Pastel Dream – ‘Pastel Dream’

pastel-dream

Caitlyn Whitfield fronts Pastel Dream; a five piece dream pop outfit out of California. Fans of lo-fi jangle/dream pop should lap up their debut self-titled EP. Its a short introduction (at four tracks), but it’s a promising start nonetheless. Name your price at Bandcamp.

Hope Sandoval & The Warm Inventions – ‘Until the Hunter’

hope-sandoval-the-warm-inventions-until-the-hunter

Hope Sandoval and The Warm Inventions return with their third album ‘Until The Hunter’ (featuring the lead single ‘Let Me Get There’ with Kurt Vile). The album is an expectedly solid emotional trip; seven years in the making. It’s good to see that the collab between Mazzy Star’s Hope Sandoval and My Bloody Valentine’s Colm Ó Cíosóig is still producing (even though their respective bands have been back in action). ‘Until The Hunter’ is a moody listen (and you really need to be in the right one to appreciate it). Personally, I enjoyed it as much as their 2001 debut ‘Bavarian Fruit Bread’. Which admittedly, I only properly indulged in recently. Dream pop doesn’t get much classier and thoughtful than this. Pick up the record via Tendril Tales (digital / physical).

Vet Trip – ‘Swimming In Machines’

vet-trip-swimming-in-machines

Austin shoegazers Vet Trip recently delivered their first full length ‘Swimming In Machines‘. It’s a solid debut, so chances are you’re already all over it! The foursome posted the lead single ‘Finland’ back in April and have backed it up with the spacey opener ‘No Smile’, the stormy and dissonant ‘I’m Your Shadow’, as well as the poppier songs ‘Fall Away’ and ‘Sunny Wigs’. Stream in full below…

Joensuu 1685 – ‘Joensuu 1685’

joenssu-1685-artwork

Joensuu 1685 (pronounced Yo-Anne-Sioux Sixteen-Eighty-Five) have been spinning in my house over the past few weeks. You may remember their 2008 self-titled debut; an elaborate mix of noise rock, psych and experimental feedback. The band is three Finnish twenty somethings; Mikko Joensuu, Markus Joensuu and Risto Joensuu. Together they teamed up with Medicine’s Brad Laner to release a 10 inch split but are currently on hiatus. Hit up BB Island for the vinyl.

Soviet Soviet – ‘Endless Beauty’

soviet-soviet-endless-cover

‘Endless Beauty’ is a bold post-punk tune with loads of ‘verb and dark edges. The Italian trio absolutely nail it! This widescreen anthem marks the beginning of Soviet Soviet‘s sophomore album campaign. ‘Endless’ is set to land on December 2 via Felte (pre-order here). *hits repeat*

Dayflower – ‘Big Blue’

dayflower-neverfriend

Leicester shoegaze act Dayflower have posted several impressive singles over the past few months. Most recently on the Edils Records double a-side ‘Neverfriend / Seeing Up‘ and earlier on ‘Big Blue’. The four piece have been at it since 2013, and have so far enjoyed airplay on BBC, attention from FatCat Records, and shows alongside Gulp and Pinkshinyultrablast. One to watch.
