Pia Fraus – ‘Autumn Winds’


After eight years Pia Fraus have broken their silence with the new single ‘Autumn Winds‘. It’s a brilliant surprise from the Tallinn-based dream pop vets. Only a few months back the quintet unveiled their catalogue on vinyl (many for the first time) and now this! Best of all, ‘Autumn Winds’ confirms a fresh album is on the way (expected 2017 via Seksound). In the meantime, jump into ‘Autumn Winds’; which combines off-kilter psych sounds, otherworldly vocal harmonies and a super pretty chorus. The combination of Rein and Eve’s voice is just magic.

Pastel Dream – ‘Pastel Dream’


Caitlyn Whitfield fronts Pastel Dream; a five piece dream pop outfit out of California. Fans of lo-fi jangle/dream pop should lap up their debut self-titled EP. Its a short introduction (at four tracks), but it’s a promising start nonetheless. Name your price at Bandcamp.

Hope Sandoval & The Warm Inventions – ‘Until the Hunter’


Hope Sandoval and The Warm Inventions return with their third album ‘Until The Hunter’ (featuring the lead single ‘Let Me Get There’ with Kurt Vile). The album is an expectedly solid emotional trip; seven years in the making. It’s good to see that the collab between Mazzy Star’s Hope Sandoval and My Bloody Valentine’s Colm Ó Cíosóig is still producing (even though their respective bands have been back in action). ‘Until The Hunter’ is a moody listen (and you really need to be in the right one to appreciate it). Personally, I enjoyed it as much as their 2001 debut ‘Bavarian Fruit Bread’. Which admittedly, I only properly indulged in recently. Dream pop doesn’t get much classier and thoughtful than this. Pick up the record via Tendril Tales (digital / physical).
