Brothers In Law – ‘Middle Of Nowhere’

brothers-in-law-raise

Brothers In Law return with ‘Middle Of Nowhere’ taken from their forthcoming second album ‘Raise’ (out January 29 through We Were Never Being Boring). It’s a darker and deeper sound than their 2013 LP ‘Hard Times For Dreamers’. Since then the Italian trio have toured alongside Slowdive, Wild Nothing, Still Corners and Dum Dum Girls, as well as adding a new member; bassist Lorenzo Musto. Good to have them back!

Pinkshinyultrablast – ‘The Cherry Pit’ [Video]

pinkshinyultrablast-grandfeathered

Saint-Petersburg’s Pinkshinyultrablast give us their latest LP ‘Grandfeathered’ on February 26 via Club AC30! It’s a swift follow-up to last year’s stellar debut album, and may even top that effort. I’ve just had a first listen to the record and it’s full of massive tunes; epic, bold and very LOUD. You may have heard Pinkshiny’s single ‘The Cherry Pit’ before… but now you can see it…

Indoor Voices – ‘Auratic’ [EP Premiere]

indoor-voices-auratic

Häxrummet Records kicks off 2016 with the eagerly awaited Indoor Voices EP ‘Auratic’, launching today (grab it here)! The Toronto shoegaze / dream pop outfit have grown from the bedroom pop experiments of Jonathan Relph into a fully-fledged four piece. To date we’ve enjoyed the debut ‘Nevers’ (2011) and Indoor Voices self-titled EP from 2012, both are unique and brilliant. So there’s high hopes for ‘Auratic’ which features guest artists Sandra Vu (Dum Dum Girls / SISU), Jimena Torres (The Great Wilderness), Alisha Erao (Alligator Indian), and Maja Thunberg (of Star Horse).

As you will hear from the EP, a lot of time and thought has gone into these five songs. Each has a very different feel and mood; from the seasick shoegaze mantra ‘See Wish’, the stripped back beauty of ‘Atomic’, the dense dream pop of ‘Indifferentiator’, the title track’s blend of ethereal synth pop and shogaze, to the woozy closer ‘Say’. This is a great release with zero filler, I just hope it isn’t so long until we get another one! For more coverage, check out Jonathan’s interview with Greg at DKFM.
