Another Green World – ‘Disguise’

another green world-disguise-artwork

Stuck “between early 80s synth pop and late 80s shoegaze” solo artist Alec West created a sound that lands somewhere in between. In 2007 Alec began releasing music under the moniker Another Green World, so far he’s got a handful of EPs and albums to his credit. ‘Disguise’ is the latest single (premiered @ Bullett), it’s available on the forthcoming full length ‘Memorial’, out October 21 through 80s Ladies Records.

To The Wedding – ‘Come On’

to-the-wedding-silver-currents-artwork

To The Wedding is the moniker of singer/songwriter Lauren Grubb. The San Francisco-based artist recently posted ‘Come On’ (via The Wild Honey Pie) from her forthcoming debut LP ‘Silver Currents’. It’s a sedate stunner that will sit well with fans of Mazzy Star or Memoryhouse. In fact, To The Wedding covered Mazzy’s ‘Take Everything’ on the earlier EP ‘Taken’. As the saying goes, “imitation is the sincerest form of flattery” and when you can do it as well as Lauren does, who cares!? Amazing voice. ‘Silver Currents’ is available from October 28 (pre-sale).

Golden Fable – ‘Armour’

golden-fable-ancient-blue-artwork

It’s refreshing to hear Golden Fable‘s organic approach to dream pop, it’s very much a traditional band setup. There’s double tracked vocals in there but it’s not weighed down by overwhelming production (and what an amazing voice)! The Welsh trio (Rebecca Palin, Tim McIver and Jack McCarthy) release their second album ‘Ancient Blue’ on November 10 (pre-order). For fans of Dead Can Dance, This Mortal Coil and Cocteau Twins.

Sounds of Sputnik Feat. Ummagma – ‘Light Scheme’

sounds-of-sputnik-new-born

Sounds of Sputnik‘s debut album ‘New Born’ was released this week, featuring the talents of dream pop duo Ummagma. Take a peek at the new video for ‘Light Scheme’ below. The Moscow-based artist (Roma Kalitkin) blends his love for post rock and shoegaze with a bunch of remixes thrown in too! A number of notable guests have contributed, including drummer Graham Bonnar (Swervedriver/ Brian Jonestown Massacre), producers Fran Ashcroft (Damon Albarn, Lords of Acid) and Marc Joy (Primal Scream, Oasis) plus many more! It’s very much an international affair, a melding of creative minds from Ukraine and Russia (during a time of social upheaval). Roma’s twenty plus years of playing with various post punk and shoegaze acts has paid off – pick up ‘New Born’ via Ear To Ear Records.
