Fontanarosa

Track: Way In Out From: Are You There? (album) Label: Howlin Banana Records Out: Now
Reducing their previous lo-fi propensities with a full band sound, whilst never really losing the genre’s sparse sensibilities, this French foursome produce the most intense of strangely, jangly krautrock, akin to the Lewsberg aesthetic.

Ducks Ltd

Track: Head On (feat. Illuminati Hotties) From: Head On (feat. Illuminati Hotties)
 (single) Label: Self released Out: Now
Two modern day jangle-pop giants team up with predictably superb results. Already a contender for single of year?…I think so.

Assistant

Track: The Ballad of Assistant From: This World Could Be So Much Fun (album) Label: Self released Out: Now
Brighton based foursome that are back after a 15 year hiatus to provide us with this beautiful track and an album full of melancholy, jangly guitar-pop.

Van Chamberlain

Track: Heavy Cloud From: In The Sun (album) Label: Very Jazzed Out: Album release date TBA
Van Chamberlain always manage to find the sweet spot between saccharine commerciality, dream-pop and gregarious surf-pop riffs. A sound that will appeal to fans of many genres.

Jack Moody

Track: Butter From: Butter (single) Label: Self released Out: Now
For those of you that like the sound of acts such as Wild Nothing, RGV and DIIV who smudge the dividing lines between jangle-pop and post-punk, you may just have found a new darling !

Charts

Track: Double Vision From: Double Vision (single) Label: Self released Out: Now
In a world where a pastiche of all things ‘attempted The Beatles‘ has become the erstwhile pop-rock default mode, this solo project of Portland’s, Michael Rowan, slices that vibe apart and courses tiny 50’s pop melodies through masses of lo-fi cool.

Mr Floyd Larry

Track: FEELALONE (feat. AK4RI) From: FEELALONE (feat. AK4RI) (single) Label: Self released Out: Now
This Miami based act always manages to find a way of adding originality to the Community Swimming Pool style, jangly melancholy. This time the vocals of AK4RI add a haunting, pained ambience to beautiful effect.

Colatura

Track: Kids Like Us From: And Then I’ll Be Happy (album) Label: Self released Out: Album out 22.04.22
One of four pre-album release singles, this track walks this Brooklyn based down the jangliest, Alvvays style, jangle-pop path, they have ever been down. It suits !

Sooner

Track: Meaning From: Days and Nights (album) Label: Good Eye Records Out: Album out 25.03.22
One of four pre-album release singles that is typical of this Brooklyn based foursome beautifully windswept, jangly shoegaze. The album is out on Friday 25.03.22 and is an absolute ‘must’ !

Jaguar Sun

Track: Midnight Man From: All We’ve Ever Known (Album) Label: Born Losers Records  Out: Album out 22.06.22
Jaguar Sun is the solo recording project of Ontario multi-instrumentalist, Chris Minielly, who takes dreamy Panda Bear style soundscapes and augments such an essence with the most fragile of jangled riffs.

Public Health

Track: Smile From: Smile (EP) Label: Self released Out: Now
Taking flat stringed Pavement style riffs and adding a spurious sense of leftfield to the fuzz of Parker Longbough, this solo project of Philadelphia’s, Alex Moxham, will appeal to all those that love their jangled sullied by lo-fi, fuzzy waters.

Erin Harland

Track: Radio Silent From: As Long as We Make It (EP) Label: Self released Out: Now
Brooklyn’s Erin Harland takes the swirling beauty of the Lizzy & the Fanatics dream-pop and mixes it with the energy of early The Bangles style, jangly guitar-pop.

North Carolina’s Tiger Beach, offer the beautiful jangly end of early 90s The Cure sound and juxtapose it against the wiry anxiety of Bloc Party’s incessant energy.

Taking The Luxembourg Signal style jangle-gaze and adding percussive muscularity to the mix, this Olympia, WA threesome, add glorious rock edges to gaze soundscapes.

Young Prisms

Track: Outside Air From: Drifter (EP) Label: Fire Talk Records Out: Now
The bio release explains this aesthetic more adroitly than I ever could stating: “…introspective shoegaze and gauze-laden guitar earned them tours with bands like the Radio Dept, Dum Dum Girls, A Place to Bury Strangers and Moon Duo”.


Sean Buckley featuring The Shop Window

Maidstone jangle-meisters, The Shop Window, teams up with Mintball’s electronica maestro, Sean Buckley, to release the jangliest late era New Order track that New Order never released !
