Another Bandcamp Friday with way too many purchases to write about. So here is another one of those Youtube playlist “thingies” that went down pretty well the first time around covering ten new single/EP track releases. Enjoy! Dreams of Empire … Continue reading How I Feel…………………
DAODA – Through the Veil I have not heard New York’s DAODA for a couple of years now. I am not sure how I missed last year’s Swimming single but have rectified that on the new one Through the Veil. … Continue reading A Tuesday Trio
Child’s Play is taken from the forthcoming album Morning Thoughts that will be released in May via Luxury Records. If you are a fan of the band you will know what to expect but if not Child’s Play is a fine example of the epic sounding indiepop the band create so well. Morning Thoughts is available in a range of formats and can be pre-ordered from here. Facebook Continue reading Agent Blå – Child’s Play
Swedish band Agent Blå’s penchant for producing indiepop which could easily fill a stadium given their sound shows no sign of abating on latest single Another Reason To Cut Off An Ear. Vocalist Emelie Alatalo’s voice is as epic as the accompanying soaring guitars giving the song a haunting and dramatic feel. It’s also the lead track from their new Vinyl EP Medium Rare which was released this past Friday. Get the single (with an exclusive b-side) and/or the EP from the band or the label, Luxury Records or; Kanine Records in the States, Through Love (Germany) or 2670 Records … Continue reading Agent Blå – Another Reason To Cut Off An Ear
A mix featuring 12 excellent tracks that have yet to be featured on the site. Here is the Mixcloud blurb: This latest Records I Like Mix covers a lot of ground over the course of its 33 minutes. From the opening gentle twee and indiepop sounds of Girl Ray and Those Unfortunates to the intense shoegaze of Kindling and Devilish Dear. How about some epic sounding indie pop from Agent Bla, Holy Now and the Death Of Pop going up alongside tracks from Brunch Club, When Nalda Became Punk, Supermilk, Kitty Kat Club and Early Riser. It’s all here. Enjoy! … Continue reading Something For The Weekend? A New Mix!
This week’s pack of three centres on three releases from Swedish artists. Lamagaia – Aurora This is epic. 16 plus minutes of krautrock /space rock/drone or whatever you want to call it. It sounds like my favourite Loop records on repeat. Available on 12″ vinyl from Sunrise Ocean Bender. Or get it digitally. Homepage Agent Blå – (Don’t) Talk to Strangers Another slab of indiepop from Agent Blå. It didn’t grab me in the same way as the previous single Strand managed to. However, it’s still a fine track none the less. It just sounds a bit out of place. Maybe there … Continue reading Something For The Weekend? Three From Sweden
I mentioned Agent Blå ‘s excellent Strand single at the end of last year. Now the flip side of that 7″ has appeared digitally for the first time and it’s another fine slab of driving indie pop complete with guitars that buzz around the vocals with unabashed abandon. It’s very very good! Buy the 7″ from here. Facebook Continue reading Agent Blå – Frustrerad
Strand by Swedish band Agent Blå is one hell of a tune. It’s a rousing, driving track bordering on anthem like proportions. As the advert goes…….. if indie pop bands played stadiums………… It’s been out digitally for a while now but is available on 7″ from Luxury. You can order it from here. Facebook Continue reading Agent Blå – Strand
