Grimm Grimm – ‘Kazega Fuitara Sayonara’

7INCH INNER SLEEVE-G-Q4

Japan’s Koichi Yamanoha (formerly of Screaming Tea Party) works under the moniker Grimm Grimm and produces very colourful, spaced out tunes! His latest single ‘Kazega Fuitara Sayonara’ is out September 29 via Pickpocket Records (Kevin Shields own label with Charlotte Marionneau from Le Volume Courbe). It’s an unnerving oddity that’s packed with character. It gave me weird visuals of wind up toys walking in a circle, popping acid. *grin*

Talk In Tongues – ‘Still Don’t Seem To Care’

talk in tongues-still don't seem to care-artwork

‘Still Don’t Seem To Care’ is a heads up for fans of dreamy psych rock! It’s the debut single from LA-based rockers Talk In Tongues. It’s an accomplished sound that lands somewhere between Tame Impala and Temples – not bad for a band that first rehearsed earlier this year! The four piece have a 7inch out on November 25 via Fairfax Recordings, a full length is planned for 2015.

Silver Shadows – ‘Night Drive’

All girl rock act Silver Shadows delivered a very impressive self-titled EP earlier this year. The four piece continue to play shows around their native California while the rest of us catch up! It’s a raw mix of post-punk and new wave with stand outs ‘By My Vampire’s Side’, the gazey ‘Fragile Down’ and the smoky, doom filled ‘Night Drive’. Check out the stream below…

Rayning – ‘Bury The Lovers’

Detroit solo artist Gerald McKay has released his latest EP under the Rayning moniker. The self-titled collection is Gerald’s third (in as many years) and follows ‘Refraction’ from last October. ‘Rayning’ features a mix of dream pop and shoegaze, along with some brutal noise rockin’ moments! The mastering is a little hard on the ears but it’s well worth the journey, for fans of Astrobrite and Ceremony. Side note, the different art for each track is a nice touch!

Linoleum Dream – ‘Iridescent’

Introducing Linoleum Dream, a fresh four piece from Oakland, California. ‘Iridescent’ kicks off their new three track release (available now). Producer Jack Shirley was behind the mixing desk, known for his work with Deafheaven and Whirr. Last month the self-confessed Silver Shadows fans were the subject of controversy following a live show with Crisis Arm and Airs. Apparently bottles were thrown, people hurt etc. Having not been at the show I can’t comment but I hope Oakland stays creative, lots of great music coming from the port city this year!

Allegories – ‘Funny Way Of Loving You’

There’s something very compelling about Allegories ‘Funny Way Of Loving You’ that I can’t put my finger on! The hypnotic video helps, together with that amazing voice (that reminds me of Ian McCulloch from Echo & The Bunnymen). Truth is, nobody knows much about the Belize duo but I’m hoping there’s more from where the debut came from!
