Ringo Deathstarr – ‘Stare At The Sun’ [Video]

ringo deathstarr-pure mood

Ringo Deathstarr go paws out in their new video for ‘Stare At The Sun’, featuring a dog-only cast (via Noisey). It’s amazing, their make-up is so life-like that it’s hard to tell which band member is which dog!? *wink* Director Thomas Humphreys puts a dark spin on the feline exploits, switching between sad/creepy and hilarious shots. If you missed the Texan shoegazers latest album ‘Pure Mood’ then get involved, on tour now (dates).

Living Hour – ‘Living Hour’

Living Hour’s self-titled debut LP is out this week, stream below (as premiered @ Brooklyn Vegan). The Canadian five piece originally delivered it on limited cassette last year but it’s getting a full release now thanks to Portland’s Lefse Records! We were first introduced to Living Hour back in 2014, through their beautiful single ‘Steady Glazed Eyes’ (when they were still known as The Hours). Their new offering is a fantastic collection of mature dream pop, recommended for fans of Widowspeak, Mazzy Star or Beach House.

Memoryhouse – ‘Soft Hate’

Toronto dream popper’s Memoryhouse independently released their new album ‘Soft Hate’ this month, and posted a full album stream on Youtube this week (as below). The duo (Evan Abeele & Denise Nouvion) haven’t completely reinvented themselves since 2012’s ‘The Slideshow Effect’ but there’s a distinct shift towards more upbeat, new wave and synth pop sounds. This keeps momentum going (even at their most dreamy)! Pick it up here.

No Body Died – ‘The Nihilist and The Pretender’ [Premiere]


We recently indulged in ‘Dschungel’, an impressive electronic shoegazer from No Body Died. This week we’re celebrating the release of their debut full lengthThe Nihilist and The Pretender’ (out February 19) with the first public album stream! The Aussie duo (Jay Westfold and Declan Humphreys) combine ‘gazey textures, wall of sound sonics, and stormy vocal melodies. After six years working together, No Body Died carved out a sound that crosses genres and delves into deep and dark lyrics. The Nihilist and The Pretender’ is a bit of an enigma, well suited to those of diverse tastes. It’s a solid and unpredictable debut, my faves being the shoegazey numbers like ‘Dschungel’, ‘Loss’ and ‘The Haunting’. Australian fans can catch them live at the album launch this Friday at The Armidale Club (with visuals from Giv). Pick up The Nihilist and The Pretender’ via all online stores (iTunes preorder here), streaming services and CD Baby.

Tape Deck Mountain – ‘Is And Always Was Daniel Johnston’s Delay Pedal’


San Diego’s Tape Deck Mountain have posted two Daniel Johnston covers in support of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI). The idea began several years back when the trio were asked to perform a set of covers at a Halloween show for Gimme Tinnitus. Jump into the overblown shoegazer that is ‘Is And Always Was Daniel Johnston’s Delay Pedal’!
