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.

Hear the debut release from London singer, songwriter Abi Ocia

Talk about an intro. London-based vocalist Abi Ocia has emerged with her debut single 'Running' and it is something special. Over slow-burning production, Abi offers a new smooth blend of electric R&B that is equal parts stunning and soothing.

Röyksopp release disco-inspired video for latest single 'Never Ever'

Spastic sonic duo, Röyksopp have shared the wirey visuals for their new single 'Never Ever' which features vocals from Susanne Sundfør."We have, in the past, tended to go for a bit of a sombre sentiment in our videos, pristine imagery with a hint of darkness," says Svein. "But we wanted to turn that around this time, and make something raw, shabby and messy but predominantly light-hearted. At the core lies a reaction to the current paradigme of selfies & social media, where a flattering facade, overshadowing substance seems to be not only the accepted norm, but something to strive for. There are way too many artists that fuel this notion that one has to be both rich, delinquent, successful & sexy, all at the same time. We thought it refreshing to counter that and hence we´ve gone off on a different tangent for this video. It’s not completely unflattering, but it’s quite unflattering."
