Denver, Colorado – ‘Eternal Love // Usual Fog’ [Premiere]

denver-colorado-eternal love-usual fog

Jump into the first public stream of Denver, Colorado’s impressive debut single ‘Eternal Love // Usual Fog‘. Denver, Colorado is a solo project backed by a music collective; led by Sweden’s Simeon Pappinen Hillert (a touring sound engineer with acts including Niki & the Dove, Elliphant and School ’94). The Gothenburg-based project plan to release ‘Eternal Love // Usual Fog’ on their forthcoming EP ‘…and it still keeps on rising’ (due later this year). The wonky tune was “inspired by foggy nights and shoegaze tunes echoing over the sea,” a mix of lo-fi pop and bittersweet melodies. There’s some generous reverb in there too! It reminds me a little of early Mercury Rev, and has me very excited to hear what comes next.

Fait – ‘Reverie’ [‘Sonder’ EP]


Amazing surprise from Fait this week; she’s released her new single ‘Reverie’ and a four track EP called ‘Sonder’! The Aussie solo artist (Elise Higgins) was joined in the studio by bassist Rob Stephens and her long-time producer Darren Lawson (My Bloody Valentine, White Lies). ‘Reverie’ is a lush instrumental track with hypnotic bells and strings set over a breakbeat. It’s another stunner, but certainly different from previous efforts. It leads into the dissonant ‘Siren Song’, a progressive ambient piece with loads of pitch bending goodness. It’s a little less dark than her 2014 debut ‘Atmosphere’, but has the same cinematic scope. ‘Sonder’ is a brilliant listen, Fait is all class once again! Australian fans can catch her live on the east coast next month (dates below). ‘Sonder’ is available now through Inertia.

Suburban Living – ‘Come True’

suburban living-almost paradise

Philadelphia’s Suburban Living has announced their sophomore album ‘Almost Paradise’ with the lead single ‘Come True’. The four piece have signed with 6131 Records and will release the LP on October 7. ‘Come True’ extends their lo-fi bedroom pop sound with the help of producer Jeff Ziegler (The War On Drugs, Kurt Vile, Nothing). This should please fans of their 2015 debut, and earn them some new ones.

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…
