seasurfer-stay-artwork

Seasurfer are just about ready to unleash their wall of sound on the masses! Their full length ‘Dive In’ will be out in a few week’s via Saint Marie Records (pre-order). Karl Skivington (of Spotlight Kid) lent a hand with production and it sounds big! The self confessed dreampunks are fronted by Berlin’s Dorian E. and Dirk the noise maker (founder of Dark Orange). Today we have a sneak peek at the new remix single ‘Stay‘, a reverb monster with shades of coldwave and post punk.

On May 20 The Capsules will release their fifth album ‘The Long Goodbye’, building on the electronic dream pop of last year’s full length ‘Northern Lights & Southern Skies’. It’s a pleasure to premiere the new video ‘Super Symmetry’, a beautifully animated clip of mass industrialisation! The Dallas-based trio (Julie Shields, Jason Shields and Kevin Trevin) come armed with sharp production talent and of course, Julie’s vocal harmonies.

Moonbell – ‘Warm Head Rush’ [Premiere]

MOONBELL - 'AFTERLIVES'

San Francisco shoegazers Moonbell return with their new LP ‘Afterlives’ and SBWR is happy to premiere the album cut ‘Warm Head Rush’. The four piece have already impressed with their ‘Parallel‘ and ‘Figurine‘ EP’s in 2012/11 and their forthcoming full length looks to capitalize on their Creation/4AD inspired sound but now with the added influence from 60s and 70s garage rock! ‘Afterlives’ was mastered by Mike Wells (Tamaryn/Weekend) and will be available digitally and on limited cassette from Moonbell’s own label Hypnogram! from April 1. The label focuses on DIY recordings, ‘Afterlives’ being a DIY experiment of its own and the result of a self-recording and mixing effort. Be sure to check back with Hypnogram! when it goes live next month. In the meantime, check out this loose and lovely lo-fi rocker!

Dead Leaf Echo – ‘true.deep.sleeper’ EP [Premiere]

DEAD LEAF ECHO - 'TRUE DEEP SLEEPER'

Brooklyn’s Dead Leaf Echo deliver their four track EP ‘true.deep.sleeper’ today via Moon Sounds Records (digital/vinyl)! The new release follows the quartet’s debut LP ‘Thought And Language‘ and leads into a fresh set of tour dates across the USA and Canada (see below). The title track ‘true​.​deep​.​sleeper’ is a densely layered affair with a seductive vocal line woven through the wash. Clearly all of last year’s live shows have paid off because Dead Leaf Echo are sounding more confident than ever. The EP pays homage to the shoegazing anthems of their debut but then extends into electronic territory for the ambient ‘heaven.sent.sleeper’. There’s a definite 80s synth pop influence throughout, the dark and swirling ‘so.wrong’ is the best example, not unlike the early days of The Cure. Whereas ‘blind.island’ is a sojourn into experimental dream pop, with its twisted vocal performances and overall oddity. ‘true​.​deep​.​sleeper’ is a welcome edition to Dead Leaf Echo’s catalog and will appease fans hanging out for album number two which is expected later this year.

Doorbells – ‘Dancing With A Ghost’ [Premiere]

DOORBELLS - 'AFTERLIFE'

Treat yourself to the ambient haze of ‘Dancing With A Ghost’, the first public track from Doorbells forthcoming EP ‘Afterlife’ (available from March 4). It’s the work of Ohio native Nic Berlin, who collaborated with producer Adam Korbesmeyer for the EP. Together they recorded ‘Afterlife’ over ten days in Adam’s studio (Whiteout Audio) in Cleveland. During recording, Nic was going through a break up (always a great songwriting catalyst), he explains it was like “feeling as if you were playing hide and seek. I was writing these songs as a form of closure and didn’t want her to hear or see anything I was working on.  It was bizarre that I had a secret living in my own home, being with someone for so long and not sharing your art or music with them because it would unsettle them in some way, is daunting.” The emotional tone is evident on ‘Dancing With A Ghost’, Nic’s melodies push through the multi-layered texture of the song, somehow remaining delicate and bold at the same time. If you’re a fan of dreamy jangle pop, this is one to check out!
