Vallens – ‘Devour’

Vallens - Devour

‘Devour’ is a smoky slice of dream pop that would sound at home on the Twin Peaks soundtrack. After all, the band take their name from David Lynch’s Dorothy Vallens (Blue Velvet). The song is lifted from Vallens‘ debut full length ‘Consent’ (out now through Hand Drawn Dracula). The Toronto foursome worked with producer Josh Korody (Beliefs) on the album, as well as Jeff Berner (of Psychic TV). Stream in full below…

Southpaw – ‘Amour Fou’

southpaw-gin

Southpaw is the moniker of Californian multi-instrumentalist Nathan Guzman. Last month he unveiled ‘Gin’, the first song from his upcoming 4 track EP ‘Amour Fou’ (expected late this year/or early next). The hypnotic ‘Gin’ video was streamed more than 10,000 times in just a few weeks. Not bad for a reverb swamped instrumental! And this week, he unveiled the stunning title track; another blissful instrumental masterpiece. I believe this is an early version, and may be changed up. Still, Southpaw is one to watch.

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*
