Weekly Shoegaze / Dreampop / Psychedelic / Indie Tips – June #24-21

  • Liverpool, UK slowcore /shoegaze /dream pop project of Matt Suter, aka Violent Dreams “Hold On” from Fall” EP

London based soloist sets aside any previous distortion and noise to craft a cinematic, moody and immersive 5-tracker of an intimist noirish allure, blinding fragility and intense evocative strength, as moving as they are innermost corrosive, laced with subdued restless, shadowy and narcotic moods, graced by ethereal, nostalgic reverb-dusted layers of soft shimmering winding guitar melodies, serene airy breathes of wistful synths, and smooth dragging drum beats, sway drearily around the bittersweet introspection and brittle caress of the confessional vocal’s saddened breathless fears. Heart-warming, barely whispered helpless disillusion and emotional torment, from the most intimate and fragile dimness of the soul.

  • Austin, TX-based dreampop /shoegaze duo of Daniella Martin and Thomas Blank (Vet Trip), Wybercron “Your Call” (Single)

Austin swirling dream-pop duo draw dazzling emotional spirals and ornate crystalline liquid flow of fluttering glittering guitar melodies, trotting beats, airy bright keyboard drifts, and sinuously pulsing silky bass lines to carry coy, ethereal floating female vocals and sparse husky male back-ups, once again headily enveloping us in an intimate cascade of warm ecstatic bliss.

  • Belarus post-rock one-man band from Minsk, Da Voile “Train To Tokyo” from “Aestiva Die Pluviae” (EP)

Atmospheric, throbbing and cinematic post-rock from Minsk with the guitar clearly in the foreground along the support of electronics, and a steady rhythmic section, in a precious balance of the parts, alternating moments of mesmeric and crystalline melancholic introspection with soaring surges of seething tension that lead towards airy expansions, allowing the sound to explode in all its emotional dizzying emphasis and intense reverberated depth.
