Precious Pepala released ‘Voices’ on 2nd December.

Rising star Precious Pepala shared her brand new single ‘Voices’ on December 2nd. It follows her début single ‘My Eyes Only’ (which we heard in Week 58, August 2022) and latest track ‘Looking for Trouble’ (which we heard in Week 70, October 2022), both of which we heard earlier this year. ‘Voices’ continues Precious’ track record of impeccable pop songs that showcase both Precious’ bold, mature lyricism and powerful voice. It is another big statement of intent from the seventeen year old. Tackling another important topic – this time mental health – pop’s brightest new talent continues her winning streak.

Speaking about the track, Precious explains, “‘Voices’ is a song about being afraid of your own mind and not wanting to be left alone with your thoughts. Recently, I’ve been relating to the lyrics in this song a little too much – especially during the last couple of years when a lot of us have had much more time alone than usual. Our minds can be very dark places at times, but despite the song’s dark nature, I hope it brings comfort to people who feel the same way in knowing that they are not alone or unusual.”

Jo-Jo & The Teeth have released ‘We’re Just Animals’.

‘We’re Just Animals’ is taken from Jo-Jo & The Teeth’s new album, ‘No More Good News’. We’ve previously heard ‘Don’t Get Too Heavy’ (Week 45) which is also on this album.

Canadian Jo-Jo O’Donoghue wasfamously described as a ‘Grungy Goddess’. She journeyed from the Rocky Mountains to the Isle of Wight, via Dublin, before settling in London. Collecting her band of merry men along the way, they produce a glam rock n roll, pop rock mix. ‘No More Good News’ is a riff-slicked pop-hooked rock n’ roll début.

The band are currently collaborating with Andy Blade, founder of original 1977 London punk band Eater. Jo-Jo & The Teeth are now officially ‘Eater’, recently opening for Dinosaur Jnr, with J Mascis joining the band on stage for a couple of Eater classics. Also the band as ‘Eater’ played at the 30th anniversary celebration of Cleopatra records at the O2 Islington. The collaboration continues to open doors, and put Jo-Jo & The Teeth on the rock n roll map.

Jo-Jo & The Teeth have a website, at jojoandtheteeth.com, which has links to all their socials and download sites.


Time of the Mouth have recently released ‘You’re Falling Apart Kid’.

Founded by lead singer Chris Jones and original bass player James Chatfield in early 2011, Time of the Mouth have been a band for a little over a decade. Inspired by bands such as Fall Out Boy and Four Year Strong, Chris Jones developed his own unique brand of pop-punk mixed with emo undertones that helped shape the modern sound of Time of the Mouth.

Many line-up changes have occurred over the years. Then singer Chris Jones met current bass player Mitch Tyler and drummer Ollie Badger. They met through the local music scene in their home town of Worcester. From the first rehearsal it was clear that the cocktail of musical influences was going to blend beautifully. This developed into writing their début album ‘30 Seconds’ due for release in January 2023. With lead singles ‘RIDE (Here We Go Again)’which we heard back in August (Week 62) and now ‘You’re Falling Apart Kid’.

Speaking about this track, Chris Jones says, “I wrote this song at a very delicate time after just going through a rough breakup. The song is very introspective and it just describes how I felt at the time. It’s one of those songs that will mean something to me for a long time and I feel that every time I sing it. It captured that moment in time perfectly and the production massively amplifies all the emotions and nuances of different emotions throughout the track.”

Time of the Mouth are an incredibly ambitious. They are also a hard working group of best friends who live to play music as often and as loud as humanly possible. They have a website, at timeofthemouth.com, and are on Facebook, Twitter, Insta, YouTube, Spotify and AppleMusic.


Just Us have released ‘Little House’.

Neo Records released this track in the Netherlands, and that’s all I know.


Harry Stone released ‘Original Love’ on 9th December.

We’ve previously heard ‘Easy’ (Week 57, July 2022) and ‘Boy’ (Week 69, October 2022) from Harry Stone.

‘Original Love’ is a hugely accomplished, emotionally raw step forward from Harry Stone. Grammy-winner Jimmy Hogarth, Jon Green and JONAH helped with its conception.

Harry comments, “To hear this is to hear a person so torn apart they don’t know which way is up, as that’s what was happening to me. I changed my life after recording this track. It came at a time when I was realising I had to develop a healthy relationship with myself, I had to just be alone for a long time…nobody else had the answers.”

A song ultimately about reconciling internal struggles, ‘Original Love’ nonetheless passed the all-important ‘Meet the Parents’ test, as Harry recalls. “My Dad stays with me in London every Thursday to make evening rehearsals for an orchestra in Stockwell. Every time without fail he asks to hear my new music. Usually he’ll dismantle the harmony while it’s playing, or test himself to hear the time signature, but in this case he just listened, head down, eyes closed. I could tell this song was special when that happened, it was almost like it stopped being a song and became something else.

Harry has a linktr page with links to all his social media and download sites for his music.


LJ Coon has released ‘Victoria-Victoria’.

We’ve previously heard a number of tracks from LJ Coon (‘Thank You for Being my Glasses’ (Week 70, October 2022), ‘I’ll Tell the World I Love You’ (Week 67 October 2022) ‘Pretty Blue Eyes’ (Week 60, August 2021) and ‘Full Tilt Boogie’ (Week 64, September 2022)).

This is LJ Coon’s tribute to Queen Victoria.

Queen Victoria was born on May 24, 1819 and died on January 22, 1901. She was 5 feet tall and had nine children. She was Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland from June 20, 1837 until her death. Her reign of 63 years and seven months was longer than that of any previous British monarch. Within the United Kingdon, it was a period of industrial, political, scientific, and military change. There was also a great expansion of the British Empire. In 1876, the British Parliament voted to grant her the additional title of Empress of India.
