Hiya! Yes, it’s been awhile since my last Orbitings post (a few months back) – life’s been crazy with a rambunctious toddler, changing jobs, the holidaze, and surviving this crazy winter so far. Finally, things are getting back to normal, and so is this blog. Thanks for reading! I’ve been catching up on some stuff released towards the end of last year, and here’s a few that stood out:
Purple Heart Parade
I found these guys while searching through my Twitter followers, and they really stood out. PHP is a 5-piece from Manchester who specialize in “Shoegaze/Psych/Fuzz Rock”, and have been together since late 2012, playing shows with The Telescopes and Exit Calm along with a headline slot at the Glasgow Psych Fest. Check out a track from their EP Painting Pictures:
First Communion Afterparty
Reverberating from Minneapolis comes First Communion Afterparty, and their latest Earth Heat Sound. First heard of this 6(?) piece group from a Facebook post by Chatham Rise, seeing how they share a label. Their music is quite psychedelic, and I don’t necessarily mean in the “psych” vein, but way out there – I highly recommend this one.
Eat Lights Become Lights
The ever prolific Eat Lights Become Lights is slowly teasing us with previews from their upcoming full-length due out in April 2014. The first preview is a video for the track “You Are Disko”, which to me represents a leap forward in their electo-kraut sound.
