Smash Into Pieces – “Deadman”

Explosive Swedish electro hard rockers Smash Into Pieces have a dedicated international following which has seen them amass an amazing 50 million streams, following their rise on hit competitive TV show Sweden’s Got Talent.

Now, they drop stomping anthem “Deadman” – the lead single from their upcoming seventh album which is scheduled  for release later in the year and promoted with just a handful of unmissable U.K. shows on sale with Gigantic.

Animal Collective – Time Skiffs

Experimental electronica outfit Animal Collective are back with brand new record Time Skiffs – first album in six years! Their return brings with it nine songs which sees a whole new level of maturity from the Maryland indie (former) kids who now explore the worries that come with aging and starting families.

But this is far from an angst album, as each song gently unfolds a unique universe of majestic sounds and gorgeous harmonies from a band still clearly in love with the creative process. Recorded way back in 2020 with the aid of Italian producer Marta Salogni, the band are eager to get back on the road and head to Albert Hall in Manchester for a glorious gig in Autumn.

I feel like the way we communicate with each other has gotten kind of streamlined, because you just sort of figure out with each other the most efficient and effective ways of communicating something to each other. I feel like that’s changed quite a bit. Whereas we used to kind of be taking shots in the dark, I feel like we’ve all kind of zoned in on what really works for us as far as how to manage more challenging times, I guess.” – Noah Lennox (Panda Bear)
