Lights That Change – ‘Voices’


Ear To Ear Records presents ‘Voices‘, the latest single from Lights That Change! Summoning the spirit of This Mortal Coil, Dance Can Dance and Cocteau Twins, this dream popper has an 80s feel with a dark edge that reaches into the depths. Lights That Change is the work of Welsh music maker Marc Joy, who is joined on ‘Voices’ by vocalist Rebecca Plain (of Golden Fable) and Mal Holmes (of Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark).

Blind Mr. Jones – ‘Tatooine’


Saint Marie Records is celebrating the 20th Anniversary release of Blind Mr. Jones‘ classic album ‘Tatooine’ (on CD and Vinyl). This is the first time the album has been available on wax, now fully remastered with sexy artwork! The British shoegazers drew comparisons to Ride and Slowdive at the time, one of their defining features was the inclusion of a flutist. As Last fm puts it, they were “jokingly referred to as the Jethro Tull of shoegazing for their frequent use of flute”. Jump into the full LP stream below and hit up Saint Marie for a copy!

The Virgance – ‘Hiko Shrine’


Last October we had a listen to ‘Propulsion Lab Part 1‘ by British shoegazer The Virgance. This week, the solo artist releases his second album ‘Hiko Shrine‘, an ode to instrumental drone, shoegaze and experimental noise. It’s the work of Nathan Smith, who debuted his work as The Virgance on last year’s ‘Lost Continent‘ LP. His latest is a melodic step forward whilst keeping a foot in the lo-fi waters of his debut. It’s not for the casual listener, just because there’s an absence of vocals doesn’t mean it’s background music! The Virgance is a textured, visceral experience that’s best consumed as a whole. Listening through one song doesn’t do it justice. Stream the rest below or grab a copy at Bandcamp.
