MELODY’S ECHO CHAMBER will release her self-titled debut album on 25th September through Weird World. Another tantalising preview of what to expect from forthcoming release comes in the shape of new, underwater, video for I Follow You. Typically breathy vocals and dreamlike soundscapes are the nuts and bolts, with a scratchy psych riff on the end for good measure.
Take a listen to previous track, Endless Shore, here.
FEMALE BAND will release her new EP Goodbye New York, Forever through Italian Beach Babes on August 20th. As a teaser, you can stream lead track, Rain Song, below. It’s gentle and pensive; slow, meaningful lyricism displaying Anastasia Vtorova’s penchant for intricate song-writing.
Lo-fi’s latest ‘supergroup’ consists of Vivian Girls’ Cassie Ramone and Kevin Morby from Woods joining forces under the moniker of THE BABIES.
Their forthcoming single, Moonlight Mile, evokes a strange sense of vintage nostalgia that you can’t really seem to definitively place; rock ‘n’ roll dé-ja-vu. I personally believe that this music feels like it is best enjoyed whilst cruising through the Nevada desert in a a red cadillac outrunning some kind of federal agents that are trying to imprison you for a crime you didn’t commit. Your turn…
The single will be released on August 18th via Woodsist with the album to follow in the autumn.
TheHYPOCRITE IN A HIPPY CRYPT project comes from Bloomington, Indiana. After releasing lo-fi debut Tweaker In The Park in 2011, the 20-year-old has recorded a follow up Tweaker Two due out later in the year.
First song to be heard from that is lo-fi slacker pop track Freak Me Out, complete with talk of contagious Raybans, suicide and a cranked out chorus. Listen below.
DIGNAN PORCH have released a new single from their upcoming L.P Nothing Bad Will Ever Happen, out through Captured Tracks on August 14th.
The tentative, Lower Dens-like opening chords of Sad Shape give way to effects-ridden guitars – the filtron pedal in particular is pressed firmly to the metal – and a deliberately detuned fizzer of a solo. Listen below.
