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).

FPRF-87-Chill

Russia’s FPRF have quietly dropped a new EP called ‘87% Chill’. The Novosibirsk foursome have changed up their sound since 2012’s self-titled LP, this time it’s less post-rock and more jangle pop, but still with the dreamy FPRF touch. It’s their happiest and catchiest release to date.
