Kapital KO feat Crown and Katie McKenna - Shut it Down

I've been following KO on twitter for a while, he's done some decent tracks that show Manchester isn't just home to indie bands. This new track though has been a while coming, but it is well worth the wait. Great verses and the kind of chorus that Dappy would sell his hat for.

If this is the quality of Manchester Urban music to come then London should be shitting itself about... now.

The Vaccines - Post Break Up Sex

Unusually for a much hyped major label band, The Vaccines appear to be making credible indie music with a catchy heart to it. Their first big single is getting lots of radio play and it is deserved; a great track which captures a lot of emotion without being dull or cloying.

Only slight problem is the tune being very reminiscent of 'I can't live, if living without you'... so now I keep switching songs!

Dub War - Strike It

Skindred are one of the best live bands in the world, and makers of some awesome Reggae-metal. If you dono't know what that is just go listen...

But prior to that they were in Dub War, having been meaning to listen to their stuff for ages I finally put this on... what a track. It's very mid to late 1990's, but hell this would still bring down a rock night in a pile of steam.

Nero - Me and You

I love the arcade video, clearly produced by someone with a love of old games. The punk guys are pure Streets of Rage, the lined racetrack a staple of the 80's. I love this track too. I believe it is out this week, go buy it.
