Young Fathers are undoubtedly the Scottish answer to TV on the Radio and, perhaps, South Africa's BLK JKS. (With one Nigerian-Scottish member and one Liberian member, this makes perfect sense.) Hasn't been anything this refreshing around since, well, TV on the Radio.



Melkbelly's new seven-inch is awfully grungy and the stuff of house shows. They're outta Chicago! More here.
