I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream – ‘Drowning’

i-have-no-mouth-and-i-must-scream

I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream or simply, No Mouth, take their name from a “dystopian science fiction short story about survivors of a nuclear war”, with influences from The Cure, Joy Division and MBV. The Berlin rock act unleash their debut full-length this month featuring ‘Drowning’. I’m hearing Sonic Youth in this dissonant gem, which you can pick up via Bandcamp on vinyl, cassette or digital.

Maria False – ‘Spades’ [Premiere]

maria-false-spades-beko

It’s no secret that we’re big Maria False fans, so today I’m super excited to share a new single called ‘Spades’ from their forthcoming EP (out later this year via Beko)! ‘Spades’ is a textured mass of provocative shoegaze with loads of atmosphere and a drugged-out swagger. By the noisy mid-section I was stuck in a ‘Spades’ trance… too many decibels! The song follows last year’s ‘When’ album, which packed eight tracks of ear bleeding rock, including my personal fave ‘Blossom’. French fans can catch the four piece at Espace B on March 26 with the mighty Spectres! More from Maria False soon.

No Body Died – ‘Dschungel’

Aussie electronic duo No Body Died have shared their “sonic-ode to the late David Bowie’s Berlin Years” with ‘Dschungel’. It’s the second single from their forthcoming album ‘The Nihilist & The Pretender’ (expected February). Jay Westfold and Declan Humphreys formed No Body Died in 2010, crafting layered electronic work that aims to subvert the conventions of shoegaze and dream pop (a la Ulrich Schnauss, or Reighnbeau). Thanks to Ray for the heads up!

Dead Horse One – ‘Sons Of God’ [Premiere]

It’s been less than a year since Dead Horse One teamed up with Ride’s Mark Gardener to deliver their lauded long player ‘Without Love We Perish’. Today it’s a pleasure to usher in the next chapter with ‘Sons Of God’, the first song from Dead Horse One’s new album ‘Season Of Mist’ (out this October through Requiem Pour Un Twister / Dead Bees Records). This time round the French foursome are joined by another notable producer, The Fleeting Joys John Loring! ‘Season Of Mist’ delicately balances psych rock and shoegaze into hypnotic anthems, ‘Sons Of God’ is just a little taste. The band is also heading on tour this March, including a show in Rouen with LSD and the Search for God. Full details will be announced on Dead Horse One’s Facebook page in the coming days.

The Morelings present the final visual installment from their debut EP ‘No Sign’ (available now). The Philadelphia dream-pop duo have teamed up with director Bob Sweeney to create a 1940s/50s inspired video featuring layered images of vocalist/bassist Kedra Caroline and guitarist Mathew William. A fitting swan song for the EP and a reminder that 2016 holds much more for The Morelings; a debut full length produced by Jeff Zeigler (Nothing / The War On Drugs / A Sunny Day In Glasgow). More soon!
