Miserable – ‘Bell Jar’

MISERABLE - 'HALLOWEEN DREAM'

Following a split release with Grey Zine, Kristina Esfandiari aka Miserable has announced the four track EP ‘Halloween Dream’ (out through Native Sound on February 18). The former Whirr singer recently posted the brooding lead track ‘Bell Jar’. It’s a powerful song, pushed along by a rising sense of panic. Be warned, the apocalyptic conclusion may leave you searching for a hug.

Delay Trees – ‘Readymade’

DELAY TREES - 'READYMADE'

Delay Trees third album ‘Readymade’ is out now through Soliti! The Helsinki foursome delivered the jangle pop lead single ‘Perfect Heartache‘ late last year, but don’t expect the rest of the LP to follow suit. ‘Readymade’ is for the most part a sedate affair, full of beautiful dreamy pop tunes lashed with delay and reverb. It’s a sleepy listen but great for a late night headphone session. If ‘Fireworks’ flips your eggs then jump right in. In other album news, the upcoming LP’s by Mogwai, Warpaint and Alcest are either streaming or have been unceremoniously leaked! Google is your friend, more on those records soon.

Dum Dum Girls – ‘Rimbaud Eyes’

DUM DUM GIRLS - 'TOO TRUE'

‘Too True’, the new record from Dum Dum Girls hits us on January 28 via Sub Pop (Europe on January 27). The latest single ‘Rimbaud Eyes’ could sit comfortably on an 80s soundtrack. The ambient pop rock tune is predictably seductive and up to mischief! Not that it’s a bad thing. If you missed the lead single ‘Lost Boys & Girls Club’ take a peek at the video here.

Threading – ‘Sleva’

THREADING - 'AZURE'

Michigan-based shoegazers Threading have delivered a four track release called ‘Azure‘ (download). Opener ‘Sleva’ sweeps the listener up with vocal harmonies before thrusting you head first into a wash of guitars. ‘Azure’ doesn’t detour from a plodding, mournful pace. Which works brilliantly for these songs, the reversed guitars of ‘Lost Blve‘ are hypnotically stunning. If you need to chomp on more Threading songs, check out the ‘Swell‘ single from last November, also impressive.
