Shinies - De C

Solid noise rock from this Mancunian outfit. Proceeds apace and does not let up until it implodes in cloud of fuzz.

Hideous Towns - Devolution

With a band name taken from The Sundays’ track, this is pretty much how you’d expect it to sound. The dreamiest dream pop.

Be Forest - Totem

Beautiful dream pop instrumental from Italian group Be Forest. The train-like drumming in this is just superb. They are touring around the US in November, a rare opportunity to catch this group.

Venera 4 - Black Paws

No secret this blog’s been enamored with the French group Venera 4 for a while. But this new track, Black Paws, is so damn impressive it gave me butterflies. A relentless onslaught of their blend of psychedelia and shoegaze with a killer rhythm section. Guys, this thing even has melody you might even remember in the morning. Keep an eye out for their debut LP think it’s going to be a keeper.

By The Sea - You’re The Only One

Here’s a new video from Liverpool’s By The Sea for the single You’re The Only One. Top-notch jangly indie pop that will put a skip in your step and ruin your bowling technique.

Melody’s Echo Chamber - Shirim

It’s been a long while since we’ve heard anything new from Melody Prochet. It appears her sound has evolved quite a bit. While this track is unmistakably Melody’s Echo Chamber, there’s some delightful surprises. There’s still the heavily-warped instruments, the slight, remote vocals and grainy production but now there’s a dance beat (albeit with almost unrecognizable percussion), funky guitar chops and a sing-along hook. This song screams whimsy and fun but, at the same time, is super original and interesting.

Little Dragon - Ritual Union (Maya Jane Cole remix)

Not sure why or how this little old nugget appeared on my feed but so glad it did. I cannot think of many more magical unions than Maya Jane Coles and Little Dragon. What is great MJC’s light touch, keeping the bones of a fantastic song but giving it a different vibe. Why can’t all remixes be this good?
