Droneflower is the new collaboration between MM regular Marissa Nadler and Stephen Brodsky (of Mutoid Man, Cave In). It will be released by Sacred Bones on the 26th April.

As might be imagined, it is a sprawling and expansive exercise in contrasts – the sound of the war between the brutal and the ethereal, the depths of darkness and piercing light, and the real and imagined.

The ten tracks include eight originals and two covers – the epic Guns n’ Roses power ballad Estranged, and Morphine’s beguiling In Spite of Me.

For now though we have For The Sun for your listening pleasure.  You can pre-order the album via Bandcamp here.

 

Having made our Best Of lists for last year with the brilliant Twelve Divisions Of The Day, Leeds based Drahla have announced the release of Useless Coordinates, a debut ten track album that will see a release via Captured Tracks on the 3rd May.

Stimulus for Living is the queasily brilliant first taste from the record. All their wiry, naggingly insistent post-punk credentials are firmly in place for a writhing, sinuous track that is equal parts hypnotic and unsettling.

Bodes well for the full album – listen below.

 

Psych-stalwarts Brian Jonestown Massacre will release their 18th full-length album on Anton Newcombe’s own A Recordings label on the 15th March. The self-titled nine track record comes just seven months after their last one.

This is Tombes Oubliées from it. Rather tasty…

Nots Announce 3

Nots have announced details of their new album, 3. It is (perhaps unsurprisingly) the Memphis band’s third full-length, but also their first as a trio.

Half Painted House, is the lead single and manages to be both hypnotic and seductive at the same time, without sacrificing any of their queasy post-punk goodness, squally guitars or reverb drenched vocals.

Listen to the single below. The album is out on the 10th May via Goner Records. You can order a copy from Bandcamp here.

Another cracking track from Fontaines D.C.’s upcoming album Dogrel.

This is Roy’s Tune, it showcases a more reflective side to the Dublin foursome, but it is no less powerful for all that.

Watch the video here.

 

We never quite finished off our regular weekend post and already we have had new songs from the wonderful Felice Brothers, Mountain Goats and Mac DeMarco amongst others this week. So what the heck, why not mash ’em all into one (lazy) post of some great new tunes from the last 10 days.

So we have.

  1. Cabbage – Torture
  2. Felice Brothers – Poor Blind Birds
  3. Big Thief – UFOF
  4. Mac DeMarco – Nobody

A few tasty videos and new songs for you. From the meditative melancholy of The Tallest Man On Earth, the biting psych-pop of She Drew The Gun and Steve Earle’s latest tribute to Guy Clark to the more raucous end of the spectrum and the pummelling post punk of Crows, Taco Mouth’s fiery take down of Trump, some brilliant Stooges style rumblings from Black Futures, experimental electronic punk from Sistertalk’s debut single and irresistible garage pop from Honeymilk.

Enjoy…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We’ve already posted a couple of excellent tracks from Lonesome Shack’s new album Desert Dreams and now the band have shared New Dream and a video for the record’s title track.

Both are more top notch examples of their raw, bluesy Americana, New Dream is gentler, akin to a pastoral gospel-style backwoods boogie while the title track is built on the back of another insistently hypnotic, swampy riff. The album is already shaping up to be one of our favourites of the year.

Watch / stream them below.

 

 

 

Here is a second taste from the upcoming album Cruel Child from Viking Moses.

The dusty, wistful Kid For The Cattle can be filed under your Electro-Freak-Folk tab in iTunes… stream it here.
