This week’s Feature Album of the Week is coming to you all the way from Pamplona, Spain with “Ahora”, the third studio album from kraut pop band Melenas. Blending their jangly guitars and psychedelic vocals with analogue Korg and Yamaha synthesizers, sequencers and bass tones, the band effortlessly reels you into hypnotic jams reminiscent of Stereolab and The Feelies. The Spanish four-piece shows their personality all across the tracklist, messing around with spacey drum machine sounds and layering each track with rich angelic vocals. Translating from Spanish as “Now”, “Ahora” is an energetic and innovative record highlighting the sounds of years past and to come.
After a run of singles this year which kicked off in June, the Allah-Lahs have finally blessed us with their latest LP “Zuma 85”. Across the thirteen-track band members Matthew, Spencer, Miles and Pedrum demonstrate the depth of their bond over psychedelic surf rock music, having first met at the renowned Amoeba Records in California, with this new album melding their surf rock sound with folk rock and jangle rock. The Allah-Lahs will be touring Australia starting from December 1st at the Hotel Brunswick and will be playing at the Metro Theatre in Sydney on December 7th.
Looking locally, Naarm-based singer-songwriter Maple Gliderhas released their sophomore album “I Get Into Trouble”, an ethereal folk project that explores concepts of sexuality consent and shame. Whilst maintaining an intimate tone throughout, Tori Zietsch toys with her playful delivery throughout the LP that will land perfectly with fans of Hand Habits, Luluc and Rachel Dadd.
Vancouver Island four-piece Neighbourly have released their debut self-titled album “Neighbourly” via Earth Libraries. Having formed in 2016 under the name Speak Easy, the band’s debut release is a fun disco and pop album laced with psychedelic tones over liquid guitars and smooth rhythms, drawing connotations to sounds from artists such as Babe Rainbow and Velvet Trip.
We have a new release from Naarm producer and vocalist Rebel Yell, with her third album “Desolation” out on Dinosaur City. It’s a dance-focussed industrial electronica record featuring fierce bangers for the tender-hearted, featuring collaborations with Cong Josie (NO ZU), California Girls and more. Under her moniker as Rebel Yell, Grace Stevenson’s dark industrial production and stark vocals shine as the highlight of this release, combining seamlessly to create a powerful throbbing energy throughout.
New singles also featured in our rotation this week include Salarymen‘s new track “Second Sight”, “Blak Nations” from Emma Donovan, “Twice as Quit” from Hand Models and much more!
