Live4ever’s New Tunes Guide feat. Saint Agnes, Barbarisms and more


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.

These and eight other picks of the week can be found by scrolling through our latest collection. Find out much more about this week’s featured artists by clicking on their individual names, and you can catch up with all our previous editions direct through the New Tunes Guide logo above.

To celebrate the start of another month of great music, the Live4ever Ezine is very excited to partner with Manchester’s Ei8htball to offer one lucky reader a new pair of their EX811 in-earphones! Once you’ve been through this week’s tracks, check out all the competition details below.

It’s all about the sound really.

The skitter of a drum machine, the romance of the 808 kicking “Manchester” into life, the howling feedback that links The Who to Jesus And the Mary Chain…to Napalm Death, the jangle that stretches from the Beatles to Arctic Monkeys, the soul groove that pulls back from Alex Turner’s Sheffield lads to Marvin Gaye and rebounds to Robin Thicke.

What you need is something that can handle all of those sounds. Something that will cope with whatever mood you’re in. Something that will be true to what you need to hear.

ei8htball. It’s all in your head.
