A Brooklyn DIY super group of sorts, Public Practice combines members of freshly-dead punk project WALL and local pop band Beverly.

Their debut EP Distance is a Mirror, is a confident, juried testimony of love steeped in dark optimism. Dry, dead pan vocals chant over skittish guitar and danceable 70s grooves—songs snapping like rubber bands—see-sawing between post-punk and its insomniac twin sister disco.

Check out Foundation and Fate/Glory from the four track release below. Order from Wharf Records 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.

 

The wonderful David Cronenberg’s Wife (aka DCW) are back with a new EP, The Octoberman Sequence, which is due out via Blang Records tomorrow (digitally) and on the 2nd November on limited 12″ vinyl.

Key players in the UK’s antifolk scene in the late 2000s, we loved them for their black humour, sense of the macabre and twisted, often enjoyably bitter lyrics. Theirs was a perfect mix of oddball folk, punk sneer, crack-house discordance and krautrock grooves, and it is not too much of a stretch to trace their influence on bands like Fat White Family, Goat Girl and Phobophobes.

The new five track EP consists of live stalwart Rules and previously unrecorded slice-of-life vignettes such as You Should See and The Dude of Love.

It has been six years since we last posted about DCW. Welcome back boys!

Aussie indie rockers Wharves have shared their new single Mo’s Desert Clubhouse, a jaunty belter with ferocious guitars and spooky vocals. It is the second single off their debut EP Sooner or Later, which saw a release last Friday.

Stream it here.

 

Released in 2006, Ten Silver Drops, the second album from Secret Machines was one of our favourites of that, and any subsequent year. A masterpiece of spacey widescreen guitars, prog and krautrock, it was an album that was constantly on repeat.

Although the record has been out of print for more than ten years, Ten Silver Drops will be reissued on 180g heavyweight vinyl in expanded format with extra tracks. The limited edition release includes a bonus LP of B-sides and rarities from the Allaire Sessions making their debut on vinyl.

Amongst the B-sides is their cover of Gillian Welch’s Everything Is Free, which originally appeared on the band’s UK only single of All At Once (It’s Not Important).
