The Black Ryder – ‘Santaria’

the-black-ryder-Santaria-400x400

The wait is finally over for Black Ryder fans, the duo’s new single ‘Santaria’ premiered over at Stereogum today. The Australian shoegazers (now LA-based) will release their second album ‘The Door Behind The Door’ via their own label The Anti-Machine Machine early next year. The Black Ryder is Scott Von Ryper and Aimee Nash, together they released the debut LP ‘Buy The Ticket, Take The Ride’ in 2009 which didn’t get fantastic reviews at the time but still grew to cult classic status (amongst fans of the genre). Fingers crossed the new album will be equally brilliant!

The Bulls – ‘Come Unwound’

The Bulls are lighting up the interwebs with their debut single ‘Come Unwound’. The new project is based out of Echo Park, Los Angeles and features guitarist Marc Sallis (of The Duke Spirit) together with Anna Bulbrook (of Airborne Toxic Event). The duo bonded over a shared love of dream pop and shoegaze, ‘Come Unwound’ is the result. The later half reminds me a little of the Pixies ‘Where Is My Mind’, only dreamier. Keep an ear out for The Bulls’ debut EP, expected later this year.

Landing – ‘Traveling’

Sublime space rock from Connecticut foursome Landing. ‘Traveling’ is their new single out via Heligator Records to help those at the Malindza Refugee Camp. Hardcore fans may recognize it, the song was originally delivered on the band’s first cassette (back in the prehistoric year of 1998)! The new version sounds bigger and better than ever – download and show your support here.

The label states, “Landing recorded this track exclusively for Heligator. Aside from being an incredible musical statement, Snow’s lyrics get at the heart of what Heligator strives to do. “Why can’t you see me/I’m not invisible” is really what the refugees at the Malindza Refugee Camp are trying to say.

Forced to leave their homes because of war, political instability, xenophobia (or all of the above) these refugees want people to know they exist. Not only that they exist, but they are surviving and, against all odds, thriving. They are building libraries, teaching each other and learning/connecting to the world that they feel has largely ignored them.

Your purchase of this track goes directly to the Malindza Refugee Camp library and librarians. Funds go to keeping the lights on, repairs and providing a small stipend for the refugee volunteer librarians. Rarely do you get so rewarded for your generosity. But…here we are.”
