Glad Sisifus is the solo project of the Slovak musician Nátan Mikletič, who provides a washed out, jangly ambience, that touches on the more beautiful parts of Swiss Portrait style of jangle-gaze/dream-pop and drowns it in a glorious sense of fuzzy melodic.
Dead Slow Hoot
Track: Until Your Breathing Drowns It Out From: Until Your Breathing Drowns It Out (single) Label: Philophobia Music Out: Now

Track: Boxing Day From: Boxing Day (single) Label: Contract Kill Records Out: Now
One of those rare acts that find the perfect blend between the heaviest of fuzz, reverb and simpering melodies that just about force their way to the surface. This all female, Oakland duo of Jade Alcantara and Grace Bennett have the potential to be modern day contenders for a Sonic Youth crown that no-one has quite managed to grab yet.
Track: Find it on the News From: Find it on the News (single) Label: Self released Out: Now
Equi-distant between Arctic Monkeys at their most Mardy Bum style melodic and the fluttering, chiming jangle of the The Laughing Chimes aesthetic. Indie Rock at its most precious, from this Manchester based five-piece.

Swirling, jangly dream-pop, that takes the core aesthetic of the Cocteau Twins and washes huge swathes of fluttering jangle through the core. A sumptuous haze from this LA based duo.
Track: Hide From: This Isn’t Where I Want To Be (EP) Label: Cross Ratio Entertainment Out: Now

Charlyne Yi and Lem Jay
Track: Stroll From: The Ghost (album) Label: Self released Out: Now

Track: Let’s Pretend From: Let’s Pretend (single) Label: Self released Out: Now
Washington DC four-piece, who mix the best of chiming jangle, surf pop and all of the melodic best that 60s ‘girl group’ had to offer. Everything you could want from feel good music, but infinitely cooler !!!
Track: Any/Either From: Any/Either (single) Label: Self released Out: Now
Staten Island based act, coursing the best of 70s pop rock persuasions through slight slight 60s inflected melodic riffs. Simply gorgeous.
Track: Or From: Still Flat (single) Label: Green Pick Records Out: Now
This 2nd single from the forthcoming Still Flat album, mixes bedroom pop, Built To Spill fuzz and the slightest of an Elephant 6 essence into the most perfect of slacker pop blends. Owen Kenney‘s bedroom-pop solo project at it’s finest.
No Suits in Miami
Track: Buffy From: Buffy (single) Label: Self released Out: Now
A mix of the Wedding Present wall of guitars and the introspective, late 80s jangly indie-pop of The Field Mice. A strange but, brilliant mix from Sweden’s ‘soon to be finest’ !!!
Dreams on Tape

Track: Headfirst From: Spectrum (EP) Label: Self released Out: EP out on 01.06.21
Slacker / lo-fi rock mix, that infuses fuzz and jangled riffs with an intermittent need to let those classic rock riffs fly. The solo project of Londoner, Kyle Nuss, this aesthetic is all manner of guitar retro muscularity.
Track: Echoes From: Echoes (single) Label: Self released Out: Now
Solo project of Frank Marino-Moore that revels in lo-fi loveliness and ambient sedation, created via isolated jangled riffs. Darkness / headphone music at it’s finest.
