Kindling – ‘Capital Cities’

kindling-everywhere-else-cover

‘Capital Cities’ is the latest pitch bending shoegazer from Kindling (as premiered by the A.V. Club). The Massachusetts quintet deliver their new full length ‘Everywhere Else’ on August 12 via No Idea Records, it also features the lead single ‘Weightlessly‘. It’s sounding great so far, as recorded at Sonelab in rural Easthampton with Justin Pizzoferrato (Pixies, Speedy Ortiz etc.)

Kindling – ‘Weightlessly’

Kindling have announced that their new album ‘Everywhere Else’ will be out August 12 via No Idea Records! It’s the follow up to last year’s four track EP ‘Galaxies’. The Massachusetts shoegaze act are sounding amazing on the lead single ‘Weightlessly’ (as premiered by Stereogum). The blistering rocker is offset by a wailing guitar line and Gretchen’s chilled vocal delivery. Kindling teamed up with veteran Justin Pizzoferrato for the album, known for his work with Dinosaur Jr, Pixies and Sonic Youth.

Midnight Werewolf Records have just released ‘Honeysuckle’, the second full length from Bedroom Eyes. The Boston four piece dish out swooning rockers with force, like the catchy ‘Gypsy’, ‘Plain Heir’ and ‘Restless’. Since releasing their 2012 debut, Bedroom Eyes have changed their line-up, ditched a recording session and played shows alongside No Joy, Cloakroom and Infinity Girl. The hard work sounds like it was worth it, this ten track collection is finely tuned! Full stream below.
