New Music is brought to you weekly by Deadly Music!, which covers mostly indie/alternative music as well as electronica, ambient/modern classical, pop and anything really, really good.
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.
Public Service Broadcasting: “Gagarin”
“Gagarin” is the first track taken from Public Service Broadcasting’s upcoming second album The Race For Space.
A brassy, funk-heavy theme track for Yuri Gagarin, the track reveals a new more playful side to the duo.
With a 6-piece brass section and 5-piece string section in tow, “Gagarin” signals a broadening of Public Service Broadcasting’s sound.
Probably one of the grooviest things you’ve seen this year.
tigerthief: “cinnamon luck”
tigerthief (possibly from Portland, Oregon and all in lowercase) is a new act choosing to use media to add an element of mystery to their music.
Despite requests for more information, there is little known about tigerthief.
They are probably a duo and “cinnamon luck” was “written, recorded, shot, edited, mixed, mastered, and produced in 24 hours using a Sony TC-500A tape machine, a Canon 7D, two human brains, two cinnamon sticks, and one snow day.”
A mesmerizing, trippy track, you’ll love this if you go all misty-eyed at the thought of early Cocteau Twins.
Also RIYL if you like contemporary downtempo / shoegaze / gloomy pop acts like Hockeysmith and Casket Girls.

In a new music video released late last week, out singer-songwriter Jesse Sarvinski serves up some beefcake with a side of romance. His song, "Won't Let You Get Away," is all about what happens when you realize your "summertime fling" is someone you could love for the rest of your life. And you don't want to let him get away. Sarvinski sings,
"All my friends say / "Boy you found a good one now, don't let him get away." / And I'd search high and low / Just to find someone who could even come close. / I've never been so in love with somebody / You do something to me that I can't explain and / I know I'd be a fool if I just let you get away /So I won't let you get away."

“Ex-Gay” activist Linda Harvey has a suggestion for a Christmas gift for your favorite teen or college student struggling with their sexuality, reports Right Wing Watch.
Mission America’s Harvey says that Maybe He’s Not Gay? “is for America’s youth and the bright future they can all have, regardless of the turmoil of adolescence, which for some, may include same sex attractions or gender confusion.”
Originally published last year, the book was removed by Amazon because of its abusive content. Harvey and her publishers said that they pulled the book because they didn’t want it be harmed by an “uninformed and vicious campaign stimulated by ‘gay’ blogger[s].” Whereas Harvey’s opinions are informed by reason and science because she is correct in her claim that gay people do not exist.
Speaking on her radio program the other day, Harvey told her listeners that the book would make a perfect Christmas gift:
“If you were wondering what to get your teen or college student for Christmas, how about giving them the gift of common sense and morality? This is the way many people have described my book, Maybe He’s Not Gay: Another View On Homosexuality.
“Same-sex relationships are not what anyone was born for yet there are reasons why people get there and even more reasons why they can leave those feelings behind.”
In September, Harvey warned parents that gay people are preying on young people at LGBT youth centers.
Last month, Harvey joined “culture warrior” Pat Buchanan in a call for Christians to rise up in mass "civil disobedience" against the Supreme Court's decision on same-sex marriage.

James Franco, Zachary Quinto and former Teen Wolf star Charlie Carver will reportedly be steaming up the big screen in the upcoming film Michael, about former gay rights activist turned ex-gay poster boy Michael Glatze. Franco plays Glatze while Quinto plays his then boyfriend Bennett. E! Online reports how the duo bed Carver in the movie:
"They first meet in a club. The music is pumping. It's the eighties!" a source said. "When Charlie's character questions Franco about having a boyfriend, Franco says, 'He'd like you, too.'"
Cut to the bedroom, where the three are naked, intertwined and "kissing," the source said. "You see their asses." [...]
The three enjoy a romance, but when Michael leaves, the breakup is "disastrous and heartbreaking," the source said.
Franco posted a photo of himself and Carver on Facebook in August with the caption "BOOM! Welcome to our Boys Spaceship! Blast off!!!!"
Gus van Sant is executive producing Michael along with Franco. Vince Jolivette, Scott Reed, Ron Singer and Joel Michaely are signed on as producers. It's based on the Benoit Denizet-Lewis NYT article "My Ex-Gay Friend".
Previously, we got to sneak a peek of Franco and Quinto cozying up to one another and rocking their best 90s party boi looks.

Atlanta Fire Chief Kelvin Cochran has been suspended from his position for one month for writing a religious book in which he describes homosexuality as a “sexual perversion,” reports AJC.com.
In the self-published book “Who Told You That You Are Naked?” (yours for only $13.18!), Cochran argues that homosexuality is akin to bestiality and pederasty.
Arguing that “men who carry the curse of condemnation and deprivation cannot fulfill their purpose as husbands, fathers, community and business leaders,” the book includes passages such as the following:
• “Uncleanness — whatever is opposite of purity; including sodomy, homosexuality, lesbianism, pederasty, bestiality, all other forms of sexual perversion.”
• “Naked men refuse to give in, so they pursue sexual fulfillment through multiple partners, with the opposite sex, the same sex and sex outside of marriage and many other vile, vulgar and inappropriate ways which defile their body-temple and dishonor God.”
Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed’s spokesperson Anne Torres said the administration didn’t know about the book until employees came forward with complaints last week. Reed wrote on Facebook that he was “deeply disturbed” by the book book and will “not tolerate discrimination of any kind” in his administration.
Cochran has been ordered to undergo sensitivity training and has been barred from distributing copies of the book on city property.
Additionally, Reed’s office has now opened an investigation to determine whether Cochran has violated city policies or discriminated against employees.

A Chick-Fil-A franchise in Hollywood, California held a fundraiser last weekend with the national gay youth group Campus Pride to help raise funds to combat bullying, reports LOGO TV.
Chick-Fil-A has faced the wrath of LGBT activists in recent years following the revelation that anti-gay CEO Dan Cathay has been funding homophobic groups and activists including the anti-gay listed hate group Family Research Council.
During Saturday’s fundraiser an unspecified percent of sales went to Campus Pride’s campaign to raise money for an anonymous $10,000 matching grant. A table was also set up with pamphlets about Campus Pride and the anti-bullying organization Stand Up Foundation.
Of the event, Campus Pride director Shane Windmeyer said:
“We’re not going to turn away anyone who wants to be an ally and help us fundraise. Activism is dirty work. It’s work that some people don’t always agree on the journey or the past and today we were just trying to be positive, to move forward and to do things that are common ground issues.”
