Track of the Day: 'Catatonic Skinbag' by Blaenavon

It's great to have this band back, especially as they've been through some personal issues since we last heard from them. By the sound of this track those issues are far behind them - sounding very much like 90s indie rock its a rocky, jangly guitar blast of effervescent fun, cut through with some darker-edged lyrics.

The guys are going on their own tour in May and supporting Thw Wombats before that - it sounds like they're ready to have a blast, so do your best to catch them out there.

New band of the day: JOHN

Fresh from a European tour slot supporting IDLES, this noisy two-piece look set to start making waves in the UK. Hailing from Crystal Palace, two guys, both called John, have come together to bring you a sounds that's much larger and rounded than you would imagine from 4 arms and 4 legs. Adding some thoughtful lyrics to the their meaty, bouncy rock ensures that this duo should rise above their peers. Apparently they're awesome live too so get yourself along to one of their shows, and in the meantime have a listen to their debut album 'God Speed in the National Limit' below.
