First up, from the 619, Wavves with “Heavy Metal Detox”
I love how Wavves asked if you’d want to hear new music today…

— WAVVES (@wavves) August 12, 2015
And of course everyone replied with a resounding…
— wes, pretty secure. (@weskoop) August 12, 2015
And here it is. The end reminds me of someone spinning the big wheel on Wheel Of Fortune. And then I thought I meant Price Is Right, but that thing beeps. I mean, before it used to beep. Did it always beep? Maybe I meant Wheel Of Fortune after all. Check out Wavves’ new song “Heavy Metal Detox”..
Introducing next.. from Glasgow, with the second track to come from their new album, Every Open Eye, out 25 September – CHVRCHES with “Never Ending Circles”

J Motor “Jungle Daze”
Boho Meets Hip Hop
J Motor’s ‘Jungle Daze’ places humans and elephants in the same context through subtle storytelling and a hypnotic sonic landscape.
By the way – is it just me, or does that J Motor track remind you of another song?
Another smash hit. Let’s hope J Motor can reach the same heights!
