fury-things-brilliant-beast-split

Guilt Ridden Pop present a stellar new split release between Brilliant Beast and Fury Things (out this week). Brilliant Beast’s ‘No Fate’ is a fuzzy shoegaze anthem, it should sit well with Ride fans. It’s backed by a unique cover of Talking Heads’ ‘Heaven’. The quartet are joined by fellow Minneapolis rockers Fury Things, contributing the unrelenting ‘Some Things’ and ‘Summer Bummer’. Stream it in full below…

Quell – ‘Waves’

quell-artwork

Introducing Quell and their self-titled album featuring the beautiful ambient rocker ‘Waves’. Originally a solo project, Quell is now the work of Tyler Richardson and Hakeem Hashash. There’s some really amazing tunes on this eight track release, ‘Drown’ should please Whirr fans while the latter half of the album diverts into experimental, post rock territory. It sounds like a band finding their feet but with loads of potential.

Westkust – ‘Swirl’ / ‘Weekends’

westkust-last-forever-album

Swedish noise poppers Westkust have posted two tracks (‘Swirl’ and ‘Weekends’) from their forthcoming debut album ‘Last Forever’. The Gotheburg quintet have honed their punk meets shoegaze sound since forming in 2010, so far with a 7inch and EP under their belt. Stereogum recently premiered ‘Swirl’, also giving the thumbs up to Makthaverskan (a post punk band that features two members of Westkust). Needless to say, with explosive tunes like this I’m sure the first Swedish vinyl pressing will disappear fast! ‘Last Forever’ will be released via Swedish label Luxury on April 22, Run For Cover Records will distribute it to the USA later in the year (more @ Bandcamp).

Bizarre – ‘Vectors’

And now for something completely different! Seksound are re-issuing Bizarre’s 1996 tape ‘Cafe De Flor‘ (on digital, and for the first time on vinyl). It’s the second album from the band, who are considered to be one of the first shoegaze bands from Estonia! ‘Vectors’ is just a taste, the rest of the album is quite a trip! A mix of experimental electronica, world music and shoegaze.

This May Death & Vanilla return with their new album ‘To Where The Wild Things Are’ featuring the lead single ‘California Owls’. Known for their incredible 60s-styled psych pop, their latest is equally hypnotic. A vintage sounding pop tune that crescendos into noise, pre-sale is on now via Fire Recordings.  The Swedes have also announced a spot at Liverpool Psych Fest this September!
