‘Expert By Virtue, Thereof’ by TUBELIGHT (Belgium)
Belgium‘s trash gang nails it with their 2nd LP. Imagine The Fall having a crazed session  with The Velvet Underground, while consuming speed & booze instead of fucking heroin.

Comeback album by Boston‘s guitar pop legends, emotionally driven by the passionate, colorful and glamorous voice of Tanya Donelly, is an endearing and lustrous diamond!

‘Mien’ by MIEN (UK, US, Canada)
Contrary to countless other side-projects these four compelling musicians didn’t
get together just to kill time. Their magical collaboration is nothing less than amazing.
A five-star psych pop rainbow with starry-eyed waves and moony vibrations. Stellar!

‘Call The Comet’ by JOHNNY MARR (Manchester, UK)
True to his ‘never do things the same twice‘ motto Marr went for a new, venturesome
sound. A gloomy modern-day glam rock stomp while dealing with the troubled times
we live in, yet having a hopeful vision for the near future. He’s a natural born starr!

‘MEGAMIX’ by RUMOURS (Belgium)
This atmospheric, soulful and dancey debut LP is a multi-colored adventure. A magnificent and magnetizing work of transcendent soundscapes, ranging from grand symphonies to mighty bass-loaded-synths drones with a trance-like vox in the middle. A major revelation!

‘Black City’ by RICH GIRLS (New York, US)
Frontwoman Luisa Black‘s voice feels genuinely real, touched by life and its up and downs. Combined with the band’s midnight hour guitar poetry you get a magic pop noir triumph!

‘Terra Pines’ by TERRA PINES (Brisbane, Australia)
Dreamy melodies drenched in an overwhelming wall-of-towering-guitar-dynamics
by this self-declared grungegaze and sludgepop trio from down under. High-powered
and multi-layered reverberations with a heavy My Bloody Valentine touch. Bingo!
