Earlier this year Captured Tracks’ Widowspeak played Luzern’s favourite summer bar Volière, hosted by Radio 3FACH. Local filmmakers Justin Stoneham and Roman Hodel captured the concert and this is the beautiful result: Watch Widowspeak perform “Perennials” and “Locusts” from their album Ballad Of The Golden Hour, which was released this year.
I’m considering myself to be quite a sucker for dreamy shoegaze sounds. Must be the reason why I fell for Taxes‘ “Over The View” right away. Flynn Wheeler‘s solo work can be filed somewhere between M83, The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart and Wild Nothing and brings back the 80ies to your speakers, without sounding too stale.
Taxes’ debut EP Back Of The Car Collection is ready for you to be bought at bandcamp - I highly recommend to download the entire record.

Long-time guerolitomusic favourite Orca Orca has just released a new EP called Tidals. Sounding dreamy and jangly as ever Jimmy Hewitt has obviously improved his songwriting and instrumental skills, having arrived at a very high level. It’s only a matter of time before bigger indie labels will take notice of Jimmy’s talents.
Download the EP over at bandcamp and make sure to buy one of the limited, hand-painted cassettes.
For now stick with Tidals’ amazing opener “Climb”.

As recently announced, there’s a new release by one of Switzerland’s most overlooked bands coming: After their strong debut record, which was released last year, Silver Firs are coming out with three new songs, assembled on EP#1.
We’re happy to unveil the EP’s opener, the percussion-laden, propulsive, but yet dreamy indie pop beaut “Motherland”. It’s available for download below. The entire thing will be released digitally on Oh, Sister Records on the 28th of June.

Ewok Fur is the strange moniker of a german-based bedroom producer whose hazy, tropical lo-fi tracks have just reached me this afternoon. It was one of our dear readers who advised me to listen to his songs.
Especially the dreamy “moving to antarctica sounds quite ok” (part of his new EP Television Summer) really grabbed my attention. Download Ewok Fur’s entire EP over at bandcamp for free and show him some love on Facebook!
