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 soothing the listener as waves of guitars and synths glisten. However I was not expecting the final track to divert from this path with the band showing a different side. The title may give some clues because Krautro is a droning Krautrock opus. Even at … Continue reading VIM – Waiting EP

Dummy – Angel’s Gear

Dummy hail from Los Angeles and Angel’s Gear is their first track. And it’s not a bad one to start with as it blends 1960’s psychedelia and pop. The vintage moog sound that runs throughout the song also gives it a Krautrock “feel” making not only one to nod your head too but also one for the dance-floor. Given the track listing on the artwork it’s safe to say a fully fledged EP will be coming along soon and based on Angel’s Gear I cannot wait to listen to some more.

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 excellent drone inspired track which reminds me of Eat Lights Become Lights. Another instrumental track Video 2000 is relaxing in a space rock sort of way. It’s the dreampop I prefer and the “poppier” the better. Both Burn The House and Salud temporal are cases … Continue reading Anajunno – Fuegoinvierno
