Solkyri – ‘Yes, I’m Breathing’

solkyri-sad-boys-club-artwork

‘Yes, I’m Breathing’ is our first listen to Solkyri‘s second full length ‘Sad Boys Club’, out this week via Bird’s Robe! The Sydney-based four piece have been dishing out apocalyptic instrumentals for almost a decade. The experience shows on their latest, it’s a lashing of reverb-heavy post rock performed with math-rock precision! European fans can catch them on tour through Germany, Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, Austria and Poland next month.

Nothing – ‘Something In The Way’ (Nirvana Cover)

whatever-nevermind

It’s all over the interwebs, but in case you haven’t heard it – here’s Nothing‘s cover of Nirvana’s classic ‘Something In The Way’. And just because I like ruining surprises, there’s no big guitars in this one – just a piano and loads of haunting vibes! It’s officially released on April 18 for ‘Whatever Nevermind: A Tribute To Nirvana’s Nevermind’ (iTunes via Noisey). It coincides nicely with the new Kurt documentary ‘Montage Of Heck’ which is in UK cinemas this week, and North America next month.

Take a listen to the ass kicking new double a-side from Death Of The Author! The Portsmouth trio produce a psych/noise pop sound on ‘Violet’ (akin to Ringo Deathstarr or Fever Dream). Where as ‘Purl’ is a melodic slow burner with a white noise ending! You can download them both for free via their website here in exchange for an email address.

Here’s an exclusive listen to Airs forthcoming EP ‘Apart’, out May 30 via Bone Orchard on digital and cassette (with a vinyl release coming this fall). The San Francisco five piece combine a heavy shoegaze feel with poppy vocals and a crash n’ burn ending! Airs capture their blistering live sound on the recording, which features drummer Tom Davis (of Nevermind Me) and their final session with vocalist Aaron Kelly (who parted ways amicably last year). Sam Retton (of Midwest Moms) has already stepped in as his successor. Ahead of the EP release, Airs will be heading on tour with Crisis Arm for a short run of dates (check them out below).
