Liz Harris (of Grouper) unveiled a new single last week with her side project Helen. It’s only short, but ‘Motorcycle’ points to an exciting debut album, one filled with copious reverb n’ fuzz!

Sleepy – ‘The Ride Up’

sleepy-ep

‘The Ride Up’ is a fuzz filled, feel good rocker from Sleepy‘s forthcoming debut EP. The Aussie trio rebirth 90s nostalgia in a super fun way, with a head nod to classic acts like Teengage Fanclub, Smudge, and Redd Kross. It follows last year’s ‘Hit And Run’ 7inch and should put a smile on your face! There’s also fresh fuzzy singles from Major Leagues and Yuck to check out this week. \m/

Weird. – ‘Summerbliss’ [Video Premiere]

weird-summerbliss

Here’s a first look at Weird‘s new video ‘Summerbliss’! it’s a super pretty slow burner with a cinematic finish. The previously unreleased cut was originally recorded back in 2013 for their sophomore album ‘A Long Period of Blindness‘, but it didn’t make the cut. After revisiting the tune a few weeks back, it now has a video, and an audience. The Italian trio produce underrated reverb rockers that land somewhere between psych and shoegaze. European fans can catch them on tour this month (dates below), in the meantime explore more at Bandcamp.
