The Spirit Of The Beehive have delivered their debut self-titled album featuring ‘Roll Over’ (download). The Philly trio serve up a diverse collection of songs that touch on alt rock, punk, psych and shoegaze – take your pick! In any case, there’s some stand outs on offer, take a listen to ‘Fever Dream’, ‘I Smell Bud’ and ‘Tulsa, Ok’. Spirit Of The Beehive hit the road next month, check Facebook for updates.

Everything By Electricity – ‘Abyss’

Everything By Electricity are back with a dreamy synth popper called ‘Abyss’. It was first spun yesterday by Mr. Simon Raymonde (of Cocteau Twins/Snowbird) on Xfm X-Posure. It’s a beautiful tune, Yulia’s vocals steal the show but I’m also loving those over the top solos (drenched in reverb)! The London-based trio made their debut in mid 2013 with ‘Violet Haze’ and ‘Story Of You’. Check out more via Soundcloud.

Tennis System – ‘Memories And Broken Dreams’

On October 21 Tennis System will release their second album ‘Technicolour Blind’ via PaperCup Music! Our first listen is ‘Memories And Broken Dreams’ which shifts into pop/punk mode, a step away from their shoegaze origins. To be fair, that step was made some time ago – cemented by the impressive ‘Part Time Punks Session’ EP last November. The Los Angeles trio have perfected their high energy anthems on tour with Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, The Fresh And Onlys and Ringo Deathstarr.

Rollerskate Skinny – ‘Shoulder Voices’

rollerskate skinny-band

Medical Records are re-issuing Rollerskate Skinny’s 1993 debut ‘Shoulder Voices’! It’s available from September 25 on limited colour vinyl (pre-sale). The Irish rock act were fronted by Jimi Shields (younger brother of My Bloody Valentine’s Kevin Shields) and produced by Laika’s Guy Fixen (who also helped produce ‘Loveless’). It can’t be easy for Jimi living under that shadow! But… judged on its own merit, Rollerskate Skinny stand tall.
