Anajunno – Fuegoinvierno

It’s turning into an Argentinian themed weekend! Anajunno hail from Santa Fe, Argentina and Fuegoinvierno, which translates as Winterfire, is the follow-up to 2017s self titled debut. Anajunno’s music is primarily dreampop, but they also delve into other spheres. For example Julia Knows flirts with psychedelic pop whilst the instrumental Generador de pruebas is an … Continue reading

Chasms – Shadow (Public Memory Thundershower Dub)

The opening track from the recent The Mirage album gets an even “dubbier makeover”. There were plenty of parts in the original that were ripe for remixing and the Public Memory Thundershower Dub brings those elements right out of their shell with the vocals sounding more pronounced alongside the enhanced, heavier percussion. Nicely done! The … Continue reading

Something For The Weekend? Three, Maybe Four, From Bruxelles

Continuing my recent exploration of music released in the past three months tagged as Brussels or Bruxelles on Bandcamp. Route 77 – Route 77 Post-punk yesterday and some punk today in the shape of this self titled effort from Route 77. There are seven songs with the longest rolling in at 01:52 which may give … Continue reading

Newscaster – Rumours

Plenty of weird and wonderful sounds inhabit the two tracks that can be found on this experimental sounding release. There is art-pop, post-punk, dub, psychedelia and even a bit of drone/krautrock. The music invokes memories of the likes of Can, Talking Heads, Scritti Politti and XTC. If that is the effect Newscaster are after then … Continue reading

Alles Club – Décollage

The instrumental title track opens the proceedings with post rock guitars merged with voices recorded from the TV or radio. It blends into another eight minute plus track in the shape of Quanto Tempo which … Continue reading

Tiny Magnetic Pets – Radio On

Radio On, which features ex Kraftwerk member Wolfgang Flür, originally appeared on last year’s Deluxe/Debris album and now has been released featuring a number of remixes to support the Dublin based band’s continued touring in support of OMD. The original version is very poppy and whilst their are some nice bits it’s not a keeper … Continue reading

Haiku Salut – The More And Moreness

I cannot say Haiku Salut have ever rocked my world despite their impressive lamp show. The More And Moreness was a recent single and one I have recently discovered. And it’s ace, sounding like a cross between the BBC Radiophonic Workshop and New Order 1982/83. And if that isn’t enough there is also a rather … Continue reading

August Round Up #2

It’s been a bit quiet around here recently so let’s rectity that with a few tunes. Citrus Clouds – Golden Sun Reverb heavy indie/dream pop from Arizona and follow up to last years excellent Ultrasound LP. Facebook Deaf – Shards I really enjoyed Deaf’s Truancy single and Shards carries on in pretty much the same … Continue reading

Dead Little Penny – U 4 Me

U 4 Me is a song that crosses the genre borders willy nilly and sounds like Curve, The Cocteau Twins and Lamb amongst others. Nice to see , I mean hear, a band that isn’t constrained by what this or that should sound like. And Hayley Smith’s vocals are fantastic! Get from here. Facebook

Freakscene London 2014​/​2016 compiles that label’s output for the years – well you guessed it – collated from their vinyl and flexi releases. There are tracks from the likes of … Continue reading
