Big Summer – Drones

The music of Porto’s Big Summer has not appealed to me previously but I have to say the new single Drones is very impressive. The title suggested a kosmische undercurrent to the song and that holds true as the band sound, on this one at least, like a Portuguese version of Big Les Byrd. It’s … Continue reading

Dummy – EP 2

Dummy’s first EP was something of a triumph as it blended various styles together to create a telling moment. Can they keep it up on their second EP? Why of course they can! EP2, which is mostly home-recorded using freeware and a smartphone, opens with the slow-burning Thursday Morning complete with some lovely effects from … Continue reading

Flip side It’s Getting Heavy flirts with religion, … Continue reading

VIM – Waiting EP

I have been Waiting er looking forward to this EP since the title track dropped last December. The first four tracks here are excellent examples of shimmering and ethereal dream pop. The songs swirl like no tomorrow and closing ones eyes they present hazy, shady and mottled imagery. The female vocals are softened, calming and … Continue reading

This weeks pack of three features three bands that mix psychedelia with shoegaze. Star Glows – Spiderland Spiderland is taken from the band’s forthcoming album Stargaze Rock ‘n’ Roll. It’s dreamy, spacey and is one hell of a head nodding tune. The aforementioned album is out later this month in vinyl and digital formats. Pre-order … Continue reading
