    Iceage have been busy in these strange days, and the Danes now unveil new track called 'Lockdown Blues'.

    “I got the COVID-19 lockdown blues,” sings Elias Bender Rønnenfelt on the bluesy rock number.

    "Written in the wake of the lockdown on gatherings, borders, schools and life as we know it, 'Lockdown Blues' is an attempt at addressing this troubled new reality during Covid-19," state the Copenhagen-based quartet.

    "We’ve felt the urge to touch base now that the physical touch has been suspended and contribute an effort to raise spirit In the face of adversity.

    "All profits from Bandcamp will proceed directly to Médecins Sans Frontières who right now are doing their best to provide aid where it so urgently is needed the most.

    "Our thoughts are with all those in jeopardy to the many various horrors in relation to the crisis, those situated on the front lines and those who are direly compromised.

    Stay safe, take care and keep up the good fight,

    Iceage"

    Before lockdown set in, Avalanche Party headed across country to York where they performed a live version of 'El Dorado' for Young Thugs Studio's series of live performances which showcase some of the UK's best emerging artists.

    'El Dorado' is the opening track on the band's debut album, '24 Carat Diamond Trephine' - which was recorded at the same studio - released late last year.

    You gotta love a band who introduces themselves with a song called 'Everything sucks and it's everyone's fault but mine' - and there is a lot to love about this debut from Baby Shower, a pop-rock-grunge threesome from Melbourne.

    Together for under a year, this first outing throbs with attitude, a kick ass bass, propulsive drumming - and what a voice singer and songwriter Alison Erlanger possesses too.

    "'everything sucks and it's everyone's fault but mine' is about both everything in the world sucking, and also none of it being at the fault of lifelong blameless angel Alison. It's true, she's literally never done anything wrong," the lady herself writes in a wry statement.

    Strap yourselves in for the ride, folks!
