Hazy Mountains – ‘Neon Velvet’


In the lead up to a new full length, ambient electronic producer Julian Prott has delivered a new Hazy Mountains single called ‘Neon Velvet‘ (free download). The euphoric track shifts from a dream pop feel to a saturated synth anthem – there’s a lot going on here! Side note, I’m thinking purple is the early colour of choice for artwork this year.

‘Let Go’ is a reverb soaked rocker from Walls Come Down. The 30-year old solo artist (based in Germany) dips his toes in noise rock, shoegaze and psych on the four song collection ‘Volume 1’. Name your price and download from Bandcamp.

Ewok Fur – ‘Autumn Graffiti’


If you’re a fan of woozy, downbeat electronic tunes then listen up! Germany’s Ewok Fur has released a new EP ‘Dustlights‘. The solo artist uses copious effects pedals in the search for blissful euphoria! Case in point, the analogue sounding ‘Autumn Graffiti‘ which layers synthesizers and vocals in a warm wash of reverb. Best of all, it’s free.

Hazy Mountains – ‘Asleep’


Only last November Hazy Mountains delivered his debut album ‘Breeze’ but we already have a new single to chomp on! The German electronic producer (Julian Prott) returns with ‘Asleep’. This time round Julian layers dreamy vocals over a wonky beat contrasted by a frenetic mid section that melts into a cloudy, 80s disco feel (free download)!

Jaguwar – ‘Muffhead’ (Demo)


Jaguwar’s demo take of ‘Muffhead’ is a shoegaze monster! Can’t wait to hear what the final version will sound like. The Dresden-based trio came to my attention while visiting When The Sun Hits earlier in the week. If you’re not aware of this website / blog / radio show – get into it! On another note, earlier in the year its co-founder Danny Lackey sadly lost his battle with cancer. A fund for Danny’s family was setup (Bandcamp/Facebook), if you’re in a position to help out, please do. A host of amazing acts have jumped in to support – including Panda Riot, The High Violets, Drowner, SPC ECO, Ummagma and many more.

Hazy Mountains – ‘Regret’

Germany’s Julian Prott has released his second single as Hazy Mountains, titled ‘Regret’ (free download available here). Hazy Mountains overflows with lo-fi sounds, minimal vocals and washed out synths. ‘Regret’ builds in atmosphere, packed with warmth and character.
