and pay attention and make comparisons to The National and Alt-J.

Them Swoops

Melbourne fuzz-pop duo Dave McGann and Chris Goff are already off to a winning start with wig-out tunes like “Too Fast for Love” to shout about. They’ve already got a rake of support slots under their belt and have just finished work on their debut EP “Glimmers”.

The Altered Hours

Hypnotic, driving psych-rock from the Cork band whose new “Sweet Jelly Roll” EP will be released on A Records in April. The five piece’s earlier release “Downstream” is also worth checking out, especially if you’re a fan of late Sixties’ acid trips.
