Cloakroom – ‘Starchild Skull’


Vice have premiered Cloakroom‘s brutal new single ‘Starchild Skull’ from their forthcoming LP ‘Further Out’ (available January 20 through Run For Cover Records). It follows last month’s 7inch release featuring ‘Lossed Over’ and ‘Dream Warden‘. The 100% analog recording (by Hum’s Matt Talbott) is sounding big, with the guitars up front in the mix with solid vocal melodies to hook you in. Thumbs up!

Kigo – ‘Never Knowing’


After many months hiatus, Kigo has returned with the new single ‘Never Knowing‘. It’s a brilliant shoegaze tune a la MBV, one of his strongest creations since last year’s full length ‘So Lost Now’. The Brisbane-based solo artist was unsure whether there would be any more Kigo releases, glad there is.

Dead Mellotron – ‘Winter 2014′


Baltimore shoegazers Dead Mellotron have returned with a fresh five track EP called ‘Winter 2014‘. It’s been almost two years since their last release ‘(is it)‘. The four piece have been fairly quiet since announcing their split, thankfully that didn’t last too long! There were a few shows and a cassette release following the departure of drummer Zach, along with the song ‘Birthday‘ (which oddly or not, doesn’t appear on the new EP). ‘Winter 2014′ is a warm n’ lo-fi affair with dreamy jangle poppers that soon get stuck in your head. Another welcome return.

Beautiful Noise Documentary [Now Online]


Beautiful Noise is now for sale online via Vimeo, physical copies are being rolled out this week! The documentary has arrived a little later than early pledge backers would have liked, but nonetheless, if it wasn’t for the many years of tireless work by Eric Green (Writer/Director) & Sarah Ogletree (Producer/Editor), we wouldn’t have this fantastic piece of music history to pour over. It wasn’t an easy road for the pair, more in our interview here. No doubt ‘Beautiful Noise’ will educate and inspire a whole new generation of music makers and fans. *cue tears n’ hugs*

Sciflyer – ‘They Only Believe In The Moon’


Sciflyer are set to play London this week on the back of their long awaiting new album ‘They Only Believe In The Moon’ (out now via Darla). The Clairecords veterans delivered their debut full length in 2001, after cutting their teeth playing in various college rock bands in the 90s. It’s been almost a decade since the Alameda, CA-based group released ‘The Age Of Lovely, Intimate Things’ but the hiatus is over. Recording sessions for the new record began in 2006, consequently the release features two band line-ups across six tracks – check out the video below!
