Airiel – New Album Preview


Chicago shoegaze vets Airiel will deliver a new LP later this year! The band have posted a “rough mix” of four songs from the album, and it’s sounding lovely. Hard to believe it’s been three years since the foursome (founded by Jeremy Wrenn in ’97) released the ‘Kid Games’ EP – so its welcome news. There’s also a refreshed ‘Winks & Kisses’ vinyl set on the way with new remixes (including this).

No Joy – ‘Hollywood Teeth’


No Joy have come a long way since the lo-fi haze of ‘Ghost Blonde’, the Canadian quartet have posted their latest track ‘Hollywood Teeth’ via Billboard. Needless to say, they’re sounding as awesome as ever. Not to forget the sparkle that producer Jorge Elbrecht adds to No Joy’s sound, evident since 2013’s much loved ‘Wait To Pleasure’ LP. ‘More Faithful’ is out June 9 via Mexican Summer.

Drowse – ‘Melt’


Experimental solo artist Kyle Bates (aka Drowse) is set to deliver his latest album ‘Soon Asleep’ on June 9 via APNEICVOID. The Portland music maker blends drone, noise n’ shoegaze influences into disturbing yet pretty cinematic pieces. ‘Melt’ is a dynamic and interesting listen but is bound to divide listeners. It’s the kind of tune you’re either going to appreciate or not, no fence sitters! Lap it up below…

Everyone But Me – ‘Isn’t Far’


Everyone But Me released their debut EP this week, and it’s worth checking out. The five track collection is full of epic shoegaze anthems with loads of charm. The Ohio-based duo (Nick Bain and Jason Grady) formed in 2013, and have been polishing these tunes for the past year. Their efforts have paid off, thumbs up!
