Spectres – ‘Where Flies Sleep’

spectres-dying-artwork

Spectres know how to create provocative artwork, and noise rock! The kind that makes you think, “what is that exactly!?”. The Bristol four piece are set to overwhelm with their debut album ‘Dying’ (out February 23 via Sonic Cathedral). The buzzwords “white noise” and “visceral” are apt! This is “grab you by the throat” rock n’ roll, a la A Place To Bury Strangers, Odonis Odonis or The KVB.

After several years drip feeding us their delightful creations, Au.Ra have announced details of their debut full length! ‘Jane’s Lament’ will be available from March 3 via felte (pre-order vinyl/digital). The Australian duo are Tim Jenkins (Parades) and Tom Crandles (of Colours/Ghostwood), speaking of which, if you haven’t heard Tom’s tune ‘You Can’t See Me’ - jump on it! Au.Ra are streaming four songs from the album ahead of release, ‘Morning’, ‘Sun’, ‘Pyramid’ and ‘Spare The Thought’. A heavy dose of jangly psych and dream pop, brilliant.

British shoegazers Presents For Sally have announced a new Christmas single (digitally and on limited vinyl) delivered in wrapping paper! ‘Everytime A Bell Rings An Angel Gets Its Wings’ is available here. The trio close out this ambient slow burner with an epic crescendo, but the flip side “Cuntry Song” is a little less festive! Less than a month til Christmas folks.

LaForza – ‘Float’

LaForza love The Jesus & Mary Chain, getting stoned, and staring into the sun! Chances are you do too, and perhaps their groovy new single ‘Float’. The Los Angeles-based act have grown from chief songwriter Izzy’s bedroom into a fully fledged foursome. Beautiful tune!
