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.

The shimmering folktronica of Sleepwalking is the latest track to be shared from Tunng’s upcoming album, Songs You Make At Night, and from their newly reunited original line up! The single was the first song the band’s co-founders, Genders and Lindsay, wrote for the album and was the initial spark that brought them back together as a band.

Chilean psych-pop duo The Holydrug Couple will release their new album Hyper Super Mega via Sacred Bones Records on the 14th September.

Their latest single is Waterfalls, a woozy, intoxicating ballad that dreamily meanders the paths and networks of classic 60s and 70s pastoral psychedelia with synthesised textures and modern production.

Have a listen.

 

We discovered this by AMERICAN NUDISM (aka Gabriel Gutierrez, former fronts person of LYSOL) on Soundcloud and don’t know much about the background. It appears to have been originally released back in 2016, and then is due for a re-release on the 22nd July.

Future 5-0 comes from a three track 7″ EP and is described as “sick synth-pop, imagine The Normal’s Warm Leatherette and a 1980s Sci-fi movie soundtrack.” It is just over two minutes of incessant, propulsive electronic krautrock and we’re liking it a lot.

Listen below and order the EP here.

 

After a too long absence, the Twilight Sad have shared a new single, the curiously titled I/m Not Here [missing face].

It’s a driving, motorik return, with wailing guitars and swirling synths circling around frontman James Graham’s repeated declarations of “I don’t want to be around you anymore.” Graham describes the track’s lyrical basis as being “about my ongoing battle with not liking myself, trying to be a good person but constantly feeling like I’m failing myself and everyone I care about.

It’s a fabulous return – stream it below.
