New music you should be listening to

Ipso Facto are 3 girls leading up the whole "Nu-Grave" or Goth revival in the UK right now. They share a similar vibe to "The Horrors" in that they sound like this amalgamation of mod, goth, and garage rock.

Ipso Facto-Baulderdash

A Place to Bury Strangers bring Sonic Youth and The Jesus and Mary Chain to mind. Another modern Shoegaze act but there's definitely some darker influences here. Not your typical indie band fraf.

The Big Pink have come shining through from one of my favorite labels of all time, 4AD. They've given us acts such as Cocteau Twins, Bauhaus, The Pixies, and have done a good job of remaining quite pertinent throughout the years. The Big Pink goes the way of more current trends in music by incorporating recognizable electronic sounds and what is generally a normal vocal styling these days. Granted these guys tend to be a bit moodier and just far more listenable and original than a lot of big acts throughout the past year. They're definitely showing a lot of promise.

I pretty much thought Cure covers just had to stop a long time ago, but low and behold these guys have given the cover game some saving grace.
