Suburban Living unveiled a jangly dream pop jam this week with the suitably introverted title of ‘I Don’t Fit It’ *kicks at dust*. This one pays homage to 80s new wavers with a head nod towards The Cure. Pre-orders are available now for the upcoming EP ‘Cooper’s Dream‘, out July 31. The Norfolk, Virginia based outfit is lead by songwriter Wesley Bunch who released a number of bedroom pop tunes last year. Wesley has since recruited the talents of Elliott Malvas, Monica Bjorkland and Kenny Bunting to bring Suburban Living to the stage.
Fans of 90s rock take note, Daydreamer‘s ‘Beach Blanket’ is like Teenage Fanclub with overdrive! The Californian quartet have released the six track EP ‘Because’ (free download). The only thing loose about this tune is the snare trap. Its simple, sunny, indie rock.
Tamaryn are back! The kiwi vocalist and partner in crime Rex John Shelverton are based in San Francisco, crafting amazing dream pop meets shoegaze tunes. In 2010 Tamaryn released the brilliant record ‘The Waves’ and now the duo will release the follow up ‘Tender New Signs’ on October 16 via Mexican Summer. The lead single ‘I’m Gone’ can be streamed below…
Connect with Tamaryn @ Facebook or visit Mexican Summer for more information.
Ringo Deathstarr will release their new full length ‘Mauve’ through Club AC30 on September 24! The Texas-based shoegaze act recorded the album at the Bubble in Austin and Skylab in L.A. Fans that pledged support via Pledge Music will get their ears on the record a little earlier, on September 10. The same day the lead single ‘Rip’ will be available. The Japanese version will include three bonus tracks, ‘I Knew You Would’, ‘Sasazuka Station’ and ‘Kiss Me If You Want It’ via Vinyl Junkie Recordings.

Noble Oak returns with the bass heavy single ‘Lover‘. The Canadian producer turned heads with the tune ‘We Decide‘ earlier in the year. Built on hypnotic rhythms and dreamy vocal melodies, Noble Oak impresses once again.
Boston’s Infinity Girl have released the eleven track album ‘Stop Being On My Side’ featuring ‘Please Forget’ (via Sirens Of Decay). Its an untamed delivery of garage shoegaze, brimming with noise and harsh edges. If you’re not one for polished and polite, check out the rest of the record here.
Rising Manchester act Châteaux are back with a bright new single ‘Everything Seems Better’. The lo-fi tune follows on from ‘Oh, Darling‘ and ‘It’s Magic‘. This time round the snare drum has a reverb tail long enough to reach back to ’86 – thumbs up!

Mist Glider has transformed Clams Casino’s ‘I’m God’ into a swirling electronic piece, full of ambient samples up against a crunchy beat (free download). Later this summer Mist Glider will team up with Aeropsia for the full length ‘Stars Are Not Real’.
