True Deceiver – True Deceiver


True Deceiver is the new project from lo-fi beatsmith Cars & Trains. The man himself had this to say –
“True Deceiver is something I’ve wanted to do for years: heavy, baritone guitar driven music sitting on a bed of electronic sludge and melodies, inspired by long time favourites like Godflesh, My Bloody Valentine, and Killing Joke. It’s all totally out of my comfort zone and I’m really excited to share it with you, finally.”
This is an excellent mix of shoe gazer, post rock, shoe gazer, drone, guitar lead music that is definitely worth a listen. Available now for free download!

Tycho – Montana

tychoFor nearly a decade, Tycho has been known as the musical alias of Scott Hansen, but with the release of ‘Awake’ – his second LP for Ghostly International – the solo project has evolved into a three-piece band. Reaching an entirely new realm of sonic possibilities recording with a live band, ‘Awake‘ is situated in the present, reaching Hansen’s vision of Tycho like never before. “This is, in many ways, the first true Tycho record”.
“Montana” is part indie, part electronic, with an upbeat shoe gazer sound, if there is such a thing? Vocals could easily sit on top of this music, but thankfully Tycho has let the music speak for itself. Giving you room to get wrapped up in the intricacies of sound and be taken on a refreshing musical journey. We look forward to hearing the album, out on the 17th of March.


Amores Vigilantes – Urayasu Girl ft Lyrics Born

lyricsI have to be honest here, I had not heard of Amores Vigilantes until this single hit my inbox.
The fact that “Urayasu Girl” features Lyrics Born and has been described as “Jay Z rapping with the Zombies”, really caught my interest.
Amores Vigilantes are a West Coast band, who have been compared to the likes of The Stone Roses, Mazzy Star, Fleet Foxes, Lou Reed and the Jesus & Mary Chain. The original version of “Urayasu Girl” featured on their 2009 album, “West Coat Kingdom”.
Now they have teamed up with West Coast hip hop legend Lyrics Born to create a truly unique sound. The best way I can describe it would be shoegazer soul, but not sure that really does it justice, the band themselves like to call it “Cherry blossom soul”.
Released on August 27th via Three Ring Records, the single features a “dancey” remix by DJ Squelchy, the more introspective West Coast Kingdom Mix, and the track “Six Weeks, Three Days, Two Hours (…and Thirty-Four Seconds)”.
This is a really unique track that I am really liking right now, plus it sounded great in the sunshine whilst I was on my honeymoon too.
