Younghusband are the vehicle for the songs of singer, songwriter and producer Euan Hinshelwood. Swimmers is their third album of airy guitar pop. It was recorded in their own recording studio in Greenwich with a more impulsive method than previous albums. Hinshelwood only shared his songs with band members on the day they were set to record them. On Opposite Number.

Southern Mind Remixed

Get another perspective on that Lowtide album you liked so much with Southern Mind Remixed, which hands over the stems from Southern Mind for others to play around with. We’ve got versions by Ulrich Schnauss, Sanae Yamada from Moon Duo under her Vive La Void alias, and Black Cab, among others. Particularly interesting to hear the more electronically-inclined artists get stuck into this material… 12” EP on Opposite Number.

Amaya Laucirica

This is Melburnian Amaya Laucirica’s fourth album and first LP since 2014. Rituals has a spacious, luscious dream-rock style. Laucirica uses jangling references to early shoegaze and ethereal wave, but is confident enough to mix her breathy vocals high and perfectly intelligible - I reckon she’s aiming for poppier crowds as well.

Southern Mind

Australian shoegaze outfit Lowtide return with their second full-length album, titled Southern Mind. We know the game with shoegaze of course, but Lowtide are bosses at constructing a good guitar swirl, and they cut in enough other pleasing flavours to keep it all lively. Released by Opposite Number.

The Fireworks
Dream About You

The Fireworks follow up their Black and Blue EP with a three track single of high-powered indie-pop, with plenty of jangle and fuzz to keep things moving along. Dream About You features a slightly new line-up, with the band welcoming Beth Arzy (of Trembling Blue Stars and The Luxembourg Signal) as their new singer. 7” single on Opposite Number.

Julia / Spring

With their eponymous debut record charting on a few 2016 end-of-year lists, Lowtide are wise to make good on their current run of form with a new 7” single. I say new - this is a re-release of something that originally came out in 2015. The band draws heavily from that sort of shoegazey post-punk that worked so well for Echo and the Bunnymen and Slowdive.

H. Grimace
Self Architect

First full-length record from H. Grimace, one of those post-punk bands they have in that London. Self Architect slices its way through contemporary issues (patriarchal pressure on women, ‘the end of nature’ etc.) with slick guitars and Hannah Gledhill’s sweetly-strong vocals. CD / LP out on Opposite Number.

Royal Hush / Excavations

Absorbed with moody and pessimistic spaciousness is the progressive release, Royal Hush, from London based quartet - H.Grimace. With a cathartic live show to boot, this 28th October release is set to propel the shoegazing guitar-thrashers forward into the stratosphere. Fans of Pixies and Deerhunter, eat your heart out.

Lowtide are an indie-rock four-piece from Melbourne, Australia. Their sound has been likened to a combination of Slowdive, Spacemen 3 and Sparklehorse which seems a bit of an odd mix to me…..anyway, on their self-titled debut they definitely have tunes in abundance. They have been championed by 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq.
