UNDER THE RADAR: The Wave Pictures – “Slick Black River From The Rain”.
‘Slick Black River From The Rain’ is a poetic, self-effacing piece of ramshackle pop music that seems to revolve around just one special chord…

UNDER THE RADAR: Savages – T.I.W.Y.G.
Savages’ first Adore Life single “The Answer” fiercely posited that “Love is the answer!” Follow-up single “T.I.W.Y.G.” continues that theme, Jehnny Beth angrily insisting “This is what you get when you mess with love” atop a frenetic tumble of punk-rock noise. The song also has a swooning, soulful breakdown before snapping back to breakneck speed for a thrilling finish. This is what you get.
