After leaving the amazing Pocahaunted, Bethany Cosentino’s career has been on the up.

Continuing the trend, she’s giving away new track ‘Far Away’, and you should do your utmost to see her if you get the chance, too.

THE DRUMS – FOREVER AND EVER, AMEX (RAFFERTIE REMIX)
The mainstream may not have followed to the extent that was predicted as of yet, but The Drums themselves probably don’t mind. Their debut EP Summertime has been played ad infinium by anyone who’s given it a chance and the album looks set to be the same, with Raffertie being given free rein over this track from the forthcoming longplayer.

THE CONCRETES – GOOD EVENING
It’s been almost three years since their last release, but The Concretes are starting on the comeback trail. The sound might’ve evolved from the purely twee Concretes of old, but it’s still recognisably the same beautiful beast underneath. New album WYWH is due out later in the year, and if this track is anything to go by, it’s going to be a cracker.
