Check out the latest video from the Southern-tinged indie group Immigrant Union, "Alison", featuring the Dandy Warhols' Brent DeBoer.

Immigrant Union has been appropriately described as “Spiritualized being baptized in a river of Creedence Clearwater Revival.” The Australian group comprises Brent DeBoer from the Dandy Warhols, Bob Harrow from the Lazy Sons, and four other well-known players in the Melbourne country music scene. The band’s latest studio venture, Anyway is coming out in the next few months, and leading up to the release date, a video was filmed for the album’s second single, “Alison”, a song written by Harrow about the end of a relationship.

Check out the latest tune from the Birmingham, UK hip-hip outfit Ruane Maurice, the brooding "Farne".

Ruane Maurice hail from Birmingham, UK. As this up-and-coming trio attests, there’s more to the music scene there than appears on the surface. Ruane Maurice’s self-titled debut is set for release in early September; “Farne”, which you can stream below, is one of the first tracks to come forth from the album. The song is a prime cut of the trio’s dark, brooding take on hip-hop.


The band tells PopMatters about the hedonistic nostalgia that inspired the song: “Like a lot of the tracks on the album, ‘Farne’ is deeply rooted in our love for analogue instrumentation (analogue drum machines and synths) and found sounds for use in layering.
