On The Radar 31/01/12

Once again, we select for your delectation a few upcoming tunes earning a place on the iPods and portable gramophones of the Gigseen staff. Music from One Eyed Wayne, A Stealing Sheep remix by Cineplexx, Django Django and The Big Pink.

One Eyed Wayne - 1-2-3-4 (selected by Grim) - One Eyed Wayne are from Hornsey North London and feature "Cajun, melodica, mandolin, harmonica and acoustic guitars providing a foot tapping soundtrack to dark tales of serial killers, pyromaniacs, losers, boozers and small time bruisers". 1-2-3-4 is a free download from Strummerville's SoundCloud page.

Django Django - Default (selected by Kate) - First saw this psychedelic art-pop quartet when they supported Metronomy at The Royal Albert Hall back in October and put on an incredibly energetic performance. Since then they have gone from strength to strength and their eponymous debut album was released into the world yesterday (Mon 30th Jan). Their first single taken from the album is titled Default, which is a catchy concoction of electronic brilliance, accompanied by a heavy, pulsing blues guitar riff and robotic vocals. This may well be the band's breakthrough!

Stealing Sheep - Noah's Day (Cineplexx Remix) (selected by Grim) - Liverpool based all girl trio Stealing Sheep have had their track Noah s Day from last year's The Mountain Dogs EP, smartly remixed by London's Cineplexx, aka Sebastian Litmanovich. Another free download - Check Stealing Sheep's Bandcamp page for more remixes and EPs.

The Big Pink - Stay Gold (selected by Matt) - I first discovered the Big Pink when Dominos was used in an ad for Xbox. Of course I didn't go and buy an Xbox, I went and downloaded the song instead, and loved every second of it. Stay Gold is their latest single and sounds a lot like Dominos, so I like it.
