Nah … – Summer’s Failing EP

0 comments

Indiepop duo Nah… , who are based in Amsterdam in Munster, have released their debut EP “Summer’s Failing”, and it’s everything that fans of dreampop and twee could possibly ask for. Luscious harmonies and indie pop sensibility is stamped upon each track and with the short release, less is more, and this lends itself to welcomed […]

I have recently found myself looking for some newer Lo-fi Chill/Vaporwave, the likes of which were all the rage in the summer of 2009, when a few weeks ago I had somehow thought that Washed Out had new material out (they don’t) and then found that for some reason, it just seems that this music […]

Gliss – Strange Heaven

Berlin duo Gliss released a new album just a few weeks ago, and it has absolutely enraptured me. At times “Strange Heaven” reminds the listener of other acts, such as the Raveonettes and early Tamaryn releases but they also somehow remain completely true to their own sound. This album is a luscious hybrid of sorts […]

Sun System – Ways we Meet

Phoenix band Sun System have a brand of indie Dreampop that is catchy and clean, with a slight resemblance to the likes of Chicago’s Shoegaze juggernaut Airiel, as well as nods to other more hybrid bands such as the painfully missed Depreciation Guild. While listening I also hear a bit of a mainstream alternative rock […]

Today marks a little bit of post-show depression for me, as I just wrapped up the concert weekend that I look forward to most here in Michigan each year, Kalama-Shoegazer. I have been attending this event for the past few years, and it’s not only a collection of some of the best Shoegaze and Dreampop […]

Imagine if you stumbled across a mystical place, somewhere between the light and dark. Here a dense fog covers the ground but is punctured by glowing shafts of light. There are ominous beings in the shadows but also great beauty and delights. What would the soundtrack to such a place sound like? The Morelings offer […]

The Sorry Shop – Soft Spoken

“After a long time, we finally released our third full album. Based on a Dream Pop aesthetic but also flirting with the most iconic elements of Shoegaze, “Softspoken”, our new album, is a soft and noisy blast. The blurred and fuzzy pachyderm of the cover (which is signed by the talented Meire Todão) summarises the […]

The Dream Eaters – We are a Curse review & interview

The Dream Eaters’ new release “We are a Curse” features folky dream pop a’la Beach House, with echoes of low fi in the vein of Iron and Wine. The songs on this release also feature gorgeous harmonies with wit and bite to the lyrics. Overall, I felt this release definitely echoed one of my favorite […]
