Hope Sandoval And The Warm Inventions – ‘Isn’t It True’

hope sandoval and the warm inventions-isn't it true

Despite how you might feel about Record Store Day, there is a silver lining! Hope Sandoval & The Warm Inventions have announced that a third album is on the way, and it kicks off with a special Record Store Day limited red 7-inch on April 16, it features a new album cut called ‘Isn’t It True’ and the RSD exclusive song ‘She’s In The Wall’. Sadly, we don’t have a stream as yet (and I’m not sure there will be one anytime soon). So you’ll have to make do with the ‘Trouble’ video (lifted from their 2009 album ‘Through The Devil Softly’). For uninitiated, the trio is comprised of My Bloody Valentine’s Colm Ó Cíosóig, Hope of Mazzy Star and Rader Bros’ Jim Putnam. Here’s to long lines this Record Store Day!

Plush – ‘Sheer Power’


Father Daughter Records have shared Plush’s new single ‘Sheer Power’. It’s a reverb rocker that starts all dreamy and reflective before kicking the door down with a wall of guitars. Karli (singer/guitarist) tells Fader, “I’ve always wanted to write a song about my sexuality, more so sex specifically and feeling empowered through the act. As a woman, I think that’s extremely important.” ‘Sheer Power’ is lifted from Plush’s forthcoming EP ‘Please’ (out April 19).

Holy Wave – ‘Freaks Of Nurture’

Holy Wave return with their third album ‘Freaks Of Nurture’, a confident blend of southern psych, folk and surf rock. The fact that it’s all wrapped in warm reverb is an added bonus! The Austin rockers premiered the album via COS and it’s well worth a listen. ‘Freaks Of Nurture’ is out March 11 via The Reverberation Appreciation Society.

Tender Age – ‘Dream Lover’ (Cover)


This week Tender Age are hitting the road with Pale Dian and delivering their new EP ‘Disappear Here’. The Portland quintet have also announced a live spot alongside Tamaryn this May and have already started work on a new album (expected this August)! Take a listen to this woozy / slacker recreation of Bobby Darin’s 1959 hit ‘Dream Lover’, the EP is available from March 9 through Sinis Recordings (which follows Tender Age’s brilliant ‘Get High’ single – as below).

Crescendo – ‘Unless’


Last month we were lucky enough to host the first listen of Crescendo’s ‘Pressure’, a precursor to their second album ‘Unless’ (out now via WWNBB). The L.A. outfit has carved out a catchy selection of cross-over songs that combine dream/jangle pop and shoegaze, without really giving in to any of those genres. An impressive achievement for such a young band. The twelve track release has been praised by The Line Of Best Fit, Impose and Brooklyn Vegan; jump in below.
