Fever Dream – ‘Moyamoya’

fever-dream-moyamoya

Fever Dream‘s debut LP ‘Moyamoya’ is out now via Club AC30. The London-based act serve up fuzz filled rockers, and frenetic noise pop with a post-punk edge (stream via Beat). The lead singles ‘Serotonin Hit’ and ‘Nightcrawling’ are loads of fun, with bold choruses, poppy vocals and wall of sound distortion. The trio (drummer Cat Loye, bassist Sarah Lippett and guitarist/vocalist Adey Fleet) have been making music together since 2010, releasing an EP in 2012 before writing their full length.

‘Moyamoya’ doesn’t settle for any one genre. Sure it’s a rock record, but it doesn’t attempt to fit in. This is not a purist experience, which is a positive because it doesn’t stick to a formula. There’s shades of noise pop/shoegaze in ‘Sleep TV’ and ‘Serotonin Hit’, a punk rock pace in ‘Flux’ and ‘Watch You Sleep’. But a catchy indie rock feel prevails, such as ‘They Live’, ‘Dance Forever’ and ‘Vapours’. The album sounds like it was written for the stage. ‘Moyamoya’ doesn’t rely on studio trickery or high gloss, it’s a band rockin’ out in a room. Simple, no fuss, rock n’ roll.

The two singles are definite highlights, the remaining album cuts are a little less tightly composed but could be compared to The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, Yuck or early Crocodiles. In truth, the midsection laboured a little for me before ‘Sleep TV’ swept in. It’s a fantastic rocker with a natural feel, and a killer ending. ‘Flux’ and ‘Vapours’ round out the ten track album with relentless fashion, both songs are strong entries. Fever Dream find their feet on ‘Moyamoya’, and I imagine it will sound amazing on tour. A solid debut effort.

Fever Dream – ‘Serotonin Hit’

Here’s a fresh blast of noise pop from Fever Dream‘s forthcoming debut album ‘Moyamoya’, out April 27 through the dependable Club AC30! The London-based trio go all out on ‘Serotonin Hit’, it packs the same kind of energy and melody that made Ringo Deathstarr so loveable! Influenced by alt rock, post punk and shoegaze classics, Fever Dream define themselves more by their pop hooks and noise rather than genre trademarks. Looking forward to hearing the rest next month.

Pinkshinyultrablast – ‘Everything Else Matters’

pinkshinyultrablast-artwork

Pinkshinyultrablast have delivered their debut LP ‘Everything Else Matters’ featuring the singles ‘Umi’ and ‘Holy Forest’. Following our chat last month, it’s time to take a closer look at the album (streaming via Noisey). On first listen, I was surprised by the album. After all, the lead singles showcase Pinkshiny’s angelic dream pop melodies and the beauty of Lyubov’s voice. The rest of ‘Everything Else Matters’ is another beast entirely, and that’s not a bad thing. It’s got depth, a lot of ground is covered in just eight songs.

Opener ‘Wish We Were’ gets the LP off to a progressive start, a seven minute epic that begins with ambient anticipation before transitioning to a post punk gallop. After repeated listens, it becomes clear that the more abstract, less structured songs are amongst the strongest. They divide the more “traditional” pop songs up, sitting at track 1, 4 (‘Metamorphosis’) and 8 (‘Marigold’). And wow, ‘Marigold’ is the knock out punch, an ambitious and stunning track with cinematic scope. It’s final moments ring out for minutes, a perfect end.

The collaborative approach Pinkyshinyultrablast take with their songs gives each song a complexity. It’s hard to predict, and certainly doesn’t fit neatly into any genre. I’m just glad they were happy to turn up the reverb, it sounds big! If you’ve read this far, I doubt you need convincing. ‘Everything Else Matters’ is a fantastic record and a brilliant start to 2015. Highly recommended. Pick it up via Club AC30 (UK), Shelflife (USA) or Vinyl Junkie (Japan).
