Sorry we’ve been away so long, we’ve just been finishing our degrees and such. This is also the product of our last few weeks, a new band that 2 members of Sweet Chariot and our dear buddy Richard Deux have started.
Found this gem of a song from Tripwires who are a glittery grunge band from Reading. They will soon be releasing their debut album Spacehopper which will be available to buy here from 17th June (UK) or 18th June (US).
New single from Laura Veirs, this is exciting! She recorded the new album whilst pregnant with her 2nd child, the album features the likes of KD Lang and apparently the content has become a little bit darker. This first single features backing vocals from Neko Case (from The New Pornographers).
The album Warp and Weft will be out on 19th August via Bella Union.
By chance these San Diego chaps followed our tumblr and I dived in to take a listen, and I was pleased. The EP is 5 songs long and recorded on a tape recorder, the lo-fi quality perfectly captures their slow surf sound. It’s all chill vibes and raw vocals people, take a chance and take a listen!
Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros - Better Days
New song from the wonderful band that brought you Home back in 2010. Their new self-titled album will be available on July 23rd, and I am mighty excited. It will no doubt be a perfect summery soundtrack.
Musicians from Toronto sure are elusive, all I know about Twist is that it is composed of two people; Laura Hermiston with Brian Borcherdt. I guess it doesn’t really matter because the music is beautiful enough to stand alone. You can download this minimal pop wonder for free through soundcloud.
The Mancunian band have recently signed to Bella Union and will be releasing their debut album in late summer. They describe their genre as Dystopian Choral, but don’t let that put strange images in your mind, the music is truly beautiful.
