Here is a list of 2020 indiepop/janglepop/dreampop Christmas singles I have started to compile. Have you found any more worth a listen? Then let me know via the comments, please. Jetstream Pony – Grief of a (Frozen) Sailor/Hit the … Continue reading Jingle Jangle Bells
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 … Continue reading Here’s The Thing…………………..
Texan shoegazers Eternal Something follow up last years Realm//Zone EP with new track Seagoats. It’s another one of those shoegaze tracks that are inspired by poetic imagination and my mind wandered vividly as it played. I could listen to ethereal tracks like this all day long – well until the cow’s Seagoats come home. Brighton’s Dreams Of Empire have released their first new material since last years Nothing’s Ever Finished debut album. I am not sure if I have ever heard a song that references both the Sparks and Plastic Bertrand before but Broken Dreams does just that as it tells … Continue reading Everyday is Like Sunday
Sunday Records have released a free compilation called Shelter.

Here’s one that’s been pretty much on repeat all day. Sad in Heaven is one of those fuzzy indiepop tracks that will penetrate your brain given the number of hooks and earworms it contains. Despite the maudlin words the song just buzzes around incessantly even after it ends. I have no idea who San Diego’s Sugar World are or why they are so glum but keep this up and it will be good while it lasts. Marvellous. Facebook Continue reading Sugar World – Sad in Heaven
