Chicago’s Lazy Legs have announced that their debut album ‘Visiondeath’ is on the way with the free release of ‘Sparks’. The shoegaze trio go quiet/loud on this overblown rocker! Vocalist/guitarist Michael Tenzer, bassist/vocalist Laura Wagner and drummer Nick Piontek channel their love for Lush, MBV, Smashing Pumpkins and No Joy into the single. ‘Visiondeath’ is expected this June via Tenzer’s own label Wild Patterns.

manon-meurt-manon-meurt

If you’ve never experienced Czech shoegaze / dream pop band Manon Meurt before, now’s a good time. Label Obscura are reissuing their debut EP next month on white vinyl (for the first time in North America). The four piece have played alongside The Raveonettes, The Ecstasy of Saint Teresa, LSD and the Search for God, and My Bloody Valentine. Apparently during sound check MBV’s sound engineer complained that Manon Meurt were playing too loud. That’s a complement to remember! Grab a copy here. PLUS just this week Black Tone Music posted a video feature with some all new songs performed live, check it out below.

Miserable – ‘Uncontrollable’ [LP Stream]

miserable-uncontrollable

Stream the new full length ‘Uncontrollable’ by Miserable (out this week via The Native Sound)! The former Whirr vocalist (Kristina Esfandiari) is at her best, it’s a dark and emotional trip. Spin premiered the record, calling it “a nine-track work of dizzying lo-fi sadgaze”. It’s the kinda album you need to be in the mood for to fully appreciate, but impressive regardless.

Contrast – ‘Livewire’

contrast-livewire

‘Livewire’ is the first taste of Contrast’s forthcoming album. The post punk outfit have been recording in Melbourne with Stu Mackenzie (of King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard) following the release of their 2014 debut EP. ‘Livewire’ is a reverb soaked rocker that doesn’t take itself too seriously. The video was inspired by JMC classics and was shot on super 8 and 16mm film.
