Named after the tag line of a World War Two propaganda poster, Loose Talk Costs Lives hail from Leeds via London. Well they were formed at Leeds University and after forming to play shows they decided to start taking it all a bit more seriously. This week they found themselves in the top 5 of the NME's Breakthough. Another new platform for unsigned bands to get their music to the masses.
It won't take much to see what band they have been most likened to. Their music could be described as angular guitar pop which has drawn many a comparison to Foals. But they most certainly have more strings to their bow than just being understudies to that band from Oxford. Even as I sit hear listening to rough demo's on their myspace I find my self struggling to stop chair skanking. Expect big things in the coming months and remember LOOSE LIPS SINK SHIPS.

You know when I said that Barbara Streisand by Duck Sauce was going to be the tune of this not so sunny summer. Well I could have been wrong OR we could have a number of great tunes. This being one of them. It's called After Dark and it's from The Count and Sinden and features William and Kai from the Mystery Jets.
Checks those threads, florals are a strong look.

But there's something I really like about Tame Impala Hailing all the way from Perth, Australia. Their debut album Innerspeaker should have been released a couple of weeks ago. But after an Itunes gaff, it was released a couple of weeks back. So you could say I'm pretty late on this one. Nonetheless the album has a great psychedelic floaty vibe, mixed with a bit of grunge/garage rock, which the more mature ear will definitely dig, that's you Dad. But it's also one for the younger audience who like their 70's stuff.

As well as having a great name, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs makes great tunes, you might have heard 'Garden' but he has some other great dance tunes. Signed to Greco-Roman, the home of Drums of Death, he's just put out his 2nd EP, so keep your eyes peeled for this boy. A great tune for late evening garden and cider vibes.
