School ’94 – ‘Common Sense’

school-94-bound-cover

Swedish new wave act School ’94 are set to release their second EP ‘Bound’ next month through Luxury. The first single ‘Common Sense’ is another stunner with an 80s feel. To me, it sounds a little like Kate Bush fronting The Cure. Either way, great tune!

Westkust – ‘Easy’

westkust-last-forever-album

Westkust have delivered their new LP ‘Last Forever’ featuring the stand out lead track ‘Swirl’ and the equally loveable ‘Weekends’, ‘Easy’ and ‘Jonna’. The Swedish band produce twee noise poppers at a relentless pace with catchy boy/girl vocals. The digital is up for grabs now, with vinyl pressings from Sweden’s Luxury, and now from Run For Cover Records (USA). ‘Last Forever’ is easy to fall for – find out for yourself (full stream below)…

Westkust – ‘Swirl’ / ‘Weekends’

westkust-last-forever-album

Swedish noise poppers Westkust have posted two tracks (‘Swirl’ and ‘Weekends’) from their forthcoming debut album ‘Last Forever’. The Gotheburg quintet have honed their punk meets shoegaze sound since forming in 2010, so far with a 7inch and EP under their belt. Stereogum recently premiered ‘Swirl’, also giving the thumbs up to Makthaverskan (a post punk band that features two members of Westkust). Needless to say, with explosive tunes like this I’m sure the first Swedish vinyl pressing will disappear fast! ‘Last Forever’ will be released via Swedish label Luxury on April 22, Run For Cover Records will distribute it to the USA later in the year (more @ Bandcamp).
