We thought you might like to hear some of the songs that have dropped into our inbox this week, so here is a selection that caught our eyes and ears…
The guys behind the fantastic Marshall Teller records have announced details of a new 7″ single. The single will contain three new songs, with Drip Haze heading the proceedings in all it’s fuzzy, six-minute glory. The release will be a limited run of 250 records, all screen printed by the band and friends. To celebrate the release Colours and Sexbeet will be hosting a release party at the Shacklewell Arms on the 2nd March, with support from Dignan Porch and Yrrs.
Tear Talk are a four-piece from Liverpool. Their debut EP came out this week on Bleeding Gold Records and is a rather lovely slice of nostalgic, shimmery rock music that reminds us of Galaxy 500. Which is never a bad thing. The EP is called Port Sunlight and you can hear a few more tracks – and more importantly buy the whole thing – from the Bleeding Gold Bandcamp page here.
Hailing from Wolverhampton, teamABC released their Complaints EP back in November. The band make energetic and heady indie-rock, very much in the stlye of Johnny Foreigner and Los Campesinos! Stef from the band is currently writing their debut full-length album and we should be bringing you some more news on this soon, so if you like what you hear then stay tuned.
Saturday Night Gym Club
This is the title track from the bands up-coming EP, which is set for release on March 5th. The background chatter and lush electronica is reminiscent of Saturdays = Youth era M83. According to the official blurb, “The band self-produce all of their material, sending parts of the music via email, threading it together to concoct dreamy textures that swell and glitch, something that they describe as “an electric blanket for the soul.” Lovely stuff.
A rather lovely cover of M83’s Midnight City from New York-based Emil. His debut album – recorded as Emil & Friends – is out now in the US and Japan and, if this is anything to go by, is well worth checking out. Head over to his site for full details.
