Oh, and we LOVE being sent ACTUAL, REAL, PHYSICAL music, so drop us a line if you want to make our day.
Slaves – Cut and Run
Brilliant track from the British duo, and what a video to go with it. Try not to want to bust out these moves after watching it; it’s just impossible to refuse the scissor dance.
Sluff – Deep Blue
Viennese trio Sluff have dropped the first taste of their upcoming album, On Debris, that is set for a September release, and it’s a dirty little indie shoegaze track. Rough around the edges and accompanied by precise but low-key vocals that float over the bed of guitars and drums like a dream.
Overjoy – Same
Overjoy is an LA-based electronic band dishing out breezy vibes, visceral percussion, and lush vocals that evoke a hazy sense of euphoria. The group, whose name brings reference to a peak flow-state of mind, creates dance music for the soul. Listen to their new track below.
Breathe Panel – Sunrise / Sunshine
Next up is a lovely bit of shoegaze, garage-rock psychedelia from Brighton-based four-piece Breathe Panel. ‘Sunrise/Sunshine’ is out now on FatCat Records. Recalling thoughtful days spent outdoors, the vocals wash across bright, shimmering guitars and intricate drum patterns to create something beautifully expansive yet highly introspective. The track is taken from their upcoming self-titled debut album due out mid-July
Cigarettes after Sex continue to make lovely, atmospheric and depressingly beautiful music with their new single Crush. Don’t listen to this if you’re feeling a little emotional, because, waterfalls….
Dolores Haze – Banana
Inspired by the #metoo movement, this song from the Swedish Lo-Fi Punk girl band is all about them not wanting to see our dirty stinking bananas. The message is plain and simple about sexual consent, using witty one-liners and double-entendres to describe our wee ding dongs and why they should stay in their ding dong dungarees.
River – Malibu
You know, there are some tracks that are difficult to describe, because words don’t really do them enough justice. Malibu by newcomer River is of these. So just listen to it and enjoy.
Sofia Portanet – Freier Geist
What an awesomely 80s track this is from half-Spanish, half-German artist Sofia Portanet. If you love reminiscing about that dodgy decade that was the 1980s, then you’ll love this journey back down memory lane.
Moli – Didn’t Mean To
It’s always good to have a little bit of pop in your life. So spice it up a little bit with this catchy track from Moli, which deals with positives that come from the woes of short-term dating and heartbreak. Give it a listen and let it make you smile.
