National Screen Service – ‘Feathering’

national screen service-feathering

National Screen Service is Mick Harrison of Warkworth, England. He’s the former bass player of Prolapse, a Leicester rock act formed in the early 90s with the aim of being “the most depressing band ever”! Over the past year Mick has posted an assortment of shoegaze-inspired drone and ambient instrumental works, most recently ‘Feathering’. It’s a beautiful tune with a submerged warmth to it. It creates a calming womb-like cacophony (for lack of a better expression)! Check out more at Soundcloud and Bandcamp. Definitely deserves more listens!

The History Of Colour TV – ‘Yr Arms Can Stretch’

The History Of Colour TV deliver their latest full length ‘When Shapes Of Spilt Blood Spelt Love’ this week through Saint Marie Records. The twelve song collection features the lead single ‘Split Blood‘ and the stand out album cut ‘Yr Arms Can Stretch’. Long term fans may be surprised by this one, it’s perhaps the most stripped back the Berlin band have sounded. But founder Jaike Stambach should be commended because this is their most refined offering yet. The History Of Colour TV have pushed past the industrial noise rock wall to find a much more melodic sound. Grab a copy on physical or digital.

“Working-class shoegazers” Crash City Saints are offering a bonus track for free download. The Kalamazoo rockers originally recorded ‘Keep Your Dreams Alive’ for the 2010 LP ‘Glow In The Dark Music‘. The five piece announced on Facebook, “Keep Your Dreams Alive (aka “how many noise loops can we fit into a song before our heads explode?”), previously available only as a digital bonus track on Itunes. Backing vocals by April Zimont (Glowfriends). This song seems especially appropriate to me right now.” Thumbs up!

My Bloody Valentine Working On New EP

Yes, you read correctly! In case you haven’t heard, Kevin Shields has confirmed that My Bloody Valentine are working on new music with plans to record in October or November. *cue dancing monkeys* The news was dished up via NME in London. Best case scenario we’ll hear the EP in early 2015. However, with no release dates imminent and given MBV’s reputation, it’s likely that the EP will arrive at an unspecified time, perhaps during your retirement. Let the speculation begin!

Chances are you’ve heard Kristina Esfandiari’s vocal chords before. Her powerful and haunting tones come in a number of guises from her work with Bay Area shoegazers Whirr, her solo project Miserable and more recently with the San Francisco quartet King Woman. The team over at Native Sound are proud to present the latest epic single ‘Dove / Fond Affections’. The former is a dramatic monster that runs over fifteen minutes! Check it out together with the b-side Rema Rema cover (shop @ Native Sound / Digital).
