HONEY – KILLER SAINTS

HONEY is a new band formed by some of our friends over at the Shacklewell Arms. First track available to stream is Killer Saints, an angsty slice of hazy pop. Take a listen below and stay tuned.

TAMARYN – HEAVENLY BODIES


TAMARYN will release their new album Tender New Signs through Mexican Summer on 16th October. Latest track Heavenly Bodies is shoegaze heavy with vocals deep beneath murky reverb. Watch the video above.

MELODY’S ECHO CHAMBER – I FOLLOW YOU


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 – RAIN SONG

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.

DANTE BASCO – TICKETS

Here’s another track from DANTE BASCO, stage name of former Gross Magic and current Boneyards drummer Joseph Murphy.

Tickets, with its squelchy lo-fi murmurs, is an extension of the slightly warped and spooky sounds we brought you on the blog a couple of weeks ago.

PLAYLOUNGE – CONOR, OH BURST?


PLAYLOUNGE
have released the iPhone shot video for new single Conor, Oh Burst? At just over a minute long, it’s a brief summer jaunt along the pier, awash with dreamy colours.

The single is taken from Art Is Hard Record’s Family Portrait split 7″, also featuring Keel Her, Gum, and Joanna Gruesome.

THE BABIES – MOONLIGHT MILE

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.

DANTE BASCO – LOOKED AT YOU (SAW ME) / NUANCED

DANTE BASCO is the moniker of Joseph Murphy, who you may have heard hitting drums in Boneyards and Gross Magic. Name inspiration comes from the actor who played Rufio in Hook way back in 1991.

As for the music, the first songs uploaded to soundcloud are spooky sounding lo-fi concoctions. Listen to Looked At You (Saw Me) and Nuanced below.

THE RAVEONETTES – SHE OWNS THE STREETS


THE RAVEONETTES
have premièred the video for new single She Owns The Streets over at Noisey.

Directed by Peter Kaaden and filmed on VHS, it follows a New York City street dancer named Loan as she expresses herself freely among bemused commuters, pedestrians and on coming traffic.

The track is taken from their forthcoming album, Observator, out September 11th  on VICE Records.

AMEN DUNES | 18.09.2012

AMEN DUNES, the solo project of Damon Mcmahon, will play a show at the Shacklewell Arms on Tuesday September 18th.

The New York native recorded his sophomore LP  Through Donkey Jaw in January and it boasts a fuller sound than his largely acoustic solo début Murder Mull Mind.
