NME RADAR TOUR EP
As part of the magazine’s long-time commitment to diversification and sponsoring tours, they’re sending Hurts, Everything Everything and Darwin Deez out on the road to celebrate being some of the best new acts on the scene at the minute. Drubbing up some excitement for it, the ‘Radar’ section of the website is giving away a track by each of the artists as a mini-ep for you to download. It features Hurts – Better than love (Jamaica remix), Everything Everything – Schooling (Vision of Trees remix) and Darwin Deez – Constellations. Whether you’re going or not, it’s worth a download

BEKO DSL – KIM KI O
If Beko were to start their own blog, it would probably be the most important read on the entire internet for anyone wanting the best in new music. Thankfully, they do a lot more than that in releasing a new digital single every monday for free. Kim Ki O were yesterday’s selection. A turkish duo (from what I can gather), they’re up to the usual brilliant standards of the label, which currently has 43 near flawless releases for download on it’s website. One day we’ll look back at this as some kind of golden age.

CHAPEL CLUB – FIVE TREES (HORRORS REMIX)
Paul Epworth is one of British music’s true gems, and any band getting to work with him is obviously hitting the right notes. Chapel Club have been into the studio with him to record some of their material, the first snippet of which will be released on May 31st. Entitled ‘Five Trees’, The Horrors have been let loose upon it already, and the NME are giving away the end product. More on Chapel Club coming up soon.
BEACH FOSSILS – YOUTH
Ridiculously laid back, Beach Fossils make even the surf-rock that seems to have inspired them seem too hectic. They’re a thoroughly modern throwback, but whilst The Drums might have their sights set upon the poppied side of the spectrum, ‘Youth’ is proof, if any was needed, that this is a band on another side of sound completely.
