Marika Hackman – Animal Fear from the forthcoming debut album We Slept At Last

Latest and greatest (so far) taster track from Marika’s forthcoming debut full length We Slept At Last which is released via Dirty Hit on the 15th of February, the physical editions of album will be released with an art booklet (24-page vinyl / 28-page CD) containing a series of poetic and powerful images by Californian-born photographer Glen Erler, that are inspired by and resonate with the same dark narrative as We Slept At Last. Celebrating the album release, Marika will be exhibiting the full collection of photos in Camden’s Cob Gallery on 18th February and performing the record in full with her band.

Vinyl Love – The Manhattan Love Suicides ” More Heat! More Panic! “

Leeds indie outfit The Manhattan Love Suicides resurfaced in 2013 and then played a few comeback shows last year – now the return is complete with the forthcoming release of the bands second second LP, More Heat! More Panic! and the promise of some new dates later this year.

The bands debut self titled album was vinyl only on its release in the UK and the band are keeping that traditional with a vinyl release on Oddbox and Squirrel but the vinyl pre-orders are rapidly dwindling so don’t delay, expect plenty of guitar driven melodic lo-fi fuzzy noise-pop, above and below are a pair of tracks from the album and you can check out the bands pedigree with the Spotify playlist further down.
