Dear Tracks – ‘Aligning With The Sun’

dear tracks-aligning with the sun

Native Sound will release Dear Tracks ‘Aligning With The Sun’ on 7inch this month (order here). The Michigan duo (Matt Messore and Victoria Ovenden) released their stellar ‘Soft Dreams’ EP earlier this year and this is a fitting follow-up. A dreamy jangle popper with multi-layered melodies, they keep getting better!

Bloodhounds On My Trail – ‘Over The Wall’

bloodhounds on my trail-over the wall

Moon Sounds Records present ‘Over The Wall’, the latest offering from Melbourne’s Bloodhounds On My Trail (as premiered by Tone Deaf). The dark and swoony single is a head nod to late 80s/early 90s acts a la The Jesus & Mary Chain, The Church, Velvet Underground and Chapterhouse (among others). It’s a widescreen slow burner that gathers steam (and noise), taking off after the three minute mark. ‘Over The Wall’ follows their praised 2015 EP ‘Escape II’.

Orchin – ‘One’


Orchin have posted their hazy new single ‘One’ (as premiered by Stereogum). It arrives on the back of the two tracker ‘Dark / Wasting Time‘, and is the flip side to ‘If I Ever’. It’s an impressive tune from the noise pop project, somehow it manages to be noisy and chill at the same time! The group is lead by Los Angeles (by way of Sydney) artist Jeremy McLennan, together with Daniel Lavezzo on guitar and Griffin Kisner on drums. ‘One’ was inspired by the Cocteau Twins and Elliott Smith, expect more music from Orchin before the year is out.

Fait – ‘Reverie’ [‘Sonder’ EP]


Amazing surprise from Fait this week; she’s released her new single ‘Reverie’ and a four track EP called ‘Sonder’! The Aussie solo artist (Elise Higgins) was joined in the studio by bassist Rob Stephens and her long-time producer Darren Lawson (My Bloody Valentine, White Lies). ‘Reverie’ is a lush instrumental track with hypnotic bells and strings set over a breakbeat. It’s another stunner, but certainly different from previous efforts. It leads into the dissonant ‘Siren Song’, a progressive ambient piece with loads of pitch bending goodness. It’s a little less dark than her 2014 debut ‘Atmosphere’, but has the same cinematic scope. ‘Sonder’ is a brilliant listen, Fait is all class once again! Australian fans can catch her live on the east coast next month (dates below). ‘Sonder’ is available now through Inertia.

Dead Gaze – ‘Wait For Nothing’

dead gaze-easy travels

Dead Gaze has returned! The acid-drenched creations of Mississippi’s R. Cole Furlow are sounding as warped as ever. ‘Wait For Nothing’ is a ripping cut from his latest full length ‘Easy Travels’ (out this week through Ernest Jenning Record Co). It follows the psych leaning lead single ‘Constantly Happy’, and heads an album of eclectic gems. Dead Gaze as always, doesn’t disappoint.
