Before you scream “I don’t hear enough rock n’ roll coming out of Indonesia these days!”…hold your breath… there is My Violaine Morning!

These guys have been around since the mid noughties seemingly on a mission to re-invent the mid-nineties, or late-eighties, or whenever the Cocteau Twins, Ride and Slowdive were about.

On September 14 My Violaine Morning‘s album ‘The Next Episode Of This World’ will be released through Japanese label Happy Prince and distributed in the U.S. by Darla Records. The first track we’ve heard is ‘Light Inside’ which Yugo Inoue at Happy Prince is offering as a free download here to fans until August 31.

You can pickup the album ‘The Next Episode Of This World’ from Happy Prince or Darla Records. More info at My Violaine Morning Myspace or their official website.

If you’re grumpy that Wild Nothing haven’t toured your town yet… you’re not alone. Demand it now via Eventful. Since half of Captured Tracks roster has already been posted, I couldn’t leave out Jack Tatum’s Wild Nothing.

‘Chinatown’ is a must listen if you haven’t already played the ‘Gemini’ album to death! Apparently, if you listen to the CD three times on repeat, the disc will jump out of your stereo and completely vacuum your floor! But…if that doesn’t happen you can file a complaint here.

Visit Wild Nothing @ Myspace or shop @ Captured Tracks.

With such a multitude of music constantly floating by its hard to stop and look at whats just around the corner because there’s always another ten thousand songs to listen to! Having said that, if there’s one album I’ve been waiting for most its I Break Horses ‘Hearts’. Hurry up August 22!

The I Break Horses duo (Maria Linden and Fredrik Balck) have been crafting this one in Stockholm for the past couple of years and the first two sneak peek tunes are stunning. They cite their influences as My Bloody Valentine, Slowdive and Jesus & Mary Chain. The title track is a must hear, described by Bella Union as “a gorgeous Scandinavian croon that’s bathed in an ocean of reverb and tremelo”. The recently released ‘Winter Beats’ proves that its not a one off.

You can pre-order I Break Horses ‘Hearts’ from Bella Union here.
