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!

Twin Studies – ‘Altered Image’


Twin Studies have sauntered into Atlanta’s Sleeping Partner studios to record a beautiful demo with guest drummer Daniel Betts. The result is ‘Altered Image’, a wind blown shoegazer with beautiful melodies and a reminder that the Georgia-based three piece really need to give us a full length! Pick it up here.

Hope Sandoval And The Warm Inventions – ‘Isn’t It True’

hope sandoval and the warm inventions-isn't it true

Despite how you might feel about Record Store Day, there is a silver lining! Hope Sandoval & The Warm Inventions have announced that a third album is on the way, and it kicks off with a special Record Store Day limited red 7-inch on April 16, it features a new album cut called ‘Isn’t It True’ and the RSD exclusive song ‘She’s In The Wall’. Sadly, we don’t have a stream as yet (and I’m not sure there will be one anytime soon). So you’ll have to make do with the ‘Trouble’ video (lifted from their 2009 album ‘Through The Devil Softly’). For uninitiated, the trio is comprised of My Bloody Valentine’s Colm Ó Cíosóig, Hope of Mazzy Star and Rader Bros’ Jim Putnam. Here’s to long lines this Record Store Day!
