Kindling – ‘Weightlessly’

kindling-everywhere-else-cover

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.

Austrian shoegaze / dream pop band Molly are now shipping vinyl copies of their debut EP ‘Sun Sun Sun’ (grab one here). The duo craft a stunning ambient sound that has so far landed plays on BBC6, Radio FM4 and GoTV. Molly has also picked up live spots with The KVB and The Telescopes. The worst part about the ‘Sun Sun Sun’ EP is that it’s over too soon! Recommended listening.

The Stargazer Lilies – ‘Door To The Sun’

the-stargazer-lilies-door-to-the-sun-cover

Graveface Records dished up a fantastic psych / shoegaze crossover record this month; The Stargazer LiliesDoor To The Sun’. The Pennsylvanian trio has hit their stride on their sophomore offering; it’s a dynamic and woozy collection of dreamy rockers. Lead track ‘Summer’s Gone’ is flanked by some super trippy creations that at times melt into droning mantras. Changes are, you’re already all over it. If not, indulge yourself…

No Joy – ‘Drool Sucker’

no-joy-drool-sucker

In case you missed it; Canadian reverb rockers No Joy dished up ‘A Thorn In Garland’s Side’. It’s lifted from the forthcoming three-track EP (out July 15 through Topshelf). It’s matched with fairy tale themed artwork, presumably in ode to the troubled Wizard Of Oz actress. No Joy are sounding as impulsive and awesome as ever. Side note, the press shot is brilliantly dysfunctional; it’s model poses versus simmering pits of despair!
