Amazing debut from Italian shoegazers La Casa al Mare! ‘M’ is the group’s first single, with the b-side ‘CD Girl’ (available now via Lady Sometimes Records). Both are beautifully crafted, recorded at Studio Wax in Rome. The three piece is Paolo Miceli (formerly of My Violent Ego / Sea Dweller), Marco Poloni (formerly of La Calle Mojada) and singer/guitarist Alessio Pindinelli. There’s no official release date for their debut full length ‘Moonlight’ as yet, hopefully soon!

Another Green World – ‘Disguise’

Stuck “between early 80s synth pop and late 80s shoegaze” solo artist Alec West created a sound that lands somewhere in between. In 2007 Alec began releasing music under the moniker Another Green World, so far he’s got a handful of EPs and albums to his credit. ‘Disguise’ is the latest single (premiered @ Bullett), it’s available on the forthcoming full length ‘Memorial’, out October 21 through 80s Ladies Records.

Daoda – ‘Feel For You’

Daoda is the work of Mike Sacchetti, a Philly-based solo artist who began releasing music as Bad News Bears almost a decade ago. His latest work has a lot in common with the early Captured Tracks roster. The lo-fi, bedroom pop feel is a perfect match for his raw and honest brand of songwriting. Take a listen to ‘Feel For You’ (free download) and check out Mike’s more recent work here.

Grouper – ‘Call Across Rooms’

grouper-ruins-artwork

This Halloween Grouper will deliver her new LP ‘Ruins’ via Yellow Electric/Kranky! ‘Call Across Rooms’ is the first public track, more evidence that the Portland native can devastate listeners with just her voice and a piano. The recording was made back in 2011, during a visit to Portugal. It’s bleak but beautiful. ‘Call Across Rooms’ is bound to be one of the most blogged tunes of the week, and rightly so!
