The Bilinda Butchers Feat. Smany – ‘Sentimental Girl’s Violent Joke’ (Number Girl Cover)

Sentimental-Girls-Violent-Joke-ft.-Smany-(Number-Girl-Cover)

The Bilinda Butchers are back! The San Fran trio have covered ‘Sentimental Girl’s Violent Joke’ by Number Girl, and it’s out now via their own label Zoom Lens. The dream house track features guest vocalist Smany who continues The Bilinda Butchers Japanese-flavoured sound (in unpredictable fashion)! Always great, and always full of character. It’s the first new music from The Bilinda Butchers since their 2014 LP ‘Heaven’, and arrives following their North American tour with Craft Spells.

Late Night Hysterics – ‘Moondance’

late-night-hysterics-moondance

Time to finish off the week with a jaw dropping new single from Late Night Hysterics. ‘Moondance’ is a hazy electronic creation that sits somewhere between Ulrich Schnauss and Boards Of Canada. Cinematic and slow moving, this is utterly compelling listening! The Western Australian five piece are launching the single (through Blue Grey Pink) at The Astor Lounge (Perth) on April 5.

Bizarre – ‘Vectors’

bizarre-cafe-de-flor

And now for something completely different! Seksound are re-issuing Bizarre’s 1996 tape ‘Cafe De Flor‘ (on digital, and for the first time on vinyl). It’s the second album from the band, who are considered to be one of the first shoegaze bands from Estonia! ‘Vectors’ is just a taste, the rest of the album is quite a trip! A mix of experimental electronica, world music and shoegaze.

Dead Sea – ‘Keep It High / Rain’ [EP 1]

dead-sea-band

Hands up if you remember Dead Sea‘s stellar debut single ‘Before We Die’? The cheaters can check out the youtube link below! This week the French four piece posted two new tracks from their first EP, ‘Keep It High’ and ‘Rain’. It marks a clear departure from the smoky dream pop of their debut but still with dreamy edge, albeit with an electronic/chillwave feel. No doubt it’ll win a heap of new fans.

Ummagma – ‘Kiev (Haioka Remix)’

ummagma-kiev-remixes

Ummagma continue their prolific year of non-stop music making with the ‘Kiev Remixes’ (out now via Emerald & Dooreen Recordings)! The Canadian-Ukrainian duo enlisted a huge amount of talent to rework ‘Kiev’ including Japan’s Shintaro Haioka. Take a listen to the ambient electronic piece below, a beautifully warped re-imagining (as requested by @shoegazeindie)!

Allegories – ‘Funny Way Of Loving You’

allegories-artwork

There’s something very compelling about Allegories ‘Funny Way Of Loving You’ that I can’t put my finger on! The hypnotic video helps, together with that amazing voice (that reminds me of Ian McCulloch from Echo & The Bunnymen). Truth is, nobody knows much about the Belize duo but I’m hoping there’s more from where the debut came from!
