Grave Pool – ‘Through The Skylight’

grave-pool-mnemonics-artwork

This time last year Grave Pool posted a brilliant cover of Another Sunny Day’s ‘You Should All Be Murdered”. Remember? No? Eitherway, his debut full length ‘Mnemonics’ is out (via 80s Ladies Records) and it doesn’t disappoint. The Nashville solo artist (Devan Köchersperger) effortlessly blends jangle and dream pop into beautiful tunes like this one.

Mirror Days – ‘Never Home’

mirror-days_sardonic-sunshine_split

L.A’s Graham Harrington (aka Mirror Days) returned to his hometown of Detroit, Michigan to record a split with Kip Carie’s solo project (Sardonic Sunshine). The result speaks for itself, it’s beautiful work. Mirror Days should sit well with fans of The Radio Dept, whereas Kip’s work is more of a fuzz explosion! Grab a download here.

Mumrunner – ‘Full Blossom’ EP

Soliti present Mumrunner‘s ‘Full Blossom’ EP, now available digitally (with vinyl on the way this July through Wolves & Vibrancy Records). The Finland foursome craft melodic reverb rockers that meld post punk, dream pop and shoegaze. It’s a delicate combination of pop hooks with a rock delivery, not many bands pull it off but Mumrunner make it sound easy. The lead single ‘Bond’ immediately impressed and the remaining four EP cuts are also worth your while.

93MillionMilesFromTheSun – ‘Fall Into Nothing’

93millionmilesfromthesun-fall-into-nothing

93MillionMilesFromTheSun have dropped their new album ‘Fall Into Nothing’! It arrives on the back of February’s ‘Watch Her Fall’ EP and features fifteen epics tunes (including interludes). The Doncaster trio have always enjoyed pushing the sonic boundaries, blurring the line between noise rock, shoegaze and drone. ‘Fall Into Nothing’ is well rounded, unpredictable and uncompromising. Even though album number four packs the same noise assault as previous releases, it doesn’t lack melody. ‘Fall Into Nothing’ is available on CD and digital here, plus there’s a fresh interview at The Big Takeover.

Vallens – ‘Tennesse Haze’

‘Tennesse Haze’ is an impressive new shoegazer courtesy of Ontario-based outfit Vallens. The group is lead by songwriter Robyn Phillips, who is currently recording a debut full length with Jeff Berner (Psychic TV) and label mate Josh Korody (Beliefs / Wish). ‘Tennesse Haze’ is a sprawling rocker that covers a lot of ground over its six plus minutes, the seasick guitars are held together with an 80s backbeat. Big sound, big tune! The single is out now via Canadian label Hand Drawn Dracula.
