Lazy Legs – ‘Chain Of Pink’

lazy-legs-chain-of-pink

Lazy Legs do reverse reverb right on their latest single ‘Chain Of Pink’, taken from their forthcoming EP (of the same name). The song arrives on the heels of last month’s ‘Soft Skull’, which is equally impressive. Given that their ‘Visiondeath‘ album only arrived in July, it’s fair to say that 2016 has been huge for the trio. If there was an award for breakout shoegaze artist of the year, I’d nominate these guys! Lazy Legs’ ‘Chain Of Pink’ EP will be available via Wild Patterns from December 16 (all proceeds go to Planned Parenthood, Sierra Club and the ACLU).

Burning House – ‘Mercurial’

burning-house-mercurial

Southampton shoegazers Burning House have dropped their latest anthem ‘Mercurial’; a crowd pleaser that works up to a suitably swoony end. Earlier in the year we heard Burning House’s ‘If You Won’t‘ (from their upcoming ‘Anthropocene’ LP). BUT… I believe an evolution has occurred since then and plans are now directed toward an EP called ‘Tracer’. Whatever happens, it’s sounding like its headed in the right direction.

Purs – ‘Girl In Love’

purs-girls-in-love

‘Girl In Love’ is a fun shoegaze/punk/psych crossover tune; courtesy of North London’s Purs (as premiered by Silent Radio). The group formed from the solo work of guitarist Andy Becker, who is joined by Serra Petale (guitar/vocals), Kris Proshovski (guitar), Mattias Bhatt (drums), and Mandi Goodier on bass. Purs made their first appearance on the ‘Hide And Psych’ comp with a cover of Autolux’s ‘Here Comes Everybody’; also worth a listen. Blak Hand Records are hitting the The Independent Label Market at Old Spitalfields Markets this weekend with a handful of limited transparent tapes – get involved Londoners! \m/

FOREVR – ‘Petrichor’

forevr-petrichor

Brissy shoegazers FOREVR drop new single ‘Petrichor‘! And wow, the foursome have switched up their tremolo riding ways for a brooding dose of industrial electronica. Plus there’s a fresh cover of The Jesus & Mary Chain’s ‘You Trip Me Up’ from the ‘Tym Records Presents Psychocandy’ compilation. Meanwhile FOREVR kick off their tour this week with the Street Street Band (details).

Versus People – ‘Be Away’ EP

versus-people-be-away-artwork

Swiss shoegazers Versus People return with their latest five track release ‘Be Away’ (download). The foursome posted the title track video to match; a dense and dissonant ode to escape. If you’re a fan of sedate, blissed out records then this is for you. It’s relentlessly submerged, lo-fi and warped throughout. ‘Sunflyers’ is perhaps the most upbeat of the lot. Though I particularly like the wall of sound effect they achieve midway through their cover of Air’s ‘Dead Bodies’.

Mosaicz – ‘Physic’

mosaicz-physic

Mosaicz dropped their latest tune ‘Physic’ earlier this month; a lo-fi wall of noise from their impending EP/LP (expected next year). The Geelong-based trio are a little bit psych, and a little shoegaze. ‘Physic’ is a washed out slow burner, with sunken vocals and a groovy, overblown feel to it. This is the third song Mosaicz have posted since 2015’s epic ‘Backwards’. Pick it up at Bandcamp.
