Rollercoasterwater – ‘Unami Sounding Fireball’

rollercoasterwater-umai

I have no idea why Rollercoasterwater’s latest EP ‘Unami Sounding Fireball’ hasn’t completely blown up the blogosphere yet! Perhaps it’s because both titles are a mouthful!? Point is, these four tracks are brilliant. It’s trippy psych meets dream pop with plenty of gorgeous melodies to get lost in. Rollercoasterwater are a California-based duo featuring singer/samplist Chuckie Behrin and percussionist Robin Levy. Stream the mind bending EP in full below.

The Black Ryder – ‘Let Me Be Your Light’

The wait is (almost) over for The Black Ryder‘s second studio album ‘The Door Behind The Door’ (out February 24 – presale). EW has premiered the Aussie shoegazers latest single ‘Let Me Be Your Light’. It’s hushed tone plays out like a gothic lullaby. If a James Bond theme was ever to go dream pop, this may be it! Beautiful song. It follows the diverse singles ‘Seventh Moon’, ‘Let Me Be Your Light’ and ‘Santaria’. The Black Ryder have also announced a support slot with The Jesus And Mary Chain on their upcoming US tour.

The Black Ryder – ‘Seventh Moon’

The Black Ryder return with ‘Seventh Moon’, the latest track lifted from their forthcoming second album ‘The Door Behind The Door’ (available February 24 via The Anti-Machine Machine). It’s a beautiful late night dream pop tune, a much more sedate feel than the lead single ‘Santaria‘.

“We wanted to create music that was layered, emotive & majestic,” says vocalist/songwriter Aimee Nash in the presser. “You open one door, and you find there’s another, you keep moving through each door to the next not quite sure where you’re going or what to expect, but there’s something enticing & reassuring you that you’re moving in the right direction.”

The Black Ryder – ‘Santaria’

The wait is finally over for Black Ryder fans, the duo’s new single ‘Santaria’ premiered over at Stereogum today. The Australian shoegazers (now LA-based) will release their second album ‘The Door Behind The Door’ via their own label The Anti-Machine Machine early next year. The Black Ryder is Scott Von Ryper and Aimee Nash, together they released the debut LP ‘Buy The Ticket, Take The Ride’ in 2009 which didn’t get fantastic reviews at the time but still grew to cult classic status (amongst fans of the genre). Fingers crossed the new album will be equally brilliant!
