Presents for Sally. Many thanks for this one Mike. This powerful British trio formed in 2009, with track 'Flowers Falling Sideways' being featured on the Invada records compilation 'The Secret Garden', quickly followed that November with the praised 7" single 'Catch Your Fall'. A year later arrived debut album 'A Touch of Joy, A Touch of Sadness' plus 7” single 'Anything Anymore'. After a couple of quiet years and a self-financed 7” single for Xmas 2014, now they are back with sophomore LP 'Colours & Changes', out now by Saint Marie Records. A fantastic voyage to the realms of shoegaze, at times shiny, delicate and melodically blissful, others edgier and menacing. An extraordinary present for all of us.
Tomiji. And we end in Paris to meet Thomas Guilcher, the vocalist of our dearly loved Pale Spectres (new songs anytime soon, please?) and one of his most exciting solo projects. Released this June, this self-titled debut EP (that you should run to grab at his bandcamp, what a bargain!) is a slice of indiepop heaven, Impossibly, ridiculously catchy, melodic to the bone, it looks eye-to-eye to the The Pastels or makes you think on how The Field Mice would sound in the new millennium, with an irresistible subtle danceable beat. Enchanting and delightful.
