Infinity Girl – ‘Harm’

infinity girl-harm

Infinity Girl have dished up their sophomore album ‘Harm’ via Topshelf Records. It’s a playful mix of catchy college rockers and wonky shoegaze. The Brooklyn-based foursome have convinced the folks at Billboard, who posted a stream and interview last week. Stand out tracks ‘Firehead’, ‘Young’, ‘Not Man’ and ‘Hesse’ bolster the solid eleven track offering.

Imandra Lake – ‘Kaks Vööd’ (Wolfredt Rmx)

Imandra Lake‘s dream popper ‘Kaks Vööd’ is now a doom-filled monster thanks to a remix by Pia Fraus drummer Margus Voolpriit (aka Wolfredt). The song is lifted from their latest remix EP ‘Vööd’ which features reworks by Tallinn Daggers, Argo Vals and Bill Wells (out now via Seksound). ‘Kaks Vööd’ was originally released on the Estonian duo’s 2014 album ‘Avane’ (available here).

Gnoomes – ‘Roadhouse’


Dreamy psych doesn’t get much better than this! After turning our heads with ‘Popol Vuh’ last August, Gnoomes are set to deliver their debut LP ‘Ngan!’ on October 16 via Rocket Recordings (UK). The Russian trio posted ‘Roadhouse’ last month and it’s another stunning song, with an effortless groove and beautiful guitar tones. Gnoomes can do no wrong!

Funeral Advantage – ‘Body Is Dead’

The Native Sound has released the debut long player by Funeral Advantage. ‘Body Is Dead’ doesn’t sound very sunny, and it isn’t! But… it is an underrated record (a blend of jangle and dream pop) that’s worth a listen. Funeral Advantage is the work of Boston’s Tyler Kershaw, who has steadily released EPs and splits for the past few years. Pick up the vinyl here, recommended for fans of The Radio Dept or The Mary Onettes.

Beach House – ‘Depression Cherry’

Anyone else pick up the fancy velvet-sleeved version of ‘Depression Cherry’ on vinyl? There’s still a few copies left over at Mistletone, but it ain’t cheap! As regulars will know, Beach House‘s fifth album is in our hands (via Sub Pop). So much has already been said, a mention now seems superfluous. However, it is one of the most impressive dream pop records of 2015 so credit is due. The Baltimore duo chose to take a risk and avoid an easily-digestible (and more commercially viable option) in favour of a hazy, noisy and somewhat sparse creation. The move seems to have paid off, ‘Depression Cherry’ nails the “less is more” philosophy, with stripped back instrumentation and desolate melodies. Some critics have called it “bland”, while avid supporters have hailed it as their best work yet. Personally, I think being able to generate power through subtlety is a master stroke. Love it.

Cull – ‘Truth Bomb’

Next month Cull unleash their new full length ‘Aloft’, featuring the psych rocking singles ‘Magi Fuel’ and ‘Nasty Drought’ plus their latest creation ‘Truth Bomb‘. The Sydney-based outfit never fail to impress, delivering a barrage of well orchestrated ideas that are packed into short psychedelic blasts. ‘Truth Bomb’ is a song of three parts, the playful vocal-led introduction, the explorative mid section, and the space rocking conclusion. It’s a like a meal that tastes different with every mouthful. Enjoy!
