The Sunday Post-Punk Session

The Dreams Never End are from Lisbon and this song was originally recorded for the Polis Noire compilation by Portuguese label Z22 which, not for the want of trying, I cannot find anywhere. Vai is a slice of synthpop that edges further into darker territory as the song progresses with some swirling, haunting keyboard sounds … Continue reading

The Post Last Bandcamp Friday Saturday Mix

Blue Tomorrows, who feature Sarah Nienaber from Candace in their line up, have released a new single and it’s their first in almost a year. Violet Shine mixes psychedelia and dream pop with the result sounding a bit like a cross between Spacemen 3 and Stereolab. Brighton’s Dreams of Empire have released an acoustic cover … Continue reading

Fawns Of Love – Someday (Robin Guthrie Version)

Robin Guthrie has recorded and mixed The Fawns Of Love track Someday from last years Permanent album which I said was ripe for a remix when it first came out! It is somewhat ironic as I have always thought that the band had a bit of The Cocteau Twins about their person. Guthrie has always … Continue reading

Belfast band Sea Pinks may have well released their final recording in the form of the Crocuses EP.

The sun has gone in and it’s p*ssing it down in London Town. Time to get stuck into more tunes resting on top of my digital back pile. Fowl Science hail from Toronto and, judging by the lack of anything else listed, The Flowering Eye is their debut release. The song is a catchy mix … Continue reading

The band’s sound is a mix of shoegaze and psychedelic rock with the odd … Continue reading

Their contribution to the single Changing … Continue reading
