Newmoon – ‘Helium’ [VIDEO]


Just in case you needed a reminder that Newmoon‘s album ‘Space’ will be available soon, the Belgium rockers have dropped a stellar video for ‘Helium’! The dream pop / space rock foursome may be sitting on one of the year’s strongest debuts; we’ll find out when ‘Space’ lands on October 14 through PIAS / Mayfly Records (USA).

Tears Run Rings – ‘Things Have Changed’


After six years in the making, Tears Run Rings have announced their third album ‘In Surges’ (will be out on December 2 via Deep Space Recordings/Darla). The sedate slowburner ‘Things Have Changed’ is our first listen, a blissful introduction. The four piece are now living in three different cities (Portland, San Francisco and Los Angeles), so much of the collaboration this time round has taken place online. The album title was inspired by their sporadic recordings, their first official release since 2010’s ‘Distance’. Looking forward to hearing more of this one. ‘In Surges’ pre-orders are available now through Darla.

J. Francis – ‘Last Minute’


After sharing Kigo’s latest album, it only seems right to keep it in the family and post J. Francis‘ newie – ‘Last Minute’. The Queensland-based solo artist has crafted a lovely mood piece, very cinematic. BUT… that ending, what a tease! I want to hear how the next three minutes plays out. *throws toys* Get a copy here.

Hope Sandoval And The Warm Inventions Feat. Kurt Vile – ‘Let Me Get There’


Back in April we got our first taste of Hope Sandoval And the Warm Inventions‘ new album via the Record Store Day single ‘Isn’t It True’. And now we have the first “official” single ‘Let Me Get There’ featuring Kurt Vile. The group combines the talents of Hope (from Mazzy Star) and Colm (My Bloody Valentine’s drummer). Their record ‘Until The Hunter’ has been announced with a November 4 release date (through Tendril Tales). The single is available on vinyl via Amazon, and the album can be pre-ordered via iTunes. The trio’s ‘Let Me Get There’ is a dreamy lounge tune, with all the class we’ve come to expect. Best enjoyed with a bottle of wine!

The Blessed Isles – ‘Caroline’


There’s been several calls for The Blessed Isles to be added to our ‘Shoegaze & Dream Pop Albums On The Radar‘ list. Their ‘Straining Hard Against the Strength of Night’ album has been added, plus I’m posting the lead tune ‘Caroline’ and the album stream. The Brooklyn duo (Aaron Closson and Nolan Thies) spent five years working on the release; a mix of new wave, dream pop and electronic sounds. There’s still some limited vinyl left here, along with digital downloads (available now via Saint Marie).

Danxia – ‘Warm Rain’


British dream pop act Danxia have delivered their debut self-titled EP. The Warrington quartet make it sound effortless on the harmonic opener ‘Warm Rain’, and the single ‘Closer‘. ‘Dislocated Minute’ is a little more abstract; perfect for late night listening. Stream in full below.
