Gentlemen – ‘Duke Oddity’

GENTLEMEN - 'NIGHT REELS II'

‘Duke Oddity’ is a great way to spend three minutes, it’s the latest instrumental piece from London’s Gentlemen. The five piece formed in 2012 with members from the UK, Italy and Australia. Influenced by the progressive sounds of the 70s, Gentlemen retreated to a country cottage to record the ‘Night Reels II’ EP, available from February 25 through Week Of Wonders.

Fait – ‘Slow Glow’

FAIT - 'SLOW GLOW'

Multi-instrumentalist Elise Higgins (aka Fait) is currently working on her debut EP with producer Darren Lawson (MBV, White Lies). The Perth-based solo artist gave us ‘Koto‘ last June and recently followed it up with ‘Slow Glow‘. A mixture of dream pop, shoegaze and experimental sounds, ‘Slow Glow’ is like three songs in one, and they’re all good!

Russian Circles – ‘Deficit’

RUSSIAN CIRCLES - 'DEFICIT'

When it comes to post metal, I’m pretty clueless. But when it comes to Russian Circles, an exception must be made, ‘Deficit’ is just so damn awesome! The apocalyptic guitar tones work perfectly against one of the most impressive drum tracks I’ve heard this year – amazing work. Pick up Russian Circles new album ‘Memorial’ from October 29 through Sargent House.

Summer’s Kiss – ‘Summer’s Kiss’

SUMMER'S KISS - 'SUMMER'S KISS'

Summer’s Kiss has a fresh tune out this week. In fact, there’s three! The ambient / dream pop project from California has been crafting instrumental music since 2007. The self-titled release pairs airy pads with a jangly, delayed guitar line. While its not a downbeat affair, it’s still nice and chilled.
