My name is Pond,Swan Pond

Here’s the fab Swan Pond from Boston “experimental, electronic, sonic” outfit – Violet Nox. Deep electro beats, ethereal vocals, jangly guitars and a masterful display in feedback control .What’s not to like here. Lots of SWITS out of 10.

Black Kids are back kids.

Black Kids – Obligatory Drugs By complete chance I decided to look up Black Kids today and nearly fell off my chair when I saw they had actually released something new. You see I completely adored this band’s debut album. I think it’s one of the greatest records ever recorded containing a run of singles…

Enjoy Monoplasma in stereo

Monoplasma – No Me Intimidas This is Monoplasma and a track called No Me Intimidas and it’s off their latest album 1. I found this on a Mexican playlist I subscribe to but I’m pretty sure these guys are from LA. Either way I’ve no idea what they are singing about but it’s a great…

Distant Creatures deserve some features

Distant Creatures – A Friend’s Halo More than pleasant for me this is as catchy as hell and if I’d heard this back in 1990 then this would have been the tune to get me into the whole Sockgaze scene.Off to check out the rest of the album. Distant Creatures are from Washington DC. The…

Nothing Weak about this tune except for the title

Blushing – Weak From Austin,Texas here’s Weak by Dream Pop/Shoe Gaze (Shoepop anyone??) quartet Blushing. Yep Cocteaus and Lush influences are evident but this is a fab pop song in it’s own right. Love the tempo changes and wonderful arrangements. Vocals,Rhythm and Guitars all gel together perfectly. These guys are ones to watch. The single…

Super World Indie Tune De Lux

De Lux – 875 Dollars Sooooooo I don’t like to compare but if you’re looking for a reference point I’m getting a Human League/Cut Copy vibe of this track and it’s superb from De Lux. This is a taster from forthcoming album More Disco Songs About Love due out in January via Innovative Leisure records….

I can’t split these tunes

Sofia Bolt – In Bear Suits (split single) – Falling in Love / Breathe In Breathe Out 2 for the price of one is what you get here with Sofia Bolt and In Bear Suits split single. Well worth the money too – these are powerful indie guitar pop tunes. Take an aural peek (I…
