Whirr – ‘Ease’


Nothing and Whirr‘s split 12-inch release arrives on November 17 (packaged with a documentary DVD). Stereogum premiered the opener ‘Ease’ earlier this week, an up-tempo rocker that could’ve sat comfortably on Whirr’s latest LP ‘Sway‘. Check out the full stream below and pick it up through the good folks at Run For Cover Records. I wonder what highbrow hatred Pitchfork are going to throw at this one!? *grin*

Pinkshinyultrablast – ‘Umi’ [Video]


Pinkshinyultrablast are set to deliver their debut full length ‘Everything Else Matters’ this January featuring the lead track ‘Umi’. I’ve been giving the LP a test run over the past week – SBWR regulars are going to love it! The five piece recently premiered the clip over at The Line Of Best Fit, explaining, “The video for ‘Umi’ was shot in California, London and St. Petersburg and then kind of assembled together piece by piece. Being the first song we made from the album, ‘Umi’ shaped the feeling of it in a way. It’s strange how the song just took form during one of our practices, having evolved very naturally and with ease. It’s pretty lighthearted.”

Strange Mangers – ‘Return Eternal’


Been spinning, clicking Strange Mangers latest EP ‘Return Eternal‘ and wow, this is devastatingly pretty music! The Boston foursome hit you with well engineered waves of emotion, as in the sprawling ‘No Effort’ and the overture-esque title track. The biggest downside is, it’s over too soon.
