Happy new year one and all. If the best of 2019 mixes (part one – part two) were not enough for you then get stuck into the first mix of 2020 featuring tracks released in the past month or so. As ever, enjoy! And goodbye to Brunch Club. Thanks for the tunes.
Sugar World – We Fell In Love
…..there is no fuzziness here and instead we are treated to a bittersweet twee-pop song.
The Sensitive – World Is Evil
The new single out now on Let’s Kiss A Secret
Sicayda – It Changed
I can see why it ‘s a favourite as it’s a feisty track mixing post-punk and shoegaze to great effect whilst the energetic vocals give the song another dynamic
The Churchhill Garden – Surrender
The new single which is out now.
La Casa De Emma – Los Calcetines De Erik
Think Taluah Gosh, The Flatmates, 53rd & 3rd, The Shop Assistants, The Rosehips, Subway Organisation et al
Flower Crown – High Fantasy
The new single out now on Crafted Sounds.
Ducks Unlimited – Gleaming Spires
Taken from the current Get Bleak EP which is out on Bobo Integral
Brunch Club – Bike Riding
The jangling guitars and the vocals will draw you in and before you know it all eight songs have been and gone. Bike Riding and Wasted Sun could easily be singles in their own right
Citrus Clouds – A Pastel Sky
You can almost see the colours form as the guitars shimmer whilst the band sing “I am floating, A million miles high” in said sky.
HoneyHead – Rollercoaster
Of the three tracks here it’s the new version of 2017’s Rollercoaster that shines with the polish giving the guitar extra intensify and making the vocals even more attractive than they already were.
Close Lobsters – All Compasses Go Wild
The first single to be taken from the forthcoming album Post Neo Anti: Arte Povera in the Forest of Symbols.
Turks & Caicos – Subversive
They save the best to last on Subversive which is jangling indiepop at it’s finest. There are some amazing sounds coming out of this one and if you don’t press repeat at least twice there is something wrong with you!
Fanclub – Trespassing
The new single from Fanclub is a delightful mix of synth and indiepop. The synths drive the song whilst the guitars buzz around in support.
VIM – Waiting
On Waiting the guitars guitars pick up the pace, shimmering as the female vocals stay in the background.
Corrections – If I’m Being Inappropriate
Taken from the forthcoming album Simply Activity which is due for release in February 2020.
Stars on Fire – Hurricane Hermione
The flip side of the band’s current single.
Linda Guilala – Será Más Fácil
The third and final part of the band’s international trilogy.
Fred Fredburger – Colegas
The debut single from the band via Elefant’s New Adventures In Pop offshoot.
Gaarden – I Am Tired
Shimmering and jangling guitars compete with forlorn vocals which are backed up by despondent words.
Intermere – Reflection
I quite like the sound of the guitars on this one. They make for a slow deep sound and whilst listening, you get more than a hint of psychedelia running through the song.
Seasurfer – Lovers Breakdown (On A Lovely Day)
A remixed version of the band’s current single which is out now on Reptile Music.
