Slow Down Molasses – ‘Moon Queen’

slow down molasses-moon queen

‘Moon Queen’ is our first listen to Slow Down Molasses‘ third album ‘100% Sunshine’. The Canadian shoegaze act are following up last year’s ‘Burnt Black Cars‘ album with another record of reverb rockers, plus the five piece have a summer tour planned with spots alongside the Besnard Lakes and Built To Spill (dates below). ‘Moon Queen’ is a hard hitting ear bleeder with noise pop energy and charm, for fans of Swervedriver or Kindling. Noyes Records (home to We Need Secrets and Ringo Deathstarr) are releasing ‘100% Sunshine’ on vinyl, CD, and digital from September 2 (pre-order).

Preoccupations – ‘Degraded’

preoccupations-album-cover

Fans of stormy post punk should mark September 16 in their diary because Preoccupations are on their way. ‘Degraded’ is the second single (following ‘Anxiety’) from their forthcoming LP, it’s dripping with nostalgia; the lyrical hopelessness is backed by a scratchy 80s sound that’s bound to draw some obvious comparisons. It needs more reverb *grin* other than that I’m sold! The Preoccupations self-titled album will be available from Inertia/Jagjaguwar.

Newmoon – ‘Head Of Stone’

newmoon-space

Belgium reverb rockers Newmoon serve up ‘Head Of Stone’, the lead single from their forthcoming debut album ‘Space’. The quintet released their first EP shortly after forming in 2013, going on to tour Europe with Cloakroom and Nothing (among others). Influenced by The Jesus & Mary Chain, Sunn o))) and Slowdive, Newmoon produce a widescreen sound with crossover appeal. ‘Head Of Stone’ gets under the skin with its moody tone and driving melody. ‘Space’ is out October 14 via Pias (Belgium) and Mayfly Records (USA).

Fugleflugten – ‘Aftenpragtstjerne’

AFTENPRAGTSTJERNE

Fugleflugten have unveiled their debut EP ‘Aftenpragtstjerne’, five tracks of reverb-hungry post punk. The Danish quartet sing in their native tongue, and brandish progressive, widescreen rockers with loads of presence. Fugleflugten first turned heads with the emotive lead single ‘Ensom Galakse’. Thankfully, the rest of the EP is equally striking, stream in full below…
