Nite Fields – ‘You I Never Knew’


The always impressive Nite Fields will deliver their debut LP ‘Depersonalisation’ on February 2 via felte. The post punk quartet originally hail from Brisbane, and tap into a classic Australian sound on their new single ‘You I Never Knew’. The 80s styled jangle popper recalls The Church or The Go-Betweens at their best. This is the first time Nite Fields have handed over production duties to a third party, the lucky man being Nigel Lee-Yang of HTRK. It’ll be really interesting to see what else ‘Depersonalisation’ has to offer. Pre-sales are available now.

Best Friend – ‘Swallow’ [Premiere]


Best Friend release their new single ‘Swallow‘ today (with the b-side ‘Still There’), and here’s our first listen! The Tennessee four piece blend jangle and dream pop (for fans of DIIV, Beach House and Wild Nothing). ‘Swallow’ “is about anxiety, and feeling trapped in your own body, as well as getting older. Which only contributes to the anxiety I guess,” writes singer/guitarist Peter McCarville. The introverted feel and theme is contrasted by a breezy melody – it’s a beautiful tune! The band released their full length ‘Division‘ earlier this year, also worth a listen.

Dear Tracks – ‘Connectivity’

dear tracks-connectivity-artwork

Meet Dear Tracks, a new dream pop group out of Grand Rapids, Michigan. To be fair it’s hard to know exactly what the four piece will grow into but if their debut ‘Connectivity’ is any indication, it’ll be a bright future! It’s a reverb swamped, jangle popper with loads of charm (grab a free download). Dear Tracks just played their first show with Literature over the weekend at a Slumberland Records showcase, so they’re in good company!

Daoda – ‘Feel For You’


Daoda is the work of Mike Sacchetti, a Philly-based solo artist who began releasing music as Bad News Bears almost a decade ago. His latest work has a lot in common with the early Captured Tracks roster. The lo-fi, bedroom pop feel is a perfect match for his raw and honest brand of songwriting. Take a listen to ‘Feel For You’ (free download) and check out Mike’s more recent work here.
