tiny-fireflies-the-space-between

The Bilinda Butchers have crafted a spacey remix of the Tiny Fireflies ‘Melody’ from their latest record ‘The Space Between’ (via The Nerdist). The extended rework gives it the Bilinda Butchers dreamy touch, to be featured on the Japanese release (through Art Union). You can read Michal’s thoughts on the track right here.

DIIV – ‘Is The Is Are’

diiv-is-the-is-are

Captured Tracks delivered ‘Is The Is Are’ this week, the long-awaited second album by DIIV. So far the press has praised the record, but there’s also plenty of fans calling it “samey” and “bland” on Reddit. It was always going to be tough following up their amazing debut ‘Oshin’, so you best just decide for yourself! ‘Is The Is Are’ covers more ground but loses some subtlety and invention in the process. Nevertheless, it’s recommended listening.

Savage Sister – ‘Speechless’

savage-sister-speechless

Savage Sister is known for their densely textured dream pop and indulgence in never ending reverb! Last year the Chicago outfit shared the ‘Cocoon’ single and this week dropped their latest full length ‘Speechless’ (available here)! The trio harken back to late 80s dream pop with punchy drums, and somewhat elusive compositions with heavenly vocals. Savage Sister’s Michael Tenzer has also been busy of late with the side projects Eyes Behind The Veil and Lazy Legs.

Sound of Ceres – ‘Hand Of Winter’

sounds-of-ceres-nostalgia-for-infinity

Former Candy Claws band mates Karen and Ryan Hover have announced a new project called Sound Of Ceres that includes members of The Drums and Apples In Stereo. It’s crazy to think it’s been almost three years since Candy Claws gave us their otherworldly album ‘Ceres And Calypso In The Deep Time’! Needless to say, it’s fantastic to have new music from the Colorado pair. ‘Hand Of Winter’ is grandiose, moody and cinematic. There’s big things ahead on March 4 when Sound Of Ceres deliver their debut full length ‘Nostalgia For Infinity’ through Joyful Noise Recordings. Beautiful artwork too!

Dear Tracks – ‘Soft Dreams’ [Premiere]

dear tracks-soft dreams

Dear Tracks return with the second single from their forthcoming EP ‘Soft Dreams’, available from February 26 (pre-order via Track And Field Records / Furious Hooves: mint vinyl / violet vinyl / or cassette here)! The Michigan-based quartet impressed with their debut single ‘Wildflower’ in early 2015, and assert their sound with the forthcoming EP. The title track is a little more sunny and upbeat than the lead single ‘All The Outs Are Free’. It blends lo-fi jangle pop, surf and dream pop into a loveable, swooning creation (for fans of Beach Fossils, DIIV, or Day Wave). You can catch Dear Tracks live at Savannah Stopover on March 12 (at the Graveface Records / Furious Hooves showcase). A full tour update is coming soon, so hit up deartracksband.com for more details.

the morelings-no sign

The Morelings present the final visual installment from their debut EP ‘No Sign’ (available now). The Philadelphia dream-pop duo have teamed up with director Bob Sweeney to create a 1940s/50s inspired video featuring layered images of vocalist/bassist Kedra Caroline and guitarist Mathew William. A fitting swan song for the EP and a reminder that 2016 holds much more for The Morelings; a debut full length produced by Jeff Zeigler (Nothing / The War On Drugs / A Sunny Day In Glasgow). More soon!
