Wish – ‘All The Time’

wish-wish-artwork

Toronto’s Wish have posted a colourful new video for ‘All The Time’, taken from their recently released debut album (available via Hand Drawn Dracula). It’s a jangly pysch popper with loads of charm! I particularly like the pretty descending melody that takes over in the chorus, it works great with the lo-fi processed vocals (mildly Strokes-ish). Wish are helmed by Kyle Connolly (of Milk Lines, Breeze and Beliefs) together with drummer Peter Gosling (Decades, Lobby), bassist Emily Bitze (Milk Lines) and guitarist Josh Korody (also of the shoegaze outfit Beliefs and Breeze). One big happy family!

Gnoomes – ‘Roadhouse’ (Live)

gnoomes-roadhouse

Russian newcomers Gnoomes released a very impressive EP in July called ‘It’s Moonbow-time, Boy‘. You may recall me gushing over the song ‘Popol Vuh‘? This week the foursome returned with a live video of a fresh tune called ‘Roadhouse’ – take a peek below. It’s a progressive psych stunner running close to ten minutes! In other news, fellow Russian band Pinkshinyultrablast will be releasing their single ‘Umi’ via Club AC30 on November 10. It’s definitely one of the best dream pop songs of 2014 (listen), so it made my day to hear that their debut LP will arrive in January! *does a jig*

The Cherry Wave – ‘Whitey’

the cherry wave-profile

The Cherry Wave have posted ‘Whitey‘, the first track from their forthcoming debut LP ‘Avalancher’! The Glasgow shoegaze act first impressed with their ‘Blush’ EP (almost two years ago). Since then the fuzz fiends have played numerous Scottish shows and support slots with international talent like Ringo Deathstarr. Their latest retains the lo-fi charm of ‘Blush’ and adds a punchy, angular feel. I’m sure you’ll agree, it’s good to have them back! ‘Avalancher’ is expected next month.
