Cycles by Everyday Life The twangy jangle-pop of Blue Plutos was always very enjoyable to me — particularly the track “Shadow Chateau“, which is recommended listening to all. With a sound reminiscent of Felt, The Go-Betweens, The Church and other ’80s jangle-pop greats, they really struck a sweet spot. So I was delighted to find out […] The post Everyday Life – “Spinning Wheels” appeared first on .

Back in 2013, London-based group Everything by Electricity impressed with the track “Violet Haze”, which ran on nocturnal synth pads and a nostalgic motor-like ignition in its similarities to neon-lit Italo-disco and synth-pop.

Last month I posted Ninth Floor Mannequin’s excellent track “Absences“, a hypnotic gem featuring crisp guitars and a bustling post-punk feel. Captivated by the track, I’ve kept returning to it alongside the other two tracks on its eponymous EP. “The Company” is another track from the release worth pointing out, as it displays a more […] The post Ninth Floor Mannequin – “The Company” appeared first on .
