Substance Is Meaningless Top tracks – September 2018 – Part 2

(Photo above Vulgarians (C) Sam Joyce)

It’s kind of a shame no one has sent us a pumpkin-themed song so far this month, then it would really feel like Autumn. Anyway, here’s the best of the best, part two.

Want to have your music featured? Then drop us an email on one of these below. 

Oh, and we LOVE being sent ACTUAL, REAL, PHYSICAL music, so drop us a line if you want to make our day. 


Vulgarians – Dead people are easier to love 

Hull’s Vulgarians are a band being tipped for a bright future, and the urgency, vibrancy and energy are all there to see and here with this track.


Dead Naked Hippies – Rare

Rough, edgy, loud and full of attitude. This track is the wake-up call you need. Every day.


Jo Marches – Monsters 

Something a little lighter from Utrecht outfit Jo Marches. The track is taken off their upcoming EP Day In Day Out and is filled with epic synth swells, soaring electronic soundscapes and frontwoman Johanneke Kranendonk’s soft, warm vocals.



Cosmic happenstance sits at the core of Scottish duo LOVE SICK’s origin and music. Seemingly incongruous elements come together in a way that defies assumed boundaries of pop, producing something both menacing and melodic and altogether infectious.

O Future – Stay

We featured this band waaaaay back when they were still going by the name of OOFJ. It’s nice to see that Katherine Mills and Jens Bjornkjaer are still around making good music. Check out their latest track below.


Alexander Vincent – Free Yourself

Alexander Vincent’s feeling vulnerable but fulfilled. It’s been four years since the producer/songwriter first gleamed meteoric success as the drummer of the band Magic! Now he’s returning to the sound that is most true to him, readying a definitive personal sonic statement that’s been bubbling up inside him for years.


INÜIT – Tomboy

Prolific French outfit INÜIT have revealed a sleek, sprawling indie-electro anthem called “Tomboy” which comes off the group’s forthcoming Action LP



Jesse Jo Stark – Rot Away

An early Halloween present for you with the dark, moody sounds of Jesse Jo Stark that hist you at full force with the sardonic spirit of punk and Horrorbilly.
