Superorganism have released ‘Woofin & Meowin’, the theme song from the festive episodes of animated TV show ‘HouseBroken’. “We all love the show, and considering some cartoon themes and soundtracks shaped our childhoods and ultimately our tastes, it was super inspiring to get involved”, say the band. “We wrote ‘Woofin & Meowin’ immediately before we set off on our first tour since the pandemic, and I think you can feel that anxiety and excitement bubbling over”.

The Levellers have released new single ‘Down By The River O’. The track is taken from their new album, ‘Together All The Way’, which is out in March.



The Red Hot Chili Peppers have announced that they will play two UK shows next summer – Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London on 21 Jul and Hampden Park in Glasgow on 23 Jul. Tickets go on sale on Friday.
