Princess – ‘Molly’

princess-band

Amazing single from Dublin dream popper’s Princess. ‘Molly’ is available now, with a fresh video to match! The spacey artwork is a perfect fit for this slow motion tune. It’s an epic listen that drifts into a guitar solo and eventually wanders back. Check out previous singles and an EP from Princess here.

Spectres – ‘Sea Of Trees’

spectres-sea-of-trees-artwork

Exciting news from Spectres, the noise rocking foursome will team up with Sonic Cathedral to release their debut LP next year! The first song ‘Sea Of Trees’ has arrived with visuals by Sophie Hoyle. It lulls you into a nice melodic space, then drenches you in experimental noise. The Bristol band are never shy to push the boundaries, making sport of rough edges and invasive distortion! Having jumped on the Spectres bandwagon with 2013′s ‘Hunger‘ EP, I’ve got no doubt the LP will be an engaging and challenging listen.

I don’t think I’ve ever heard a shoegaze track with a vocoder before *scratches chin* *strains* … nope! Cochlear Kill‘s latest single ‘Insomni-Stations’ changes that, pick it up on digital or 7inch flexi single from November 7 (pre-sale). It’s the work of Melbourne multi-instrumentalist Mot Bollox, who combines all sorts of sounds into a hazy concoction with loads of poppy hooks – explore more of Cochlear Kill here.

Melody’s Echo Chamber reveal ‘Shirim’, the first song from the forthcoming second album (expected early 2015). The French multi-instrumentalist (Melody Prochet) released her debut full length via Fat Possum, it became one of the most popular psych / dream pop releases of 2012. Somehow her latest manages to be poppier and more experimental at the same time! No word on whether Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker helped with production this time around. ‘Shirim’ is available now for download at iTunes (via Rayon Vert Records).
