Rounding up the latest release news…

Yo. Sacramento thrashers Trash Talk, the one and only hardcore signing to Odd Future Records, have announced an LP titled ‘No Peace’. Out in the UK on 26 May, it calls in the collaborative kindnesses if King Krule and MC Wiki of NYC rap trio Ratking, both of those on a bonus track titled ‘Stackin Skins’, plus production from Alchemist. Swallow a trailer for the LP here, and first single ‘Cloudkicker’ here:

In very recent times, alt-dance stylists Blondes, aka Sam Haar and Zach Steinman, shock-released a new EP. ‘Rewire’ features Simian Mobile Disco, Claro Intelecto, Huerco S and Function’s remixes of ‘Swisher’ and ‘Wire’, both tracks off the pair’s LP of 2013 (which is still available to stream online, by the way), also titled ‘Swisher’. Hear Huerco S’s ‘Wire’ mix here:

Take your synthpop in pale shades of acid trance, with a Balearic trim? If so, you’ll like Delphic‘s new mixtape ‘Get Familiar’, a seven track taster of the kind of thing they’ve been doing since the release circa 2013 of their last LP, ‘Collections’.

According to James Cook, ‘Familiar’ mirrors that of the old mill in Ancoats in which it was made. Cook says: “I think the scale of these buildings, high ceilings and reverberant hallways have added to our mood while making the mixtape, not to mention the fact that Manchester’s climate will always create a drowning melancholy we probably wouldn’t find if we were based in LA or indeed Atlanta, where we recorded the last album”.

Shake hands with (and download) it all now via SoundCloud:

Approved BFF-of-Disclosure Sasha Keable (pictured) has dealt a new single by the name ‘Living Without You’. Bearing a slight (make that not so slight) similarity to, oh, one of Dev Hynes’ creations (which apparently it isn’t), it’s the first preview of Keable’s new EP, ‘Lemon Grass And Lime Leaves’. Sasha will back that via a show at Birthdays in London on 26 May, pre-sale tickets to which are available here.

And this is what ‘Living Without You’ is like:

And finally, make way for Avril Lavigne and the super-cute new ‘visual’ for her Chad Kroeger co-written single ‘Hello Kitty’, which she sings in Japanese (a bit). Hear and see Avril singing the track in Japanese, which is pretty much as you’d imagine, immediately and sans delay. Here:
