Vivienne Eastwood – ‘Shook’ EP

vivienna-eastwood-shook-ep

Brooklyn shoegaze act Vivienne Eastwood have delivered their impressive new EP featuring the lead single ‘Messy’. The four piece have also posted a new video for the opener ‘Snooze’ (which you can check out below). The ‘Shook‘ EP is a nostalgia driven collection of songs; from lo-fi indie pop (‘Maybelline’), spacious dream pop (‘Sea Salt’) to overdriven shoegazers (‘Messy’). The combination of feels gives the mini album plenty of touch points, their first since 2012’s ‘Vanity’ EP. It’s a great listen, ‘Snooze’ and ‘Messy’ are musts.

Kestrels – ‘Kestrels’

kestrels-kestrels

Kestrels have dropped their self-titled full length (via Sonic Unyon Records) and are heading on tour later this month (dates here). The trio have spent two years crafting the record following shows alongside Ringo Deathstarr, Beliefs and Greys. They feel it’s their most accomplished to date and I’m not about to disagree! The singles ‘Waiting’ and ‘No Alternative’ bolster a no-filler selection of energetic rockers, noise pop and shoegaze. Should sound great on the road. There’s still some limited gold/purple splatter vinyl available here.

The dream pop / space rock foursome may be sitting on one of the year’s strongest debuts; we’ll find out when ‘Space’ lands on October 14 through PIAS / Mayfly Records (USA).

Tears Run Rings – ‘Things Have Changed’

tears-run-rings-in-surges

After six years in the making, Tears Run Rings have announced their third album ‘In Surges’ (will be out on December 2 via Deep Space Recordings/Darla). The sedate slowburner ‘Things Have Changed’ is our first listen, a blissful introduction. The four piece are now living in three different cities (Portland, San Francisco and Los Angeles), so much of the collaboration this time round has taken place online. The album title was inspired by their sporadic recordings, their first official release since 2010’s ‘Distance’. Looking forward to hearing more of this one. ‘In Surges’ pre-orders are available now through Darla.

Floating Room – ‘Fun’

floating-room-sunless

Floating Room‘s lo-fi reverb rocker ‘Fun’ leads the campaign for their forthcoming full length ‘Sunless’. The trio is Alec Van Staveren, Maya Stoner (Sabonis/Forest Park) and Kyle Bates (Drowse). The pairing of Kyle’s dreamy melancholia and Maya’s rawness makes for an intimate and compelling tune. I hope there’s more like this from the Portland-based band. ‘Sunless’ will be available on November 18 via Good Cheer Records.
