Hope Sandoval And The Warm Inventions – ‘Isn’t It True’ [VIDEO]

hope sandoval and the warm inventions-isn't it true

Record store day has come and gone, and some punters were lucky enough to pick up a limited red vinyl 7-inch from Hope Sandoval And The Warm Inventions featuring ‘Isn’t It True’ and the exclusive ‘She’s In The Wall’. It’s out through their own label Tendril Tales and is our first listen to their forthcoming album. Today the video was revealed, a tribute to the late Richie Lee (of Acetone) who passed away in 2001. Hope Sandoval And The Warm Inventions is Mazzy Star’s Hope Sandoval, My Bloody Valentine’s Colm Ó Cíosóig, with help from the Radar Bros’ Jim Putnam.

Rollercoasterwater – ‘Umami Sounding Fireball’


I have no idea why Rollercoasterwater’s latest EP ‘Umami Sounding Fireball’ hasn’t completely blown up the blogosphere yet! Perhaps it’s because both titles are a mouthful!? Point is, these four tracks are brilliant. It’s trippy psych meets dream pop with plenty of gorgeous melodies to get lost in. Rollercoasterwater are a California-based duo featuring singer/samplist Chuckie Behrin and percussionist Robin Levy. Stream the mind bending EP in full below.

Hyla – ‘Chaos For You’


‘Chaos For You’ is a solid new slow burner from Hyla. The foursome has announced a limited 7-inch run (available here) with the b-side ‘Thousands’. It follows the Perth natives ‘Fever Calls Late’ EP from last June. Hyla did a fantastic job backing Fait for her live shows and conjure more moody brilliance on this tune.

Sulk – ‘No Illusions’


They’ve been likened to a Creation Records Stone Roses, to Britpop royalty, and pretty much every rock act from the 90s, now we can hear it in full! Stereogum have premiered Sulk’s second album ‘No Illusions’ which is out now through Perfect Sound Forever. It’s instantly catchy Brit-rock with all the psych hallmarks we’ve come to expect. Jump in below and see what The Guardian, NME, and The Independent have all been harping on about!

Nothing – ‘ACD (Abscessive Compulsive Disorder)’


‘ACD (Abscessive Compulsive Disorder’ is the latest from Nothing’s forthcoming full length ‘Tired Of Tomorrow’ (out May 13 via Relapse). It’s another melodic rocker with monstrous guitars and catchy vocals. There’s a bunch of harmonies in there – almost of a pop/punk variety. The Philly band consistently deliver crushing rockers that are increasingly cinematic, and this is yet another crowd pleaser! Nothing have also posted the first video from their documentary series, check that out below.

Half – ‘Mind Maps’


‘Mind Maps’ is absolutely stunning! It’s the work of UK producer Half who is a master of ambient guitar instrumentals, influenced by Boards of Canada, M83 and Brian Eno (among others). Half’s new full length ‘Here Lies’ is out on April 29 via Border Series and it’s sounding amazing.
