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.

Temptress offer fluorescent visuals for new single 'Guilty Pleasures'

South London duo, Temptress are an R&B wonder, glittered with electronica influences and their sonic pallets combine on brand new single 'Guilty Pleasures.' Today, the pair have unveiled neon-lit visuals to accompany the song. "Guilty Pleasure is about being addicted to a secret; it's about a casual fling that is suddenly serious; feelings of regret turn to euphoria; a desperate need to unload your obsession onto someone without knowing why," they said.


Henrietta delivers gorgeous love song with 'May You Rest'

Henrietta is back with another stunning R&B number, this time with personal R&B number 'May Your Rest,' which was written quite specifically. "This is a very personal song for me and I guess kind of cheesy because it's about me declaring my feelings towards someone very special to me. It doesn't have a conventional pop structure, with a hooky chorus or set verses. The structure feels more like a storytelling journey rather than a pop song. It's a very honest song for me as it is how I was genuinely feeling at the time and this song was used to voice my emotions to this person," she said.


The Wytches share video for 'Ghost House'

Halloween may be over but The Wytches won't be changing any time soon. The band has recently released their new video for 'Ghost House,' from their latest album All Your Happy Life, which includes footage shot by Mark Breed and Tom Ladlow on tour. Next Friday, they'll be playing at London's Electric Ballroom.

Swedish creative and multi-instrumentalist, Alexander Sjödin will be releasing his new album as Sailor & I on February 24. The project is titled The Invention of Lonliness and he's given a taste of what to expect on the forthcoming project with the release of glacial-pop single 'Black Swan.' Listen below.
