Because it doesn't get darker
Unless you expected to
It's just getting harder to contain the truth
You know it doesn't get darker
Unless you expect it to
It's just getting harder to contain the truth

New Music is brought to you by Deadly Music! which covers mostly independent indie, alternative, electro pop, post rock and ambient music, with a bit of everything else deadly thrown in for good measure.

Most songs reviewed here are available on a Soundcloud playlist, some of them on a Spotify playlist....both of which are embedded at the end of this post.

Fight Like Apes

Fight-Like-ApesDublin-based electro pop punk act Fight Like Apes have announced the release of their eponymous 3rd album.

Due out on May 18th, it would appear that Fight Like Apes have finally embraced the nascent epic pop hooks that they may have backed away from to an extent in the past.

Known for their occasionally snarling take on pop punk, the songs on their latest release retain the rough around the edges approach but add in an element of pure pop that could well – and should by all rights – do the unheard of and find a brand new audience at a late stage in their career while keeping existing fans happy.

The transformation isn’t quite as extreme as that of DIY act We’ve Got A Fuzzbox and We’re Gonna Use It!! into Fuzzbox but with songs like “Numbnuts,” “Pretty Keen on Centerfolds” and the verging on glam rock “Carousel,” this is an explosive return for a band that could have gone awry many moons ago.

Tracey Thorn - The Falling

20120926-traceythorn-624x420-1348678021After a fairly quiet couple of years following 2012’s sublime Christmas album Tinsel and Lights – apart from writing award winning books obviously – Tracey Thorn (one half of Everything But The Girl) is making her inimitable presence known once more.

Following on from a rather lovely cover of Kate Bush‘s “Under the Ivy” back in December, Thorn is back with The Falling, a 16-minute soundtrack to accompany British filmmaker Carol Morley’s first full-length feature, which stars Maisie Williams (above).

Thorn explains:

“I’d seen [Morley's] two previous documentary films, The Alcohol Years and Dreams of a Life, and I tweeted about how much I liked them. She saw that and came to a book signing I was doing for Bedsit Disco Queen.”

After Thorn appeared in one of Morley’s dreams, the director reached out immediately. “When I said that I’d never done a film soundtrack before and didn’t really know how to do it, she said, ‘Perfect.'”

Thorn’s goal was to provide music that could have been made by the schoolgirl characters, a creative process unexpectedly brought her back to some of her own early recordings:

“It sounds more like music I made with the Marine Girls or on my first solo album, A Distant Shore. I think that’s because I was deliberately trying to inhabit the mindset of these teenage girls. So it took me back into myself, in a way that I found really enjoyable.”

The OXD Mirror: Beth Ditto & Alan Braxe Give Cerrone's 'Supernature' a Fresh Update and More New Tracks

OXD-Mirror430

BY OCCUPY THE DISCO / RU BHATT 

French producer Marc Cerrone needs no introduction and neither does the The Gossip's Beth Ditto. When the latter produced a wild cover of Cerrone's hit track, 'Supernature' alongside The Shoes late last year, music fans applauded the unexpected version.

Fellow French disco maestro Alan Braxe enlists Ditto again to reproduce a version of 'Supernature' that's much closer to the 1978 original, albeit updated for modern times. With Giorgio Moroder and Chic acknowledging '70s disco is back into vogue, it's about time fellow disco powerhouse Cerrone got his due. Braxe's version of 'Supernature' is out on his new compilation, The Best of Cerrone Productions, which released earlier week.
