MM Shorts 623: Saint Agnes

A short while ago we posted the new single from cinematic psych outfit Saint Agnes, titled A Beautiful Day For Murder. Now we have the b-side Where The Lightning Strikes - a blues stomping, dirty rock n roll number with psychedelic organs, screaming guitars and haunting harmonica.

And we have the video for you, with a stream of both the a and the b-side for you.

Introducing >>> Daddy Issues

Introducing >>> Daddy Issues

The excellently named Daddy Issues are an all girl trio producing a twisted, distorted take on garage-pop that drips with acerbic irony and a healthy dose of cynicism.

Ugly When I Cry is a wonderful slab of downbeat grungy pop that we’ve had on repeat ever since we heard it!

Stream it below, or grab it for a buy-now deal at Bandcamp.

Fossil Cliffs – Wake Me Up

All the way from Halifax, Nova Scotia, Fossil Cliffs is the new solo project from Mike D’Eon.

His debut, self-titled EP is an inspired collection of tracks from the jittery start-stops of opener Summer Sun, to the pop-rock stoner sludge of In My Eyes, and the jangly washed out guitars of Cold, it is an eclectic opening statement tinged with reverb and honesty.

Check out Wake Me Up below.

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.
