Who’s Nano Kino!? A lo-fi dream pop duo hailing from Northern England, that’s who! It’s a collaboration between singer Sarah Suri and Duncan Lloyd (of Decade In Exile / Maximo Park). They’re currently at work on their debut full length, influenced by Cocteau Twins, Women and Life Without Buildings. ‘Eyes Before Words’ is our first listen, the LP is expected early 2015.

M83 – ‘Run Into Flowers’ (Maps Remix)

M83‘s 2003 album ‘Dead Cities, Red Seas & Lost Ghosts’ was labelled electronic, dream pop, shoegaze and post rock. It didn’t fit neatly into any classification. It was a case of, “we don’t know what this is but it’s really f***ing good”! It’s been praised as one of the greatest albums of that era. On August 25 Mute are re-issuing M83′s first three albums along with two EPs (out this week) with rarities and b-sides. Take a listen to a remix of M83′s ‘Run Into Flowers’ by Maps!

Side note, The Radio Dept. released their first new song in four years today – listen to ‘Death To Fascism’ here. Hearing the news this morning was like waking up to a rainbow, only to walk outside and have a bird shit in my mouth! Sorry folks but this is a political statement first and a song second, distant second. I respect the message but resent lazy sampling. *climbs off soapbox* *cries in corner* *puts on ‘Clinging To A Scheme’*

Ceremony – ‘I Wanna Play’

John Fedowitz of Ceremony has just posted a bonus cut from the ‘Distance’ LP called ‘I Wanna Play’! The Fredericksburg noise rocker (and former Skywave member) originally released the album last year via Moon Sounds Records. Ceremony has since followed it up with the ‘Birds‘ EP. Often bonus tracks aren’t worth your minutes but ‘I Wanna Play’ is solid, once again John pushes every boundary our eardrums can handle!

White Laces – ‘Nothing Clicks’

As we wait patiently for Arc In Round to release a new record, the band’s frontman Jeff Zeigler has kept busy working on productions in the studio with The War On Drugs, Nothing, Kurt Vile and the second album by White Laces. The ‘Trance’ LP is out October 7 via Happenin’ Records featuring ‘Nothing Clicks’ (as premiered @ Noisey). It’s a brilliant tune, with a layered sound that should appeal to indie rock and jangle pop fans.

Curelight Wounds – ‘Eye To Eye’

Curelight-Wounds-Eye-To-Eye-Artwork

Brooklyn noise maker Curelight Wounds is back with a fresh single called ‘Eye To Eye’. It follows April’s ‘Silver Sand‘ EP and continues to blaze a noise rockin’ trail! ‘Eye To Eye’ layers industrial/noise rock sounds over a post punk rhythm section. While the b-side ‘Clear Enough’ is a little more relaxed, it’s a woozy psych rocker with loads of whammy bar action. Pick up the two tracker via Bandcamp from September 9.
