The first New Tunes Guide of October is led by highlights from East London collective Saint Agnes and Barbarisms.

Now signed to London label Energy Snake Records, Saint Agnes have released their new single ‘A Beautiful Day for Murder’, described as ,‘The soundtrack to a dark and beautiful Western where Lana Del Ray stares down Nick Cave in a saloon bar stand-off’, by founding member and singer Kitty Austen. Our highlight is the stomping b-side ‘Where the Lightning Strikes’.

Barbarisms are ready to release their self-titled debut album on Monday (October 6th), and have a video for ‘Olga Khokhlova’, which both parodies and pays homage to Andy Warhol’s screen test of Lou Reed, drinking from a bottle of Coca-Cola. It was shot in Stockholm, simply on a mobile phone.
