New York post-punk outfit The Virgins are back with news of their first record release since their 2008 self-titled debut LP, and they were cool enough to give everyone a free download of the single, which we are happy to report is excellent. “Flashbacks, Memories and Dreams” feels nuanced, immediately likable and at times a bit like a Mark Knopfler song—which we mean in a very positive way. We’ve already got it on repeat.

The album, Strike Gently, is out March 12 on Cult Records. Stream or download the single here.

Charlotte Aitchison’s second LP is a warhead, a sonic sour bomb that conceals sneering attitude and caustic kiss-offs beneath an initially shimmering pop sheen.
