Nothing – ‘Vertigo Flowers’

nothing-tired-of-tomorrow

‘Vertigo Flowers’ is our first listen to Nothing‘s forthcoming album ‘Tired Of Tomorrow’ (out May 13 via Relapse Records). It’s a catchy rocker built to please, and indeed it does! The vocals are more upbeat, less breathy, with a more positive tone than ‘Guilty Of Everything’. It will be interesting to hear whether the Philly foursome shake off the ‘shoegaze’ tag on this album. Perhaps so. Pre-orders (in pretty much any format you can think of!) are available right here. To accompany the album, there’s also a six-part “making of” documentary series on the way, the trailer is below. If that’s not enough, Upset Magazine recently posted a live clip of ‘Vertigo Flowers’ and ‘Eaten By Worms’ (check that out here).

Minor Victories – ‘A Hundred Ropes’

We knew it was coming but we didn’t know when… now we do! Minor Victories debut self-titled album will be in our hands on June 3 via Fat Possum. The supergroup features Rachel Goswell (Slowdive), Stuart Braithwaite (Mogwai), Justin Lockey (Editors) and James Lockey (Hand Held Cine Club). There’s also a few guests involved including The Twilight Sad’s James Graham. ‘A Hundred Ropes’ is our first taste (since Minor Victories posted the teaser ‘Film One’ last year). I expect it will be a very diverse record, but first impressions are positive (pre-order here).

Hazing – ‘Joy Void’

Introducing Hazing, a vocalist and producer from Holland (via Dublin). The 25-year-old has shared two songs ‘Nervous Signals’ and ‘What Youth’ from his forthcoming EP ‘Joy Void’ (out March 4 via Happy Valley Records). Hazing produces a lo-fi bedroom pop with plenty of reverb, and a little 80s synth pop thrown in. Lovely work!

She Bit Her Lip – ‘Voolav Viirastus’ [Video]

she bit her lip-viiv

She Bit Her Lip‘s latest full length ‘Viiv’ is one of the strongest dream pop records of last year, and perhaps one of the most underrated. The five piece recently shot a new video for ‘Voolav Virrastus’ which shows the “South-Estonian sunny scenery, but in degrees of up to -20C!”. Pick up ‘Viiv’ here (via Seksound).

Lush – ‘Out Of Control’

lush-blind-spot

As you may have already heard, Lush are back… and with new music! After 20 years the London four piece have unveiled the video for ‘Out Of Control’ (directed by Martin Andersen). It’s the first taste from their forthcoming ‘Blind Spot’ EP (out April 15 on their own label Edamame). Since being posted late last week, the clip has been heaped with praise. Lush prove they’ve got plenty more to say, while retaining their trademark sound. ‘Blind Spot’ is well and truly on the radar!

Telstar Sound Drone – ‘Drugs Help’

telstar sound drone-drugs help

Phroaar! Telstar Sound Drone have cooked up the monster ‘Drugs Help’ taken from their upcoming record ‘Magical Solutions To Everyday Struggles’ (out March 18 via Bad Afro). Something tells me that the ‘Drugs Help’ single might be a clue as to what those “magical solutions” might be! The Copenhagen psych rockers teamed up with producer Anders Onsberg (of Baby Woodrose / Spids Nøgenhat) for the recording; packed with feedback, experimental drone and dripping with atmosphere!
