Nevver – Nada Me Importa

Elefant Records connected a previous release of Nevvers to Felt’s Primitive Painters. For the blurb surrounding Nada Me Importa (Nothing Matters) the label connects them, when mentioning the track’s melody, to the likes of The Cure and New Order. I cannot hear the former but there is certainly more than a hint of the latter’s … Continue reading

Star Party – Demo 2000

Star Party were formed earlier this year to play “misty coastal rock music” which are their words, not mine. That description should be expanded to include C86 fuzz, punk attitude and garage pop because that’s what we have on this demo which features two original songs (I think) and two covers. The former consists of … Continue reading

Here’s The Thing…………………..

There was a raft of releases towards the end of last week. So much so that I thought another Bandcamp Friday was upon us judging by the number of emails in my inbox. So rather than write a post for each (I did say I wasn’t going to review anymore didn’t I haha) I thought … Continue reading

Stomp Talk Modstone – Only Illusion

What a fantastic romp the new single from Japanese band Stomp Talk Modstone is as it bounds around with unabashed abandon through alt rock and shoegazing territory. It’s the sound of the band at their catchiest and you could also say, despite the frenzied guitars, their poppiest. The female voice is a delight as the … Continue reading

Something For The Weekend? Three New Singles

This weeks pack of three features three just released singles. Death Of Heather – Hard To Cure Hard To Cure has been lifted from the band’s forthcoming debut album.

Spunsugar – Run

Swedish band Spunsugar have lifted a second single from their forthcoming debut album Drive-Through Chapel. Titled Run it’s a pulsating track that sounds like a cross between Curve and Swervedriver. An instant indie dancefloor (socially distanced of course) classic! Drive-Through Chapel will be released on October 2nd 2020 via Adrian Recordings. Pre-orders are currently being … Continue reading

Records I Like Mix – August 2020

Hmmm. These mixes are being pushed back into the middle of the month once more. I am not surprised given the quality tuneage on offer! So here we are once more rounding up releases from the past month or so with a couple slightly further back than that. Please use the search function to find … Continue reading

Cover Me…..

Weathering release their new single Chimera next month. Whilst it is not yet available for streaming the flip side, which is a cover of Depeche Mode’s Blue Dress is. I am not that familiar with the original but, after playing them both back to back, the cover wins for me. The guitars and the voice … Continue reading

Tilly Murphy, also known as FRITZ, has recently signed to Inertia Music and has just released her first single for said label. Titled Arrow it’s a fuzzy guitar-led pop song and deals with looking back at previous relationships, the resulting heartbreak and what came out of them whether positive or negative. Newcastle based (that’s Australia … Continue reading
