DinosaurPileUp

Dinosaur Pile-Up release 'Arizona Waiting' on 11th March. In creating the first new material since their acclaimed debut album 'Growing Pains', frontman Matt Bigland once again locked himself away to write. Having decamped to Oxford, Bigland then recorded with producer Ian Davenport (Band of Skulls) to create this explosive rock song which signals a breathtaking statement of intent for forthcoming album 'Nature Nurture' due for release on 13th May. Tour dates announced shortly.

Hottest Record - Drenge - Bloodsports

Zane Lowe | 19:25 UK time, Wednesday, 16 January 2013

Drenge

Adding another impeccably named song to their list of "the coolest songs titles ever ", Drenge brought us Bloodsports tonight and we lapped it up. I really genuinely honestly think these guys have a classic album in them somewhere along the line.

Hottest Record - Sound City - From Can To Can't

Zane Lowe | 19:25 UK time, Tuesday, 15 January 2013

SoundCity

A colossal song to celebrate a colossal undertaking. Tonight's Hottest Record finds Corey Taylor, Dave Grohl, Rick Nielsen and Scott Reeder recording together as part of the Sound City super group of musicians. The reason, to draw attention to Dave Grohl's, by all accounts, brilliant new movie dedicated to Sound City, the legendary LA recording studio. Great music and great history.

Hottest Record - Mallory Knox - Beggars

Zane Lowe | 19:25 UK time, Monday, 14 January 2013

malloryknox

Mallory Knox could quite possibly be the latest UK modern rock band to lead the charge into what is quickly shaping up to be a very good 2013 for the riff. Beggars certainly has all the trade marks. Good energy, good hooks, good riffs, good sound. Good.

All sort of tricks and treats in tonight's Hottest Record. Palma Violets fill their two minutes and 47 seconds with hooks and ideas that more than justify the hype that has been surrounding this band for the last 18 months. Do not miss them at Future Festival next Thursday.

the1975

With the Future Festival around the corner, it's nice to bring Hottest Records from some of the most exciting new artists lined up for this year. The 1975 have been building up to this moment for longer than you'd think which is why their songs sound so formed and the wind is at their back. One to listen out for this year for definite.
