Sound Of Ceres – ‘Nostalgia For Infinity’


Karen and Ryan Hover (formerly Candy Claws) have rejuvenated themselves as Sound Of Ceres, premiering their forthcoming album ‘Nostalgia For Infinity’ (via Stereogum)! The duo has joined forces with Jacob Graham (The Drums), as well as Robert, Ben and John from Apples In Stereo. The result is an intricate blend of dreamy psych pop and lounge, delivered in polished and relaxed fashion. The record plays out like a summer daydream that at times drifts into dark waters. The record could have benefited from a few added spikes in energy (like the poppy ‘Side A’). Nevertheless, it captures the same otherworldly, enchanted feeling that Candy Claws did, and it’s a perfect place to hang your hat and dwell! Pick up Sound Of Ceres’ ‘Nostalgia For Infinity’ from March 4 through Joyful Noise.

Sebadoh – ‘State of Mine’


Joyful Noise deliver Sebadoh‘s new record ‘Defend Yourself’ on September 17. The latest tune ‘State Of Mind’ is a light hearted romp with a swingin’ rock feel in classic Sebadoh fashion (even without co-founder Eric Gaffney in the line-up). It’s been fourteen years since the Massachusetts trio released their last full length and Lou Barlow hasn’t lost any pep! Hardly surprising given the strength and frequency of his work with Dinosaur Jr (pre-order).
