Lowry Lane

Track:  New Waves From: Lonely War (album) Label:  Self released Out: Now
Built to Spill style subtle fuzz meets the more gregarious melodies of the Surf Curse sound. This solo project of Regensberg (Germany) based, Paul Friebe, hits all the mid-90s fuzzy jangle notes.

Oh Black Sea

Track:  Taxi FromTaxi (single) Label:  Self released Out: Now
Slack stringed twang, fluttering jangled lead and the perfect level of lo-fi, hazy fuzz, that takes it towards the cooler edge of slacker-pop, without ever losing its bedroom-pop credibility!

The Aerosols

Track:  As Clean As Smoke Gets FromRoom For Wrong (album) Label:  Self released Out: Now
Juxtaposing the best of Dunedin Sound dulcet riffs, to the most subtle of psyche-pop[ inflections, this instrumental track is typical of the melodic brilliance of this San Francisco based foursome.

Hooper Crescent

Track:  Best in Town FromBest In Town (single) Label:  Spoilsport Records Out: Now
This Brunswick (Australia) quintet course late 80’s Gang of Four / Wire twanging riffed fraction, through a post punk veneer and ramshackle jangle rock element. It’s an incessant mix of sounds and totally enthralling from start to finish. For fans of alt.jangle.

Lucie Too

Track: シワの種 Shiwa no tane FromFool (album) Label:  Thistime Records Out: Album out 08.12.21
Japan’s finest fuzzy, jangly, garage rockers, Lucie Too, are back with this brilliant dynamic single from their forthcoming ‘Fool’ album,

Faux Canada

Track:  Fuck It, It’s Christmas FromWaiting For Christmas (single) Label:  Self released Out: Now
Obviously all Xmas music is an absolute, sickening nonsense. Unless of course it has the sentiment of this track and jangles with a sweet, dreamy, Snail Mail essence like this one !!!

The Blue Evils

Track:  If I Am Not Tall From: If I Am Not Tall (single) Label:  Self released Out: Now
The Blue Evils is the solo project of California’s Ryan Cain, who meshes everything from De Marco style surf-pop, gaze riddled textures and distorted crooning vocals into a whirl of post-punky jangle. A superbly original aesthetic.

Bad Spring

Track:  Left Alone From: Outside (single) Label:  Self released Out: Now
This Fresno, CA, duo of Cole Elliott and Kaeleb Dummar find the perfect balance between fuzzy Teenage Fanclub sweetness and Dinosaur Jr crunchy. Power-pop the way the power-pop gods intended !

Sports Club

Track:  I Thought (I Had It All Figured Out) FromI Thought (I Had It All Figured Out)
(single) Label:  Self released Out: Now
Somehwere equidistant between alt.folk, Modest Mouse propulsions and the dulcet riffs of The Bats, This Winnipeg foursome just have that beautifully languid feel to them that oozes melodic.

Lunavela

Track:  Pandering Meandering From: Imposter Syndrome (album) Label:  Self released Out: Album release date TBA
This single takes the Britpop sounds of Blur and courses extra jangled melodies through the sound, along with Baxter Dury style, engaging simplicity. Please be advised I am issuing a definitive ear-wrorm warning in relation to this track from Auckland’s, Steve Mathieson (former Collapsing Cities)! 

Outlaw Boogie

Track:  Eyes Wired Shut  From: Eyes Wired Shut (single) Label:  Self released Out: Now
This track from London’s Outlaw Boogie (aka the recording project of Michael James Dent) takes twinkling 70s pop-rock meets psyche and twists the most precious of jangled riffs through its very core.
This is (probably) the final single from a busy and stellar, last 12 months for this act and gives us reason to believe the 2022 EP will justify every follow button pressed !!!

Wax Atlantic

Track:  Sunday From: Sunday (single) Label:  Self released Out: Now
This acts Spotify bio is merely populated with the succinct line “Melancholy in Major key’, which is so perfectly apt. Washing The Beatles style melodies through a Warren Zevon style vocal delivery, this is jangly, 70s pop rock at it’s best.

Nagoon

Track:  Blueprint (For A Broken House) From: Blueprint (For A Broken House)
(single) Label:  Self released Out: Album release date TBA
Swirling, dreamy, Harlem style contempo pop, juxtaposed with fluttering jangled riffs, that drive the track into whatever beautiful direction the mood takes it. A truly stunning mix of sounds from this Swedish threesome.

Springworks

Track:  Electrocutioner’s Tale  From: Electrocutioner’s Tale (single) Label:  Self released Out: Now
This Dave Beaman and Ryan Rollison project courses Ariel Pink washed out textures, through the subtle, dulcet melodies of the Dunedin Sound. A truly engaging and original sound.
