Nothing – ‘Tired Of Tomorrow’

nothing-tired-of-tomorrow

Just in case you needed a reminder – Nothing’s new album ‘Tired Of Tomorrow’ is out this week via Relapse Records (May 13)! The whole thing can be streamed now via NPR. The Philly rock act has also posted a bunch of updates to their documentary series (as below). In fact, I think it’s fair to say that the promo machine is in overdrive with an online Nothing meme creator, Nothing Emojis, plus 15 tattoo shops are offering Nothing-themed tats on release day! I’m planning on having the “N” logo tattooed on my child’s forehead to mark the occasion. *grins* But seriously, the album stream is sounding solid. They’ve balanced the hard hitters with dreamy laid-back tracks that give the record much needed depth. Now judge for yourself…

Mumrunner – ‘Shawshank’ [Premiere]

Mumrunner are back with ‘Shawshank’! It’s a pleasure to present the first public stream of the single, lifted from their forthcoming EP (coming soon from Soliti). The Finnish reverb rockers impressed with last year’s ‘Full Blossom’ EP. It featured ‘Bond’ which was praised by radio and the blogosphere, it lead to the German and Japanese release of the EP and an extensive European tour last fall.

Mumrunner explain the new single; “The soundscape of Shawshank is scaled down slightly and distortion is used more sparingly than before. The song is strongly melodic and there’s a lot of interaction between guitars. Shawshank tells a tragic tale of the way people squander their lives. Everything there is to say has been said and sung at quite an early stage, and after an oppressive standstill, the song increases instrumentally bit by bit towards its massive ending.”

‘Shawshank’ is available from May 9 from all digital outlets.

Miniatures – ‘Honey’

Miniatures have posted another track from their forthcoming debut album ‘Jessamines’. ‘Honey’ is a melodic shoegazer with feel good vibes! The opening reminded me a little of Smashing Pumpkins’ ‘Today’ before the vocals kicked in – and wow, brilliant vocals! The Melbourne-based quartet (by way of Christchurch) unveiled the first single ‘What You Want’ back in March, an equally impressive track. The album was originally expected this month, so the wait can’t be much longer.

The Stargazer Lilies – ‘Summer’s Gone’ [VIDEO]

Last month The Stargazer Lilies gave us ‘When With You’ and today they share a new song and video called ‘Summer’s Gone’ (via Brooklyn Vegan). It’s a more sedate tune this time round, ideal for late night listens. It’s taken from their ‘Door To The Sun’ LP (out June 3 via Graveface). Meanwhile the Pennsylvanian shoegaze trio are about to hit the road for an epic USA tour (see the dates here).

Champanes – ‘Daysaway’

Beko disques has unveiled ‘Daysaway’, a hushed new dream popper from Champanes. The European collective was formed by Lexi Freider in 2014, since that time the band has released a two tracker on Really Rad Records (as below) and weathered line-up changes. It’ll be interesting to see how Champanes continue to develop their sound leading up to a debut long player.
