Pinkshinyultrablast – Songs

Back in 2015 when Russian band Pinkshinyultrablast were recording their second album Grandfeathered they also recorded the 15 minute long Songs. They did not have the chance to put it out until last week during Bandcamp’s fee waiving day. Sounding like a medley of the bands finest moments it includes ethereal shoegaze, noise, electronica and some ambient bites too. A “sound” journey if there was one!

Pinkshinyultrablast – Find Your Saint

What a tune to come back to after a three week break. The new single from Pinkshinyultrablast could well be the sound of the Cocteau Twins if they were recording now instead of thirty plus years ago. Despite slimming down to a trio the band sound more expansive here. Mixing Shoegaze and dj beats alongside the vocals of singer Lyubov this is fast becoming an instant classic to these ears. Wonderful. It’s out on 1st September via Club AC30. They play both London and Oxford in October on the 20th and 21st respectively. More details here.

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 efforts from The Chills, Beirut and Robert Forster being high on the recommended list. I am still catching up with my backlog though and being heavily played these past few weeks are the likes of Appendixes and Tomiji. So without further ado here is my … Continue reading Records I Like Top 10 2015

Pinkshinyultrablast – The Cherry Pit

The Cherry Pit is the second single taken from the new album Grandfeathered which is due out in February 2016 on Club AC30.

And I haven’t even mentioned the mosh pit finish! The Cherry Pit will be available on 7″ vinyl and digital formats. Pre-order it from here. You can also pre-order Grandfeathered here.
