Good stuff coming out of our ears from every direction at the moment. Here’s a little round-up of eight of the best of them. Download them all below.
First up we have punky psych-rockers Cult of Youth with a taste of forthcoming album Love Will Prevail (out September on Sacred Bones), this is Man And Man’s Ruin.
Keeping the noise levels in the red are Talk Normal with the hypnotically brilliant Bad Date, taken from forthcoming album Sunshine (Joyful Noise Recordings) .
Meanwhile keeping the groovy, 60s psych vibe going are People’s Temple with their new single on Hozac Records, Looter’s Game.
Taken By Trees have announced a new album Other Worlds (out on Secretly Canadian) and Dreams is the first single from it.
We loved the first taste of Thurston Moore’s new project Chelsea Light Moving (Matador Records) when we heard the track Burroughs. The next instalment comes in the shape of Groovy & Linda.
Brooklyn’s TEEN flesh out a sound of languid, lo-fi psyche pop redolent of Paisley Underground bands like Opal and Rain Parade. Since releasing an EP in April 2011, they have steadily honed their sound and readied their first long-player, In Limbo, which will be released via Car Park Records. This track, Electric is a perfect example of the density and layers of the band’s morphing keyboards, driving synths and jungle drums while letting their finely arranged vocals sit gloriously on top.
You Kill is a fuzzy, jangly delight from Eternal Summers that could have been transplanted from the indie heyday of C86 et al. It is out on Kanine Records on the 24th July.
And lastly Crooked Cowboy & The Freshwater Indians showcase a psychedelic whirlwind tinged with an unattainable nostalgia for a western era of dusty corrals and one-horse towns. Annalog And Her Hopeful Diaries is the title track of their new EP on Neurotic Yell Records, and also features Lisa Papineau.
