My Red Dress – ‘Secrets’

MY RED DRESS - 'SECRETS'

Ryan Lescure (Moonbeams) and Sophia Campbell (LSD And The Search For God) team up for the new shoegaze gem ‘Secrets‘ from My Red Dress. The San Franciscans look to deliver the song as a b-side to a 7inch (coming soon from Blue Aurora Audio). Ryan tells me an LP is also in the works!

Gremlins Attack – Technical Woes!

GREMLINS IN THE COMPUTER

This week a random technical fault caused administration chaos; troubleshooting, restoring of databases, deactivation of software, reactivation… all the fun stuff! It meant that no new music could be posted. Thankfully the Gremlins have been defeated (for now) but as a result, things are running behind. Back to business over the next few days. Thanks.

Medicine – ‘To The Happy Few’

MEDICINE - 'TO THE HAPPY FEW'

Medicine’s eighteen year draught ends this week with the release of their new album ‘To The Happy Few’ via Captured Tracks. Chances are you’ve already had a listen (via Spin) but if not, take a listen to the album stream below. There’s been plenty of press flying about, including a fresh interview by Philthy Mag. 2013 has been very kind for new music and Medicine do not disappoint – from the opening singles ‘Long As The Sun’ and ‘Its Not Enough’ its clear that these shoegaze vets have something new to say. Their mix of rock and psych pop is more vivid than ever and its not a safe (or expected) listen either. ‘To The Happy Few’ deserves to snare a new generation of fans – something that Captured Tracks has been working hard to do since announcing their re-issue series. What’s more, Medicine are already planning a follow up!

Bambara – ‘Hawk Bones’

BAMBARA - 'HAWK BONES'

Exciting noise rock from Bambara of Athens, Georgia! ‘Hawk Bones’ is a rollicking tour de force that busts though walls of percussion and dissonant guitars. The trio deliver their latest record ‘Dreamviolence’ on vinyl through Arrowhawk Records on August 27 (digital available now).

Teen Mom – ‘Kitchen’

TEEN MOM - 'KITCHEN'

Teen Mom has unleashed their new single ‘Kitchen’ and at over six minutes in length, it’s quite a journey. The Washington DC trio are sounding a little more reflective and progressive than their self-titled EP (released last November). No word on album details as yet but on the strength of ‘Kitchen’ I hope that happens sooner rather than later.

Windhand – ‘Woodbine’

WINDHAND - 'WOODBINE'

Doom choon of the week from Windhand’s forthcoming album ‘Soma’ – available from September 13 (Germany), 16 (UK/World), September 17 (USA) via Relapse Records. Vocally, it sounds like the second coming of Layne Staley to me (a la Alice In Chains).

suā – ‘Twins’

SUA - 'TWINS'

Brooklyn-based shogaze/dream pop band suā (pronounced Sway) have delivered an exciting EP called ‘Twins’ (download). Vocalist Suki Kwan lays lush melodies over crunching guitars and solid production. The five piece formed in 2008 and the experience shows, it’s a well rounded release and a prelude to a full length (expected later in the year). For fans of Asobi Seksu, Tamaryn, Fleeting Joys or Elika.

Writer – ‘IE’

WRITER - 'IE'

Big guitars, bold but simple melody – put simply, ‘IE’ is a winner! This creation comes from Brooklyn-based brothers James and Andy Ralph aka Writer. The duo will follow up last year’s debut LP ‘Brotherface’ with ‘I Make Neon’, a two track release including ‘IE’. Pick up the digital version on August 6 (vinyl from August 31) via newly formed imprint Nineteen98 (they’re also readying Tape Deck Mountain’s new album for later in the year).
