As We Leave

Four friends from the Isle of Wight merge Blur, Beach House, the La’s and their own shared history to produce a an EP packed with glorious acoustic shoegaze anthems.

It is with unbound pleasure that we premiere the new single ‘Expo 88’ from the magnificent Anatomy Class – one of our much beloved antipodean bands coming out of Melbourne. Anatomy Class’s forte are Himalayan mountain range-sized jingle jangle pop melodies with an anthemic force, and it has been more than eight months since we …

Apparently the first The Brian Jonestown Massacre album in three years has distilled ten tracks from more than 60 recordings made over the years during the COVID lockdowns in singer/songwriter/guitarist Anton Newcombe’s Berlin recording studios. And the result is concentrated goodness, recalling some of Newton’s best material from over the decades. With less experimental sonic …

Fuzzy guitar lines, tight …

We are very proud to premiere the new video by Sydney band The Shrugs for their poptastic fuzz blast of ‘Shoebox’. The Shrugs combine creative forces and a swaggering posture to produce a effervescent indie pop blast that adds a sixties bubble gum flavour to the intensity of bands like Pixies or The Breeders. In …

Melbourne’s finest sonic architects BADGERS are back with another fine example of luscious shoegaze dream pop in their new single ‘Bad Dreams’, and we are honoured to premiere their new video for this rich and euphoric track. BADGERS (who we last met way back in 2020 with their brilliant single ‘Why Am I Your Only …
