death-of-pop-bubble-bath

The Death Of Pop return with a stunning psych-gazer called ‘Headaches’ (as premiered by Under The Radar). It’s lifted from their forthcoming ‘Bubble Bath’ EP, out July 10 via Label Fandango. Last year the British foursome gave us the ‘Fifth’s’ EP, which was incredibly well received. From the strength of ‘Headaches’, it’s more sunny days ahead! Pre-orders are available now via iTunes.

Presents For Sally – ‘Wishawaytoday’

presents-for-sally-wishawaytoday-artwork

Presents For Sally deliver ‘Wishawaytoday‘, a fresh 7inch single that precedes the release of their new album ‘Colours & Changes’ (out later this year via Saint Marie Records). ‘Wishawaytoday’ is a sunny rocker with a 90s twee feel and a noisy edge. The 7inch is backed by the b-side ‘Hits Like Kisses’ which begins like a lullaby, and ends with a white hot, wall of sound! Presents For Sally formed in the late noughties and have since been praised by BBC Radio 1, Drowned In Sound, XFM and The Sound Of Confusion.

Beach House – ‘Sparks’

We knew Beach House‘s new album ‘Depression Cherry’ was on the way, but we had no idea it would sound like this! ‘Sparks’ was posted online last week and it’s a jaw dropper. Despite ballooning in popularity since 2010’s ‘Teen Dream’, the Baltimore dream poppers don’t compromise on ‘Sparks’. The opening minute indulges in shoegazey textures before hitting the verse with dissonant keys behind the gorgeous vocals. They could’ve made it sound much prettier, and more accessible. I’m glad they didn’t, what’s left is an intricate extension of their earlier work. Very exciting indeed. ‘Depression Cherry’ is out this August via Sub Pop (pre-order).

Gliss – ‘Pale Reflections’

gliss-pale-reflections

Gliss have delivered their fifth full length ‘Pale Reflections’, out now via their own label Kraftwööd. It’s a heady mix of dream pop with twee appeal, drawing comparisons to Beach House and The Raveonettes. The Danish/American duo (Victoria Cecilia and Martin Klingman) have been together for decade and ‘Pale Reflections’ is a testament to their hard work. One of their best.

Hyla – ‘Fever Calls Late’

hyla-fever-calls-late

Today Perth rock act Hyla delivered their second EP ‘Fever Calls Late’, a well balanced collection of psych n’ shoegaze. Since the release of their debut single ‘Sides/Remedy’ last year, the foursome have picked up airplay (FBi, Triple J), as well as international praise. In a short space of time Hyla have matured into a well rounded band, capable of dizzying rock numbers (‘The Thousands’ / ‘Come Find Us’), trippy psych (‘Fever Calls Late’), as well as dreamy lo-fi tunes (‘Wiser Way’). Grab a download here or stream in full below.
