New Slowdive Album Coming In 2017

slowdive-band

Guitarist Rachel Goswell confirmed that Slowdive were working on new material in May, now drummer Simon Scott has weighed in. The news dropped earlier in the week (via Undertoner, via Reddit, and then via some guy at a bar). As posted by Cos; “Perry MacLeod, wrote on Reddit that Scott said it wouldn’t be too far off. I didn’t write it out in the interview since it was just a guess from Mr. Scott, but he said the album would probably be out in 2017.” Word has it that the album has been recorded and is ready for mixing/mastering. The 20+ year wait will soon be over! Now all we need is news about that elusive new MBV EP. *holds breath… … passes out*

Eros and the Eschaton – ‘The Way I Feel 2Nite’ [Premiere]

eros and the eschaton-weight of matter

It’s been three years since we went week-kneed for Eros and the Eschaton‘s brilliant ‘Heaven Inside’, taken from their debut LP ‘Home Address For Civil War’. Since 2013 the Colorado Springs duo (Kate Perdoni and Adam Hawkins) expanded into a five piece; adding Alex Koshak (drums), Mitch Macura (keys) and Ryan Spradlin (bass). Today I’ve got the pleasure of sharing the first public stream of ‘The Way I Feel 2Nite’, lifted from their forthcoming sophomore album ‘Weight Of Matter’. It’s a full frontal rocker with beautifully warped melodies, a head nod to 90s rock royalty a la Dinosaur Jr., Teenage Fanclub and Sonic Youth.

“To me this song is about remembering good times gone, mourning friends lost and reflecting on the impermanence of all things,” Adam says of ‘The Way I Feel 2Nite’. “It’s adapted from a poem written by my buddy and Eros And The Eschaton ghost member, James Finch.” Eros and the Eschaton haven’t painted themselves into a corner with ‘Weight Of Matter’, while their shoegaze undertones remain, they’ve expanded their sound (as in the crunchy rocker ‘Rxx‘) and plenty of mind-melting psych. ‘Weight Of Matter’ is available from August 19, pre-order here via Bar/None.

Seeing Hands – ‘I Knew You’

seeing hands-i knew you

Introducing British foursome Seeing Hands. Their debut single ‘I Knew You’ is a relaxed blend of jangle pop meets dream pop (as heard on Radio X). The Newcastle natives (which features one of the members of High Tide 15:47), recorded the breezy single at Loft Studios with producers Jack Boyle and John Elliott. More to come.
