Pastel Coast – Vacation
Vacation is one of those songs that reminds me of so much and yet I am unable to recall a single reference off the top of my head!
Sugar World – Sad In Heaven
Sad in Heaven is one of those fuzzy indiepop tracks that will penetrate your brain given the number of hooks and earworms it contains.
New Moon – Collide Into Me
Collide Into Me is a lovely, gentle dreampop song, despite the maudlin words, that tugs at ones consciousness
Tokyo Tea Room – Always Tomorrow
Heavenly vocals mix it up with downtempo, sometimes dubby electronica whilst the translucent guitars do their thing.
Egoism – What Are We Doing?
Australians Egoism make catchy indiepop/dreampop tunes and What Are We Doing? is no exception.
Brilliant Beast – Do We Still Go Dancing?
The standout track for me from the band’s recent Pageant Fatigue EP.
Gaarden – Shiny Day
The new single out now on Library Group Records.
Holy Drone – Northern Fire
Formerly known as Danxia, Warrington’s Holy Drone make lovely psychedelic influenced shoegaze which is clearly evidenced on Northern Fire.
Ancient Light – The Panther
A dark and haunting song. Play with the lights dimmed….
Auto-Vélo – Copernica
The title track opens proceedings and features jerky guitars with backing beats provided by the synth alongside side excellent main and backing vocals.
Blue Tomorrows – Sound Of Moving
Sound Of Moving is a dreamy, soothing track that also dabbles in psychedelia in the style of Spaceman 3.
Smiles – This Boy
Flip side of the new single Gone For Good which is out now on Slumberland Records.
UV-TV – Mirror
Taken from the current album Happy.
The Umbrella Puzzles – Somersaulting
The Umbrella Puzzles is the latest project of Ryan Marquez. Somersaulting is taken from the self titled debut EP.
Palm Haze – Second Round
The latest single to be lifted from the band’s just released debut album, Rêve Bleu.
The Wellington – It’s So Fine
It’s So Fine sees the band drop the psychedelic and baroque influences from their previous single and replacing them with a sound reminiscent of Creation Records 1989/90.
Mitimitis – Ella Flotó Sobre Mi Y Voló Un Auto Con Su Rayo Laser
A track taken from the excellent Abrilar EP.
The Reds, Pinks & Purples – A Kick in the Face (That’s Life)
The brand new single out now.
Horsebeach – Unlucky Strike

The Popguns – Carrying The Fire
………… is a rousing guitar driven track asking “are you ready to go…….one step” which is sung singer Wendy Pickles in a raucous manner.
Ruby Haunt – Jeune
Reminds me of the indiepop bands Heavenly used to put out many moons ago. Mesmerising and heartfelt.
