blindness-plastic-art

Here’s an exclusive listen to ‘Wrapped In Plastic’, the debut album from Blindness. It’s out today (on digital, disc and vinyl) through Saint Marie Records. The London-based trio craft relentless ass kickers with industrial swagger and noise rock intensity! Lead tracks ‘Confessions’ and ‘Serves Me Right’ are a testament to that. The group features veteran guitarist Debbie Smith (formerly of Curve, Echobelly and Snowpony), together with bassist Emma Quick and programmer/singer Beth Rettig. Brits can catch the album launch this Sunday (details at FB).

Sleepy – ‘The Ride Up’

sleepy-ep

‘The Ride Up’ is a fuzz filled, feel good rocker from Sleepy‘s forthcoming debut EP. The Aussie trio rebirth 90s nostalgia in a super fun way, with a head nod to classic acts like Teengage Fanclub, Smudge, and Redd Kross. It follows last year’s ‘Hit And Run’ 7inch and should put a smile on your face! There’s also fresh fuzzy singles from Major Leagues and Yuck to check out this week. \m/

Presents For Sally – ‘Wishawaytoday’

presents-for-sally-wishawaytoday-artwork

Presents For Sally deliver ‘Wishawaytoday‘, a fresh 7inch single that precedes the release of their new album ‘Colours & Changes’ (out later this year via Saint Marie Records). ‘Wishawaytoday’ is a sunny rocker with a 90s twee feel and a noisy edge. The 7inch is backed by the b-side ‘Hits Like Kisses’ which begins like a lullaby, and ends with a white hot, wall of sound! Presents For Sally formed in the late noughties and have since been praised by BBC Radio 1, Drowned In Sound, XFM and The Sound Of Confusion.

Hyla – ‘Fever Calls Late’

Today Perth rock act Hyla delivered their second EP ‘Fever Calls Late’, a well balanced collection of psych n’ shoegaze. Since the release of their debut single ‘Sides/Remedy’ last year, the foursome have picked up airplay (FBi, Triple J), as well as international praise. In a short space of time Hyla have matured into a well rounded band, capable of dizzying rock numbers (‘The Thousands’ / ‘Come Find Us’), trippy psych (‘Fever Calls Late’), as well as dreamy lo-fi tunes (‘Wiser Way’). Grab a download here or stream in full below.
