Modern Rock Compilation – Estranged

The weeks compilation of music includes some of the best new modern rock tracks spanning the last few months. There are a number that we think you will enjoy, including the track from Spector which reminds us of what OMD would sound like if they were a guitar based band.

We also have the latest from Piroshka, a brand new band featuring the lovely Miki Berenyi from Lush.
