TOP TEN: Favourite new tracks of the week


On this week’s Top 10 of favourite new tracks there are returning acts after a few years off the studio and completely new artists I’ve never heard of. Among the new artists I discovered are NYC-based band The Mystery Lights whose psychedelic rock number “Follow Me Home” sounds like it was taking straight from the seventies; the psychedelic R&B-esque track “Acid Test” by Toronto artist River Tiber; seventeen-year old Declan McKenna with the blues-rock song “Bethlehem”; and the Local Natives a synth-pop band from Los Angeles. There are also new tracks from British folk-rock singer/songwriter Jake Bugg, indie pop band Two Door Cinema Club, post-punk British band Spring King, Americana group The Avett Brothers and British Columbia band Hot Hot Heat.
