WATCH: The Hoosiers perform 'Worried About Ray' for Nobu Unplugged

One of my favourite bands, The Hoosiersare back after a couple of years of doing the odd gig and trying out new things, and they're releasing their third studio album The News From Nowhere on 3rd March. You can pre-order the album in a sort of Kickstarter-esque manner, with the band using the money from preorders and putting it straight back into the record, towards actually releasing the album (including promotion etc.) For more info on that and the different packages available go here.

But for now.. take a listen to this wonderful live version of Worried About Ray from Nobu Unplugged!

LISTEN: Foster The People - 'Coming Of Age'

Foster The People yesterday announced that their second studio album Supermodel will be released on March 18th. This video accompanies a track from the album, entitled Coming Of Age (which is pretty great and quite what you'd expect from the band if Torches is anything to go by) but also shows a time-lapse of quite an incredible murial of the new album cover.

WATCH: Half Moon Run 'Full Circle' for Mahogany

This Canadian band, Half Moon Run, have such a lovely, fresh sound. Beautiful harmonies displayed perfectly in this live session of their track Full Circle, which was Single Of The Week on iTunes a little while ago. I've been listening to the band's debut album Dark Eyes a lot recently (tip: it's quite good for studying to) and it's definitely one of the best albums that I purchased last year - finding it difficult to choose just one track to recommend as the whole album is pretty great. The Mahogany Sessions is one of my absolute favourite Youtube music channels, they make such great videos and with really wonderful musicians and this is no exception. Really worth a watch.
