Track Of The Day - @exhexband - Ex Hex - ‘Beast’

Ex Hex is Mary Timony of Helium and Wild Flag’s new musical project alongside Fire Tapes bassist Betsy Wright, and The Aquarium drummer Laura Harris.  The band who take their name from Mary’s 2005 solo album play a fizzing mix of melodic blues tinged rock n’ roll fused with a defiant punked up riot grrrl snarl.  It’s the third tune Ex Hexhave released online to date, following hot on the heels of…

rack Of The Day - Black Honey - @BLACKHONEYUK - ‘Teenager’

A few weeks back we introduced Black Honey with the swoon-some ‘Sleep Forever.’ There was no background story no band photo save the intriguing cover art and the fact that the band are based in Brighton.

But we do know who they are in fact we’ve featured them in the past……. Anyway they’re back with another outstanding slice of blissful cinematic pop noir in the form of ‘Teenager.’  Seductive…

Music Blog Collective - God Is In The TV

Music Blog Collective - 5 of the best from @godisinthetv God Is In The TV

Before we started the VPME we saw bloggers as a threat to the old world order and regarded them as a singularly odd breed… spending hours on end in their mothers basements hunched over their laptops, surrounded by stacks of vinyl and faded musical memorabilia like a ghastly hipster army of Miss Havershams. Their ancient Darth Maul T-shirts smeared in grease and ketchup, the remnants of last…

After the hugely impressive ‘Live On Hunger’ ‘Saturn Returns’ is the second track to emerge from Dark Horses forthcoming album ‘Hail Lucid State.‘  We won’t wax too lyrical here as we intend to review the whole album but suffice to say if you love this track as much as we do, you’re gonna fucking love their second long player.

Track Of The Day - Curxes - ‘Valkyrie’

Track Of The Day - @CURXES - ‘Valkyrie’

The Valkyries (Valkyrja -‘Chooser of the Slain’) from Old Norse mythology were female handmaidens of Odin who decided the fate of those who would live or die in battle.  They would then gather the souls of the bravest warriors who they deigned deserving of palace in the afterlife.  Not unlike Cheryl Cole on the X factor then?

This Norse legend most famously inspired Wagner’s opera ‘Die Walküre’,…
