What's so good?

Sydney duo Jagwar Ma (Jono Ma and Gabriel Winterfield) are quickly developing into one of the worst-kept secrets in the music industry. Fresh off 2012, which saw the release of their hugely popular debut single "Come Save Me," they've begun this year with the release of another track titled "The Throw." Previewed as "the hottest record in the world" by BBC1's Zane Lowe on Wednesday, it was self-produced and mixed by Ewan Pearson (Chemical Brothers, the Rapture, Pet Shop Boys).

A seven-minute psyche/acid house journey, you'd think "The Throw" might be a difficult listen. But in fact, Lowe's comments are pretty close to the mark, and this track will surely increase the band's growing legion of supporters. Have a listen and find out why NME stated that "Jagwar Ma might just be one of the best new bands in the world"

"The Throw" and bonus track "Four" will be available on iTunes on February 1, 2013 (through Future Classic).
