Joey Fourr

Ultra curious produce on offer from the ex-Tubelord man Joseph Prendergast glorying in the moniker Joey Fourr.

Patently a band that don't take themselves too seriously, we called Wrinkles previous release the slackest of all slacker pop and now we have nowhere to go. Again the ramshackle charm wins out.

The Nights

Last summer we took a shine to the 'After Hours' EP by Sydney outfit The Nights. Thankfully they have now followed it up with this slow burning demo 'Greatest'.


Divine hypnosis continues apace from Luka following on from 'Lowdown' with this cracker.

Palace Winter

A collaboration between Caspar Hesselager of My Heart The Brave and Carl Coleman of Sink Ships. This is the first single from their upcoming EP.

Winter Drones

Not content with membership of Still Corners and Hush Arbors, Leon Dufficy ploughs his own furrow to great effect as Winter Drones.

Absolutely Free

The soundtrack to a candlelit meeting of some 60s utopian sect or the new record from Absolutely Free. Either way its a beauty.

The Death of Pop

Further expert woozery produced by The Death of Pop, taken from 'Fifths' to be released by Art Is Hard on 28th July.

Wednesday, 16 July 2014


Tropical house music purveyed by New York producer Macsen.

Los Angeles Police Department

Lo-fi fragility all the way on this track taken from the debut LP of LAPD.


New London band V E N N possess the kind of driving, krauty aesthetic which puts me in mind of the criminally underrated Working For A Nuclear Free City.

Default Genders

James Brooks, once of Elite Gymnastics, has produced strong work under his new moniker Default Genders. A full LP is now available via his Bandcamp.

Grudle Bay

We first featured 'Colder' by Grudle Bay last autumn, and this Dubwiser remix is both a nice reminder of that track and something very decent in its own right.

Nathan K

Brilliantly naive, childlike 'anti-freak folk' from Michigan native Nathan K.

The Royal Landscaping Society

Fast becoming our house band, here is another one from The Royal Landscaping Society expertly remixed by I Am Dive, another Seville based outfit.

We've been long time fans of Dream Curtain, since we heard the incredible double of 'This Landscape Is Our Escape' and 'Glowing'.

He released an excellent album 'Unknown Ends' earlier in the year and has now constructed a tasty guest mix for us.


Molly Nilsson - Worlds Apart
Melody's Echo Chamber - You Won't Be Missing That Part Of Me
Angel Olsen - Iota (live in Stockholm)
Lower Dens - Two Cocks
Atlas Sound - Quick Canal (w. Lætitia Sadier)
Hundred Waters - Murmurs
Taken By Trees - Anna

More on Dream Curtain


Finding that sweet spot where melancholy becomes uplifting, the wistful output of Horsebeach is spot on.

Gold Is For The Golden Team

Another irresistible release from Gold Is For The Golden Team.

Guy Fox

Peculiar, jittering future pop from Guy Fox, which happens to be a band with zero members called Guy Fox. Simple.

The Royal Landscaping Society

More from The Royal Landscaping Society, taken from their LP due in mid July.

Atlas Murphy

We featured Atlas Murphy's collaboration with Zoo Brother back in February, 'Whatever' was the sound of an ice cream van which offers psychoactives alongside the Mr Whippy. Anyway as well as this collaboration, Atlas Murphy's solo output does its damnedest to reflect a stellar list of contemporary leftfield indie influences.

Wild Ones

It might be a 'B Side' but this is pretty special stuff from Wild Ones.
