The debut 7inch from Sweden’s We. The Pigs has arrived, out now through Discos de Kirlian (vinyl / digital). The Malmo collective combine propulsive punk and layered shoegaze sounds to craft a raw brand of noise pop. ‘DK31’ is a solid debut EP, for fans of Westkust, Fever Dream or Wildhoney.

Peppermint Showers – ‘Soto’ [Premiere]

peppermint-showers-soto

Introducing Peppermint Showers, a new dream pop duo based in Perth featuring Darren Stapley and Sandon French (of Hyla / Lanark). Their debut single ‘Soto’ is now streaming and available at Bandcamp, a breezy mix of dream pop and slo-mo psych; for fans of Au.Ra, Dear Tracks or Day Wave. It’s a fine start, especially considering that ‘Soto’ was recorded with a single microphone in a DIY sun room studio! For updates, hit up their freshly built Facebook page.

Vidulgi ooyoO – ‘Love? Green? Rollin’?’

LoveGreenRollin-Vidulgi-OoyoO

There’s a fair chance you’ve never heard of Vidulgi ooyoO before, despite the fact they’ve been at it for over a decade! The South Korean foursome have toured the US, Canada, Japan, and China (including shows with Mogwai and This will Destroy You), plus they’ve got two albums to their credit (‘Aero’ and ‘Officially Pronounced Alive’). In other words, they shouldn’t be flying under the radar. Vidulgi ooyoO recently delivered a stunning single called ‘Love? Green? Rollin’?’ which features guest guitarist Joey Levenson (SPC ECO) and their new member Yesol Han, stream below.

Venera 4 – ‘Masked Dance’

In case you missed it, Venera 4 dropped a previously unreleased single called ‘Masked Dance’ over the holiday period (download here)! The French shoegazers always release something special each Christmas, and this year they’ve produced a new swooning slow burner to mark the occasion. Looking forward to more from Venera 4 in 2016.

LSD and the Search for God – ‘(I Don’t Think That We Should) Take It Slow’ [Premiere]

lsd and the search for god-heaven is a place

Super excited to share the first public stream of ‘(I Don’t Think That We Should) Take It Slow’, an all new song and video by LSD and the Search for God! The San Francisco collective are set to release their second EP ‘Heaven Is A Place’ via Deep Space Recordings (digital / vinyl) on January 15. It’s the long awaited follow-up to their 2008 self-titled debut, and follows the lead single ‘Heaven’. After listening through the five track EP, I think it’s a big step forward. ‘(I Don’t Think That We Should) Take It Slow’ is a testament to how their sound has evolved since the addition of Ricky Maymi (Brian Jonestown Massacre) and Ryan Lescure (Moonbeams / My Red Dress). This time round it’s a swoony blend of stadium psych and shoegaze, with hooky guy/girl vocals and loads of depth. I know you’re all going to love this one; only about ten days ‘til launch.
