UNDER THE RADAR: Hatchie debuts “Sure,” a shoegaze-y pop earworm.

Hatchie is the alias of Harriette Pilbeam, a songwriter from Brisbane, Australia. She’s debuting “Sure,” a super melodic and shoegaze-y preview of her forthcoming Sugar & Spice EP.

The track blends the exquisitely layered textures of early-’90s 4AD bands with wistful lyrics and a string of micro-hooks.

UNDER THE RADAR: Pinegrove – “Intrepid” (Live at The Current).

When they visited our studio in mid-October, Pinegrove teased some new music. “We have an album that’s going to come out. We’re finished with it, but with the time that it takes to make vinyl, we’re a few months out yet.”

They recorded a version of their new single “Intrepid”; which was released on Nov. 2. Watch them perform it live in our studio.

BLISTERING NICK CAVE & THE BIRTHDAY PARTY SETS IN ‘PLEASURE HEADS MUST BURN’ 1982/1983

BLISTERING NICK CAVE & THE BIRTHDAY PARTY SETS IN ‘PLEASURE HEADS MUST BURN’ 1982/1983.

The Birthday Party played the legendary Haçienda Club in Manchester once in 1982 and once in 1983, and, per Haçienda policy, both shows were videotaped for posterity. The Birthday Party’s two most recent releases at that point were also their two best albums, Prayers on Fire and Junkyard, and based on this footage there’s a strong argument that they were as good as any band in the world at that moment.

The shows were released under the title Pleasure Heads Must Burn on VHS by Ikon in 1983 and then again on DVD by Cherry Red in 2003.

Every inch of this release is abrasive, vital, essential.

UNDER THE RADAR: Twin Peaks – “With You”.

Chicago’s Twin Peaks are releasing their next album as a series of 7-inch singles, where every month they release two new songs on 7″ vinyl and online.
