Sheffield, UK four-piece Best Friends have a debut album on the way via FatCat Records called Hot. Reckless. Totally Insane., which is due July 10 (pre-order). From the sounds of new single "Cold Shapes," it's poppy garage rock that's not too unlike their labelmates PAWS, though less raucous. That song premieres below. Check it out.
The band also have an upcoming UK tour but no plans to come to the US just yet. Those dates are listed below too.

DOWNLOAD: C Duncan - "For" (MP3)
Glasgow resident Chris Duncan, who records under the name C Duncan and also has a soundcloud page under the name Mr. Duncan, got his degree in composition at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, where he studied classical music, and since then he's spent his time writing pop songs. He personally refers to his music as Ditsy Doo-da because he describes it as "quite whimsical and dream-like," and the songs make a pretty good case for that. His sound contains oddities similar to Animal Collective (who he names as an influence), Battles, or Sufjan Stevens, but it's clear that his influences aren't only contemporary. There's an old soul to his songs that has its roots in the pre-rock 'n' roll era of pop music.
C Duncan has a few demos online that you can stream below. He hasn't announced plans for an official album or tour yet, but when he does, but FatCat Records uploaded his demo, "For," to their demo site, so there's something.

As you may remember us telling you, Glasgow trio PAWS are releasing their debut album, Cokefloat!, next month on FatCat Records and is loaded with mega-catchy, buzzy pop. The band just recorded a "FatCat Session" which involves them performing some of their songs live under what appears to be a very large blanket fort. We've got the premiere of the jangly, rockin' "Jellyfish" from those sessions and you can watch it below.
While PAWS have yet to eye North America, the band have announced a European tour that will have them trucking through Belgium, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Germany and elsewhere. All tour dates are listed below, along with the "FatCat Session" video.
