Dråpe – ‘Round And Around’

drape-relax-relapse

In October Dråpe gave us their second full length ‘Relax/Relapse’ via Norwegian label Riot Factory, and recently premiered a 60s-styled video for ‘Round And Around’ (via Konbini). The quintet have evolved immensely since forming in 2010, and have faced more changes recently with the departure of Hanne (singer), and the return of Eirik (keys/guitar). I do miss the bendy days of their debut, and Hanne’s femine touch, but Dråpe’s brand of trippy psych pop is always refreshing (especially when recorded on 24 track tape)! ‘Relax/Relapse’ plays out like a sprawling daydream, and it’s catchier than ever. Check out this recent interview with Ja Ja Ja for the full low down.

Estonia’s She Bit Her Lip delivered a really stunning album called ‘Viiv’ last month, jump into the album stream below if you missed it. The quintet’s debut full length is a blend of dream pop beauty and woozy shoegaze, it’s very impressive throughout. Grab a copy via Seksound.

Dear Tracks – ‘All The Outs Are Free’

Dear Tracks - Soft Dreams

Dear Tracks have posted ‘All The Outs Are Free’, a solid jangle pop tune from their forthcoming EP ‘Soft Dreams’. The Grand Rapids band have announced a limited 10 inch pressing via Track And Field Records (mint) and Furious Hooves (violet), plus digital and a run of cassettes (available from February 26). ‘All The Outs Are Free’ is as breezy as it is drugged-out, a beautiful three minutes draped in reverb.

Bedroom Eyes – ‘Restless’

Midnight Werewolf Records have just released ‘Honeysuckle’, the second full length from Bedroom Eyes. The Boston four piece dish out swooning rockers with force, like the catchy ‘Gypsy’, ‘Plain Heir’ and ‘Restless’. Since releasing their 2012 debut, Bedroom Eyes have changed their line-up, ditched a recording session and played shows alongside No Joy, Cloakroom and Infinity Girl. The hard work sounds like it was worth it, this ten track collection is finely tuned! Full stream below.

The Morelings – ‘Too Far’ [Video]

Director Santa Anna has created an impressive new video for The Morelings dream popper ‘Too Far’ (as premiered by The 405). It’s taken from the Philly duo’s debut EP ‘No Sign’, released back in January. The good news is, The Morelings are currently recording their first album with Jeff Zeigler (Nothing / The War On Drugs / A Sunny Day In Glasgow). One to look out for in 2016!

Waitress – ‘Delay Our Time’

Waitress (formerly The Foggy Notions) have posted a pair of gazey, droney songs from their forthcoming debut album ‘Delay Our Time’ (out next month). The Saskatoon duo (Janice Weber and Kalon Beaudry) come armed with stormy boy/girl vocal melodies and loads of atmosphere. The two songs are very different, the title track being a stadium-ready rocker (a la Ride), whereas ‘Engram’ is an introverted slow burner. Both are worth your minutes!
