Starting The Week Sampler


A new week, a new job and a selection of new tunes to kick it all off. Really liking the albums from Pulse Park and Joni Île. It’s good to hear the Memory Girls track again after all this time. As ever, enjoy!

Here is the Playlist:

or listen on YouTube

Track Listing:

Films On Song – Still I Try

The new single taken from the forthcoming Sonatine EP. It’s a split EP with Work Wear and will be released via WarHen Records on May 06 2022. Pre-order from here.

Business School – Island Of The Pears

The title track of the brand new EP which is where jangle and dreampop collide.

Pulse Park – Sine Wave

Sine Wave is taken from the new album Phonac Music which is out now on Shore Dive Records. The label describes the band as “The perfect blend of Radiohead, Placebo and Joy Division”. Not grabbed a full listen yet but liked what I have heard and it sounds like the poppier end of the shoegaze spectrum. Apollonian Heart is certainly a wonderful track.

Memory Girls – Our Freedom, Our Darkness

Originally released ten years ago now via Too Young Records this wonderful indiepop track gets a reissue courtesy of the blue-very label and a new compilation EP titled A Young Person’s Guide to Blue​-​very featuring four acts from the label. Available from here at the usual way expensive Japanese prices.

Dottie – Flood

Austin’s Dottie returns with a beautiful ethereal shoegazing track. I cannot say more than that.

Beverly Kills – The Getaway

The Getaway is the first single to be taken from the Gothenburg based outfit’s debut album Kaleido that is due to be released via Welfare Sounds & Records later this year. An excellent pop song that takes in both dreampop and post-punk influences. It should appeal to fans of Wet leg.

Sinaïve – Ténèbres

A fine slab of noise pop that is taken from the forthcoming Super 45t EP that will be out at the end of May out via Hidden Bay Records, Arvo Discs and Hellzapoppin Records. Superb cover art as well.

Colatura – R U Content

The latest single to be lifted from the brand new album And Then I’ll Be Happy that is out now. You can get it from here.

The Earth Earth – Cider

Cider is taken from the Japanese shoegazers new self titled album that out is out now KiliKiliVilla. Very MBV like. The album includes a very 1990’s sounding indie dance remix of Peel Slowly and See.

Joni Île – Marions-nous

Marions-nous is a wonderful bedroom\twee pop song taken from the album Météorage which is out now on cassette and digital formats. Get it from here.
