The Bulls – ‘Come Unwound’ [Video]


While we wait for The Bulls debut EP to arrive, the L.A. duo have unveiled the slickly produced video for ‘Come Unwound’. Directed by Evan Mathis, the video depicts Kinbaku Model Stacy Lewis, who is placed in some rather uncomfy positions! Kinbaku meaning “the beauty of tight binding” in Japanese. The Bulls are guitarist Marc Sallis (The Duke Spirit) and Anna Bulbrook (Airborne Toxic Event), the ‘Come Unwound’ single is available now via iTunes.

Moon Tapes – ‘Back In Love’ (Demo)


Moon Tapes are a new band to put on your musical radar! The Amsterdam four piece have posted a handful of demo songs, the latest being ‘Back In Love’. It’s a beautiful tune with a lo-fi, dream pop feel. The vocals steal the show, with a new wave/crooner charm that sucks you in. Check out more via Soundcloud.

Hideous Towns – ‘Undone’


I’ve been giving Hideous Towns‘ self-titled EP a trashing. You’ve got to hear ‘Undone’! Amazing tune. The Melbourne foursome have been putting in work since delivering their debut single ‘Joy’ at the start of the year. Stream/download the ‘Hideous Towns EP’ here. Oh and, they still win best band bio – “Chris and Ryan are long time pals, nothing sexual, Ashley’s mother was a coworker of Ryan’s so she hooked us up with her little drummer boy, nothing sexual, Alana was recruited from the internet. Nothing sexual”.

The Early Years – ‘DMX (No Way Out)’


‘DMX (No Way Out)’ is the first new music we’ve heard from The Early Years in three years, recorded last month at the 100 Club! The London four piece will deliver the limited tape ‘Live / The 100 Club’ via Sonic Cathedral from November 29. It’s available first at the Spitalfield’s label market, then via online mail order (with a digital download). The last time I was at Spitalfield’s market I saw a music video shoot, there was an older guy upside down in car (the street was blocked off). I thought “ooh, it’s Morrissey!” and it turned out to be Robbie Williams – I’m sorry Moz! Anyway… The Early Years already have plans for a full length in 2015 so there’s plenty to look forward to! In other spaced-out rock news, the ‘Psych For Sore Eyes 2′ is now officially available.

Moonbell – ‘Warm Head Rush’ [Video Premiere]


Brooklyn-based visual artist Stephan Hawk has directed Moonbell‘s mind-bending new video for ‘Warm Head Rush’. It’s taken from the Californian foursome’s ‘Afterlives’ LP, available now via Hypnogram! The footage was shot at an Oakland house party (that fellow rockers Linoleum Dream and Balms also played at), with added shots of a freight elevator in an old agricultural building.

BUT WAIT there’s more! I’m happy to announce that Moonbell are releasing a new (and free) EP called ‘Supernumerary’. It features songs recorded between their debut EP ‘Figurine’ in 2010 and their ‘Afterlives’ full length. ‘Supernumerary’ will be available for download via Bandcamp today. For fans of trippy psych, lo-fi post punk and everything in between!
