As far as Dead Gaze goes, I’m biased. Ever since hearing ‘Fishing With Robert’ a few years back I’ve tried to piece together the Dead Gaze catalogue, and failed. There was an album (of sorts), a few EPs, a single or two, but no definitive collection to dive into. Thankfully FatCat Records have stepped in, on March 25 the [...]
Wrap your ears around Brooklyn’s Los Encantados, a six piece indie rock act on the verge of releasing their debut LP in 2013. Meanwhile ‘ZZZZ’ comes from the third chapter of their EP series ‘The Same Damned Soul’. Its a vintage lullaby that throws a mild tantrum before getting its way. If only my high school dance played [...]
Belfast rock act Girls Names return with their latest single ‘A Trouble See’, released on a split 7inch with Weird Dreams’ ‘House Of Secrets’ on London label Tough Love and in the US via Slumberland Records. Girls Names second album is expected to take a darker twist, a step away from the surf pop they’ve [...]
The Louche FC have officially dropped the ‘FC’ and a new tune called ‘Salt’. The Salford-based four piece released their debut single ‘Back Bedroom Casualty’ in early 2011. Their latest creation sounds like Fleetwood Mac meets noise rock – impressive! Visit The Louche @ Bandcamp @ Sways Records @ Facebook.
Fans have been waiting since 1999 for fresh Sebadoh tunes, now they have it. This week the band released a new EP ‘Secret‘ featuring ‘Keep The Boy Alive’. There’s also a new LP in the works (due next year) plus a North American tour kicking off in Philly next month. If that’s not enough, Lou [...]
Fans of 90s rock take note, Daydreamer‘s ‘Beach Blanket’ is like Teenage Fanclub with overdrive! The Californian quartet have released the six track EP ‘Because’ (free download). The only thing loose about this tune is the snare trap. Its simple, sunny, indie rock. Download Daydreamer’s ‘Because’ EP @ Bandcamp / Connect @ Facebook.
Distorted vocals, swooning guitars, a wall of noise. All good things! ‘Rules Of Youth’ opens The Folk‘s new EP ‘Say It Again‘. Sounds like Silversun Pickups meets The Naked & Famous. The Toronto-based five piece have been at it for over two years, picking up festival appearances at NXNE, Hillside Festival and Pop Montreal. The Folk will set [...]
‘Strangelife’ hit the interwebs last year but thanks to Hare Tracks and Double Sun Recordings it’s now Yast‘s second official single (via No Modest Bear). Seems odd really, considering the Swedish lo-fi act have released numerous demos and downloads since forming in 2007. But who am I to judge!? Its a straightforward, sunny slice of songwriting (how’s that for alliteration)!? [...]
Sisters Colette and Hannah Thurlow have been working alongside producers Rob Ellis (PJ Harvey) and Alan Moulder (Ride, My Bloody Valentine, Nine Inch Nails) to put the finishing touches on their debut record (due May 28 via Fiction Records/Fat Possum). The British rock duo work under the moniker 2:54 and have released their first single [...]
