The Daily Growl has love for The Shortwave Set, particularly their ace debut album The Debt Collection. The love was a bit more muted for their second long-player Replica Sun Machine. However, the love remains strong for Glitches 'n' Bugs, one of the best tracks on the latest record. Here, some dodgy-sounding character called Marshmellow Mike adds woozy psychedelia, funky drumming, wobbly bass and barrelling rock 'n' roll piano to take the song to new foot-stomping heights.

The Glitches 'n' Bugs single is out on 8 December, including various remixes. The 7 inch has a version of Grace Jones' Slave to the Rhythm.
