Pet Shimmers Deliver Sixth & Final Single From Debut LP

Yesterday Bristol left field pysch-pop septet Pet Shimmers dropped the sweetly absurdist slow burning single ‘Tyson’. It’s a most agreeable albeit bittersweet effort about remembering the simple honesty of a cute and honest trick performing dog who we presume is/was called Tyson. We also presume from reading between the lines that sadly Tyson is no […]

TRYING ANNOUNCE NEW EP, DROP NEW SINGLE

Columbus left field pop quartet Trying have announced the release of an upcoming new four track EP called I Just Can’t Feel The Rhythm and shared its lead single, ‘That Is Not Your Dirt’.

BLUE MATERIAL GETS PERSONAL

Blue Material, the latest project belonging to Montreal singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Thom Gillies (Vesuvio Solo, ex-TOPS) released his self titled debut album back in April and this delicate gem, new single ‘Personal’, was supposed to feature on it.

TWO NEW GOOD MORNING DELECTABLES

Melbourne left field and lo-fi pop duo Stefan Blair and Liam Parsons aka Good Morning, have spent six years, two albums and two EP’s trying their darnedest to convince you they aren’t very good.

Portland lo-fi shoegaze/dream pop outfit Floating Room have announced the upcoming release of their infectiously varied new album False Baptism. To mark the occasion they’ve shared a hazy sun soaked video to accompany the release of complex lead single ‘Seashell’.

THE CYCLIST TO DROP ALABASTER THRONES EP

Birmingham DJ & DIY Electronic and House Producer Andrew Morrison aka The Cyclist, has wasted little time in following up his excellent Sapa Inca Delirium LP from last October with a new dreamy four track house EP, Alabaster Thrones. The title track enlists Ancient Greece as a reference point and uses Homer and the fragile […]

JOHN MAUS SCORES METAPHORICAL MUSICAL & VISUAL TOUCHDOWN

Enigmatic synth pop experimentalist John Maus recently released the third cut, ‘Touchdown’ complete with video from his new album Screen Memories out yesterday. It’s a track that sees him hold up the competitive drive inherent in American Football both as mirror and metaphor for the values of society. A steady beat and a barely discernible […]
