Cloakroom – ‘Further Out’

cloakroom-further-out-600x600

There’s a bunch of new releases to check out this week, Pinkyshinyultrablast’s ‘Everything Else Matters’ (streaming here), Wildhoney’s ‘Sleep Through It‘ AND Cloakroom‘s ‘Further Out’. It’s the Indiana trio’s debut album proper, so far we’ve heard ‘Starchild Skull‘ and ‘Dream Warden‘, now it’s time to stream, purchase or pillage straight from Bandcamp (courtesy of Run For Cover Records)! The album is no nonsense rock n’ roll, a live sounding analogue recording that captures Cloakroom’s bold and ballsy tunes. The bummed out vocals are a perfect match for the blown out, detuned guitars. Stream the rest below…

Title Fight – ‘Your Pain Is Mine Now’

title-fight-hyperview-artwork

There’s been loads of internet chatter surrounding Title Fight‘s new singles ‘Chlorine’ and ‘Rose Of Sharon’. The Pennsylvania four piece have given their post-hardcore sound a boost of reverb and tremolo, leaving many fans scratching their heads. Are they shoegaze now? Well no, but Title Fight are continuing down the path that Nothing’s ‘Guilty Of Everything’ blazed last year and (I imagine) they won’t be the last band to do so in 2015. Having said that, their new track ‘Your Pain Is Mine Now’ is something entirely different (and my preferred song of the three unveiled so far). It’s a gem. ‘Hyperview’ is shaping up to be an interesting (and divisive) album, pre-order via Anti (out February 3).

Bloom – ‘Rise’

bloom-rise-artwork

You could be forgiven for thinking Bloom‘s debut single ‘Rise’ is a lost classic from 1992! In name, sound and artwork. But, in the year that Ride make their live return, this San Antonio foursome do the nostalgic rock thing very well. So who can begrudge them!? Well, I’m sure there will be some, but good songwriting is good songwriting. Throw on some Chuck Taylor’s and stream the rest at Bandcamp.

Cheatahs – ‘Sunne’

cheatahs-sunne-ep

Cheatahs share the sunny title track from their forthcoming EP ‘Sunne’. The upbeat rocker is buoyed by jangly guitars, simple melodies and (from the sound of it), liberal use of the synthesizer pitch wheel! It could be a lost track from the British foursome’s debut album, a stand out in 2014. The ‘Sunne’ EP will be available through Wichita from February 23, with a launch show the following day at Power Lunches in London.

“Sunne is partly an attempt to encapsulate the feelings I had when I read (Hemingway’s) The Sun Also Rises, a book that had quite a profound effect on me.” says guitarist James Wignall (in the press release). “We ran the guitars through a very cheap (and slightly broken) recorder onto old cassette tape, which evokes a bittersweet end-of-day feeling, as if the sun were setting.”

A Place To Bury Strangers – ‘We’ve Come So Far’

Fader have premiered ‘We’ve Come So Far’, five fresh minutes of ear melting rock n’ roll courtesy of A Place To Bury Strangers. The New Yorkers show they can add a psych swagger to their trademark wall of noise. Pick it up on their new record ‘Transfixiation’ (out February 17 via Dead Oceans).

“The lyrics were written by themselves. The meaning is absolute truth. Life is super intense and fucked up so even accomplishing anything is a huge feat,” Singer/Guitarist Oliver Ackermann says (via Dead Oceans). “We should all be proud of that. When we have worked extremely hard for something for so long it is just amazing to look back on it all. Sometimes I just want to shake people for feeling useless. There is so much potential and amazing things going on all around. Help make something great for us all to enjoy. ‘We’ve Come So Far’ has an endless building feeling which mimics life.”
