We’ve sorted through our packed inbox for this week’s New Tunes Guide, to bring you all best under-the-radar mp3s, Soundcloud links and YouTube videos. Among the highlights this week are Crushing Blows; taking their inspiration from the likes of Talking Heads and Pixies, the Derbyshire band have received significant radio support from 6Music and BBC Introducing amongst others. There’s also The Plea, who hail from Donegal and will follow up their impressive 2010 maiden EP with a debut full length album this year, and Winston Yellen’s main creative spark Night Beds, whose sound is described as occupying a place somewhere between ‘Mark Kozelek, Gram Parsons and the dreamier side of My Morning Jacket’.

After celebrating its tenth anniversary of championing the best in both established and undiscovered Northern Irish music in 2010, this year the Live4ever Ezine was ecstatic to return to the Eagle’s Rock summit for the leading independent festival in the land, Glasgowbury.
It may not be anything to do with either Glasgow, Scotland or indeed the Pyramid Stage, but as far as having a real festival experience with an original ethos that’s entirely unique, the ‘small but MASSIVE’ bash is neck and neck with Glasto. Couple that with a simply unrivalled mountaintop setting that acts as a nativity scene for what is essentially Christmas for the country’s yearly music gathering, and you’re left with an atmosphere that can’t be described, it just has to be experienced.
In today’s Soundbites, our weekly look at news, reviews, mp3, tabloid gossip and more, AC/DC ready their latest live album, new Morrissey material is due for release, and there’s a look at Tom Williams & The Boat’s new single. Also, free mp3s from Drugg and The Plea, Lady Gaga finishes her latest video, Download gets its final headliner and there’s a classic live Stones video from their collaboration with Martin Scorsese.
