The Post Last Bandcamp Friday Saturday Mix

Blue Tomorrows, who feature Sarah Nienaber from Candace in their line up, have released a new single and it’s their first in almost a year. Violet Shine mixes psychedelia and dream pop with the result sounding a bit like a cross between Spacemen 3 and Stereolab. Brighton’s Dreams of Empire have released an acoustic cover … Continue reading

Luby Sparks – Somewhere (Robin Guthrie Remix)

I must admit that the original version of Somewhere by Tokyo based Luby Sparks, which was released last month, did not do much for these ears. However I noticed it now has been given a make over by the Cocteau Twins Robin Guthrie so I delved in. Guthrie reduces the epic guitar sound of the … Continue reading

Chasms – Shadow (Public Memory Thundershower Dub)

The opening track from the recent The Mirage album gets an even “dubbier makeover”.

Sounding like it’s been heavily inspired by Saint Etienne, the track is … Continue reading

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

Records I Like Top 10 2015

2015 was the year I listened to the shoegaze and post punk revivalists in earnest. Club AC30 and Manic Depression Records both deserve a mention alongside the usual cohorts of Dufflecoat Records and Oddbox Records who delivered their signature brand of indiepop, diy and noise pop. I also started listening to full albums again with … Continue reading

Star Horse – Slower Now (Remixes)

I mentioned Star Horse and their excellent Slower Now single last month. It’s now had the remix treatment courtesy of Thunberg and LTZA. Both mixes concentrate on the vocals which stood out on the original and highlight them to great effect. The former is upbeat, almost dancey in places but it’s the latter remix I … Continue reading
