Check It Out #12 (13/01/16)

1. Heroes - David Bowie
Following the sad news on Monday, I felt it only right to kick this week's check it out with a classic from David Bowie. I decided on 'Heroes' as it captures his sound and all that he stands for pretty perfectly. Although at the time of its release, the song didn't gain huge popularity in the UK or US, it finally peaked at #1 in the UK Singles Chart, and is now the second most covered Bowie song, behind 'Rebel Rebel'.

2. Old Satellites - hd hausman
'Old Satellites' is the first track on hd hausman's debut album 'Wring the Moisture from the Surf'. They've created a fantastic seven track release full of folk infused soundscapes, which are easy to lose yourself in and escape to... Enjoy!

3. Flora - Beaty Heart

South London trio, Beaty Heart, have announced the release of their new single 'Flora', set for impact on 26th February (2016), as well as a headline show at Electrowerkz, London on Wednesday 13th April (tickets). These guys are a band to keep your eyes on and your ears tuned in for this year... 

4. The Best You Ever Had - Teddybears ft. Gorilla Zoe

The multi-award winning Teddybears have reopened the door to mid-90s electronica with their new single 'The Best You Ever Had'. Having previously worked with the likes of Cee Lo Green, Sia, Iggy Pop and Ellie Goulding, they've now teamed up with US rapper, Gorilla Zoe, to create this fantastic track...

5. The Gun - Molly Anna

'The Gun' is the follow up single to 'Villain', which was released in October 2015to raise funds and awareness for Samaritans. Molly Anna will be releasing their self-produced debut EP 'Ghosts' on 30th January (2016), but until then enjoy their latest single from the EP, a beautiful, hauntingly honest and emotive track...
