Now in its second year, Houston’s Ethereal Fest launches this Saturday, January 19th, featuring a solid cast of Texas shoegaze and dream pop luminaries. Tickets for a nine-band bill are a bargain at $10 presale, $12 at door. With known names (well, known to our listeners anyway) like Glare, Angel Aura, Dottie, Processions, Daze, Fun […]

It’s got to be an embarrassment when the year is less than two weeks old, and the album of the year is released. Surely could have allowed others to catch up? No, Tallies dropped their self-titled debut album on Hand Drawn Dracula, and suddenly everyone else is on notice. This capable crew mines a vein […]

We’re simultaneously programming while building out the new website, coming soon. Possibly malnourished and slightly lightheaded. So what? This is what we signed up for, and we wouldn’t have it any other way. This weekend were chuffed to trot out the fresh sounds from Elsa (pictured above) whose new (and possibly final as a full […]

I won’t begin to pretend this is fully functional. Have had hands in code from Canadian HQ, San Francisco, Austin, and Central California, and it’s at least moderately functional. There’s still much build-out to be done before we implode our older imprint, but the hope is to make the site more engaging and easier to […]

Another year draws to a close, one last chart show to celebrate the stellar sounds 2018 has provided us. From 16 October to 1 December, we gathered votes from our listeners, and all the feedback we’ve received, and these are the standout tracks for Winter of 2018. More gorgeous jewels of shoegaze and dream pop […]

So much fresh this weekend, so many headliner-worthy releases. Along with the new single from Blushing, we’re repping the amazing new album from The Alisons (pictured above). This Kingston, Ontario three-piece is making a joyous noise that simply demands your attention. We’ve finally got hands on the new Single Lash LP, released today on Holodeck […]

If we’re late, it’s not a shock. So much new music this week, compiling and recompiling playlists for your consideration should come as no surprise. From the return of station favorites Balms, Contrast and Indoor Voices, to fresh gems from Kero Kero Bonito, Lilac Melt, Manon meurt, Chasms, Darksoft, Did You Die… we’re well overbooked. […]

Up to date with the new releases, right up to those with today’s date stamp. We’re pushing the newest music from Sydney/Melbourne’s Key Out (pictured above), teasing their forthcoming album. We’re thrilled to get hands round the new, complete EP from 波卡利甜 Pocari Sweet, who’ve teased us in the past with their glorious sonic swells. Plus […]

Thrilled to offer a video premiere for a project we weren’t familiar with, Starframes. It’s a warm and welcoming slice of electronic dream pop, with a classic bass line that will get your toes tapping immediately. Certainly started involuntary staff dancing in these studios! “Rising Wall” is the third single excerpt from Nicht Vergessen, the […]

If you know us, you know Wildhoney. We’ve been bumping these incredible sounds from Baltimore since their first official EP, released back in 2013. They’ve only grown in stature and musical prowess ever since. From Seventeen Forever to Your Face Sideways, to their first full length LP Sleep Through It on Deranged Records, Wildhoney is […]
