Mentalease – ‘Indian Summer’


Columbus rockers Mentalease return this week with their new album ‘Indian Summer’ featuring ‘Heavy Eyes’. In addition to digital, the trio have pressed 100 copies on vinyl, head to Bandcamp to grab one. There’s plenty of surprises on the record, it’s not all straightforward rock n’ shoegaze. ‘When We First Met’ is an example of the experimental tunes on offer, a swirling instrumental that’s just brilliant! ‘Once’ is also great. Despite the fact that we’re well into the silly season, there’s still quality albums being released. Jump in below!

Cloakroom – ‘Starchild Skull’


Vice have premiered Cloakroom‘s brutal new single ‘Starchild Skull’ from their forthcoming LP ‘Further Out’ (available January 20 through Run For Cover Records). It follows last month’s 7inch release featuring ‘Lossed Over’ and ‘Dream Warden‘. The 100% analog recording (by Hum’s Matt Talbott) is sounding big, with the guitars up front in the mix with solid vocal melodies to hook you in. Thumbs up!

Kigo – ‘Never Knowing’


After many months hiatus, Kigo has returned with the new single ‘Never Knowing‘. It’s a brilliant shoegaze tune a la MBV, one of his strongest creations since last year’s full length ‘So Lost Now’. The Brisbane-based solo artist was unsure whether there would be any more Kigo releases, glad there is.
