Beat the delete #0020 (new music recommendations)

New music submissions (‘new’ classes as less than a month from release) arrive at JPH from all sources, including band members, promo companies and the various follow buttons that I have clicked over the years at the various streaming sites etc…the following are among my  favourites that have  ‘beat the delete’ button in the last week.


Band: Garcia Peoples

Track:  One Step Behind (single edit) From: One Step Behind  Label:  Beyond Beyond is Beyond Records Release date: Flyer single out now, vinyl on pre-order for 17 October 2019 release date

New Jersey’s finest de-constructed psych-pop band cling defiantly to Men Without Hats hooks and the weirdest of country rock/prog rock inflections. A truly original vibe.


Band: Sugar World

Track:  Sad in Heaven From: Sad In Heaven   Label:  Self Released Release date: 25 August 2019.

The jangliest lost The Catherines track you will ever hear…wonderful indie-pop!


Band: Foliage

Track:  To Tell You: I Love You From: Take   Label:  Z Tapes Release date: 20 September 2019.

Manuel Joseph Walker has been a long time Janglepophub favourite over the last few years and this bouncing jangle gaze does everithing to augment him as a constant preference.


Band: Possible Humans

Track: Aspiring to be a Bloke  From:  Everybody Split  Label:  Trouble In Mind Records Release date: 02 August 2019

Freeform jangle rock that never loses it’s foundation of crisp, typically Aussie, muted riff clarity. Twist that around the fractious anxiety of Pylon / Wire type bands and it is a truly original vibe.


Band: The Cry

Track:  Why? From: Why? (single)   Label:  Self Released Release date: Out Now.

Early 90s cult band (for some reason their sound was adopted by the skateboard fraternity) back with a single to remind us of of their brilliance. Let’s hope it is more than just a teaser?


Band: Make Sure

Track:  I Thought I Could Do Better Than You From: Take   Label:  Self Released Release date: 16 August 2019.

Janglepophub wibbled on furiously about sometime Fiery CrashSummerooms man Aubrey Jackson (aka Make Sure) back in early 2018 when we featured his 2017 ‘ Town Runner’ EP …finally he is back with a sort of laconic jangly The Decemberists style (without the whales and faux Irish accent) that offers the listener a place to immerse themselves.


Band: Delilah Fang

Track:  Trespasser From: Lonely Once Too   Label:  Self Released Release date: 25 August 2019

Minneapolis 5 piece have produced a debut EP of beautiful swirling dream-pop that reminds me intsantly of a more laconic L I P S…well worth pressing the Bancamp follow button for.


Band: Rush to Relax

Track:  Drugari From: Rush to Relax  Label:  Look Back and Laugh Release date:  09 September 2019

Slovenian outfit who I literally know exactly nothing about, apart from I love the guitar work on this flyer single. Album releases in a couple of weeks and I will be all over it like a cheap suit in the hope of more of the same.


Band: Darren Hayman

Track:  First Flush, Second Flush, Autumn Flush From: Songs of High Altitude  Label:  Self Released Release date:  09 September 2019

Give Ex Hefner man Darren Hayman any non descript topic (for instance the colour grey) and the chances are that he will have covered it already in a track or made it the subject of a demi-concept album in the last 15 years of his solo career.

Always intriging, often jangly, this is likely to be the latest Hayman brilliance that draws funds from my wallet.


Band: Tired Eyes

Track:  Drowned in a Bottle From: Drowned in a Bottle  Label:  Self Released Release date:  30 July 2019

Sheffield (UK) have a beguiling mixture of fluttering guitar-pop and limited shouty The Bluetones / Brit-pop inflections. It is all very insistent, all very British and all very good. Be great to see where they go next and as such the Bandcamp follow button is well and truly pressed!


Band: Peach Pyramid

Track:  Wear Sunscreen From: Bright Blue (single)  Label:  Oscar St. Records Release date:  20 September 2019

First new music since this Canadian threesomes lovely Repeating Myself album. Thankfully a similar mix of jangly dream-pop and luscious contempo pop seems to be the adhered to if the lead single is typical of the forthcoming EP.

If you like these tracks/bands/releases please support them in all fiscal and social media sharing ways possible…let’s help keep them around for as long as possible !
