The bands next release quickly follows and coincides with a European tour in October. A five track cassette entitled ‘Acquiescence’ is a co-release between UK labels Hail Hail and EDILS Records (digitally through Bleeding Gold) will be available from October 14th. A more experimental and ambient collection compared to its predecessor, ‘Acquiescence’ see’s Oh Well, Goodbye use drums loops and keyboards for the first time on half of the tracks while still touching upon the band’s pop sensibilities and downbeat ‘post punk’ sound. This leads nicely into the final release of the trilogy; ‘I Know, I Know, I Know’ which is a remix EP comprised of tracks from both ‘Swoon’ and ‘Acquiescence’. Hitting the world wide web on November 11th, again through Bleeding Gold, the digital only release features remixes by a host of acts including Dignan Porch (Faux Discx/Captured Tracks), Gorgeous Bully (Art Is Hard), Moonlit Sailor (Deep Elm) and new comers such as Dayflower and Grave Diggers Union.

Tape Waves – Here To Fade

Posted in Uncategorized on September 11, 2016 by bleedinggold

Tape Waves Here To FadeDès les premières secondes de So Fast, titre d’ouverture du nouvel album des américains de Tape Waves, un climat de romantisme atemporel règne sans partage. Il faut dire que le duo, natif de Charleston, en Caroline du Sud, en connaît un rayon quand il s’agit d’écrire des ballades fluides, aux couleurs variées et évanescentes à l’image de l’illustration qui orne la pochette d’Here To Fade. Deuxième album déjà pour Kim et Jarod Weldin après Let You Go, paru en 2014, mais c’est comme si rien n’avait changé. Les guitares se font sensibles et se mélangent harmonieusement aux discrets claviers pour donner naissance à une dream pop que des groupes comme Cocteau Twins ou Talula Gosh ne renieraient certainement pas.

Certains pourraient reprocher un manque criant d’originalité, d’autres groupes s’étant déjà pliés à l’exercice, de Seapony à Beach Fossils pour ne citer que les derniers…

BG105 | As Loud As I Can

Posted in Uncategorized on May 24, 2016 by bleedinggold
Spooky Cigarette, whose name is a facetious nudge at their frontmanʼs self proclaimed identity as a black (spook) fag (cigarette), is a New/No Wave project from San Diego, California, formed in the fall of 2015. Fronted by Frank Mindingall (Beaters, Northern Tigers, Ale Mania) and consisting of Jakob McWhinney (Space Heat, The Soaks) Skylar Eppler (Via Meteor), and Danny Gallo (formerly of Hills like Elephants), the project aims to channel the subtly decorated borders of night and day. With dirigible synths, cumulonimbus flangers, and the cool colors of pop, theyʼve already shared the stage with excellent acts such as Lower Dens, Thee Commons, Grenda, Chris Cohen, Island Boy, TV Girl & Tijuana Panthers. Their debut EP, ʻAs Loud As I Canʼ is an attempt to fully realize social and sexual identity and reconcile all the time lost. It is both haunting and inviting, like writhing in chaise to find the perfect position. ʻAs Loud As I Canʼ is set to be released on cassette through Bleeding Gold Records and Field Trips.

Formed in the fall of 2015, Spooky Cigarette is an homage to new wave, no wave, and post punk. With fluorescent guitars, cumulonimbus synths, and a dusk bass, Spooky Cigarette is the subtly decorated borders of night and day. As loud as I Can is both haunting and comfortable, like writhing in a chaise to find the perfect position.

This is a limited run of 100 and we did not get tests, cuz that’s how we roll at this lo-fi establishment, so that’s how it is and that’s that!!

Listen: Lost Trail – ‘All Saints’ Eve In Other Burlington’

A little something about the upcoming Lost Trail 12″, due out Friday September 4th…

Killer Ponytail

Lost-TrailLet’s face it, sometimes it can be all too easy to miss the history around you. If you’re walking through your home town or visiting somewhere entirely new, the subtle elements of past voices are capable of being heard, if only you listen hard enough. This is a thought that clearly hasn’t escaped North Carolina duo Lost Trail.

The duo, consisting of matrimonially entwined Zach and Denny Corsa, specialise in using analogue equipment, tape loops and found sounds to create their music, and the results are less like songs and more like expansive sonic tales.

The band’s forthcoming 12” is called A Foreground And A Backdrop (set for release on 4th September on Bleeding Gold Records) and the very title suggests the fact that Lost Trail are capable of seeing the world around them in multi-dimensional ways. Something that more than bares out in their new track ‘All Saints’…

Listen: Roman Lakes – ‘The Sparrow’

Posted in Uncategorized on May 26, 2015 by bleedinggold

Some nice words on the new Roman Lakes….

Killer Ponytail

roman lakes the sparrowWhat do think of when you think of Manchester? The big, baggy beats of the likes of Happy Mondays and the heady indie dance of the Hacienda club, right? Well, prepare to cast those stereotypes aside because Manchester’s Roman Lakes has something entirely more serene to offer.

Roman Lakes, aka Ben Hyman, serves as a counter to the swaggering lad-orientated rock made famous by the north of England and delivers a more cerebral take on the world using nothing more than his voice and a well worn guitalele (that’s a cross between a guitar and a ukulele by the way).

Hyman’s new track ‘The Sparrow’ (released on the ever dependable Bleeding Gold Records) showcases his knack for creating a gloriously bouncing melody that can’t help but echo the heyday of the 70s British folk scene, and his vocals take on the straight forward narrative delivery of the likes of The Tallest Man On…

BG089 | MAGIC DUDES

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on March 8, 2015 by bleedinggold

Apache Viking were hatched circa 2009 from members of Newcastle based band Free Diamonds (signed to Deep Elm records in the US), US act Foresake Ya to the Snakes, and the famed Newcastle country band The Devitos.

This unlikely coalition is a jigsaw of pop punk, cartoon lyricism, Russian polka and mid 50’s lo-fi. Instantly Apache Viking were quoted as the best band in Newcastle upon Tyne and ones to watch by BBC 6 music (who have dedicated airplay on many occasions).

BG021 | ALLIGATOR INDIAN Spring I’m In

Posted in Band Update, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , on April 23, 2012 by bleedinggold

BandCamp | iTunes

Spring I’m In launches opportunely enough at the cusp of the season, but the recording process originally had Alligator Indian beginning work in their mountain retreat, the Rainbow Reservation, shortly after the summer release of their Football EP with Bleeding Gold. The resultant sound files came across like a worn out copy of Simon Reynold’s post-punk opus Rip It Up and Start Again dropped in a vat of lysergic acid diethylamide, if they may be so bold. And if’n they mayn’t, let’s just say it’s pretty not so bad. The aural constructs begin with a blistering sci-fi tale of a world where tyrannical governments mandate who a citizen can become betrothed to. From there, themes and sounds shift between fuzzy post-pop, a cappella bursts of vocals, and industrial cries for contentment.

Available on ‘CosmicPurple’ or Classic Black vinyl and CASSETTE here.
