So-and-so is releasing a new five-track EP in a few months, your problematic fave dropped a pretty risque new video and that washed up band that no one has even thought of for a good decade now, has decided to reunite and head out on a world tour. These are the things I need to post at a fervent pace, to not only keep up with the over-saturated blogosphere, but to harness the steady stream of emails that will inevitably continue their high-pressured pursuit into my inbox all hours of the day for the remainder of the week, (and probably on the weekend too, depending on the publicist.)

So to combat the rat-race, we're offering a content compromise in the form of our new daily column, Live From The Gutter - an afternoon recap of the day's press releases and the contents of my 405 email.

LAOISE shares brand new pop gem 'YOU'

Ahead of the release of her debut EP, Irish artist LAOISE is pleased to share her first single, 'You.' "The idea was to write a song restricted to only three chords to see how far I could take it and I ended up loving its vocal melody and its lyrical content. Its progression and structure changed a lot during its production with Seán (Behan), and it became the most suitable as an introduction to my new music and what it contains. It’s also really fun to dance to (especially while wearing pink)," she says.


Haula should be on your radar

Today is all about stunning vocalists apparently, because today we came across Haula. She's a talented Ugandan singer and producer who's delivered her final release of the year, which comes in the rich, haunting 'Good To You,' which was written for a bad boy. Listen below.


Dessert share video for 'Eyes Wide Shut'

LA trio, Dessert are gearing up to release their debut EP, which they're planning to release with a limited edition bunny candle, which was made in collaboration with artist Kelsey Isaacs. And perhaps more importantly, for fans of the music, they've also delivered brand new visuals for their lead single 'Eyes Wide Shut.'
