Beat The Delete #0127 (weekly new music recommendations)
Thanks to everyone for joining us for Beat The Delete #0127, bringing you another dozen tracks of new music brilliance that we have received submissions for recently.
We hope you find a new favourite!
Track: The Billy From: Heat (album) Label: Crafted Sounds Out: Album out 24th Sept 2021
Glorious mix of The BVs style resounding jangle-gaze, psyche-pop haze and the swirling late 80s machinations of the best of the era’s jangly dream-pop. This is an album I have every follow button pressed for !
Track: Repeater From: Rollercoaster Man (album) Label: Self released Out: Now
Taking every detour possble between the sounds of Pavement and Guided By Voices, this New York based act consisting of Kieran McManus (main songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, vocals) and Andrew Williamson (drums and vocals), will appeal to those who love their jangle deliver to the left field side of centre.
The Freddie Princes
Track: Ivyskin From: Ivyskin (single) Label: Self released Out: Now
With the isolated distant production of the Harrison Whitford aesthetic juxtaposed with the most stunning jangled dominant riff, this is just the perfect introduction to this Canberra based act.
Track: Couples Therapy From: Neon Inoculation (album) Label: Mint 400 Records Out: Album out TBA
After the much publicized hardships that prevented this Baltimore based duo from recording for over 4 years, they are now back with more brilliant, incessant guitar-pop, that weaves finite jangled melodies through a subtle fuzz core.
The band is planning to release numerous singles off a forthcoming Neon Inoculation album that should be out towards the end of the year.
Just The Architects
Track: Off Shoulder From: Off Shoulder (single) Label: Self released Out: Now
Just the Architects is the Neo-Psychedelia / Indie Rock project of Paul G. Marchesani (AKA: Forest Kids Collective). Usually neo-psyche would be something of a swerve for this blog, but the jangled riffs that permanenty course through this tracks very core, make this essential listening for jangle-pop / psyche fans alike.
Track: Sunchaser From: Sunchaser (single) Label: Self released Out: Now
Perfect mix of Best Coast style dreamy psyche and Dum Dum Girls indie-pop left field, whilst always keeping one eye on the slightest of garage essences. It visits ‘everywhere’ but without any semblance of contrivance.
Track: Give It Hell From: Give It Hell (single) Label: Polyvinyl Record Company Out: Now
Christchurch, New Zealand, based foursome, who somehow manage to find the perfect and seamless blend of commerciality, Dream-pop and chiming jangle.
Track: Lady St. From: Guilty Pleasures Are The Best Ones (album) Label: Self released Out: Album out October ’21.
Choppy, ramshackle, jangle-pop that reminds me occasionally drifts of into a glorious Edwyn Collins / Orange Juice vibe. Brilliant work from this ex-Absent Boundaries man.
Track: Don’t Feel Too Special Buddy (She Dates Losers Like Us All The Time) From: Rom-Com (EP) Label: Self released Out: Now
Tinny jangled riffs are threaded through a fuzzy, lo-fi bedroom-pop, core. One of those tracks that just enthrals from start to finish, from this, Columbus, Ohio, based act.
Track: The Magicians Daughter From: The Fragile State of Eurphoria (album) Label: Self released Out: Now
Heaving with 12 string acoustic/electric guitar riffs and coursing a slight indie folk sensibility through a The Miracle Legion foundation, this project of Kalamazoo, Michigans’, John Abbott, will appeal to those with a traditional and/or college rock penchant.
Sam Plecker and Steve Stout
Track: Winnebago From: Winnebago (single) Label: Allswell Records Out: Now
This track is San Francisco flower-pop / indie-folk ,morphed into the modernity of slacker-pop. Impossible to stop playing once the worm snuggles into your ear! Steve Stout continues his amazing ØZWALD form, with this new project !!!
Track: Normandy From: Synthetic Lights (album) Label: Self released Out: Now
OK so I am pushing the boundaries of ‘new music recommendations’ with this being released in March 21, but this is one of the best jangle-gaze tracks of the year, mixing chime with gaze in perfect equilibrium.
