No Joy – ‘Everything New’

no-joy-on-tour-2015

After a few days of social media teasing, Mexican Summer have officially unveiled No Joy‘s new song ‘Everything New’! The Montreal quartet will deliver their third album ‘More Faithful’ on June 8 (EU/EK) and June 9 (USA) – pre-order here. Following the brilliance of their 2013 album ‘Wait To Pleasure’, No Joy once again team up with musician and producer Jorge Elbrecht for the recording, known for his work with Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti, Chairlift and Violens. The recording sessions were split between Gary’s Electric in Brooklyn, and a farmhouse in Costa Rica! While the presser claims that “At times More Faithful is heavier than anything they’ve done yet”, the single strikes as lighter and less intense, so the wall of noise must be forthcoming! June can’t come quick enough.

Single Lash – ‘Under’ [Premiere]

single-lash-artwork

Single Lash are hard to pin down, the Austin outfit are part 80s post punk, part 90s gaziness, but always drenched in spacious reverb! The trio features Colin Foster and Neil Lord (of Future Museums), together with front man Nicolas Nadeau (of Slow Pulse). On April 7 they deliver their self-titled album through Mirror Universe Tapes (on digital & cassette). Take a listen to the first public stream of the album cut ‘Under’, which follows ‘Bitemarks’ (as featured on Gimme Tinnitus). It’s shaping up to be a great record!

Imandra Lake – ‘Kaks vööd’

Stunning song, stunning video! Seksound present the latest clip from Imandra Lake, the beautiful ‘Kaks vööd’. It’s taken from the ‘Avane’ LP, one of the strongest dream pop albums of last year (download). The Tallinn-based duo teamed up with Joosep Volk (their former Pias Fraus bandmate and drummer), who directed and filmed the video in Soomaa National Park (Estonia).

Megawave – ‘NS1′

megawave-artwork

Ohio newcomers Megawave have posted their debut four track EP featuring ‘NS1′. The four piece have a raw n’ ready sound (influenced by Dinosaur Jr, Ride and Swervedriver). It’s always refreshing to hear music that doesn’t concern itself with perfect pitch or robotic time keeping, instead the EP has loads of loveable rough edges. Plus they’ve got a band name fit for a transformer! Actually… that was Soundwave right? The one with the cassette player chest – off topic! Grab the EP here.
