Secrets Of The Third Planet – ‘Stars’

Secrets Of The Third Planet have dropped my jaw with a stellar space rocker called ‘Stars’ in the lead up to their new album ‘Bird Station‘ (out April 4). The Russian quartet produce a mix of ambient rock, post-rock and shoegaze. Their work aims to push the boundaries of songwriting; with progressive structures and much sonic bliss. The two public ‘Bird Station’ tracks each run over eight minutes and are brimming with ideas, noise and unpredictability. S3P, you have my attention!

The foursome mix it up with a blend of ‘gazey , droning slow burners. There’s something here for fans of post-rock, psych or shoegaze. Stream in full below…

Lorelle Meets The Obsolete – ‘La Distinción’

lorelle-meets-the-obsolete-distance

Lorelle Meets The Obsolete are back with ‘La Distinción’, a prowling psych rocker that would sound perfectly at home in a Tarantino movie. They capture so much vintage analogue warmth, like there’s already dust and ash on the reel! The wailing guitar solo towards the end is the cherry on top. It’s taken from the Mexican duo’s forthcoming fourth album ‘Distance’, out September 16 via Captcha Records (US) / Sonic Cathedral (UK/EU). The album was an international affair; recorded at home in Mexico, then mixed in Chicago by Cooper Crain (Cave, Bitchin Bajas), and mastered in Melbourne by Mikey Young (Total Control, Eddy Current Suppression Ring).

Deadpan Interference have delivered a stormy rock monolith by way of their debut EP (out now via Drone Recordings)! This is something for psych and shoegaze fans, as you’ll see from the tune ‘I Like the Taste (of Ugly Women)’. The foursome have only been at it since 2013, grabbing the attention of fans from the underground Danish scene. Understandably so, it’s an accomplished debut!

Last year he delivered the EP ‘Songs For Jealous Lovers‘, a spacey pairing of surf rock and shoegaze. This week we can reveal his new project, Ulrika Spacek. The duo’s debut single ‘I Don’t Know’ is a lo-fi psych rocker with dreamy vocal harmonies and liberal phaser use! Ulrika Spacek have already recorded much of their debut album, more soon.
