THE GIG
Tops, Night Beds support Wild Nothing - The Lexington, London

If you’ve been reading our recent Bulletins you’ll be well aware that Canada upstarts Tops are touring over here, sporting their meticulously crafted alternative pop. But alongside those guys, Night Beds also support Jack Tatum and co. tonight. Night Beds being the project of Winston Yellen, all primed to release a remarkable debut album - ‘Country Sleep’ - next year. It’ll accompany Wild Nothing with ease.

THE SONG
Xander The Great - Somewhere Tonight



This is an interesting new project - the work of London’s Xander Taha and Ed Sanders - that looks to be making one quick appearance before the year departs. ‘Somewhere Tonight’ will certainly embed itself in the memory: As an early work it has a remarkably assured feel, picking up on the bedroom R&B style of The Weeknd; unashamed in its combination of hard-rock guitar licks and slick pop production.

OTHER NEU BUSINESS
The Townhouses - Diaspora LP

The Townhouses is the solo project of Melbourne’s Leigh Hannah. New LP ‘Diaspora’ is a rare gem in that it’s a frighteningly complete album, but it’s being given away for free via. Yes Please Records. Seriously: Before you begin to think that 2012’s starved you of musical goodness, you’ve probably not been delving beneath the zeitgeist. ‘Diaspora’ is one of many fruitful low-key releases that have sprung up over these past twelve months; its balancing of ambience and dreamy electronica takes some beating.
