A New Year, a New Website

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 […]

Blushing – The Truth

We’d always understood Austin’s Blushing had all the elements necessary to break through: songwriting, performance, personality. From SXSW showcases, to their star turn at this year’s DreamGaze ATX, it was simply understood that Blushing is poised to advance to top-tier status in the genre. If you’re only just now waking up from a year-long nap, […]

Video Premiere: Starframes – Rising Wall

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 […]

Streaming Premiere – T. G. Shand

A lot of folks were brokenhearted about the dissolution of the brilliant Australian band Miniatures. We would know, we were top of that list. By all accounts the breakup was amicable, geographic changes were the primary factor in the collapse of Miniatures following the release of their critically-acclaimed Jessamines LP on Saint Marie Records last […]

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 […]

Up-to-the-minute fresh tracks, we’re loading in even as we share the new musical jewels. The final pre-release single from NIIGHTS (pictured above) is perhaps the most compelling from the forthcoming album, and it’ll grab and shake you, even if you’re prepared to be shaken. We’re flush with new music from Wyldest, LLOLLYANNA, cmfrtble, Grabbel and […]

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 […]

We are fully overbooked for the weekend, filled beyond capacity with the newest releases. No matter that we broke the website twice in the last week, lost a month’s worth of data, pushed our first three-hour Mixcloud-only special in the past week… all of that is tangential to the point: we’re flush to the gills […]

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. […]
