EP: Passion Pusher – Keep My Thoughts

  If Passion Pusher has been too loud or noisy for you in the past, this EP might be more your style.  Emphasis on might though.  This is still Passion Pusher which means that the fuzz and uncontrollable sounds are just as important to the music as his tunes are.  It’s just that on Keep My Thoughts the noise is all …

mp3: Hunck – Toy Trucks

Now that BlueHost has managed to get us back up and running again, it’s time to post some music at a semi-regular pace again.  To start things off slow we have this slow-burning track from UK band Hunck.  “Toy Trucks” is a gorgeous slice of guitar rock that takes its time to work its way into your brain.  Where it …

mp3: Day Ravies – Reality School

“Reality School” is rainy day music from the australian garage-rockers Day Ravies.  Female and Male leads trade vocals across the dreamy track that fades out in just under 2 minutes.  Despite the short length, Day Ravies manage to pack all sorts of gorgeous guitar tones into the track that shuffle between twee-chimes to shoegaze woozyness.  It’s pouring outside right now …

mp3: The Death of Pop – Sun In My Eyes

Although their name might suggest someone more serious or sinister, The Death of Pop aren’t a band interested in completely redefining your idea of what music can be.  In fact, “Sun In My Eyes” is a pretty awesome jangle-pop/shoegaze song that sounds like something Stone Roses might have made.  July is almost over but we still have a full month …

mp3: Dream Koala – Ocean

Our homeboy and all around cool dude, Dream Koala (who we interviewed in the fall) just played the Boiler Room in London yesterday (for those of you that couldn’t tune in it was really really awesome) and today he just released his first all-original song since his Blur EP.  On Blur and in his live shows we saw Dream Koala beginning to …

mp3: Astronaut Husband – Spatial

When I’m going through our email in search of some good new music, I honestly tend to start to look for things that wow me within the first few seconds.  Astronaut Husband did not do that.  Instead, Astronaut Husband opens up his new EP Supergiant Blues with the three minute slowburner “Spatial”.  Although I could have easily skipped through the song …

mp3: Honeyslide – Black Dolphin

Over the course of our extraordinarily impressive career as music taste makers, Terence and I have seen plenty of lo-fi rock bands fade into the endless obscurity of non-relevance. However, one band that only seems to get better with each new track is UK shoegazers Honeyslide.  Pulling on clear influences from Sonic Youth and My Bloody Valentine, “Black Dolphin” may …
