Gulp Announce Second LP ‘All Good Wishes'; Share New Single ‘I Dream Of Your Song’

Gulp_All_good_wishes_2018

Gulp, formed by Super Furry Animals’ Guto Pryce, Lindsey Leven and their long standing guitarist Gid Goundrey, have announced their new album All Good Wishes, which is set for release August 3rd via E.L.K Records.

The new album follows up their bewitching 2014 debut Season Sun; a wonderfully charming blend of distilled flashes of psychedelic sunshine, shimmering pastoral pop and breezy psych-folk. Ahead of the new album’s release, it is preceded by lead single ‘I Dream Of Your Song’. It’s a roving, hazy, dream-like affair, blending a swelling shimmer of hazy psych-folk and kraut-pop with a pastoral pop sweetness as Leven’s lulling vocals drift over the ripples of sun flares. A hazy, soothing and altogether wonderful insight to the new album and if it is anything like its predecessor, it will be one of 2018’s finest.

Listen to ‘I Dream Of Your Song’ below now, and drift away…..

Salmone – ‘Half Blind’

artworks-000319309221-tkguqt-original

Salmone is an intercontinental affair comprised of two New Yorkers and three Parisians who create, in their own words, “Psychedelic Bossa-Nova”.

On hearing their recently released Swim EP, that description is pretty apt, as is the case with the latest single lifted from the record, ‘Half Blind’. Crated with a laid back flare, it trickles by with an airy, sunny disposition and chilled out bossa nova and jazzy vibes. Bringing some serious summer feels, it is breezy as they come, easily digestible and one of those tunes that will paste a big smile on your face. An absolute delight, it just won’t let you go – you’ll have it on repeat.

Tune into the laid-back intercontinental summer vibes that is ‘Half Blind’ below. And if you care to, you can check out the entire EP here.

Mama Kokomo – ‘Primavera Feel’

mama-kokomo

Los Angeles-based dream pop three-piece Mama Kokomo has just released their hazy first single ‘Primavera Feel’ and it’s bringing the gorgeous, slumbering vibes of a somnolent summer day.

The trio – Krista Michaela, Hank Smith, and Dorvin Borman – have a penchant for atmospheric instrumentation, jangly percussion, and psychedelic soundscapes, something born out perfectly on their debut single. ‘Primavera Feel’ sort of floats, along a warm, dreamy groove in a sea of lush undulations, in which it shimmers and sparkles. While most definitely permeated by a burning sense of longing, there is an understated feeling of defiance as it fizzes with a brimming positivity. A warm, dreamy and downright magnificent delight.

Listen to ‘Primavera Feel’ below – it doesn’t disappoint.

Dobchinsky – ‘Ramabama’

Dobchinsky are a Moscow-based electronic outfit whose preference is experiment with electronics, oscillating on the energies of funk, lounge, downtempo & chillout.

Their most recent singles ‘Ramabama’ combines all these disparate elements to form a fun-filled and funky fix of upbeat summery vibes. Shuffling along a funky groove and big, bouncy beats it is resplendent with it’s bursts of colour, radiant sunshine and irresistible melody, lead by a electro-violin. Upbeat, fun and funky; and yet nicely chilled, laidback and carefree; a rather nice combo just in time for summer. All in all, it is superb and not to dissimilar to what you would expect from the stellar Mr Scruff.

Get in tune with the fun-filled frolics of ‘Ramabama’ below.

The Charlatans – ‘Totally Eclipsing’

The Charlatans are a gift that keep on giving; almost three decades of delivering great music and they aren’t about to stop now.

Far from trading on past glories The Charlatans – and indeed front man Tim Burgess – seem to have a real zip about them in recent years; great records, collaborations and books (Burgess’ two books to-date are sublime), and it is the former which concerns us today.

The Charlatans have released new EP ‘Totally Eclipsing’ today (June 8th); and with it, lead single of the same name. ‘Totally Eclipsing’ is a supremely catchy piece of jangle-pop perfection. It whizzes and fizzes along, wrapped up with a sunny disposition matched by a hazy summer feel; a magical mix of bouncy, jovial jangle-pop dripping with smiley melody. This is one of those infectious tunes that will be bobbing around inside your head all day and that, by the way, is a very good thing. ‘Totally Eclipsing’ is up there with the very best of The Charlatans’ output over the past 30 years and that says something!

Check out ‘Totally Eclipsing’ below & the EP can be found in all the usual haunts.
