Eyes Behind The Veil – ‘Besides’


Michael Tenzer (of Savage Sister / Wild Patterns) has produced a beautiful ambient / drone album under the moniker Eyes Behind The Veil. The Chicago-based multi-instrumentalist combines hazy guitars, synths and vocals on ‘Besides‘ with cinematic effect. It’s no pop album, but it’s still surprisingly melodic. Listening to ‘Dream Idols’ is like taking a warm bath! For fans of White Poppy, Grouper or Benoit Pioulard.

Lights That Change – ‘Voices’


Ear To Ear Records presents ‘Voices‘, the latest single from Lights That Change! Summoning the spirit of This Mortal Coil, Dance Can Dance and Cocteau Twins, this dream popper has an 80s feel with a dark edge that reaches into the depths. Lights That Change is the work of Welsh music maker Marc Joy, who is joined on ‘Voices’ by vocalist Rebecca Plain (of Golden Fable) and Mal Holmes (of Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark).
