Eternal Summers – ‘Window’

eternal summers-gouge-artwork

New Eternal Summers!? Well, not quite. But unless you bought the ‘Gouge’ single you’ve probably not heard this amazing b-side! It’s an indication of how many great songs did make the cut for their third album ‘The Drop Beneath’ (out now via Kanine Records). The Roanoke trio are in the middle of an extensive tour of the USA and Canada (see dates).

Old Amica – ‘Joni’

Old Amica have spent Spring recording a new EP called ‘Drone & Hum’ (available from September 5). The Swedish duo grabbed a microphone and every instrument they could find, recording seven tracks of instrumental music for the release. It’s the first time the pair have recorded together in the same room (as they’re usually located on separate sides of the country). I’ve had the pleasure of previewing the EP and it’s a very special collection! ‘Joni’ is our first listen, with a video produced by Jonas Börjesson. To date, Old Amica have released three full lengths and an EP, click here to discover more.

Blush Response – ‘Without You’

Blush Response delivered a brilliant EP earlier in the year called ‘Telltale‘. This week the Adelaide-based solo artist (Alister Douglas) returned with a follow up, the ‘Dead Air’ EP. Opener ‘Without You’ proves that it wasn’t a one off, it’s a stellar shoegaze tune, well worth your four minutes! In fact, there’s no filler on the four track release. ‘This City Will Eat Itself’ pairs a catchy twee melody with droning guitars, ‘Satellite’ hits you with wall of sound guitars and the title track combines the two approaches. Check out the stream below or head to Bandcamp to download.

The Philly trio serve up a diverse collection of songs that touch on alt rock, punk, psych and shoegaze – take your pick! In any case, there’s some stand outs on offer, take a listen to ‘Fever Dream’, ‘I Smell Bud’ and ‘Tulsa, Ok’. Spirit Of The Beehive hit the road next month, check Facebook for updates.
