New Music : Morsy / Chris Joss / Black Lips / Hot Gossip / Howling Bells

Here's some new tunes for you. What do you reckon?

Bursting out of New York is Morsy, founder of the DJ collective Nana Chill, and all round explosive producer and DJ. His latest track "On Fire" is a beast of a dance tune, with a heavy bassline and beat that would pretty much set off most clubs when dropped. Check it out! Myspace

One of the most exciting slices of new music i've discovered this year is from Chris Joss. The Frenchman is a self taught multi-instrumentalist and studio producer, and this year see's the release of his fifth album "Sticks" through ESL Music. This track has a funky bassline and lots of different instruments going on, it's a musical orchard for your ears! Myspace

This week see's the release of the new Black Lips record "200 Million Thousand", with the first single being "Short Fuse". The track is pretty much as you'd expect, with that old school rock drumming, raucous vocals, and dirty guitar licks. The band are supporting the album with a full length US tour. Myspace

Italian Rock and Roll? Not something you hear too often, but is soon might be if enough people check out Milan's Hot Gossip. This three piece are full of healthy guitar riffs, and on this particular track really build up a wicked combination of drums and guitars. New album "You Look Faster When You Are Young" is out now.

Next week see's the release of album number two from Howling Bells. Titled "Radio Wars" its being put out by the excellent Independiente Records. First single "Into The Chaos" demonstrates the ability of the band to create music which sounds chaotic but yet perfectly planned. I'm also really impressed with the powerful yet soft vocals from Juanita Stein. Myspace
