Weekly Shoegaze/ Dreampop / Psychedelic / Indie Tips #3


  • Italian lo-fi/jangle pop/dream pop solo project WAKE IN JUNE ‘13.5’ new single

Italian one-man-band delivers an irresistible swirl of melancholy jangly sparkling guitar melodies, meandering deep post-punk-ish bassline, and jaunty rhythms over fragile vocals, in a bouncy interplay of dark and light, that will warm your pop heart.

  • Hemet, CA post-country/slowcore band (formerly known as Ambersmoke), Grave Saddles “Cloudpunching” new single                                                                                                                                                                    

In the wake of fellow 90s Californian Idaho, yet more sluggish and slow, Hemet collective unfurls noisy abrasive guitar distortion that ebbs and flows as slowly taught basslines and reticent dragging drumbeats sadly meander around relentless, desolate, weeping croons and whimpers, delving into dazed depths of the existential spleen.

  • California indie/psych-pop singer/songwriter Soft Shelter “Time (Pressure)” second single ahead of Soft Shelter’s debut EP.                                                                                                                                                   

The sophomore single from talented L.A. based singer/songwriter shows a refined, haunting, contemplative quality, characterized by a shimmering, groovy, intense, slightly psychedelic-charged, guitar work with a distinctive 70s flavour, varnished by ho-hum, monochrome vocals reflecting upon the unimpressive nature of love.
