Weekly Shoegaze/ Dreampop / Psychedelic / Indie Tips #25

Picks Of The Week:

  • Italian shoegaze/wave outfit from Genoa, GAZED “Whole” from s/t EP

Low profile Italian ‘Working Class Wave’ band blur the line of post-punk, new wave and shoegaze with obsessive warbling post-punk bass lines, thumping drums, abrasive guitar riffs and forceful yet endearingly hooky melodies, repleted with stark urgency and irrepressible punk energy. 

  • Sidney, Australia primitive garage rock band, ROSA MARIA “Tell The Devil” from the upcoming album “Here She Comes” on Third Eye Stimuli Records

Sidney‘s rock n rollers will make you want to sell your soul to the devil wonderfully meshing slices of ’60s R&B, fuzzy riffs, infectious grooves, surf hooks, soulful vocals and loads of fun into quality garage rock of the highest order. Check out the video for more goodness here.

  • Australian post-punk /shoegaze quartet from Adelaide, DRAINING “Just Leave” Library Group Records‘ 10″ vinyl reissue of debut Self/Titled EP originally self released August 25, 2017.

One of the best debuts of the recent years gets its 10inch vinyl reissue by Library Group Records. Just 3 songs filled with gloomy guitar driven shoegazing ‘sad punx’ sound, as obscure and fascinating, as they are somber and visceral, defined by an outstanding guitar work veering from jangle melodies, razor-sharp energic riffs and searing excruciating leads anchored by punchy drums and dismal deep basslines over forlorn vocals, a must-buy for every record collector.
