‘Georgie Wants A Garden’ is the sunny new single from Blackaby, a London trio fronted by William Blackaby and released through the Record in Peace label’s, RIP Introduces series.

The series, now on its second volume, shines a light on emerging artists and collecting them for an end of year vinyl compilation; the latest, as we said, is ‘Georgie Wants A Garden’. It is a three-minute outpouring of good vibes as heavenly harmonies ebb and flow over the gentle guitars and soft, almost brushed percussion. The trio’s take on ’60s inspired folk-pop is divine, with a loungey, lazy-day feel and shimmering, sunkissed glow making for an irresistibly lush tune as it skips on by. An absolute delight!

Listen to ‘Georgie Wants A Garden’ below. Volume 1 of the RIP Introduces series is here too.

At just over three minutes, ‘Running from the Lawman’ slinks its way into your head, and will be be pleasantly floating there all day.

Self-professed purveyors “sludgepop” and “grungegaze”, Terra Pines is an Australian trio comprised of Kelly Hanlon (guitar/vocals), Owen Dengate (guitar/vocals) and Cameron Smith (drums/vocals).

Playful genre descriptions aside, the Aussie outfit make powerful, fuzz-filled guitar tunes and just this month, have released their self-titled album. The album is fronted by rambunctious new single ‘Dream Big'; a perfect intro and one that will have you scooting straight over to the new album. An absolutely brilliant three minutes of fuzzed-up-noise, ‘Dream Big’ is tempered by her lilting vocals, while gritty guitars, heavy reverberating drums and rocking a crunchy, fuzz-heavy riff that rips through the track. For all the powerhouse pieces of post punk, shoegaze and grunge, there is a subtle seam of dreampop running through its core, eking out a near perfect space between sludge, fuzz and hazy pop.

Tune into ‘Dream Big’ below and if it is too your liking, why not check out Terra Pines’ debut record here.

Basement Revolver – ‘Baby’

Based in Hamilton, Ontario, Canadian trio Basement Revolver are gearing up for the release of their debut LP, Heavy Eyes.

Slated for release on August 24 through Sonic Unyon, Basement Revolver’s debut promises 12 tracks of 90’s infused indie-rock and using lead single ‘Baby’ as a gauge, the record looks rather encouraging to say the least. A power brand of 90’s inspired indie-rock laced with layers of dulcet reverb, ‘Baby’ makes for compelling listening. It is dripping in atmospherics and smouldering with sadness, dissatisfaction and heartfelt longing, owing much to Hurn’s mournful delivery of sorrowful lyrics. Despite the doleful air, ‘Baby’ never flounders, swelling with a resolute anthemic power, and Hurn’s soar, far above. As compelling an intro as you’re likely to get – magnificent!

Listen to ‘Baby’ below now and keep an eye out for their debut LP.
