Van Chamberlain

Track: A.G.T FromIn the Sun (album) Label: Very Jazzed Records Out: Album out 28 March 2022
Neo-pysche that ensures every sunshine laden note, simply resonates with chiming jangle and a sense of all that is gloriously languid.

Lizzy and the Fanatics is the recording project of Montreal’s, Lysanne Picard, whose East Angus single was one of the singles of the year in 2021. This Deux Soleils track is off the now released EP and is jangly dream-pop and it’s most special.

Open Tab

Track: American Dream FromAmerican Dream (single) Label: Self released Out: Now
Perfectly ramshackle, fuzzy lo-fi, that takes the Mo Troper vibe and adds further individualistic obtuse and under-production, to make that wonderfully cool sound of those that don’t really appear to be trying too hard. Dolewave lo-fi if you will…

Boy With Apple

Track: Strawberry Boy FromStrawberry Boy (single) Label: Varo Records Out: Now
Dense, gaze-laden dream-pop that infuses sumptuous, jangled riffs, through it’s core. Think of the Lush end of the gaze spectrum and you will be in the right ball park.

Track: Reverbology FromReverbology (single) Label: Self released Out: Now

Justin Sullivan (The Babies / Kevin Morby) solo project that courses Dan Sartain Americana / Alt country pop vibes through Parker Longbough fuzz and earworm melodies to die for.


Track: Closer FromMoments of Ease (EP) Label: Sellout! Music Out: Now
Bouncing, chiming jangled riffs, augmented by indie rock muscularity and a slight sense of gaze distance in the production. One of those big indie-stadium sounds that you cannot help ‘moving’ too, from a Norwegian foursome who are not afraid to rock.

Scott Wingo

Track: Radio Fever FromMarvelized (album) Label: Self releaseds Out: Now
Scott Wingo is from the 80’s jangle-pop act Crippled Pilgrims, who recently appeared on the critically acclaimed Strum and Thrum… album out of Captured Tracks, that we reviewed last year…this perfect jangle is so reminiscent of that era and shows he has not lost it !

Saxon Jenkins

Track: Some One To Love FromSome One To Love (single) Label: Self released Out: Now
