Echodrone have posted a fresh video for ‘Glacial Place’, taken from their latest album ‘Five’ (out now through Saint Marie Records). The San Francisco shoegazers have expanded their sound, adding three new members to the founding duo (of Eugene Suh and Brandon Dudley). The ten track release has been praised by the Big Takeover, DKFM, Louder Than War, Step On Mag and Arctic Drones. ‘Five’ was recorded remotely, with members sharing their parts via Dropbox before landing in the mix engineer’s lap. It’s a monster effort, stream it in full below or grab a copy here.

Manon Meurt – ‘Untitled’

Manon Meurt delivered an amazing self-titled EP last year. Some of you may have ‘Glowing Cityscape‘ stuck on repeat!? While the Czech shoegazers are yet to unveil any full length plans, we do have a fresh single called ‘Untitled‘. Manon Meurt (which translates to ‘Manon Dies’ in English), manage to craft effortless-sounding melodies with guy/girl vocals, ‘Untitled’ is another stunning effort.
