The Bilinda Butchers Feat. Smany – ‘Sentimental Girl’s Violent Joke’ (Number Girl Cover)

Sentimental-Girls-Violent-Joke-ft.-Smany-(Number-Girl-Cover)

The Bilinda Butchers are back! The San Fran trio have covered ‘Sentimental Girl’s Violent Joke’ by Number Girl, and it’s out now via their own label Zoom Lens. The dream house track features guest vocalist Smany who continues The Bilinda Butchers Japanese-flavoured sound (in unpredictable fashion)! Always great, and always full of character. It’s the first new music from The Bilinda Butchers since their 2014 LP ‘Heaven’, and arrives following their North American tour with Craft Spells.

Swoon – ‘Envy’

swoon-dissolve

‘Envy’ is a newly posted tune from Tennessee shoegazers Swoon. The five piece have been playing shows in the lead up to the release of their debut EP. ‘Envy’ is a psychotic rush of noise with seasick melodies, lo-fi charm and enough randomness to keep you guessing!

Hibou – ‘Dissolve’

hibou-artwork

This week Stereogum dished the news of Hibou‘s debut full length (‘Hibou’ is out September 18 via Barsuk Records). It kicks off with the fantastic single ‘Dissolve’. The Seattle-based solo act (Peter Michel) has been crafting jangle pop (meets dream pop) for several years now, last releasing his ‘Dunes’ EP back in 2013. Hibou’s latest echoes his Craft Spells origins and points to an exciting LP.

Flying Saucer Attack – ‘Instrumental 7′

Holy s**tballs Batman, Flying Saucer Attack has returned! The experimental space rockers put their stamp on the early nineties but called it a day more than a decade ago. However, the Bristol duo (David Pearce and Rachel Brook) aren’t returning in their original form, instead, David has composed fifteen instrumental pieces for the ‘Instrumentals 2015′ LP (out July 17). This is left field awesomeness for the die-hards, who should be pleased with the first taste, ‘Instrumental 7′.

Tamaryn – ‘Cranekiss’

tamaryn-cranekiss

The lead single ‘Hands All Over Me‘ (from Tamaryn‘s forthcoming third record ‘Cranekiss’) left some fans scratching their heads. Despite the merits of the song, it was a big step in a pop-centric direction. But don’t fret, the newly posted title track should ease any concerns, it’s a stunning slice of dream pop that sits closer to the Tamaryn back catalogue (while still being a fresh and new). ‘Cranekiss’ lands August 28 via Mexican Summer.

Lightning Bug – ‘Floaters’

lightning-bug-floaters

Been busy streaming Lightning Bug‘s brilliant debut album ‘Floaters‘ this week. It came out in January and has steadily caught the ear of admirers over the past few months. ‘Luminous Veil’ isn’t a fair representation of the album, but it’s an amazing shoegazer even so! The rest of ‘Floaters’ is more in the psych pop realm but is very unique. ‘Bobby’ is just one of the other stand outs…
