Super World Indie Tune Of The Day – Yuzima brings love in a cold climate

Yuzima – Forever. Super World Indie Tune Of The Day. 11.12.2018 “Forever” is the soulful new tune from SWIT favourite Yuzima. The song is a heartfelt ballad, replete with strummed guitars and second line brass sounds. It’s got that trademark Yuzima dissonance too, adding a slightly eerie feeling to the tune. Forever is a love…

Who can resist Yuzima?

Yuzima – Black Supremecy SWIT favourite and NYC’s Prince Of Noize is back with a new long player called “Power” which I finally got a first listen to today. I’m going to have to get in touch with the man himself and pick his brain on the album, it’s certainly time we spoke with him…

SWIT Premiere: Atlas Engine – Shadow Dancer

Hello. The whole country is flooded or frozen, or both. Jesus Christ I mean what did we do to deserve this? Yes, when I sit here trembling in this frozen sinkhole with only a cigarette for warmth it’s hard to believe that summer was anything more than a distant dream. Then I press play on…

Struth! It’s Lake Ruth, ain’t that the truth?

Lake Ruth – One Of Your Own Lake Ruth first came to our attention via their super remix of Le SuperHomard’s “Dry Salt In Our Hair”. This is “One Of Your Own”, their wonderful new single. The song nods in the direction of many new wave progenitors, putting me in mind of The Associates, early…

Super World Interview Time: Lynette Williams

The first song I heard by Harlem’s Lynette Williams is “Light” and it blew me away, sparse, beautifully constructed, a deeply-felt indie/folk ballad and her voice, good God man, it still stops me in my tracks every time. Since then I’ve listened to everything I can find by her, she’s just pure class. She even…

Tenant From Zero is my new hero

Tenant From Zero – The Nape of Your Neck “Serendipity always rewards the prepared” and we are today the beneficiaries of another happy accident. Yesterday we featured the cover of “The Sound of Crying” that Tenant From Zero did with The Loch Ness Mouse on the “I Remeber That” Sophistipop compilation. It was my first…

Yuzima cuts the crap

He’s back, with a golf buggy full of righteous anger, a Russian dossier full of rage and a foul-mouthed tirade that would make Scaramucci blush (ok, not really to that bit). Scaramucci, Scaramucci will you do the Fandango…No dumb-ass or fat-ass remains unkicked for it is he – Yuzima. This is his new single “Messy”…

Sometimes I think I’ll Chuck it all in

Yesterday was my birthday. I spent the day in the departures lounge of Birmingham Airport, going there around 3, hoping to get the jump seat on the earlier Aer Lingus flight. Of course, I did not and then spent 7 hours wandering around the no-mans land of duty-free, the place that isn’t really a place,…

We’ll sing a hosanna in honour of Magana

Magana – Inches Apart SWIT favourite Magana is back with “Inches Apart”, lacing a truly beautiful melody with heartbreak, sadness and regret. Is this a dream of how things used to be or never were? The video for the song, by Lauren Finerman, is fantastic. The single includes two cracking remixes – “Golden Tongue” by…
