DOWNLOAD: The new single Myth from Beach House

Great news this week that Beach House have a new album on the way and even better that they have decided to share the first single with everyone. Myth follows the blissed out, hazy dream pop template that the band has developed across three full length albums.

The new album Bloom, will be available in Australia through Inertia on May 11 on CD, double-LP, and digital formats. Internationally the album will be released by Sup Pop (USA), Bella Union (UK/Europe) and Arts and Crafts (Mexico).

MP3: The Twerps | Dreamin’ from the forthcoming LP…

Melbourne’s The Twerps have a debut self-titled LP coming out next month on the back of a string of impressive EPs. You can check them out over at their BANDCAMP page and below you can check out the track Dreamin‘ from the new record. Reminiscent of the slacker indie guitar pop of bands like The Clean and The Chills alongside numerous 90s melody rich indie strummers. Pretty infectious stuff…

The Twerps is out October 14th via Chapter Music in Australia and Underwater Peoples in the USA.

NEWS: MP3s of new tracks from M83 and Girls…

Anthony Gonzales , the man behind M83 has been crafting the followup to 08’s Saturdays =Youth and the good news is that a double album titled Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming is set to emerge blinking into the digital world in October. The first song Midnight City is already doing the rounds and you can hear/download it below – devoid of much of the 80s faded nostalgia angle the last album took with a stronger synth/dance/pop feel…

Girls are also releasing a new album Father, Son, Holy Ghost due out on September 9th via Pod/Inertia here in Australia and the first taster is upon us. It feels m ore soulful, expansive and less naive than the band’s exceptional debut. If this is what we are to expect from the album then it promises to be another gem.

VIDEO + MP3: Thurston Moore | Benediction + Circulation

Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore has a new Beck produced album coming out on May 24th via Matador titled Demolished Thoughts. His last solo record Trees Outside the Academy was a brilliant collection of intimate and mainly acoustic songs and going on this first listen with its hushed mood and swooning strings he may have exceeded the high standard he set on that release…

You can also grab a free MP3 of the track Circulation which is apparently about the menstruation as explained by Moore:

“Circulation is about menstrual cycles, menstruation blood, and the year 2012 when the Goddess of Destruction, the Goddess of Creation and the Goddess of Nurturing all come together and rise as Isis to bring the Earth to a new Matriarchy. We’ll of course be in bed, drinking wine, smoking cigarettes and playing scratchy jazz records on a turntable on the nightstand.”

NEWS + MP3: Boris to release 3 new albums…

Hot on the heels of their BXI collaboration with Ian Astbury, Japan’s brilliant Boris are set to release two albums on the same day – April 26th. Sargent House is a new label for Boris and they have the honour of releasing the new albums Heavy Rocks and Attention Please. They are also set to release a third New Album in Japan only which will feature new songs plus new versions of a couple of tracks on Attention Please.

Don’t get confused with the band’s 2002 album Heavy Rocks, this is an entirely new record which apparently they’ve used the same title as it “seeks to redefine ‘heavy’ music in a culmination of the band’s tireless efforts over the past two decades”.

Attention Please, will feature guitarist Wata on vocals throughout – a first for her as she has previously only sung here and there on album tracks. Grab an MP3 of one of the tracks – the string soaked and urgent Hope below…
