Weekly Round Up: Friday 26th February

Friday 26th February, 2016 3:21PM

This week was pretty quiet on the tour news front, but there was some great releases coming out of the woodwork to make up for it. Seminal 90s shoegaze outfit Lush unveiled their first new song in two decades and it's a beauty. Auckland noise-rock outfit Lost Rockets let loose fantastic new single 'Paper Cuts' which will be featured on a limited cassette run for sale at their upcoming shows. Local trip-hop group Doprah dropped their long-awaited debut album Wasting and it's available for streaming. Kim Gordon let loose the first-ever single from her new band Glitterbust. We were delighted to present a surprise new album from ex-pats The Renderers on the site for streaming in full. Speaking of ex-pats the now Berlin-based CHEATS unveiled an epic collection of songs recorded in his bedroom over the last five years. Leeds lot Eagulls shared a new song from their upcoming sophomore record and it sees the post-punk group take a change of direction. And trip hop legends Massive Attack shared another amazing video, wherein Gone Girl's Rosamind Pike gives an amazing performance to the song 'Voodoo In My Blood'.


This week's Caught Live is from the fan footage files, it's Iggy Pop performing at Carnegie Hall with Patti Smith's backing band - paying tribute to David Bowie with a cover of The Jean Genie #takingcareofbusiness
