False Heads “TWENTYNOTHING”

If I were to drop all the names that False Heads rightly do in their press release — from being heralded by Iggy Pop (aka the one and living god), and recording Pete Townsend’s (a pretty decent guitar strummer) studio,

RAAVE TAPES “2 U xoxo”

Newcastle’s RAAVE TAPES’ new track “2 U xoxo” is filled with casual nihilistic sarcasm, and a jagged punk funkiness of bands like The Gossip, while retraining the pop chops of Blur. There’s something terribly British about this track that gives
