The Bulls – ‘Come Unwound’

the-bulls-come-unwound-artwork

The Bulls are lighting up the interwebs with their debut single ‘Come Unwound’. The new project is based out of Echo Park, Los Angeles and features guitarist Marc Sallis (of The Duke Spirit) together with Anna Bulbrook (of Airborne Toxic Event). The duo bonded over a shared love of dream pop and shoegaze, ‘Come Unwound’ is the result. The later half reminds me a little of the Pixies ‘Where Is My Mind’, only dreamier. Keep an ear out for The Bulls’ debut EP, expected later this year.

Foxes In Fiction – ‘Ontario Gothic’

Orchid Tapes has delivered the second album from Foxes In Fiction, download ‘Ontario Gothic’ here! It’s the work of New York-based artist Warren Hildebrand, who creates beautiful lo-fi pop songs. It’s a very emotional, introverted collection, written following the passing of Warren’s younger brother. It should appeal to dream pop fans however there are some experimental tunes on there too. The title track and ‘Shadow’s Song’ are brilliant!

Another Green World – ‘Disguise’

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.
