A look at some of the new music we have been listening to this week:
Starting with 'Das Kapitans' who hail from Norfolk and Cambridgeshire with a fuzzy noise of 2021 Garage Rock. As Stephen Potter and Simon Bailey from the band explained, "The lockdown of 2020 hit hard and whereas band life as we knew it came to a stuttering halt we found a surge of creativeness flowing through our veins and 'Das Kapitans' was born."
Black Country, New Road return with their new single "Track X". The track is the latest to be taken from their much-anticipated debut album "For The First Time", which is out on 5th February via Ninja Tune.
A Winged Victory for the Sullen, the composer collaboration between Stars of the Lid founder Adam Wiltzie and L.A. composer Dustin O'Halloran, are set to release new album ‘Invisible Cities’ on the 26th February 2021. This is the score for the theatre production directed by Leo Warner and produced by the Manchester International Festival, Rambert, 59 Productions and Karl Sydow.
Juanita Stein has released the video for her new single, 'Reckoning', taken from her new album, 'Snapshot' (out now via Nude Records). The video, which follows Juanita as she cycles through the night time streets of Southern France, was self-filmed in the summer and provides the perfect accompaniment to the song which, with the rest of the album, was written and recorded in the months following her father’s passing.
'Tough To Let Go' is included on the new album from Drive-By Truckers, 'The New OK' is out now via ATO Records. The band have released a lyric video for the song.
