Introducing Haiku Garden, a young shoegaze band from Slovenia, Ljubljana! Just last week the foursome delivered their debut EP ‘Waver’ (via Kapa Records). It features the lead single ‘Rosetta’ and the fantastic ‘Mercury’. It’s a really exciting (and unexpected) five tracker. Pick up the CD, cassette or digital here.

Wind Along The Coast – ‘Don’t Look Back / Another Life’

wind-along-the-coat-don't-look-back

Wind Along The Coast return with ‘Don’t Look Back / Another Life’; two progressive rockers with a catchy twee edge (download here). ‘Don’t Look Back’ is an upbeat noise popper whereas the b-side is a woozy epic, running almost eight minutes. The Russian trio has a handful of EPs under their belt, and since forming in 2013 have played shows alongside their native shoegazers Aerofall.

Voices From Deep Below – ‘Radiate’

voices-from-deep-below-this-place-will-raise-up-cover

Dale Humphries aka Voices From Deep Below has unleashed his fourth album ‘This Place Will Raise Up’. The British solo artist pushes the boundaries of pitch bending mayhem with wall of sound guitars and sunken vocals! ‘Radiate’ is by no means representative of the whole record, so jump into the full stream below.

Alpha Male – ‘Mono Focus’ [VIDEO]

Alpha Male have just posted their impressive new tune ‘Mono Focus’. The Danish noise-gazers dish up a crushing reverb rocker with a stadium-ready chorus. The trio has supported Cheatahs and Spectres this year, and have more new music on way. In the meantime, check out the lo-fi new video…

Nothing – ‘Tired Of Tomorrow’

Just in case you needed a reminder – Nothing’s new album ‘Tired Of Tomorrow’ is out this week via Relapse Records (May 13)! The whole thing can be streamed now via NPR. The Philly rock act has also posted a bunch of updates to their documentary series (as below). In fact, I think it’s fair to say that the promo machine is in overdrive with an online Nothing meme creator, Nothing Emojis, plus 15 tattoo shops are offering Nothing-themed tats on release day! I’m planning on having the “N” logo tattooed on my child’s forehead to mark the occasion. *grins* But seriously, the album stream is sounding solid. They’ve balanced the hard hitters with dreamy laid-back tracks that give the record much needed depth. Now judge for yourself…

Miniatures – ‘Honey’

miniatures-honey-cover

Miniatures have posted another track from their forthcoming debut album ‘Jessamines’. ‘Honey’ is a melodic shoegazer with feel good vibes! The opening reminded me a little of Smashing Pumpkins’ ‘Today’ before the vocals kicked in – and wow, brilliant vocals! The Melbourne-based quartet (by way of Christchurch) unveiled the first single ‘What You Want’ back in March, an equally impressive track. The album was originally expected this month, so the wait can’t be much longer.
