On August 28 Static Daydream serve up their debut, self-titled album via Moon Sounds Records / Saint Marie Records (pre-order). Take a listen to the album cut ‘Until You’re Mine’, a dense squall of noise rockin’ chaos!

Presents For Sally – ‘Wishawaytoday’


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.

Mutes – ‘Holy Terror’


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’


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’.
