The Myrrors will return with a new album Borderlands!, which is out on August 17th via Beyond Beyond is Beyond.

They have shared The Blood That Runs The Border, a masterpiece of slow burning, desert baked psych and drone that pervades and hypnotises the senses in equal measure.

Listen below, and order the album via Bandcamp here.

The Callas hail from Greece and are built around brothers Lakis and Aris Ionas. In 2016, the group collaborated with Lee Renaldo on a soundtrack for their film The Great Eastern, and they have teamed up once again on their upcoming LP Trouble and Desire due out October 26th.

The first single from it, Acid Books is out this week and its a post-punk burner brimming with frenzied energy. Opening with a swirl of droning ambiance and the rhetorical question, “Do you sleep at night?”, the track quickly launches headlong into a fever of activity. With the anxious pulse of a hard-driving bassline to lead the way, and punctuated by terse outbursts of hypnotic, scuzzed-up guitar lines.

If like us, you have a (great) degree of affection for The Velvet Underground, The Horrors, and Neu! then you’ll find much to like here!

Have a listen.

Whiplash is the new single from Stockholm based quintet Sudakistan – it follows the excellent Two Steps Back, and both are taken from their upcoming second LP Swedish Cobra. We’re looking forward to this one as we were big fans of their 2015 debut album Caballo Negro.

The new single features the band’s trademark brand of latino infused heavy psych, and some hypnotic spaced out grooves, bringing to mind the likes of Oh Sees and King Gizzard.

Have a listen, and check out the somewhat mellower (at least in parts), Two Steps Back as well.

Space rock legends Spiritualized have announced news of their new studio album, And Nothing Hurt, due for release 7 September via Bella Union in the UK/Europe and Fat Possum in the US.

The band have shared the brilliant lead single I’m Your Man, which wraps layer upon layer of gloriously transcendent sound together to create something utterly mesmerising and cinematic, and with a towering guitar solo – .where the waves of blissful noise are almost overwhelming.

Watch / stream it here.

 

At the tail end of last year we shared Drahla’s excellent track Silk Spirit, and now the Leeds three-piece have signed with Brooklyn’s wonderful Captured Tracks label and are back with a new single, Twelve Divisions Of The Day.

It is another naggingly insistent tune blending the band’s wiry art-rock with krautrock inspired experimentalism, all underpinned by singer/guitarist Luciel Brown’s captivating spoken drawl.

Love this. Stream it here.

 

black midi are an enigmatic new London four-piece that are building quite a buzz for themselves.

Taut, frenetic, inventive, and with an off-kilter sound that is so completely their own, it is hard to find adequate words to describe their first single proper, bmbmbm. The best we can do is some anarchic mix of Girl Band, Fat White Family and Scottish legend Ivor Cutler.

Make of it what you will, we sure as hell can’t… You can pre-order the single (a limited run of 250) from Speedy Underground here.
