Cheatahs – ‘Seven Sisters’

cheatahs-mythologies

Cheatahs haven’t stopped since releasing their fantastic debut album last year. The London rock act have already given fans two EPs in 2015 (‘Sunne’ and ‘Murasaki’), and on October 30 we’ll have their second album ‘Mythologies’ (out via Wichita Recordings). The lead single ‘Seven Sisters’ is a reverb rocker with layered vocals and plenty of unpredictable twists and turns. It’s got a psych tinge to it, and is perhaps their strongest single this year. Pre-sales are already available here. P.S. not sure about the promo photo… looks like the lads got lost in the jungle and let off a flare!?

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).

Here’s an exclusive listen to ‘Wrapped In Plastic’, the debut album from Blindness. It’s out today (on digital, disc and vinyl) through Saint Marie Records. The London-based trio craft relentless ass kickers with industrial swagger and noise rock intensity! Lead tracks ‘Confessions’ and ‘Serves Me Right’ are a testament to that. The group features veteran guitarist Debbie Smith (formerly of Curve, Echobelly and Snowpony), together with bassist Emma Quick and programmer/singer Beth Rettig. Brits can catch the album launch this Sunday (details at FB).

Minor Victories – ‘Film One’

minor victories-film-one

The latest supergroup to whet our rock n’ roll fantasies is Minor Victories, a recently announced collective including Slowdive’s Rachel Goswell, Mogwai’s Stuart Braithwaite, Hand Held Cine Club’s James Lockey and Editors’ Justin Lockey. The term ‘supergroup’ often creates more internet hype than it merits, but after watching Minor Victories first teaser video, they may live up to it. Sure, it’s just a snippet but it’s all class (via Pitchfork TV). The audio (on the car stereo) at the beginning sounds gigantic. *drools*

Sleepy – ‘The Ride Up’

sleepy-ep

‘The Ride Up’ is a fuzz filled, feel good rocker from Sleepy‘s forthcoming debut EP. The Aussie trio rebirth 90s nostalgia in a super fun way, with a head nod to classic acts like Teengage Fanclub, Smudge, and Redd Kross. It follows last year’s ‘Hit And Run’ 7inch and should put a smile on your face! There’s also fresh fuzzy singles from Major Leagues and Yuck to check out this week. \m/
