Weekly Shoegaze / Dreampop / Psychedelic / Indie Tips #30

  • South Yorkshire jangly noise dream-pop duo Weedipus “Broken Boy” second single

After last week’s enticing jangle flavoured debut single, Barnsley‘s duo reply with a ’90s-tinged energetic lo-fi intersection of grunge and punkish noise elements, that pulse and hum like a seething flow of subdued distortion, around round dreamy, intense female vocals echoing reverb hums, releasing in a hectic rush.

  • Stoke On Trent, UK based, early 90s lo-fi indie punk threesome originally from Newcastle on Tyne, made of long-term bassist Christine Rowe and vocalist/songwriter Pete Dale plus drummer Emma Wigham (Witching Waves), Milky Wimpshake “You Make A Nice Piece Of Art” from the upcoming 12″ vinyl LP “Confessions Of An English Marxist” via Bobo Integral

UK cult veteran indie punk band return, after a long 5 years hiatus, with unadulterated racketing energy and distinctive dry melodic flair, peppered with usual jagged satirical lyrics, through a less than 2 minutes new single unravels in bittersweet, dry, sparkling jangly guitar melodies mixed witty sarcastic male vocals long in loving appreciation for art and creativity.

  • Paris new wave/coldwave/dream pop band FIASCO “L’Ennui (Hyacinthe cover)” new single via In Silico Records

Beloved Parisian 4-piece Fiasco are back with a surprisingly distinctive take on a track from local rap artist Hyacinthe, instilling sad, harrowed moods wept in broken crystalline guitar melodies, humming synths, and dark disquieted vocals, that meander sullenly in alluring French coldwave gloom.
