Nawww… ‘Do.Make’ is awfully cute. A nice change from the general lack of light posted on SBWR! It comes from Great Earthquake, the solo project of Melbourne-based artist Noah Symons. His latest album ‘Mind Maps’ was released last month through Lost & Lonesome. Plus… Promised Miracles, an artist collective of top Aussie talent – has released their first mixtape called ‘Basements’ and you can also pick this track up on that!

‘Red Sky At Night‘ the new EP from Sydney rock act All Sparks Burn Out is available now via Bandcamp. The quartet’s sprawling rocker ‘After Summer’ rides on the back of some reverb drenched vocals before crashing into a pit of noise – thumbs up!

‘Ghost Colored Halo’, the new release from ambient/noise vets Lovesliescrushing was recorded in one take with no overdubs. Impressive!

Ahh… the psyched out fuzz of Implodes! ‘Scattered In The Wind’ displays the band’s ability to balance solid song writing with atmosphere and progression. This space rock masterpiece comes from the Chicago-based quartet’s latest album ‘Recurring Dream’, available now through Kranky.

A Place To Bury Strangers have a prolific work ethic – they’re already working on album number four. Keep in mind it’s been barely a year since their last LP ‘Worship’ and just weeks since we got our hands on their new EP ‘Strange Moon’. The seven track release sees APBS cover the work of Oregon-based garage rock band Dead Moon. EP cut ‘I’m Wise’ gives you an idea of what to expect, this is a stripped back, raw APBS. The rough edges are a perfect fit.
