Vallens – ‘Devour’

Vallens - Devour

‘Devour’ is a smoky slice of dream pop that would sound at home on the Twin Peaks soundtrack. After all, the band take their name from David Lynch’s Dorothy Vallens (Blue Velvet). The song is lifted from Vallens‘ debut full length ‘Consent’ (out now through Hand Drawn Dracula). The Toronto foursome worked with producer Josh Korody (Beliefs) on the album, as well as Jeff Berner (of Psychic TV). Stream in full below…

The Pink Elephants – ‘Undone’

Ontario’s The Pink Elephants have had a busy year, they’ve given us the ‘Dream Chamber’ EP and already have a follow up on the way; ‘Temples In The Sky’. The purveyors of dreamy psych have also posted a fresh video for ‘Undone’ (which you can check out here). There’s loads to like about ‘Dream Chamber’, take a listen to their sedated and submerged sound below…

Slow Down Molasses – ‘Moon Queen’

‘Moon Queen’ is our first listen to Slow Down Molasses‘ third album ‘100% Sunshine’. The Canadian shoegaze act are following up last year’s ‘Burnt Black Cars‘ album with another record of reverb rockers, plus the five piece have a summer tour planned with spots alongside the Besnard Lakes and Built To Spill (dates below). ‘Moon Queen’ is a hard hitting ear bleeder with noise pop energy and charm, for fans of Swervedriver or Kindling. Noyes Records (home to We Need Secrets and Ringo Deathstarr) are releasing ‘100% Sunshine’ on vinyl, CD, and digital from September 2 (pre-order).
