New EP From September Girls

New EP From The September Girls

Drawing inspiration from the likes of Phil Spector, The Velvet Underground, The Cure, My Bloody Valentine and The Jesus And Mary Chain, the September Girls play reverb-soaked noise-pop of the finest order.

They first came to our attention at the start of the year with their excellent debut album Cursing The Sea, (see our posts here) and we thoroughly enjoyed their set at the Great Escape in Brighton.

Now they are back with a brand new four track EP of dark-hearted pop smothered in drenched feedback, entitled Veneer. Each of the four tracks is written and sung by a different member of the band.

Have a listen to the title track.

New From Communions

Communions spawn from the same four-wall rehearsal spot as Iceage and Lower – and from under the same roof as most of the local new punk, industrial and synth scene in Copenhagen, Denmark.

This track, So Long Sun, is the A side to a 7″ coming Nov 10th on Tough Love and it’s a keeper.

Have a listen.

Introducing >>> C. Strøm

Introducing >>> C.Strøm

Imagine The Carter Family and Daniel Johnston are emigrating to Europe, taking with them only their instruments, their songs, and an old tape recorder. They end up in Northern Norway. That’s how you have to imagine C. Strøm’s music: American folk in low-fidelity!

Listen / download I Have Heard Of A Land, the title track from his new album below, and When We Go A-Hunting. Order the cassette from Bandcamp here.

New Darlia Single

Here is the latest single from Blackpool three piece Darlia, titled Stars Are Aligned and it may well be their best release to date. While it sacrifices none of the heaviness of earlier releases and the rumbling, bruising riffs are in place, there is a more refined, more confident touch with the melody that elevates it from the merely good into a whole new league altogether.

Have a listen.

New Video: Vomitface – Sloppy Joes

Jersey City’s Vomitface have released their debut music video for the track Sloppy Joes, from their self-titled EP released this summer!

Shot in the backroom of Revival Vintage in Hoboken, NJ, the video is both an homage and incisive send-up of the traditional performance video—the band wanted to be “completely reverent and irreverent simultaneously.

Watch and see how they managed it…
