Keep – ‘Old Man’

Introducing Keep, a new four piece serving up waves of punk and shoegaze on their debut three tracker ‘Hypnosis for Sleep’ (available now). The Virginia Beach rock act come out of the gates with the sort of polish and consistency you’d expect from seasoned pros! ‘Old Man’ may run short (at just over two minutes) but it isn’t lacking in ideas or interesting composition. Whereas ‘Eureka’ is a slow motion rocker that reaches into the depths, fans of Nothing should enjoy this. Keep are off to a great start.

Sounds of Sputnik Feat. Ummagma – ‘Light Scheme’

sounds-of-sputnik-new-born

Sounds of Sputnik‘s debut album ‘New Born’ was released this week, featuring the talents of dream pop duo Ummagma. Take a peek at the new video for ‘Light Scheme’ below. The Moscow-based artist (Roma Kalitkin) blends his love for post rock and shoegaze with a bunch of remixes thrown in too! A number of notable guests have contributed, including drummer Graham Bonnar (Swervedriver/ Brian Jonestown Massacre), producers Fran Ashcroft (Damon Albarn, Lords of Acid) and Marc Joy (Primal Scream, Oasis) plus many more! It’s very much an international affair, a melding of creative minds from Ukraine and Russia (during a time of social upheaval). Roma’s twenty plus years of playing with various post punk and shoegaze acts has paid off – pick up ‘New Born’ via Ear To Ear Records.

Eternal Summers – ‘Window’

New Eternal Summers!? Well, not quite. But unless you bought the ‘Gouge’ single you’ve probably not heard this amazing b-side! It’s an indication of how many great songs did make the cut for their third album ‘The Drop Beneath’ (out now via Kanine Records). The Roanoke trio are in the middle of an extensive tour of the USA and Canada (see dates).
