Viscous Liquid – ‘Songs For Jealous Lovers’

viscous liquid-songs for jealous lovers-artwork-cover

Earlier this year we had a listen to Viscous Liquid’s stellar song ‘When I See You‘ in the lead up to an EP release. In case you missed it, the UK-based solo artist (Rhys Williams) has now delivered ‘Songs For Jealous Lovers‘ and it’s a great listen for fans of shoegaze or lo-fi surf pop. Head over to Bandcamp for a download if it lifts your skirt!

Gulls – ‘Deep Water’

GULLS - 'DEEP WATER'

Here’s a delightful ditty from British newcomers Gulls. The five piece are busy working on a new EP release but have posted a number of promising demos on Soundcloud. ‘Deep Water’ is a jangle meets surf pop tune, which is all light and floaty on top but with lyrics that are a little less sunny. Looking forward to hearing more soon.

Balue – 'Australian Summer'

Lemme see if I can get this right… a British label is releasing an EP by an American artist that opens with a song about summertime in Australia. Sorted! Fuzzbook is a label that specialize in all things lo-fi, surf pop, dream pop, shoegaze and fuzz pop! Their debut cassette release is Balue’s EP ‘Worry Toobs‘ featuring ‘Australian Summer’ (pick it up here)! Balue is Denver’s Eli Thomas who creates dreamy, lo-fi surf pop. Sadly, the Australian summer is so far away right now that this song is a little cruel for locals… Sydney shivers!

Blue Boats – ‘Summers Down’

Last month Blue Boats released the free two track download ‘Sun Burns‘ featuring ‘Summers Down’. The work of British bedroom producer Oliver Gale comes off sounding like dream pop at the beach. For fans of Twin Cabins, Suburban Living and Observer Drift.

Coastal – 'Black Stars / Flash Cars'

‘Black Stars / Flash Cars’ is a drenching of nostalgic pop, swimming in warm reverb and harmony. Coastal is the work of Irish musician Paul J Fox who creates lo-fi, surf pop balladry. Influenced by the likes of My Bloody Valentine, Cocteau Twins and Grouper, there’s a definite dream pop sheen across Coastal’s sound. Download Coastal’s new five track EP ‘Crumble Blue’ free here.

Grandparents – ‘Bitter Badlands’

Psych rocking shoegazers Grandparents have released a new EP called ‘Sugar Beach’ (pick it up here free). The seven piece are based in Portland and pride themselves on lo-fi sounds, recording their work on a Tascam 488. I remember those! ‘Sugar Beach’ follows on from last year’s six track collection ‘Don’t Move Time’. ‘Bitter Badlands’ has a rough vintage flavour and wouldn’t be out of place on a 60s surfing doco.
