Single Lash – ‘Under’ [Premiere]

single-lash-artwork

Single Lash are hard to pin down, the Austin outfit are part 80s post punk, part 90s gaziness, but always drenched in spacious reverb! The trio features Colin Foster and Neil Lord (of Future Museums), together with front man Nicolas Nadeau (of Slow Pulse). On April 7 they deliver their self-titled album through Mirror Universe Tapes (on digital & cassette). Take a listen to the first public stream of the album cut ‘Under’, which follows ‘Bitemarks’ (as featured on Gimme Tinnitus). It’s shaping up to be a great record!

Megawave – ‘NS1′

Ohio newcomers Megawave have posted their debut four track EP featuring ‘NS1′. The four piece have a raw n’ ready sound (influenced by Dinosaur Jr, Ride and Swervedriver). It’s always refreshing to hear music that doesn’t concern itself with perfect pitch or robotic time keeping, instead the EP has loads of loveable rough edges. Plus they’ve got a band name fit for a transformer! Actually… that was Soundwave right? The one with the cassette player chest – off topic! Grab the EP here.

Stella – ‘Old World’

Here’s an album from late last year that you may have missed – I know I did. It’s the beautifully crafted debut full length from Indiana reverb rockers Stella. ‘Old World’ is just a taste of the diverse record, with touches of shoegaze, indie and drone. The ten track release is available now through Rebore Records.

Talkie Walkie – ‘Banshee’

French newcomers Talkie Walkie release their impressive debut single today via Freemount Records. I don’t recommend watching the ‘Banshee’ video with a cup of tea, because you’re likely to spit it at your screen! Side note, the video dancer busting moves at 1:39 made my day. Talkie Walkie will release a self-titled album later this year, no doubt with more noise pop gems like this one.

Marriages – ‘Skin’ / ‘Less Than’

Emma Ruth Rundle, Greg Burns (Red Sparowes) and Andrew Clinco (Drab Majesty) are Marriages. The L.A.-based trio are set to unleash their debut album ‘Salome’ on April 7 via Sargent House (pre-sale). The moody alt rockers ‘Skin’ and ‘Less Than’ are the first public tracks. It’s not your regular SBWR material but explosive stuff! Amazing musicianship and production.
