State’s New Music Mixtape #11

All the world’s a stage, as Rush (and some English writer bloke) once said and our weekly new music round up is proof. Our artists come from all over the globe, including right here at home. Enjoy…

Atmosphere – ‘Kanye West’

Alternative hip-hoppers show an eye for timing. Helps that it’s a complete belter of a tune too.

Nuoli – ‘My Curse Is My Mind’

Swedish artist takes on the injustices of the world. Racism, sexism, homophobia and gender generalisation – what have you got?

halves – ‘Ink & Ice’

The Scandinavian theme continues with this Boa Howl outtake, record in Stockholm in 2012.

Penguins Kill Polar Bears – ‘Lungs’

Mogwai fans will find much to admire in this album track from their fellow Scots.

Weatherbox – ‘Bring Us The Head Of Weatherbox’

Clever, engaging indie rock from San Diego.

Arkells – ‘Never Thought This Would Happen’

Inspired by a festival in rural Ontario, this summery tune is getting us in the mood for what’s to come.

Camille Corazón – ‘XXVII’

New Yorker pays a downbeat tribute to the 27 club.

Printer Clips – ‘Apparatchik’

The first taste of Paul Noonan’s duets album, featuring Lisa Hannigan, is predictably lovely.

Sia – ‘Chandelier’

From Zero 7 to David Guetta, Sia has always kept moving. Here’s what comes next.

Cut Ribbons – ‘In The Rain’

Pop swagger meets ferocious intent in Wales.

The Faint – ‘Dress Code’

Pure synth-pop mania from Omaha.

Quickly Quietly – ‘Daily Echo’

Multi-faceted NY trio debut new track.

American Football – ‘The 7’s’

Live track trails re-issue of the Chicago three piece’s 1999 self-titled album.

Yann Tiersen – ‘A Midsummer Evening’

French musician heads to Iceland.

Dream Lake – ‘In The Lights’

Dreamy Swedish duo get dreamy.
