Jane Pow

Jane Pow appeared in late ’80s Southampton, England, sporting a buoyant mod/garage sound that was a poppier version of the loud and rough two-and-a-half minute pop-punk riots of the classic Jam.

This Scarlet Train

Shortlived band hailing from Falkirk, Scotland. Existing as a 3 piece outfit during 1986/87.Guitarist Robert Polson went on to form lo fi experimental recording duo Water Magnesium (Watmag) with Jim Corbet.


Sometimes Always
Sometimes Always is in fact only one person, Tyo from Jakarta. His sweet pop songs are drenched in rough fuzzy guitars and analogue noise, and I get the same joyous feeling when I listen to this as I did when I listened to MBV’s early recordings. Tyo is much influenced by bands like Afraid of Stairs, The Tony Head Experience and of course the early days of My Bloody Valentine.

Beach Fossils

The jangly, self-recorded ramblings of Brooklyn’s Dustin Payseur, Beach Fossils offers hauntingly catchy tunes that blend the energy of an impulsive road trip with the melodious wandering of a lucid dream. Sun drenched riffs, kaleidoscopic rhythms and hazy lyrics saturate Beach Fossils’ first release, a s/t album with a carefree vibe perfectly summed up through song titles such as “Daydream,” “Vacation,” and “Lazy Day.”

Bye Bye Bicycle
