Coathangers & Nu Sensae Split 7"

Suicide Squeeze are releasing a split 7″ featuring garage rockers The Coathangers and uncompromising punks Nu Sensae. The former offer up the jagged, spiky sonics of Derek’s Song, while the latter’s offering, Throw, is altogether more harrowing –  a vicious and visceral pounding assault on the senses.

Limited to just 750 copies, you can pre-order one here.

Nu Sensae & Useless Eaters Split 7".

This latest release from the Volcom Ent Vinyl Club features Vancouver’s Nü Sensae and Nashville’s Useless Eaters. City of Night might be the longest Useless Eaters song to date and it’s slower tempo shows off the class at the heart of Seth Sutton’s songwriting. Nü Sensae dish out the type of grungy punk particularly favored in the Pacific Northwest with their track, Sleeping Blouse.

The Nü Sensae / Useless Eaters split begs to be played loud…available for one time only with a limited pressing of 1,000 on bright blue vinyl. Order here.

Have a listen.

A Massive Friday Mix.

The number of new releases has cranked back into top gear recently with a whole host of tasty ear ticklers coming our way. So what could be even better than an Olympic opening ceremony than a massive Mad Mackerel Friday mix – twenty four tracks handpicked especially for you.

We light the flame with buzzworthy punked-up noiseniks Fidlar and in the same vein another from Vancouver-bred trio Nu Sensae. We have new songs from instrumental folk experimentalists Balmorhea, another from Blitzen Trapper led country rock supergroup Denver, a third track of trademark guitar distortion from Thurston Moore’s new project Chelsea Light Moving, Jason Lyttle covering 80s pop experimentalists Talk Talk, and some lo-fi goodness from R Stevie Moore.

We have some infectiously angst inspired riffage from Big Scary, some infectiously synth inspired indie rock from Letting Up Despite Great Faults and some infectiously beguiling electro-indie pop from Scraps. We have a brilliant psych-pop nugget of mellotron led drone from The Most Powerful Telescope In The Universe and a couple of tracks of Woodpecker’s indie folk and banjo ramble including occasional bloodcurdling zombie screams.

We have the new Lowpines dustily defiant Americana single via the excellent EardrumsPop label, and the slow moving gospel melancholy and honeyed velvet vocals of Padraig Whelan. There is melancholy too in Eli Mardock’s atmospheric, but slightly more upbeat indie-pop, and Fountains give us a taste of epic, brooding indie rock that tips a wink to 90s shoegaze and is as good as anything new we’ve heard in a good while – play this baby loud!

We have Delta Spirit’s brilliant Tear It Up from their recent self-titled album, and the new one from prolific and quirky indie rock royalty Mountain Goats. There is singer-songwriter’s Sondre Lerche’s out-take from his soon to be reissued album Phantom Punch, and a new taste of Crystal Castles gothic dance moves with Plague.

And lastly we have the angular, jerky and irreverent new wave of The Modern Airline, the hypnotic pummelling of psych-dance-rockers Turing Machine and Mac DeMarco’s My Kind Of Woman, a brilliant driving anthem of garage-pop.

Enjoy!

Thursday Means Six More Of The Best!

Been a little while since we’ve rounded up a few of the best tunes that have found their way into our iTunes library recently. So, here is a great way to kick off your Thursday with six tracks gathered from our in-box and our favourite blogs.

First up is the brooding psych-rock of Creepoid and a slow burning track from Horse Heaven called Dream Out. Next, some wonderfully scrappy punk from Nu Sensae, and thirdly we have the first taste of Grass Widow’s planned new album Internal Logic in the shape of Goldilocks Zone.

We’ve posted the high octane garage glam of the Burnt Ones before and new single Meet The Golden One doesn’t disappoint, meanwhile Taffy’s bubble-gum style fuzzed up psych-pop is also a delight – try out Haah for proof.

Lastly we have a short, but pastorally sweet track of typically sun-dappled Americana from Woods from their new split with Amps For Christ.
