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.

Metronomy share new single 'Hang Me Out To Dry' featuring Robyn

Following the recent release of new album Summer 08 album, Metronomy (Joe Mount) has delivered a brand new single, which features pop icon Robyn. 'Hang Me Out To Dry' is their hypnotic collaboration, which features the Swedish legend on a pulsating hook. "I love Robyn. Having worked with her on various things for the past 3 years I can confirm that she is one of the most forward thinking and vital artists in the world. The music history books will show that she is an icon of our time, I am just happy to have (by association) shoe-horned myself into those history books," Joe said.


The Moonlandingz announce forthcoming EP

Sheffield psych-pop band, The Moodnlandingz have released their new EP, Black Hanz. It marks the first release for the band following their signing to Transgressive Records. The single, a taster for their debut album - due in 2017 - was produced by The E.R.C with Sean Lennon. "Our ode to the odious little England hegemony we have suddenly found ourselves sinking into, 'Black Hanz' represents the soundings off of one Johnny Rocket, dutiful masochist and world ranking narcissist. You can't beat small mindedness into a man that revels in the fact that he is a shell of his future self, you cannot un-polish a turd," frontman Johnny Rocket said.


Betsy unloads new single and accompanying video for 'Wanted More'

Warner/Columbia artist Betsy has delivered her brand new single 'Wanted More' with characteristically colourful visuals to accompany it. "Wanted More," Betsy writes "is about a model I dated. Beautiful but devious. His distant behaviour all made sense later when I discovered the swine was married." She's also announced a forthcoming headlining show in London at The Courtyard Theatre on November 15.
