Shoegaze in a New Decade: Sunstack Jones release dreamy new single Lighthouse

Isn’t it nice when you hear something new that is refreshingly different and blissfully familiar all at once? Not content to simply dip their toe into psychedelia, Sunstack Jones have dived into the pool head-first, immerse themselves in the gentle ripples and surging undercurrents of inspired pysch. Perhaps most importantly, though, is what they’ve not done […]

Shoegaze in a New Decade: Juleah releases third LP Melt Inside The Sun

 Over two years ago, I discovered a treasure-trove on YouTube. A collection of painstakingly recorded covers: Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Kasabian, Oasis, the Brian Jonestown Massacre. A musician calling herself “Juleah” evidentally had very similar music taste to me, and her covers were incredible. Her music was bluesy and dark but carried itself with an […]

Shoegaze in a New Decade: Pale Fires interview – London psych rock act release their second EP ‘Mammoth’

Not six months after the release of their debut EP Louring Skies, London-based psych rock act Pale Fires have released their second EP, Mammoth. While Louring Skies was the laborious result of an effort to record, Mammoth is a much more organic release. With the majority of the recording done straight to tape with minimal […]

Shoegaze in a New Decade: The Carousels release debut album ‘Love Changes Like the Seasons’

The Carousels are organic. Read that to mean what you will, and it’s probably right. A psychedelic folk/country band from Keith, Scotland, The Carousels’ music carries an air of innocence and earnestness, combining country soul and pop sensibilities. Having already found success with self-released songs like Marianne and Call Along the Coast, The Carousels are […]

Shoegaze in a New Decade: Interview with Jsun Adams of Daydream Machine on the release of their debut album ‘Twin Idols’

Daydream Machine’s music is the perfect mix between spaced-out guitar-led droning and the guitar-jangling fun of an all-in percussive approach to rock. Authentic, inventive and an organised cacophony of musical, literary and cultural influence, Daydream Machine is reminiscent of a dozen different genres. Referencing none too strongly and not taking themselves too seriously, it sounds […]

Shoegaze in a New Decade: Deep Cut release star-studded remix album ‘Versions’

The self-released LP is an album of rehashed hits from the bedrock of alternative music. A triumph of cohesive reworks, Versions is a 40-minute vinyl mini-album featuring Tim Burgess (The Charlatans), Spotlight Kid, The Electric Mainline, Exit Calm, Daniel […]
