Hello and welcome to the latest and greatest in the indie music world.

I need to start with nothing other than the biggest musical news in quite a while: the third studio album from possibly my favourite band of all time, Foals. Entitled Holy Fire, I have already been through it about 4 or 5 times in the 3 days since I’ve had it. While not quite exactly what I was expecting, judgement shall be reserved until I fully get to know the album and all its brilliant subtleties that Foals are known for delivering. In its infancy, I have taken my personal two standout tracks for this episode.

The new release by seminal Aussie group, Van She, is also represented well in this episode. It is a very solid follow up to their critically acclaimed debut, V, of around 5 years ago.

More favourites are included from up and comers Crooked Colours, whose vocalist and synth style I really dig. Also Sir Sly, whose two songs I’ve heard I’m very impressed with. Another ditty from The Breakdown‘s number 1 song of 2012 winner, Wildcat! Wildcat!, is also in here.

To round off this episode another couple of tunes from Breakdown favourites, IntotheNorthSea and Poor Spirits are thrown in for good measure.

Enjoy the beats people :)
