Dead Gaze – ‘Wait For Nothing’

dead gaze-easy travels

Dead Gaze has returned! The acid-drenched creations of Mississippi’s R. Cole Furlow are sounding as warped as ever. ‘Wait For Nothing’ is a ripping cut from his latest full length ‘Easy Travels’ (out this week through Ernest Jenning Record Co). It follows the psych leaning lead single ‘Constantly Happy’, and heads an album of eclectic gems. Dead Gaze as always, doesn’t disappoint.

‘Moon Queen’ is our first listen to Slow Down Molasses‘ third album ‘100% Sunshine’. The Canadian shoegaze act are following up last year’s ‘Burnt Black Cars‘ album with another record of reverb rockers, plus the five piece have a summer tour planned with spots alongside the Besnard Lakes and Built To Spill (dates below). ‘Moon Queen’ is a hard hitting ear bleeder with noise pop energy and charm, for fans of Swervedriver or Kindling. Noyes Records (home to We Need Secrets and Ringo Deathstarr) are releasing ‘100% Sunshine’ on vinyl, CD, and digital from September 2 (pre-order).

Preoccupations – ‘Degraded’

preoccupations-album-cover

Fans of stormy post punk should mark September 16 in their diary because Preoccupations are on their way. ‘Degraded’ is the second single (following ‘Anxiety’) from their forthcoming LP, it’s dripping with nostalgia; the lyrical hopelessness is backed by a scratchy 80s sound that’s bound to draw some obvious comparisons. It needs more reverb *grin* other than that I’m sold! The Preoccupations self-titled album will be available from Inertia/Jagjaguwar.

Newmoon – ‘Head Of Stone’

newmoon-space

Belgium reverb rockers Newmoon serve up ‘Head Of Stone’, the lead single from their forthcoming debut album ‘Space’. The quintet released their first EP shortly after forming in 2013, going on to tour Europe with Cloakroom and Nothing (among others). Influenced by The Jesus & Mary Chain, Sunn o))) and Slowdive, Newmoon produce a widescreen sound with crossover appeal. ‘Head Of Stone’ gets under the skin with its moody tone and driving melody. ‘Space’ is out October 14 via Pias (Belgium) and Mayfly Records (USA).
