"Releasing this album now feels like a weight off my chest, like every bit of frustration and nostalgic loneliness all leaving my body at the same time," concludes Wolf. "Making this record was the greatest therapy session I’ve ever had."

The new work draws inspiration from several different sources (greek mithology, marvel comics characters and others) and combines the dark and gothic mood of his previous band with ethereal and climatic instrumentation.
Between the end of Bauhaus and the beginning of Love & Rockets, David J recorded 5 singles, and 1 LP for Glass Records, and played on 2 albums by The Jazz Butcher. This LP, was and remains one of the crowning glories of the original Glass label, and has now returned to it's newest incarnation Glass Modern, on a long-playing record, remastered, slightly re-packaged and wrapped, for all you middle-aged indie kids and rock'n'rollers with one foot in the grave, and the other still tapping out that beat on the dive bar dance floor
of glorious memory. Closing the circle, old friendships renewed and maybe a few new ones born.

A distinctive presentation of lucid dreaming delivered with psychedelic splendor, defining a journey that while earthbound on this outing, will have listeners returning again and again for these nocturnal slumbers where sound is made up of colours, and the colours go on about defining and redefining an organic pastoral reflection that washes and ebbs effortlessly, filled with bewildering slow motion luscious intoxication. - Jenell Kesler

The Sunbathers splashed onto the scene in 2012 with a cdep and 7" on the sorely-missed Dufflecoat label, and immediately impressed us with their gentle and hushed seaside-themed tweepop in the style of the Marine Girls.

One's To Watch wrote "In 'Fantasy Du Jour,'...Cold Fronts delivers the same distinct, yet playful surf rock sound that has secured their fan base. Now, the band has released a video to accompany the song’s hypnotizing bass and melting vocals."
Third Man is absolutely ecstatic to be releasing the excellent live document of (Sandy) Alex G's Blue Room performance.

I wanna line my walls with photographs you sent
Of you lying in your swimsuit on the bed
Can’t live without your love inside me now
I’ll find a way to slip into your skin somehow
I wanna fuck your love slow
Catch my heart, go swim
Feel your lips crush
Hold you here my loveliest friend
I love to watch you when you’re trying on your clothes
& now you’re all I think about when I’m alone
Can’t wait to feel your love inside me now
We’ll have a drink or two & we’ll go to your house...
"The airy melody of the love song is soft yet strong, stringing together the messages of pain and memories of past relationships. With each lyric, the soft-spoken music group brings you back to that first moment of falling in love and the aftermath that follows behind it."
"Tender like your lover's hand wrapped around your ankle as he naps next to you on the couch; sad like that last fuck when you both know it's over; smutty because the private language between two is a code that keeps outsiders in the dark."

Scattered Clouds is the sound of post apocalyptic romanticism. The Hull, Québec experimental outfit manages to walk the razor thin line between cacophony and delight underscoring auto-fictional narratives with brooding rhythm, cavernous vocals, and precise noise. Terse retro-synthetic soundscapes call to mind the works of Vangelis or Tangerine Dream, paired with the uneasy ecstasy of Suicide or the tense, thundering underbelly of Liars. The fog and lo-fi static of their sound makes for a mood that is mysterious and entrancing, like neon-lights or driving down an unlit back road at night.

"It's a self-deprecating riff on tropes that marked music videos from the late '80s and early '90s, with exaggerated camera work and visual effects and paint splattering every which way for no particular reason," they said of the video. "It's done in such a way that it shows they know how obvious their influences are, and they can laugh at themselves about it - something useful when you're trying to navigate growing up."
Inspired by the ethereal 90s trip-hop movement/00’s downtempo society, spearheaded by Lamb/Portishead/Bonobo as well as her own involvement in the cinematic world of dance, Uma E. Fernqvist is setting herself up as an artist with great passion and a true eye for captivating rhythm, bringing together a mix of blissful instrumentation and pulsing percussion.

The Hunted Hare is the solo project from Dennis Kane, a composer and multi-instrumentalist from Washington, DC. His work is informed equally by early classical music, electronic and minimal music.
Debut album provides an enlightening experience, full of atmospheric, electro-pop waves
and sonic exploration; premiered on PopMatters
"With nostalgia at its core, Faded Blue is a clever coupling of psychedelic and dream-pop that effortlessly sinks its sonic sound into the minds of its listener, establishing scenes of the past that drift in and out of focus as the EP progresses."

All songs were written and recorded by Lachlan Denton, except 'Boundary Rider', which was written by Rober Forster and Grant McLennan. It appeared the Go-Betweens final album, 'Oceans Apart'.
A native of Northern Ontario, Reed has undertaken many creative ventures and this album, his second as a solo act, is the most recent. 'Dark Areas of Description', in comparison to Reed’s previous album The November Gales, is a journey through uncharted waters while simultaneously being true to his folk roots.
When speaking about the song, guitarist Larry LaLonde says, "To get the vibe of recording a Beanpole song, you have to place yourself in a secluded farm valley full of mutant hillbillies trying to recreate melodies that were found on a broken record of Disneyland ride music."

At its most abstract Cliffhanger is a sonic soundscape evocative of the soundtrack music of a 1960's John Frankenheimer thriller, these are set in contrast with touching and expansive minimal acoustic ballads included here. Still Smiling', 'Final World War' and Yamanoha's cover of The Misfit’s 'Hybrid Movement' are highlights on an LP which is both nostalgic and contemporary in equal measure.
