New Sounds #40 - March 28 2016




SUMMER FLAKE - WINE WON'T WASH AWAY
Reverb-washed, shoegaze-esque guitar shredding combine with airy Courtney Barnett vibes from Adelaide's Stephanie Crase’s second album 'Hello Friends', out on April 8 via Rice Is Nice. Star rating: ***.5/5




PALACE WINTER - SOFT MACHINE
Copenhagen-based duo debut the second track from their new LP ‘Waiting For The World To Turn’, out June 3 on Tambourhinoceros. Following lead single ‘Positron’, this latest takes a smoother ride to previous with sonic infectious melodies combining electronic elements and swooning beat with Australian Carl Coleman's stirring vocals. Star rating: ***/5




PARQUET COURTS - OUTSIDE
The New York garage punks drop new LP 'Human Performance' on April 8 through Rough Trade, and this is the latest taste of what's to come. A minute 105 seconds long, delivered by frontman Andrew Savage in typical PC style: “I tried to break all the objects that I threw when I kept the tidiest of town life / I tried to sing all the voices that I knew / I’ve been screaming softly in a loud mic.” Star rating: ***/5




ABATTOIR BLUES - TELL ME
This really quite outstanding single from the Brighton-based quintet bodes well indeed for this social frustrations-channelling outfit to break through before the year's end. Harry Waugh's impassioned and striking vocals recall shades of George Mitchell (Eagulls). On tour now, playing tonight (March 28) at London's Forum (w/Wolf Alice), and tomorrow at Deaf Institute, Manchester (w/Nai Harvest). Star rating: ****.5/5




GLASS CAVES - ALIVE
Big anthemic return for the Leeds alt-rockers, with a new track, despite it also being the title track of their 2014 debut album. Matt Hallas’ impressive vocals are just geared for festival stages and encouraging big singalongs. Star rating: ****/5
