Waaah! This pair of babes Deap Vally are back with a HEAVY new track Smile More AND a new album later this summer, the fabulously named Femejism.

I've been really enjoying Brooklyn band Prince Rama's latest album Xtreme Now, out on Car Park Records, so when they were in the UK playing a show at Moth Club one half of the sister duo, Nimai, dropped in to Virgin Radio to have a chat for Music Discovery.
