Mutes – ‘Holy Terror’

mutes-starvation-age

Mutes ‘Holy Terror’ is a reverb rocker that comes out swinging before drifting into a dream state half way through. It’s a raw, uncompromising introduction to their second EP ‘Starvation Age’ (which is out next week, June 29). The UK quartet began as a solo project and spawned a self-titled EP last May. The upcoming five track collection ranges from rock to ambient and maintains the loveable, lo-fi aesthetic of their debut. ‘Starvation Age’ is available for pre-order (on digital or cassette) via One Note Forever.

Loop – ‘Precession’

loop-array-1

British rock veterans Loop have unveiled their first new music in twenty five years! ‘Precession’ is the lead single from their new EP ‘Array 1′ (which is now streaming over at Noisey). The former duo (is now a trio) and is touring the UK this month, grab a pre-order via ATP. Loop combined space rock and psych elements, and due to their indulgence in effects pedals, were embraced by the burgeoning shoegaze community (at the time), namely their 1990 classic ‘A Gilded Eternity’.

Future – ‘Horizons’

Requiem pour un Twister presents ‘Horizons’, the debut full length from Future. The French trio (Brice Delourmel, Pauline La Chaceray and Venera 4’s Yann Canévet) craft dark and brutal songs that blur the line between noise rock, coldwave, post punk and shoegaze. The title track ‘Horizons’ plays out like a combination of Soft Moon and A Place To Bury Strangers – this is not for the feint hearted! Since forming in 2012 Future have released a number of singles and the ‘Abyss’ EP, and have played shows alongside Crocodiles, AVGVST and KVB. ‘Horizons’ is a chaotic collection that just doesn’t let up, it’s bound to please existing fans and should win them some new ones. ‘Horizons’ is available now on digital or vinyl.

ColoreSantos – ‘Forest’

COLORESANTOS-FOREST’

Fantastic new psych pop from Santiago, Chile! ‘Forest’ is a jangly gem from a newly formed quintet called ColoreSantos. There’s loads packed into this tune, the latter half really impresses, (particularly the bendy instrumental break)! If you’re keen for more, check out their first demo ‘Toy’ over at Soundcloud.

On June 2 Eternal Summers will release their new album ‘Gold And Stone’ via Kanine Records. The Virginia trio begin proceedings with the indie rocker ‘Together Or Alone’. The fantastic video was directed by Japhy Riddle, a stop-motion animation guru. The single isn’t a big departure for Eternal Summers, but it also doesn’t disappoint, looking forward to hearing more this June.
