Landing – ‘Traveling’

landing-traveling-artwork

Sublime space rock from Connecticut foursome Landing. ‘Traveling’ is their new single out via Heligator Records to help those at the Malindza Refugee Camp. Hardcore fans may recognize it, the song was originally delivered on the band’s first cassette (back in the prehistoric year of 1998)! The new version sounds bigger and better than ever – download and show your support here.

The label states, “Landing recorded this track exclusively for Heligator. Aside from being an incredible musical statement, Snow’s lyrics get at the heart of what Heligator strives to do. “Why can’t you see me/I’m not invisible” is really what the refugees at the Malindza Refugee Camp are trying to say.

Forced to leave their homes because of war, political instability, xenophobia (or all of the above) these refugees want people to know they exist. Not only that they exist, but they are surviving and, against all odds, thriving. They are building libraries, teaching each other and learning/connecting to the world that they feel has largely ignored them.

Your purchase of this track goes directly to the Malindza Refugee Camp library and librarians. Funds go to keeping the lights on, repairs and providing a small stipend for the refugee volunteer librarians. Rarely do you get so rewarded for your generosity. But…here we are.”

Lo-fi rockers September Girls released their debut LP ‘Cursing The Sea’ earlier this year but aren’t resting on their laurels, they’ve just announced more fresh music (via COS)! The Dublin group will deliver an EP called ‘Veneer’ via FortunaPop! / Kanine this November. The title track is a stormy rockfest that descends into fuzzy, feedback madness – check it out below!

Dear Tracks – ‘Connectivity’

Meet Dear Tracks, a new dream pop group out of Grand Rapids, Michigan. To be fair it’s hard to know exactly what the four piece will grow into but if their debut ‘Connectivity’ is any indication, it’ll be a bright future! It’s a reverb swamped, jangle popper with loads of charm (grab a free download). Dear Tracks just played their first show with Literature over the weekend at a Slumberland Records showcase, so they’re in good company!

Grimm Grimm – ‘Kazega Fuitara Sayonara’

7INCH INNER SLEEVE-G-Q4

Japan’s Koichi Yamanoha (formerly of Screaming Tea Party) works under the moniker Grimm Grimm and produces very colourful, spaced out tunes! His latest single ‘Kazega Fuitara Sayonara’ is out September 29 via Pickpocket Records (Kevin Shields own label with Charlotte Marionneau from Le Volume Courbe). It’s an unnerving oddity that’s packed with character. It gave me weird visuals of wind up toys walking in a circle, popping acid. *grin*
