The Black Ryder – ‘Let Me Be Your Light’

The wait is (almost) over for The Black Ryder‘s second studio album ‘The Door Behind The Door’ (out February 24 – presale). EW has premiered the Aussie shoegazers latest single ‘Let Me Be Your Light’. It’s hushed tone plays out like a gothic lullaby. If a James Bond theme was ever to go dream pop, this may be it! Beautiful song. It follows the diverse singles ‘Seventh Moon’, ‘Let Me Be Your Light’ and ‘Santaria’. The Black Ryder have also announced a support slot with The Jesus And Mary Chain on their upcoming US tour.

Moon King – ‘Apocalypse’

Moon-King-Roswell-artwork

‘Apocalypse’ is a song of two halves (as you may be able to see from the look of the audio file below). The opening minutes build anticipation and then… it’s a mountain of fuzz! Built for the stage, this crowd pleaser follows the Toronto duo’s impressive single ‘Roswell‘. Moon King‘s debut full length is out April 14 via Last Gang.
