We begin this update with Melbourne post-rock+ outfit Laedj. A great rework of an old track ‘Heard From Space’ comes off their new four track release Monitor. Irish artist Sinead O’Brien‘s cerebrally angular new single is called ‘Taken On Time’. Read about that here. The super catchy ’80s Men’ is from New Orleans Bummers from their album Buttermilk Mountain released back in late April. While not exactly new, it’s too good to not bung it in. Too Much, the duo of Ian Svenonius (Escape-ism, The Make-Up, Chain and the Gang) and producer/multi-instrumentalist Rich Morel have released the suave motorik single ‘Patent Leather’. American Experimental rock legends Pere Ubu dropped their left field pop laden new single ‘What I Heard On The Pop Radio’ which appears on their new long player The Long Goodbye.
The angsty ‘I Used To Win’ is from Melbourne’s Atom, the new project/ collaboration by Melbourne post-punk artists Harry Howard (Crime and the City Solution, These Immortal Souls), Edwina Preston (The Moll Flanders Band) and Ben Hepworth (REPAIRS, Eastlink). The ethereal ‘Cremation’ comes Cardiff synth/post punk quartet Plastic Estate whileAustralian darkwave outfit Dream Dali have returned to the country after their Berlin sojourn and release the deliberative synthwave derived ‘Hurt Me’. The dreamy ‘Nothing But Strangers’ comes from Copenhagen outfit PBSM‘s new EP called Rainbow Girl. Porto post rockers Catacombe return to the playlist with ‘Reverie’ our second pick from their new album Scintilla. Matt Messore’s Cathedral Bells return with a new single ‘Eighth Wonder Of The World’
The left field pop project Sports Coach has his new EP Sports Spirits surfacing next week. The understated yet scintillating ‘Cosmic Queries’ is from it. London dark post punk outfit Gaygirl‘s new single is called ‘Hair’ while Edinburgh’s Nasari have the relentless ‘Ghosts’ out. Manchester shoegaze outfit Lost Under Heaven formed by fortmer Wu Lyf frontman Ellery James Roberts and partner Ebony Hoorn shared the standalone single ‘Teen Violence’ a week or so back. Chicago’s French Police have a new EP out called Pedaleo Nocturno and Je Te Veax which we featured last week is from it. Texas instrumental post rock outfit Driving Slow Motion‘s ‘The Way The World Was’ is from their new record Arda. ‘You & I’ from Los Angeles shoegazers The Meeting Places is from their EP of the same name. Fellow Los Angeles post punk posters French Vanilla‘s new album is called How Am I Not Myself and the semi-manic ‘Lost Power’ is our pick from that. The synth heavy ‘Ride’ is from Boston’s IEVA while the spiky punk of GHLOW with their new single ‘Hollow’ is on the list too.
Rounding out the current list is English artist Alexander Leonard Donat aka Vlimmer, Sofia post punk outfit Les Animaux Sauvages, Granada shoegazers Lebend, Montreal artist/producer Xarah Dion, Chicago synth experimentalists and new Holodeck Records signees Grün Wasser, Los Angeles post punks Froth, Imperial Wax the Manchester outfit made up of the remaining The Fall members, Swedish austere synth duo Lust For Youth and Dublin quartet Inhaler.
