Gap Dream

"Here's some good lo-fi bedroom scuzz-pop that hits you with just the right amount of pleasant psych-surf haze, leaving you feeling contentedly chill. Gap Dream recently released a debut on Burger Records, but if you're a fan of most of the Captured Tracks roster (or Underwater Peoples, for that matter), I can definitely see you being into Gap Dream. It's the same kind of sitch."  Oh My Rockness

Lorelle Meets the Obsolete





















Lorelle meets The Obsolete - On Welfare:
The Mexican duo sear their way through a heady mix of shoegaze and psychedelia that wobbles when you think it's going to run straight into the foam and scorches just when you're least expecting it to catch fire.

"Captcha Records, the label that's brought great works from Epsilons, Ga'an, Thee Oh Sees and Ty Segall has stumbled on Guadalajara's dirty little secret in the form of Lorelle Meets the Obsolete. The Mexican duo sears their way through a heady mix of shoegaze and pychedelia that wobbles when you think its going to run straight into the foam and scorches just when you're least expecting it to catch fire. The band has a way of wrapping the two genre's (and the edges of quite a few more) around their guitar strings and pulling them tight into knots only to have those same knots disappear in a puff of black smoke. On Welfare is a perfect soundtrack to humid rains, streaked with heat and swelled with the promise of relief" (Andy French/Raven Sings the Blues)

No UFO’s – Soft Coast

No UFO’s - Soft Coast (Nice Up Int)

"Soft Coast is a drum machine-laced krautno adventure catalyzed by morbid visions of a future techno. Lurking minor-key experimentalia draggle the distorted grooves and subtle Much Dance vibes while cosmic drones pace the whole adventure. Grip now or regret missing the disjointed journey through Vancouver’s avant-Mise en scène. Conjured by the wyrd mind of Konrad Jandavs." (Aaron Levin / Weirdcanada.com)

Rancho Relaxo
















Rancho Relaxo er ute med nytt album: "Happy Friday Experiment" (Trout as Lubrication Records)

"Rancho Relaxo was formed in 2003, when Inge Kjetil Sandvik Malmedal hooked up his 4-track cassette recorder and started to make noise. As friends startet to join in, the music developed and Inge Kjetil started to write and arrange songs for the band. Around 2006 the band moved away from improvised spacemen 3 like tunes to a more traditional take on music making. The new songs consisted of Byrds-like harmonies, jangly shoegaze guitars, tambourines, sitar and paisley psychedelia. With 12 strings, lots of reverb, trippy melodies and some occassional fuzz freak-outs, they crafted their sound."

the band in Heaven


HOZAC : "you don’t hear the words “pop” and “nightmare” used together often enough, but with The Band In Heaven’s debut EP, it’s a newly minted connotation that fits so well, it seems to personify their ugly, industrial/shoe-gaze sound to a tee. The warped, idyllic fragments of noise, bending ruthlessly around each pounding hook, clearly shows how this band’s demonic dexterity is easily winning over everyone who comes in contact. Captivating minimalism this crepuscular and grimy isn’t best suited for summer days or weekend parties, so it’s only fitting that we’re unleashing this slab when the commodity of daylight is at it’s lowest, in the heart of the winter. So without further delay, pull those shades down, dim the lights and crank up this rapturous racket before their inevitable religious backlash comes to fruition" the band in Heaven

The Lost Rivers


















Northern Star Records: 'Noise infused three-piece The Lost Rivers hail from the south west German state of Baden-Württemberg yet sound as if they might have been conceived in the outer reaches of hell. Surefire challengers to A Place To Bury Strangers’ crown as kings (and queen) of sonic annihilation. Be sure to have those earplugs at the ready. Having firmly established themselves as one the most exciting rock ‘n’ roll bands on the planet, The Lost Rivers now deliver their debut album ‘Sin and Lostness.’ 

Drowned In Sound:  "While comparisons with … earlier incumbents of such wares like Spacemen 3, Loop and The Brian Jonestown Massacre are inevitable, there’s an immeasurably distinct edge to The Lost Rivers make up that sets them apart from most of their peers both past and present."

Pre-order now. Release 26/03/2012
