Rev Rev Rev’s second album ‘Des fleurs magiques bourdonnaient‘ (“Magic flowers droned” literal translation) is out now and ready to stream in all its noisy glory!

The quartet are gearing up for the Cosmosis Festival (Manchester) this March with The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Ulrich Schnauss, and The Jesus And Mary Chain.

After posting a handful of demo songs last year, Walking Misery have well and truly hit their stride with their latest single ‘Stay’. The Denton, Texas foursome combine melodic hooks with a post-hardcore density and shoegaze sheen. For fans of Cloakroom, Nothing.

The Veldt – ‘Sanctified’

veldt-shocking fuzz

With the recent reemergence of A.R. Kane, it was timely to hear that The Veldt have returned to our eardrums! The 90s vets were brave enough to combine elements of soul and r&b with ambient shoegaze. ‘Sanctified’ continues that journey, it’s the first public song from the group’s forthcoming EP ‘The Shocking Fuzz of Your Electric Fur: The Drake Equation’ (out digitally on March 18 / or pre-order the limited run vinyl via the UK’s Leonard Skully Records). There’s also a tour of the USA and Canada planned, hit up Facebook for further details.

Elise Higgins (aka Fait) has enlisted the help of Matsu to shoot her latest video ‘Chasing Youth’. The stunning clip features Elise’s very own “nieces & nephew”. Since delivering her last single ‘Solace’, the Perth native has signed to Inertia, relocated to Sydney, played a spot at Laneway Fest and now finds herself in London, hard at work on her next EP. Not to mention the 1 million Spotify plays she’s accumulated since 2014’s ‘Atmosphere’! The new EP can’t come quicker.

Nothing – ‘Vertigo Flowers’

nothing-tired-of-tomorrow

‘Vertigo Flowers’ is our first listen to Nothing‘s forthcoming album ‘Tired Of Tomorrow’ (out May 13 via Relapse Records). It’s a catchy rocker built to please, and indeed it does! The vocals are more upbeat, less breathy, with a more positive tone than ‘Guilty Of Everything’. It will be interesting to hear whether the Philly foursome shake off the ‘shoegaze’ tag on this album. Perhaps so. Pre-orders (in pretty much any format you can think of!) are available right here. To accompany the album, there’s also a six-part “making of” documentary series on the way, the trailer is below. If that’s not enough, Upset Magazine recently posted a live clip of ‘Vertigo Flowers’ and ‘Eaten By Worms’ (check that out here).
