No Body Died – ‘The Nihilist and The Pretender’ [Premiere]


We recently indulged in ‘Dschungel’, an impressive electronic shoegazer from No Body Died. This week we’re celebrating the release of their debut full lengthThe Nihilist and The Pretender’ (out February 19) with the first public album stream! The Aussie duo (Jay Westfold and Declan Humphreys) combine ‘gazey textures, wall of sound sonics, and stormy vocal melodies. After six years working together, No Body Died carved out a sound that crosses genres and delves into deep and dark lyrics. The Nihilist and The Pretender’ is a bit of an enigma, well suited to those of diverse tastes. It’s a solid and unpredictable debut, my faves being the shoegazey numbers like ‘Dschungel’, ‘Loss’ and ‘The Haunting’. Australian fans can catch them live at the album launch this Friday at The Armidale Club (with visuals from Giv). Pick up The Nihilist and The Pretender’ via all online stores (iTunes preorder here), streaming services and CD Baby.

Tiny Fireflies – ‘Melody (The Bilinda Butchers Remix)’


The Bilinda Butchers have crafted a spacey remix of the Tiny Fireflies ‘Melody’ from their latest record ‘The Space Between’ (via The Nerdist). The extended rework gives it the Bilinda Butchers dreamy touch, to be featured on the Japanese release (through Art Union). You can read Michal’s thoughts on the track right here.

No Body Died – ‘Dschungel’

no body died-artwork

Aussie electronic duo No Body Died have shared their “sonic-ode to the late David Bowie’s Berlin Years” with ‘Dschungel’. It’s the second single from their forthcoming album ‘The Nihilist & The Pretender’ (expected February). Jay Westfold and Declan Humphreys formed No Body Died in 2010, crafting layered electronic work that aims to subvert the conventions of shoegaze and dream pop (a la Ulrich Schnauss, or Reighnbeau). Thanks to Ray for the heads up!

The Bilinda Butchers Feat. Smany – ‘Sentimental Girl’s Violent Joke’ (Number Girl Cover)


The Bilinda Butchers are back! The San Fran trio have covered ‘Sentimental Girl’s Violent Joke’ by Number Girl, and it’s out now via their own label Zoom Lens. The dream house track features guest vocalist Smany who continues The Bilinda Butchers Japanese-flavoured sound (in unpredictable fashion)! Always great, and always full of character. It’s the first new music from The Bilinda Butchers since their 2014 LP ‘Heaven’, and arrives following their North American tour with Craft Spells.

Late Night Hysterics – ‘Moondance’


Time to finish off the week with a jaw dropping new single from Late Night Hysterics. ‘Moondance’ is a hazy electronic creation that sits somewhere between Ulrich Schnauss and Boards Of Canada. Cinematic and slow moving, this is utterly compelling listening! The Western Australian five piece are launching the single (through Blue Grey Pink) at The Astor Lounge (Perth) on April 5.

Bizarre – ‘Vectors’


And now for something completely different! Seksound are re-issuing Bizarre’s 1996 tape ‘Cafe De Flor‘ (on digital, and for the first time on vinyl). It’s the second album from the band, who are considered to be one of the first shoegaze bands from Estonia! ‘Vectors’ is just a taste, the rest of the album is quite a trip! A mix of experimental electronica, world music and shoegaze.
