Bloom – ‘Rise’ [Video Premiere]


To celebrate Bloom‘s debut single ‘Rise’, we’ve got an exclusive first look at their new video! The quintet sound like a classic British rock act that’s been unearthed from the archives, but nope, Bloom hail from San Antonio Texas. This one’s for fans of Ride, Oasis, The Charlatans UK, and Chapterhouse! The three track vinyl features the stand out title track, the stadium-ready rocker ‘Overflow’, and a trippy tune called ‘Satellite’. Plus there’s a bonus digital download of an acoustic remix of ‘Rise’. The single packs polish, punch and promise. Pick up a copy via Photobooth Records on digital or freshly pressed vinyl.

Meeks – ‘Beatless’


An album of shoegazer Beatles covers sounds ridiculous, right!? But… back in 2013 Japan’s Meeks released ‘Beatless’ and it’s brilliant. I never posted it up at the time but now I’ve returned to it so many times since, it’s only fair that I share the love! It’s not an easy record to find (there’s a few copies on Discogs) but thankfully we can enjoy it via a Youtube stream. So who’s Meeks? The Yokohama act is a side project of the four piece Broken Little Sister, who released their own full length ‘Memories, Violet And Demons’ in 2010 (stream below). Here’s hoping for a vinyl re-issue of ‘Beatless’. *crosses fingers*

Best Friend – ‘Untitled’ [Premiere]

It’s a pleasure to host the first public stream of ‘Untitled’, the latest single by Best Friend. It’s the first of two new songs, and follows their 2014 full length ‘Division’. ‘Untitled’ is part dream pop, part jangle pop. In just three minutes the Tennessee band create a vast sense of space, which may have you daydreaming by the outro. Nashville locals can catch Best Friend live at Queen Ave Art Collective on December 16. For fans of DIIV and Wild Nothing.

Some Gorgeous Accident – ‘Winter Evergreen’ EP

some gorgeous accident-winter evergreen ep

San Francisco’s Dale Marquez has released a beautiful EP called ‘Winter Evergreen‘ (under his moniker Some Gorgeous Accident). The four track collection features some guest artists, including Dale’s wife on vocals. The recording is dedicated to his daughter Eve, so the EP is very much a family affair. This may be the perfect way to put some “christmas music” on the boombox without having to dust off Mariah Carey. Wonderful work!

Ghost Lake – ‘I Feel Everything’

ghost lake-i feel everything

Ghost Lake brim with angular noise, heavy textures and nonchalant melodies. The combination of experimental sounds and swooning shoegaze makes ‘I Feel Everything‘ an interesting record. The Oklahoma natives have captured their live sound, which makes you feel like you’re sitting in their band room with bleeding ears! The five piece loosely deliver some solid songs, take a listen…

Mayfair – ‘The Ability To Dream’

mayfair-the ability to dream

Mayfair‘s debut album ‘The Ability To Dream‘ was released this week via Ozona Records. The Memphis-based quartet indulge in dark n’ heavy gaze on the eight track collection. It’s very much out of the Nothing / Cloakroom rule book but nevertheless, Mayfair provide some crushing moments.
