Berne’s Silver Firs are longtime-favorites of ours as you can see here or here or here or in many of our play- and year-end-lists. Soonish we get to hear new material by the band: A new EP is on its way and should be ‘out soon’ on Oh, Sister Records as this recently released promo video tells us.
Sounds promising! We are looking forward to new ‘forest music’ (that’s how they sometimes use to describe their music) from one of Switzerland’s most forward-thinking outfits…
It was only last year when Rolf Laureijs, the self-taught musician behind Wavering Hands, started recording music on his own. But what the 20-year old produced in his bedroom, with not much more at hand than a laptop and a cheap mic, has left an impression. His lo-fi attempt on pop music reminds of genre flagships Beach Fossils, Craft Spells or Wild Nothing, but is still breaking new grounds.
Wavering Hands’ first EP is called “I Remember Nothing” will be out Feb 1, 2013 on Oh, Sister Records. In the meantime, download the excellent opener “No Constant” for free on bandcamp, or here below.
After a line-up change earlier this year, Dans La Tentehave announced a new split 7-inch together with their Lucerne mates Field Studies in October. This new song “Beliefs” won’t be on the 7”, but is offered by the band as a free download to their listeners. We’re proud to share it with you!
Already being part of the recent guerolitoplaylist 08|12, Lucerne’s indie darlings Alvin Zealot are readying their second album Flux for a 21st of September release. As their well-crafted first single “Flux” points out, the new record is drawing its inspiration from the more pyschedelic and dusty corners of indie rock. This is going to be big, believe me.
“Trouble” is a brand new jam by our friends Labrador Cityfrom Berne, Switzerland. Still the four bandmembers rely on their big strengths: The lacy guitar-licks and their nose for gorgeous melodies – without sounding like a cheap copy of their older stuff. Summer in Switzerland can be so relaxing with music like this.
Keep your eyes and ears open for their debut album in the near future!
