Being celebrity DJs, we were lucky enough to receive an advance promo copy of the single How To Feel by Useless Cities, so we have been playing it for a few weeks now. Glad to say that it is now available to the masses and we reckon you should certainly give it a listen. Available on Bandcamp etc.
A new genre to us called "folk dream pop", this is Israel's Silona with Course of Life - the description is wholly accurate and the sound really draws you in. Interesting words, thought-provoking in many ways. The abstract video is great, too.
Possibly the most mesmerising, yet uneventful video you are likely to see. We are treating you to something ambient today with a track called Embryon by Machina Corde. A touch menacing and sort of relaxing at the same time, we like it. We also adore their artwork.
This is the second track from New Jersey's Ipkiss that we have really liked, here's Simple Simon, a psychedelic song about psilocybin (look it up!). Simple Simon says, don't put your hands on your head, give it a listen!
A brooding, dark instrumental called Confined by stonefromthesky (a.k.a. SFTS), the alias of Alex Zinchenko, an experimental music artist and composer based in Ukraine. Available on his latest release Schema Theory.
Thought we would share something a little more edgy with you, this is Piss Factory's latest release Simplify. It features, Thomas Blatchford on bass, our friend and colleague from Dandelion Radio. Four short tracks, no messing, straight to the point.
Just out is a new EP called Extraordinary Girl by Delaware's Braxton Hicks - promising "jagged riffs, sweet-and-sour harmonies and Brill Building sensibilities..." it provides six tracks of slick indie pop that will certainly improve your day.
Exciting news, we have teamed-up with the magnificent Japanese label, Thomas Imposter Records, to create a new 'singles' label called Green Banana Records. Each release will showcase top music from our most favourite acts, all packaged with unique artwork in very limited collectors' editions.
We are absolutely delighted to reveal that our first release is a 7" vinyl single by the amusingly noisy Japanese band, Goofy18. Side one features I Wanna Be An Instagrammer, with the Dandelion Radio Festive 50 nominated, Love & War, on the flipside. As a special bonus, the single comes complete with a digital download of 'I Wanna Be An Instagrammer (Life As Surface Noise Remix)'.
Time for some dreampop in the form of The Silence from Bathe - a new track available from Bandcamp, Spotify etc.
Bathe is singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Bailey Crone. Bailey plays everything on the song from drums, guitar, bass, to vocals. The Silence is her debut single and lyrically it is about the feeling of being alone and how it relates to her past history with panic attacks and grieving the loss of friends and loved ones. Music boffins should be pleased to know that it is written in a mixolydian key, the song's mood is supposed to be neither happy nor sad.
One aspect that amused us is that Bathe aims to create songs you can "lay on the floor and stare at the ceiling to" - something we enjoy doing enormously, as our mansion ceilings are rather grand.
The Silence will appear on Bathe's debut LP titled Last Looks, due for release in 2020.
Please introduce yourself...
Hi! I'm Pankin. I'm bass & vocal of GOOFY18. I'm playing with the
drummer Migi. We are Tokyo based two piece rock band! And I am also an event organizer. I'm working with a team named "Main actor
is U!!" Our event is small and unique! How would you describe your music? Effect laden bass sounds over frantic free drumming, tied together with pretty
harmonies and a power pop sensibility.
What are you doing at the moment? Our 7" vinyl has been released in September. We are preparing the recording
for the next release. And next year, we would like to go to England, so we
are collecting funds for that.
What is the best thing about making music? For me, that's a feeling of dissatisfaction to myself, to the environment, to
You are only allowed to keep one of your tracks, which one would you choose and why? "LOVE&WAR". Because I want to continue exercising. Please watch…
