New Entry: Reardon Love Premiere New Single "Locked In The Panopticon"

Hull new wave/britpop band Reardon Love have premiered their new single "Locked In The Panopticon".

The is out today (April 30), and is a synth based 80’s Disco Pop track with a political and dystopian Orwellian message. Governments are becoming more totalitarian through the aid of media manipulation, subliminal messages and social media advertisements. Reardon Love’s mantra is to "champion the underdog, hail the outsider and liberate the falsely accused” and this single certainly backs that up.

Get it here and watch a lyric video below.


New Entry: Pinkshinyultrablast Share New Single "Songs"

Russian dream pop/shoegaze band Pinkshinyultrablast have dropped their their epic and ethereal 15-minute single "Dance AM".

The story: With vocalist Lyubov moving to LA, the band were deeply immersed in exploring new ways of composing and collaborating from a distance long before it was enforced. They tells us that "this one is kind of an oddball.

I think when we recorded ‘Songs’ we weren’t really sure what to do with this 15-minute-long beast, or if we will ever get a chance to release it. For some reason, this B-side feels especially dear to all of us. Possibly because it encapsulates a certain time of us existing together as a band, a very specific moment. We’ve been living in different cities for over four years now, and I think what I miss the most about us all being in the same place is the ability to regularly spend time together in the same room, practice, and run ideas by one another — just communicate and figure stuff out, side by side. I went to a Terry Riley show last December and he was playing with his grandson Gyan. They were sitting on the opposite sides of a really wide stage, pretty far apart from one another, separated by this giant concert grand - playing, pausing, improvising - and just kind of secretly smiling at each other from across the hall. When I think of the time we worked on this song, I think of those kinds of smiles, you know. It feels like hearing back a long conversation you’ve had with a dear friend a while back. Maybe you don’t agree with everything you’ve said back then, but then it doesn’t even really matter, because you know you were just able to truly relate."

New Entry: YACHT Drop "You Fuck Me Up" (Dub Narcotic Sound System Cover)

LA-based conceptual pop band YACHT have dropped their cover version of Dub Narcotic Sound System 2004 song "You Fuck Me Up".

The band's words: "This is a cover of "You Fuck Me Up," by Dub Narcotic Sound System, a lo-fi funk band named after the recording studio in Olympia, Washington, where many of our friends and extended Pacific Northwest community have recorded albums over the decades for K Records and various other satellite labels. The original vocal on this song is performed by the Olympia underground art-ward multi-instrumentalist staple Heather Dunn (Tiger Trap, Liarbird, Lois, Raincoats, The No-No's, Halo Benders, Dennis Driscoll) whose fantastic and loose performance taps into an undeniable, elemental horniness. It's very alive. "

"This music, and the larger constellation of music that constitutes its scene, has always represented, to us, the very fundamentals of punk. In its infinite capacity to miss the point, Pitchfork called this song "horrifically off-key" and "endlessly bad" back in the day.."

The band's words: "The song is at that kind of tempo which makes small dogs bob their heads gently. I once heard a story about how Steph Carpenter from Deftones used to run his riffs past his dog first before taking them in to Chino and the lads. Nice guy, and hey we’d all kill for a 9 string guitar wouldn’t we? Don’t lie."

"Sorry about that aside - this song sounds nothing like Deftones. It’s more like Yo La Tengo crashing a band practice by The Cure. maybe you’ll agree, but it’s ok if you have a different assessment. We’d probs love to hear it. Be nice tho ok."
