Heaven – ‘Falling Hearts’

Brooklyn psych/shoegaze act Heaven have announced their sophomore album ‘All Love Is Blue’, which will be in our hands on March 2 (preorder the vinyl from Little Cloud Records). Take a look at the lead video below, together with the album cut ‘Falling Hearts’. Singer and guitarist Matt Sumrow and drummer Mikey Jones decided to start the band after touring with Ambulance LTD, The Comas and Swervedriver. The trio have come along way since their 2013 debut, their latest is a confident step forward. Heaven worked with engineer Albert DiFiore (Caveman, Sinkane, Beck) and mixer Al Carlson (Zola Jesus, Widowspeak) on the album, the dreamy result is well worth your minutes.

Mute Swan – ‘Just Like Weeds’

‘Just Like Weeds’ heads off the jangly psych oddity that is Mute Swan‘s ‘Ultraviolet’ EP (out September 30). The foursome have emerged from a garage in Tucson’s west side with five bold new songs. Mute Swan have already been praised by The Fader and Impose, hear more at Bandcamp.

Dead Gaze – ‘Wait For Nothing’

dead gaze-easy travels

Dead Gaze has returned! The acid-drenched creations of Mississippi’s R. Cole Furlow are sounding as warped as ever. ‘Wait For Nothing’ is a ripping cut from his latest full length ‘Easy Travels’ (out this week through Ernest Jenning Record Co). It follows the psych leaning lead single ‘Constantly Happy’, and heads an album of eclectic gems. Dead Gaze as always, doesn’t disappoint.

The Laurels – ‘Reentry’

the-laurels-reentry

The Laurels return with a warbling, space rocking, acid tinged oddity called ‘Reentry’! Since releasing their debut album ‘Plains’ in 2012, the Sydney-based foursome “have not spent the past four years sitting in their lounge room punching cones…” *cough* …instead they’ve kept busy writing and recording their second LP. The Laurels have also recruited Jasper Fenton in the wake of Kate Wilson’s departure. ‘Reentry’ picks from their shoegaze/psych origins but it’s a much more eclectic and adventurous sound than we heard on ‘Plains’, which is no doubt a good thing! ‘Sonicology’ is out October 14 via Rice Is Nice (pre-order). Side note, if you’ve never heard their ‘Mesozoic’ EP (jump on that here)!
