Hi there my name is Jamie, Shout4Music’s new music editor, and this is what I’ve been listening to in the past week. If you ever have anything you want to send for my consideration then hit me up on Jamie[at]shout4music[dot]com. Apologies for the tardiness; exam revision got in the way this week!

Born Ruffians – 'Needle'

Born Ruffians are back this week with their second cut from the forthcoming album Birthmarks. They’re doing what they do best on this track, Luke Lalonde’s infectious vocal accompanies some funky instrumentation and it’s a definite hit from the outset. There’s also a definite ebb and flow given the slow intro and the way things kick up as the track progresses. Considering what we’ve heard from Birthmarks so far this record is highly anticipated and Needle acts as another exciting prospect to tide us over until April.

Fainting By Numbers – 'A Stone In The Ground'

Alexis Taylor doesn’t appear to have an off switch when it comes to writing music, following a solo EP released last year we have his new project accompanied by Justus Köhncke namely Fainting by Numbers. This track has such a great tone to it with the rolling background synths accompanied by Alexis’ familiar vocal. This track will feature as part of a double A-side single released later this year and I can’t wait to hear what else this project has to offer.

Bad Ideas – 'Shells & Stones'

If you’re in the mood for some pop punk goodness then Bad Ideas are here to provide. Shells & Stones is the first single from their new album Compromise and these guys are talented, it’s a simple band setup enhanced by the soulful vocal that has a likeness to Fireworks in terms of delivery. This will appeal to many I’m sure and with the album dropping in spring we could be hearing more from Bad Ideas as that release date nears.

Public Service Broadcasting – 'Signal 30'

Featured in our sound of 2013 poll Public Service Broadcasting are back with the first cut from their forthcoming album Inform – Educate – Entertain being released this coming May. Once again we’re treated to a truly unique track, the samples used are so effective and they are stitched together by an awesome backing track. This is probably their harshest riff released to date and it bodes well for the forthcoming debut record certainly.

Josephine – 'Portait'

If you ever wanted to harness the essence of soulful song writing then listening to Josephine won’t put you too far from it. Portrait is her new single featuring elegant instrumentation which almost plays second fiddle to Josephine’s superb vocal. Given the buzz about singers such as Amy Winehouse and Adele, Josephine could easily be rubbing shoulders with these types of contemporaries she is simply that good, sit back and take it in for yourself.
