Listen: Tacocat – ‘I Hate The Weekend’

Ask many people if they hate the weekend and the answer will probably be “no.” There’s probably a few cops and disgruntled paramedics out there who look at Saturday night and are suddenly filled with dread but for most people it’s a blast of sunshine to help close off that dull week at work.

Listen: Dream Wife – ‘Hey Heartbreaker’

So a couple of weeks ago we missed the boat a little. It was Valentine’s Day, it was a Sunday, and yeah, we kind of missed that really awesome cover that Dream Wife did of Peaches’ ‘Fuck The Pain Away.’ Sorry about that (though it is amazing, so you should still check it out). To…

News… Sauna Youth Reveal The Video For ‘The Bridge’

With slightly shambolic boy-girl vocals, rip-roaring riffs and rolling drums, Sauna Youth aren’t as relaxed as their name suggests.
