Weekly Shoegaze / Dreampop / Psychedelic / Indie Tips #10  


  • Indonesian C86/new wave/indie punk/indie-pop duo THE SENSITIVE “World Is Evil” title track from the singles compilation album “World Is Evil” on Dismantled                                                                                                    

Collecting year one of THE SENSITIVE recording activity, “World Is Evil” is a wonderfully fresh and impassioned approach to the ’80s British indie-pop/new wave sound delivered with raw punk attitude and a fair amount of urgency through 7 (plus 2 impeccable cover versions) intoxicating yet shambling and abrasively affecting melody-drenched pop tunes you will instantly fall in love with.

  • New Cross, London, UK indie jangle-pop DIY partisans The Hannah Barberas “Hurry On Home” from the debut album “Into The Wild” on Spinout Nuggets / Doo Lang Records, on limited CD via Subjangle and limited cassette via Gazer Tapes.

An impressive dizzy display of DIY pop freshness, unique creativity and sonic variety, along with melodic prowess, flowing seamlessly through jangly harmony-filled wonders, Northern Soul inflexions, eager 60s flavours, passionate bluesy and garage tones and laid-back acoustic folk sensibilities to create an absolutely invigorating sounding stellar debut throughout.

  • Sheffield, UK indie/shoegaze/synthwave/dream pop trio, Rehearsed living “Mirror Fog” new single           

Charming, sparkling indie rock with a glossy 80’s Mancunian quality, made up of twanging bassline, waving icy airy synth, sharp guitar riffs and irregular rhythm pads over plaintive vocals for a tune you immediately feel comfortable, infused with an irresistibly familiar sound, which you would never get tired of.
