‘Pleasure Palaces’
This was the first single to be taken from Glaswegian electronica outfit Errors‘ new record Have Some Faith In Magic, which’ll be released next week on Mogwai’s Rock Action label, and is available to stream in its entirety on Drowned in Sound now. It’s got even more of a late-night thing going on than their previous releases and is, needless to say, pretty damned awesome. If that wasn’t enough, it’s also endorsed by The Saturdays.

‘A Warrior Who Longs To Grow Herbs’
With vocal duties taken in hand by Emma, here’s a new side to Islet’s traditionally shape-shifting, instrument-swapping art-psych, and is kind of in the Esben & The Witch vein. Their debut album Illuminated People is out now, and is available to stream on label Turnstile’s site. Spoiler alert: it’s a stunner.

Bo Ningen
‘Yurayura Kaeru’
This krauty Japanese four-piece once got described by the Guardian as being like Faust crossed with Fugazi. Is there any higher praise than that? Nope, there is not. We’ve managed to miss them when they’ve come to Sheffield before, and their live show is meant to be astonishing, so we’re pretty much over the moon that we’ll be able to catch them in the ‘comfort’ of our own venue on 28th Feb.

The Twilight Sad
‘Another Bed’
This is the next track to be released from Scottish indie-miserablists’ new record No One Can Ever Know, and finds them on a bit of an 80s goth tip. The gloomy video that goes with it is pretty spectacular too, see.
