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.


Hoodlem are a Melbourne-based duo behind a couple of striking tunes like “Old Friend” and “IGOTU” (plus a dastardly cover of NSYNC’s “Girlfriend”) which sizzle with invention and intrigue. A dazzling mix of alt-pop, r’n’b and offkilter beats.


Glasgow duo Stina Tweeddale and Shona McVicar have already gathered a wave of attention for their blissful, fierce, scuzzy noise-pop. Expect follow-ups soon to their smashing “Bud” single and a bunch of shows supporting acts from Sleigh Bells to Palma Violets.

Public Access TV

New York City brats rocking out with poppy, edgy, powerful riffs and strong harmonic hooks. The three-piece may have maintained a low-profile to date, but expect that to change after the Great Escape festival this weekend and especially if they keep producing great tunes like “Monaco”
