Gliss – ‘Pale Reflections’

gliss-pale-reflections

Gliss have delivered their fifth full length ‘Pale Reflections’, out now via their own label Kraftwööd. It’s a heady mix of dream pop with twee appeal, drawing comparisons to Beach House and The Raveonettes. The Danish/American duo (Victoria Cecilia and Martin Klingman) have been together for decade and ‘Pale Reflections’ is a testament to their hard work. One of their best.

Hyla – ‘Fever Calls Late’

hyla-fever-calls-late

Today Perth rock act Hyla delivered their second EP ‘Fever Calls Late’, a well balanced collection of psych n’ shoegaze. Since the release of their debut single ‘Sides/Remedy’ last year, the foursome have picked up airplay (FBi, Triple J), as well as international praise. In a short space of time Hyla have matured into a well rounded band, capable of dizzying rock numbers (‘The Thousands’ / ‘Come Find Us’), trippy psych (‘Fever Calls Late’), as well as dreamy lo-fi tunes (‘Wiser Way’). Grab a download here or stream in full below.

Uncle Bobby – ‘My Mind Is Already Gone’

uncle-bobby-my-mind-is-already-gone

18-year-old solo artist Robert Downie (aka Uncle Bobby) has already been compared to Tame Impala and Connan Mockasin. Listen to his latest psych popper ‘My Mind Is Already Gone’, and you’ll see why. It’s taken from his forthcoming EP, expected later this year via Deaf Ambitions. Impressive work!
