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.
Track: Enough From: Zero Summer Label: Self Released Release date: pre order now for 25 October 2019 release
Fragile Sarah Records style jangly indie-pop made relevant for the 2010’s. The most anticipated album on my follow list at present.
Track: Sound of Moving From: Without Colour Label: Moon Glyph Release date: pre order now for 25 October 2019 release
Web of Sunsets / Candace songstress, Sarah Nienaber does the debut album thing with dreamy indie-pop grace and beauty.
Thousand Yard Stare
Track: It Sparks From: It Sparks (single) Label: Self Released Release date: 27 September 2019
These Slough based legends of the 1990’s are finally back with their first new music in two and a half years. As always this is grumbling guitar pop majesty.
Track: Somewhere From: Somewhere (single) Label: Space Shower Networks Inc Release date: September 2019
First new music in nearly a year from Japan’s jangliest dream-poppers.
Track: Love Goo From: Love Goo (single) Label: Self released Release date: 13 September 2019
York (UK) track taking on the Melbourne laconic janglers at their own game and adding horns to win it. A wonderful bed partner for the previously released ‘Perfect Teeth’ single.
Track: Mrs Greene From: Who Wants Cilla (single) Label: Self released Release date: 27 September 2019
This superb 60’s inflected pop vignette just reminds the 2.5 years that has elapsed since their previous ‘Kits and Cats and Saxon Wives’ album is way too long.
Track: Sing, Don’t Shout From: Sing Label: Self released Release date: 25 September 2019
Another superb single following on from April’s ‘Pretty’. Brilliant fuzzed up jangle with Morrissey / Alec Ounsworth vocal theatric and dramatics.
Track: Inner Voice From: Pictures Label: Dangerbird Records Release date: 20 September 2019
If Grandaddy embraced extra jangle and a reduction of tempo, whilst simultaneously keeping an eye on the cool crown…Cones is what he could have been!
Track: Party From: Lp Label: Six Tonnes De Chair Records Release date: 13 September 2019
Think Psyche rock with urban surf sensibilities, that is best played in the smokiest of tiny venues…and you will be in a similar ball park as this truly original Belgian/Franco act.
Track: Mothers Day From: No More Frontiers Label: Self released Release date: 27 September 2019
Lo-fi Nap Eyes temp meets Adam Green style jangly anti folk in tracks full of contrived everyday irrelevances that are strangely/immensely alluring.
Black Sea Dahu
Track: Rhizome From: No Fire in the Sand (EP) Label: Mouthwatering Records Release date: 27 September 2019
It’s been a long time since urban folk has been this beautiful…this jangly. A stunning follow up EP to the wonderful ‘White Creatures’ debut album.
