The English glitchwave project Tarantina released the EP Teething on the 10th.
Each of the five tracks on Teething has a different centre from the others – ranging from the soft flowing I’m A Loner to Rainbow, the penultimate, with its discombobulating rhythm changes and singular percussion making for a release that keeps the listener wondering where it may be heading next.

The second song to surface from the forthcoming release – If You Leave Me Now – was itself released as a standalone single on the 11th.
