Kigo – ‘Sunshine’

kigo-sunshine-cover

We knew it was coming but didn’t know when; Kigo released his new album ‘Sunshine‘ this week! The ten track LP features a few of last year’s singles (‘How Can I See’ and ‘Lust Lost’), together with fresh music recorded over the past three years. The Brisbane-based solo artist (Dwayne Pearce) has produced a large amount of work since first popping onto our radar in 2013 with the ‘Guilt’ EP. Kigo’s latest combines the shoegaze monsters he’s known for (‘Everyone Waits’ / ‘Can You’) with some ambient tangents (‘Some Other Place’ / ‘It Is’). ‘Sunshine’ doesn’t pull any punches, it’s an unforgiving collection of dissonant shoegazers, warped textures and sunken earbleeders. There’s some brilliant moments on the album, my fave being the closer ‘Sound And Score’.

Flyying Colours – ‘Mindfullness’

flyying-colours-tour-poster

In case you missed it, Flyying Colours have officially given us their debut full length ‘Mindfullness’ (out now via Club AC30). The Melbourne shoegazers cut their teeth with two solid EPs and a string of local shows (with a UK/European tour about to kick off). The album opener ‘It’s Tomorrow Now’ is a must listen, supported by the second single ‘Long Holiday’ and the title track. Flyying Colours strike a balance between the heights of their debut EP and the rockers of the ‘Roygbiv’ EP. It’s a relentless record that will be a crowd pleaser. With a fresh line-up in place (two new members), and plenty of new material to showcase on the road, the UK tour should be awesome. It’s hard to believe that Flyying Colours’ ‘Wavygravy’ debut was three years ago! *mind blown*
