Salt Rush with Mark Peters – ‘Carry On’

salt-rush-with-mark-peters

‘Carry On’ is our first taste of Salt Rush with Mark Peters, a fresh project blending blissed out dream pop and ambient electronica. It’s the work of composer Matthew Linley (Gilbert, Engineers), singer Maud Waret, and Engineers frontman/guitarist Mark Peters. If you’re a fan of ethereal daydreamers, this one’s for you! The album will be available through Pedigree Cuts (Ulrich Schnauss/Jonas Munk) from June 24, however there’s an earlier Juno exclusive release from June 10.

New Yorkers Dead Leaf Echo and The Harrow have teamed up for a split single, out May 13 on Moon Sounds Records! ‘Child.glass.heart’ is the a-side from Dead Leaf Echo, their latest swooning dream pop creation. Whereas The Harrow’s ‘Dirty Minds’ is a dark post-punk tune with an 80s feel, both lathered in reverb! Unfortunately the short-run vinyl is already sold out but digital is available here.

Moon Loves Honey – ‘Balloon’ [Video Premiere]

moon-loves-honey-apart-cover

Moon Loves Honey delivered their impressive six-track debut ‘Apart’ earlier this year on Tapetown Records. It’s picked up airplay in the USA and in Europe, with praise from Drowned In Sound, Step On Magazine and Sound Of Aarhus. This week the Danish dreamgazers share the first look at the ‘Balloon’ video. Unlike traditional clips, this one is like moving wallpaper with kaleidoscopic visuals that are built to hypnotize. I recommend jumping into the ‘Apart’ stream below if you haven’t yet – for fans of Dråpe, Panda Panda or Snøskred.

Miserable – ‘Uncontrollable’ [LP Stream]

miserable-uncontrollable

Stream the new full length ‘Uncontrollable’ by Miserable (out this week via The Native Sound)! The former Whirr vocalist (Kristina Esfandiari) is at her best, it’s a dark and emotional trip. Spin premiered the record, calling it “a nine-track work of dizzying lo-fi sadgaze”. It’s the kinda album you need to be in the mood for to fully appreciate, but impressive regardless.

Hideous Towns – ‘Don’t Forget / Wake Us’

hideous-towns-dont-forget

Hideous Towns have dished up a beautiful double a-side with ‘Don’t Forget / Wake Us’ (via Lost And Lonesome)! The Melbourne foursome indulge in reverb and delay on the new waver ‘Don’t Forget’ and the stunning dream popper ‘Wake Us’. As the presser states, the latter “draws inspiration from Irving Stone’s Vincent Van Gogh biography Lust For Life. In the song, Alana imagines the life of Van Gogh’s prostitute girlfriend Christine following the couple’s break-up”. Everything Hideous Towns have given us has been great, can’t wait for their debut album (expected late this year).
