The prolific Londoners The Death Of Pop, who we featured here last year have just released a new single, 'Circles'. In addition to that feature, one of their litany of singles released during that year, 'Tell Me My Name' took out spot 52 in our 2013 Top 100. Containing elements of psychedelia with an electronic tinge, the atmospheric and measured, 'Circles' can be downloaded for free below. You can check out it's brand new video there too. An extended player is set for release soon while a debut album is in the pipeline for next year. Very much looking forward to all that.

San Franscisco based dream pop outfit Craft Spells lead the three new entries this week with the first single, the extremely easy on the ear, hook laden 'Breaking The Angle Against The Tide' off their forthcoming second record, Nausea. It enters at 19. We featured the new album from English duo Elephant earlier in the week and the latest single from that, 'Elusive Youth' is at 22. Busy Australian expatriate Tom Crandles is back in his Colours guise with a great new single, the rather Tame Impalaesque, especially percussion wise, 'You Can't See Me'. It debuts at 24.
There were big moves this week for three of last week's new entries. The superb electronic pop track, 'Hold On' from Swedish outfit Wilderness smashes the chart with a move from its debut position of 14 last week all the way up to 2. 'Animal Of One' and 'Pickup Lines', from The Fresh & Onlys and SoftSpot respectively both enter the top 10. ALX remains at 1 with 'Beautiful Criminal.
The Craft Spells track is available as a free download below. You'll also find a stream to the Colours track and the new video for our number six track, 'Carmine' by Cloud Boat.

Three years in the making, English duo Elephant are set to release their debut album, Sky Swimming. Unsurprisingly centred around the complexity of relationships, given that Amelia Rivas and Christian Pinchbeck were in one and broke up during the recording, Sky Swimming is at times a dreamy affair based around laconic soul and lounge stylings with a retrospective feel but at others their electronic pop sensibilities truly kick in. If your not familiar with Elephant, we've assembled a collection of tracks appearing on the record that they've released during the past year, including a free download of latest single, 'Elusive Youth' below. Sky Swimming is out next week via Memphis Industries. Grab it on vinyl here.

San Franciscans The Fresh & Onlys return with a brand new album in June, House Of Spirits, and the second track to appear from it is the haunting western sounding 'Animal Of One. That's in at 21.

I popped into Melbourne last weekend for some general drinking and other tomfoolery with friends and caught nascent Melbourne experimental post punk outfit Esc at their regular haunt, the Evelyn Hotel in Fitzroy. The creative five piece, sporting dual drummers, put on quite a esoteric and eclectic set despite some technical difficulties, unsurprising when you consider the voluminous electronic gear that accompanies their live show. Alternating angst ridden and sonically deadpan vocals, angular bass and interludes of guitar experimentation in between doses of melodic pop were the order of the night with half the set new tracks. With that said, Esc are currently in the process of raising funds for an album to follow up their self-titled EP from last year. Get around them. Meanwhile, for the unfamiliar, we've included two of our favourites from the EP, the eminently grooveable 'Atomic Shadow' and the celestially dark 'Deathbed' below.
North Carolina trio SoftSpot, since transplanted to Brooklyn, released their second album, MASS, last week and have recently shared two new videos, one of which 'Black Room Blues' directed by band member Sarah Kinlaw, we have for you below. The other, for 'Pickup Lines' will appear in the Top 30 tomorrow. The slow burn album, in which each track is a variation on a theme, contains elements that range from introspective post rock to intricately constructed glistening pop and reflects the strange dichotomies of modern life. It almost forces you to stop and contemplate in a world that almost won't let you. MASS is certainly brain food for the thinking music lover.
You can also stream the first single, You/Yours' from the record as well below. The self released album can be purchased on vinyl here.
