jaguwar-ii

On April 1 Prospect Records will deliver the second offering from Jaguwar, aptly titled ‘II’! The German shoegaze outfit has posted the first public song ‘Iwo Jima Island’, a raucous noise rocker that borders industrial. The Dresden-based trio doesn’t pull any punches!

Cloak – ‘Understand’ [Premiere]

cloak-understand

It’s a pleasure to present ‘Understand’, the first official single from Cloak! The New Yorkers blend the mania of noise rock with a razor sharp, industrial sound and shoegaze textures. The concoction makes for a dense, immediate, hard hitting anthem. The four piece features guitarist Adam De Rosa, percussionist Brian Mulvaney, synth wiz (and novelist) Oliver Edsforth, together with sonic mastermind Sam Tyndall. Not to forget collaborators Shannon Funchess (of Light Asylum) and Dave Ogilvie (Skinny Puppy / Nine Inch Nails). The noisemakers first formed in 2014 before posting an ear melting demo of a song called ‘Pushed’. There’s no firm plans for an EP/LP as yet, but stay tuned! Brooklyn locals can catch Cloak live on August 16 at Palisades (details here).

Future – ‘Horizons’

future-horizons-artwork

Requiem pour un Twister presents ‘Horizons’, the debut full length from Future. The French trio (Brice Delourmel, Pauline La Chaceray and Venera 4’s Yann Canévet) craft dark and brutal songs that blur the line between noise rock, coldwave, post punk and shoegaze. The title track ‘Horizons’ plays out like a combination of Soft Moon and A Place To Bury Strangers – this is not for the feint hearted! Since forming in 2012 Future have released a number of singles and the ‘Abyss’ EP, and have played shows alongside Crocodiles, AVGVST and KVB. ‘Horizons’ is a chaotic collection that just doesn’t let up, it’s bound to please existing fans and should win them some new ones. ‘Horizons’ is available now on digital or vinyl.
