Bristol shoegazers The Fauns have announced that Invada Records is re-issuing their 2008 debut album! It’s been out of print but the new version comes with a bonus remix disc, available from July 28 (pre-sale). In other news, The Fauns recently contributed ’7 Hours (Lost Bass Demo Mix)’ to the compilation album ‘Music For A Good Home Three‘. It was compiled by Audioscope who raise funds for the UK homelessness charity Shelter. Not only is the reworked version of ‘Seven Hours’ amazing, it’ll also make you feel warm n’ fuzzy for helping out a charity! The original version can be found on The Fauns second album ‘Lights‘.

Letting Up Despite Great Faults have premiered their latest single ‘Wrapped’ over at Under The Radar. The Texas foursome released their dream pop debut in 2009, followed by the ‘Paper Crush’ EP in 2011 – remember ‘Teenage Tide‘? However, their newer material sounds far more synth pop focused. We’ll find out more when ‘Neon‘ is released on August 12.

Whirr – ‘Mumble’

Graveface Records have dished the news on Whirr‘s second album ‘Sway’, out September 23. Since the release of Whirr’s ‘Around’ EP, the band have toured extensively while making a sport of social media confrontations. That’s putting it diplomatically! Now the five piece are split between coasts, Nick Bassett in Philly, while the remainder are in Oakland. The lead single ‘Mumble’ is just a short blast of what’s to come. While it only runs at two and a half minutes, it doesn’t lack the kind of progressive song writing that made ‘Around’ so great. Producer Jack Shirley has done a fantastic job containing it all. Pre-orders on colored vinyl, CD, cassette and digital are available here. And lastly, Whirr have also announced Stateside shows this September, details and tickets here.
