Telstar Sound Drone – ‘Dark Kashmir’


Apocalyptic noise, psych and drone converge on ‘Magical Solutions To Everyday Struggles’ – the new record by Telstar Sound Drone (out March 18 via Bad Afro). ‘Dark Kashmir’ is the latest public track, a trippy and progressive song that gathers barbs as it burns toward the six-minute mark, it follows the equally explosive ‘Drugs Help’.

Miniatures – ‘What You Want’ [Premiere]


I’m super excited to share this exclusive with you, ‘What You Want’ is the lead single/video from Miniatures forthcoming debut album ‘Jessamines’ (expected by this May)! The Melbourne-based quartet recorded the full length at Los Bomberos Studios with producer Matthew Hosking (VHS Dream, Hideous Towns), and then mixed by the band themselves (particularly making use of Annemarie’s production skills behind the desk)! Miniatures self-titled 2012 EP, and 2013’s ‘DIS‘ were both solid releases but ‘Jessamines’ marks their first foray into a fully-fledged studio. Now we have the complete vision of their sound; dense and cinematic. More from Miniatures soon!
