We’re going BIG this weekend, with a lot of new releases demanding attention. Swervedriver’s new album I Wasn’t Born to Lose You is just the tip of the iceberg. We’re also heavily featuring a brand new candidate for #AOTY2K15, Seattle’s Winnebago with At Home, an album filled with lush, dreamy songwriting and a sound you’ll fall for. New music from Boca River (a little shimmer, a little shoegaze, a little psych, a POWERFUL punch). The new single from Dublin’s Princess, showing the evolution of an already impressive sound. And the first two singles from the forthcoming Westkust LP, Last Forever, now up on preorder via Bandcamp. Talk about evolution. Westkust is going to own Spring 2015.
So much more, we’re gonna start name-dropping: Cherry Crush. Mexico’s Carnival Animals. Did You Die, built on the ashes of the venerable Fantasyprom. Satsuma, with a 4AD inflected sonic feast. Angel Falls, with a sound reminiscent of classic Kitchens of Distinction. Wall of Stars. Alter. Jennie Vee. Kimono Lights. Brilliant Beast. Honey Frequency. Fury Things. mandarinaduck. Figmennt. Flashes. Cheatahs. And that’s just this week’s haul.
More: we’re long on the new Depth & Current LP Believe, as it’s probably their most consistently compelling release to date. We’re still long Venera 4’s Eidôlon, with all the simmering subtlety your ears can handle. We’ll keep pushing the new Airs/Nevermind Me split, because this needs to be heavy rotation in your brain. The Black Ryder, too, is your new spring jam. The new Spökraket LP In a Witch Forest, too, will grab your ears immediately. Salsa Cinderella, we’ll keep reminding you, one of the most impressive debuts of the year. And, again, there’s so much more to the weekend, it won’t all fit.
8 pm Eastern, 5 pm Pacific, and continuing through Sunday at midnight Eastern, 9 Pacific. It’s the first weekend we’ll spin some of these tracks, and may be the last weekend for some others.
