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.

Anteros share new single 'Ring Ring' to accompany new EP

Indie newcomers, Anteros have delivered their new track 'Ring Ring' off the band's second EP, Breakfast. "We can't imagine a life without music now, but it is such an up-and-down path to go down. It constantly feels like you’re sat in a waiting room: you’re waiting to be given a chance, trust or responsibility," they said of the inspiration behind the new song.

The Wave Pictures deliver chill track 'Pool Hall'

The Wave Pictures are set to deliver their new album Bamboo Diner in the Rain via Moshi Moshi on November 11. Today, they've delivered new single 'Pool hall,' which is seeped in nostalgia. "They really have closed down the pool hall in East London, where we used to play all night long, fuelled by Fosters and the cheese toasties they made behind the bar. Your past gets closed down bit by bit. What Pool Halls and cheese toasties does my future hold?" Guitarist, vocalist and songwriter Dave Tattersall said. "Of course, we live in a bankrupt culture, one that celebrates bongo pop morons and largely ignores the real thing. So we can’t really be surprised anymore when our pool halls get shut down. Everyone is staying home, interfacing with their machines."

BØRNS shares official video for 'American Money'

Michigan songwriter Garrett Borns (aka Grand Haven) is BØRNS. Today, he's unleashed a gorgeous video for 'American money,' taken from his debut album Dopamine, which was released in October and is still just as powerful a year later. The moon-lit video was directed by New York-based photographer Olivia Bee who, like BØRNS, is on the rise.
