Rebelling against her classical upbringing, Anemone band leader Chloe Soldevila traveled the globe, where she immersed herself into the psychedelic traditions of Southern California and the punk/new wave scene from France, to which she returned home to Montreal with a clear vision of wanting to form her own band.

The band’s debut album Beat My Distance (out in Feb) is a blast of ’60s-tinged dream pop wrapped around woozy psych via Melody’s Echo Chamber, Gwenno and Jacco Gardner.

Check out the latest track from it, She’s the One.

 

De Facto is the title of the new record from Lorelle Meets The Obsolete, it is the Mexican duo’s fifth album and was recorded at their home studio in Ensenada, Baja California.

It sits somewhere between the brave experimentation of the new Low album, Double Negative, and Tender Buttons-era Broadcast put through a psych filter. There are pure pop songs that come across like lost ’60s nuggets (Linéas En Hojas), blistering white noise jams (Unificado) and meditative incantations (La Maga) – and best of all, we have the video for the record’s ominously excellent, and disconcerting, opening track Ana below.

Norwich based quintet and self-styled doo-wop psych-rockers Gladboy have released their debut EP Egopushin’ via Trip-Sit Records.

There are some clear art-rock influences such as Talking Heads, early Pulp and of course, Bowie to the fore, but fans of Pavement, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, or the Fat White Family will also find much to like here. The five tracks delve into brown acid psychedelia, wobbly space-rock, Brit-pop whimsy and kosmiche Motorik rhythms to create a many layered, experimental sound that somehow retains a winning accessibility throughout.

Check out the excellent Sauer Kraut and Who Loves You, Mrs Parsons? from the EP below. Order from Bandcamp here.

 

 

Hanya are a Brighton two-piece whose lush layering and deep, sonic textures defy their simple set up.

Recalling Angel Olsen or PJ Harvey, Heather Sheret’s vocals can go from grit to honey, weaving extra layers and emotion into the band’s wall of sound. Her guitar like a one-person My Bloody Valentine – crunching riffs that recall early Black Keys and all backed by Jack Watkin’s expressive percussion.

The lead track from their debut four track EP I Used To Love You, Now I Don’t (out via Leisure Records on the 23rd November) is Radio. Stream it below.

Born (accidentally) in Canada, raised in Blackpool and now hiding in Melbourne, polarizing anti-genre artist Benjamin Shaw returns with a new long player Megadead.

Sitting somewhere between Smog and Four Tet, it is a wonderfully miserable album of disarmingly accessible songs filled with fuzz, brittle melodies, looping guitars, ‘80s synth, self-sabotage, self-doubt, violent fantasy and uncertain swagger.

The album will be released on the 31st August through Audio Antihero (US/UK) and Kirigirisu Recordings (Japan), it’s a wild amalgamation of his previous work, blurring burned-out lo-fi, electronic pop, glimmering keys, field recordings, aching words, layered noise and uncompromising experimentalism.

Check out first (free) single Terrible Feelings below.

 

No less than thirteen corking new tracks this week from the brilliant hypnotic post-punk thrum of FEWS to the infectious indie pop of Hater by way of a Ramones inspired Colleen Green, wiry art-punk from Public Practice, fuzzy urgency from Ron Gallo, raucous arena ready rock from We Were Promised Jetpacks, and sunburnt, pastoral psych from The Smoking Trees.
