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 been one of my favourite remixes and he slows the track right down turning it into a dreamy, swirling ethereal track that highlights the lovely voice of Jenny Andreotti. It’s backed with a new track Never Sing For Joy which features resplendent Peter Hook style … Continue reading Fawns Of Love – Someday (Robin Guthrie Version)

The Sunday Session

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 of shoegaze, alt-rock and post-punk. The synths give the song an emotive feel as does the repeated chorus of “they’re calling; they’re calling”. The Shop Window follow up their excellent previous single Mannequin Lies with new single Reflection. To be honest it does not grab … Continue reading The Sunday Session

Something For The Weekend? Three New Albums

A belated pack of three this weekend highlighting three new album releases. Moscow based Neonic Sundrive have just released their debut album. Titled Lies Paradise it features 10 tracks including the two recent lead singles Taste Your Lips and Collapsed Stars. The band’s sound is a mix of shoegaze and psychedelic rock with the odd hint of garage throughout as evidenced on the excellent Can You Feel and This Side Down. It’s available digitally from the band. Portland’s Jangle popsters The Crystal Furs have just released their third album. Or maybe not as the band explain. “Beautiful And True is … Continue reading Something For The Weekend? Three New Albums

Boy With Apple – Green Eyes

Green Eyes is the new single from Gothenburg based Boy With Apple and is the follow up to January’s debut single Make Me Feel Needed/Living Space. Like the latter the new single is synth/keyboard driven dreampop ably supported by reflective guitars and intertwined vocals. The opening 30 seconds of synths is lovely to say the least. If you like your dreampop of the epic and expansive variety then I suggest you check this track out sharpish. Green Eyes is available digitally via VÅRØ. Facebook EDIT. If anyone finds that debut single in lossless formats please let me know via the … Continue reading Boy With Apple – Green Eyes

Secret Shine – Ember

New track Ember is the first new material from Bristol’s Secret Shine since 2017s There Is Only Now album. It’s also the first of five download songs the band have planned for 2020. These songs, along with a batch of half a dozen more, will form the new album due for release next year. So what about the track itself? If slow burning ethereal shoegaze is your thing you cannot go wrong with Ember as the band turn back the years once more. A perfect introduction for those planned songs and the album too I guess. Get it from here. … Continue reading Secret Shine – Ember

The Wednesday Mix

The Yearning has gone all ABBA on us as the new single Only When I’m Dancing demonstrates. The flip side Moonlight Fantasy errs on the side of disco. It all brings up images of wide lapels, flares, tassels, sparkling dresses and glitter balls. It’s very nice and fun too – check out the video. I wonder if they will move onto the 1980s next? When I’m Dancing is out now in digital formats via Elefant Records. Atlanta’s Bathe Alone has released six tracks since last September with new track In Deep being the latest. It’s an indie-rock track that tells … Continue reading The Wednesday Mix

The Tuesday Session

My inbox is still full of emails from the latest Bandcamp Friday fallout. Anyway here is a round-up post of sorts highlighting tunes that have got me through the day Russian bandMashmellow have released the second single to be taken from their forthcoming EP Someday Club which is due for release at the beginning of next month. Can you take a single from an EP? Oh well. Anyway Heaven is You still has that New Order guitar sound coupled with female vocals. A nice pop song! Brighton’s (or is it London now?) Empire of Dreams released a limited edition cassette … Continue reading The Tuesday Session
