It’s been entirely too long since we’ve heard from Vancouver’s Bridal Party – they’ve been quiet, keeping their heads down and working on the follow-up to Too Much, their 2019 debut album. When your touring plans go up in smoke thanks to a pandemic there’s nothing else for it, we suppose, but we’re delighted to …

With a digital debut album under their …

Brisbane’s Terra Pines take no prisoners in their brutal aural assault of a track, ‘Downbeat’. This is a thunderous insistent fuzzy rumble that rolls forward with intensity and purpose. And yet underneath the fuzz and the rumble, the melodies are sweet and yearning, a delicious amalgam of shoegaze and dream pop that captivates while clearing …

A MEETING of delicate pop like minds: musician-producers David Tanton (aka Rhoda/Tender Spring), Éloi Le Blanc-Ringuette (aka Thomas White), and Lia Kurihara (aka LIA) met on the fertile Montréalais music scene in 2018, began to share and mesh ideas, and formed Afternoon Bike Ride – and listen up, friends; they’re an absolute delight of hazy, …

There is no doubting the legendary status of Dean Wareham, whose band Galaxie 500 in the late eighties defined a gentle low-fi poetic brilliance and melodic genius that influenced and enhanced the shoegaze/dream pop genre. After Galaxie 500 burned ever so brightly between 1987 and 1991, releasing three landmark albums in the process, Wareham formed …
