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.

JONES shares Joe Hertz remix of 'Indulge'

London born singer, JONES has shared a Joe Hertz remix of her current single 'Indulge', which adds layers to an already incredible song. The original is taken from JONES' forthcoming debut album New Skin, which is set for release on October 7 on 37 Adventures. Listen below.


Agnes Obel shares official video for new single 'Golden Green'

Agnes Obel has shared the mesmerising animated video for her new single 'Golden Green,' which was directed by former Mew frontwoman and visual artist Jonas Bjerre. "I was honored to take on the task of making a video for this beautiful song," says Bjerre. "The bells that emphasize the rhythm through the song, for some reason they made me think of blinking lights, and glass - glass being a recurring theme in Agnes’s new songs. As she told me more about the song, I started having ideas for some kind of internal world, maybe a world inside someone's head, where various thoughts and feelings are in opposition, depicted as animated versions of Agnes, struggling to find harmony."


Albert af Ekenstam shares new single 'Made Of Gold'

After supporting Dan Michaelson and The Coastguards at a show at St. Pancras Old Church last night, Albert af Ekenstam has shared his new track 'Made Of Gold' - taken from the forthcoming album Ashes, which is out October 14.


Karma Kid and Ten Ven release video for 'Shapes' featuring Demo Taped

Karma Kid aka Sam Knowles has teamed up with London-based producer Ten Ven and Atlanta talent Demo taped for a vibrant new single 'Shapes.' Now, the song as a psychedelic video just as opulent. "This collaboration seems to have travelled halfway around the world to Atlanta with Demo Taped and back to me and my good friend Ten Ven in the space of a year. Me and Ten Ven made the instrumental and lyrics in my little bedroom in London last summer and was transformed by Demo Taped after we sent it off to him. He did an amazing job," Karma Kid said.


WEIRDO brings the attitude on latest song

Enigmatic artist WEIRDO is back with another surging single. 'Attitude' is the follow up to 'Butter' and 'Armanio' which set the internet alight a few months ago, hitting no1 on the Hype Machine, receiving BBC R1 Annie Mac support and racking up streams in the 100,000's.
