New Music, brought to you weekly by Deadly Music!, will generally avoid most mainstream music - unless it's particularly deadly - to give new, emerging and fringe artists a chance. Most tracks are available on a Soundcloud playlist, some of them on a Spotify playlist....both of which are embedded at the end of this post.

Enjoy!

Cash+David: ‘Bones’

Cash + David is London-based duo Tim Ross (Cash) and Liz Lawrence (David).

Tim and Liz have described their music as like “singing ‘Like A Virgin’ in a desert karaoke booth, with Sleigh Bells on percussion and M83 on guitars”.

Fast carving out a niche for themselves with their dark, downtempo electro pop, the duo are also gaining attention for their striking visuals as much as their gorgeous sad pop music.

Watch the beautiful performance-based video for their latest track ‘Bones.’

Never Mind the Baubles - Small Bear’s 2014 Christmas Album

Never-Mind-The-Baubles-Small-Bears-2014-Christmas-AlbumIt’s Christmas time, there’s no need to be afraid.

Recording one off alternative Christmas songs has become a major thing in recent years and now a lot of independent record companies are getting in on the act with yearly compilations.

Possible best-in-show this year is Isle of Man label Small Bear’s ‘Never Mind the Baubles’ 2014 Christmas Album.

Have a listen to album standout track 'Happy Christmas (Alan McGee Is An Arse)' by The Bordellos, a thing of real beauty that channels Aled Jones with Half Man Half Biscuit and a touch of The Jesus and Mary Chain.

S club 7

An actor on English soap opera Eastenders was reportedly cut from a quiz segment on the BBC telethon ‘Children In Need’ following a gay joke, according to Yahoo!

Shane RitchieShane Ritchie is alleged to have said “Hurry up! Last person in is gay” while he and members of reformed 90s pop band S Club 7 were trying to fit into an elevator together.

S Club 7 band member Jon Lee came out in 2010.

Following the remark, three members of the band are thought to have refused to appear alongside Ritchie.

A source close to the actor confirmed that Ritchie made the joke but did not mean it in an offensive manner.

Back in January, a kiss between two gay characters on Eastenders led to an outburst of homophobic comments on social media. In April, the soap's resident beefcake Ben Hardy appeared on the cover of Attitude.

Robyn Asks 'Who Do You Love' in New Video from Kindness: WATCH

Kindness

Kindness, the solo project of British singer Adam Bainbridge released a new video today for "Who Do You Love?", a new track from his new album Otherness, featuring Swedish pop phenom Robyn.

Bainbridge explains the video:

Who Do You Love is a song about people and connection, and how you can identify who you are by those you love. Those people say a hell of a lot about you. Robyn and I were very happy to make this video with a long term collaborator of mine, Daniel Brereton, whose idea was a series of portraits of our closest friends and family - in a way, the most revealing portraits of us possible. None of these folks were 'cast' - we were just lucky to have them around us on the day and in the right cities!

It's possible that we'll always be more emotionally susceptible to these images - these are our closest friends and loved ones after all - but there's something about seeing all these people together, all these people that would do this for us - it makes the song make a little more sense, and a little more powerful for us. I hope you'll feel some of what we feel when we look at these faces. Thanks to all of those friends, family and collaborators that made it possible.

Watch it, AFTER THE JUMP...
