Viscous Liquid – ‘Songs For Jealous Lovers’

viscous liquid-songs for jealous lovers-artwork-cover

Earlier this year we had a listen to Viscous Liquid’s stellar song ‘When I See You‘ in the lead up to an EP release. In case you missed it, the UK-based solo artist (Rhys Williams) has now delivered ‘Songs For Jealous Lovers‘ and it’s a great listen for fans of shoegaze or lo-fi surf pop. Head over to Bandcamp for a download if it lifts your skirt!

The Enters – ‘Small Town Love’

London shoegazers The Enters have spent the past few years gigging around the UK and Europe, sharing the stage with The Telescopes, Laetitia Sadier (Stereolab), The Fauns and Spotlight Kid. Recently the trio teamed up with producer Rory Attwell to record their latest EP at Lightship95. The studio built on a boat (pics)! The result is ‘Small Town Love’, an impressive collection of dense noise pop (that’s been making the internet rounds this week). A vinyl announcement is expected before too long.

Colours – ‘My Memory Is A Maze’

COLOURS - 'YOU CAN'T SEE ME'

Father/Daughter Records has delivered the double A-side single from Colours. The London-based Aussie (Tom Crandles) gave us the lead tune ‘You Can’t See Me‘ last month and now we have ‘My Memory Is A Maze’. Both tracks are great and point to an exciting debut full length (expected later this year).

Aerofall – ‘Aerofall’

aerofall-album

Aerofall delivered their self-titled album this month via Hands And Moment and it’s well worth checking out. The Russian shoegaze outfit already impressed with ‘Alien Dance’ and ‘Fear For Everyone‘, thankfully the rest of the record doesn’t disappoint. The five piece don’t rely on face melting noise or in-your-face vocal melodies. That’s not to say there’s not a little of both, but instead the album is a sum of parts. The key being strong song writing which makes ‘Aerofall’ an effortless sounding record. ¬†Perhaps a few curve balls could have been added to mix it up, but that’s a small complaint. Some select album cuts are available to stream below…

Pink Elephants – ‘She Took Off Her Dress’ [EP]

pink elephants-she took off her dress ep-artwork

Bradley Coy aka Pink Elephants has spent the past few months posting demo recordings on Soundcloud, leading up to the release of his second EP ‘She Took Off Her Dress’ (download). The San Diego native delves into a variety of lo-fi genres, but generally with an ambient dash of psych, noise or shoegaze. His latest is a little less chaotic than the self-titled debut. Opener ‘Silhouettes’ is perhaps the cleanest sounding song we’ve heard of his yet. However EP cut ‘I’m Okay’ is a favourite, a dense mix of colliding ideas.

Mutes – ‘M.P.D.G’

mutes-mpdg-artwork-cover

Birmingham solo act Mutes (known for his pedal dancing, loop making ways) is re-releasing his debut EP on May 7 via One Note Forever (pre-order). A short run of UK dates have been announced in support. The lovely lead single ‘M.P.D.G’ is a mix of jangle pop and shoegaze, crafted from the bedroom. The densely layered track is propelled by off timed guitar strums and sunken vocals with just a tambourine to keep time. Pick up a free download courtesy of One Note if it scrambles your eggs!

White Caves – ‘Dig’

white caves-dig-artwork-cover-low-res

More superb music out of Melbourne – I’m not sure what drugs they’re taking down south but I want in! ‘Dig’ is taken from White Caves forthcoming 7inch (order here for a May 7 release), or download a digital copy now, as mixed by Scott Horscroft (Silverchair, The Presets). White Caves is the work of Darren Cordeux, who began writing songs for the project in 2012 “as a way of coping with his recurring insomnia”. Inspired by Spiritualized, Ride and My Bloody Valentine, Darren has crafted rock anthems with BIG choruses and a classic flavour. Sydney locals can catch the launch at Brighton Up Bar on April 16 (details). If you’re hungry for more, take a listen to the self-titled EP from last October. Highly recommended.
