Part of a split 12" on the Atelier Ciseaux label, this wonderfully primitive record comes from Montreal's Essaie Pas.

Sacramento dream-hop squadron DLRN have kindly premiered 'Bright Lights' with us from their EP which will be released by Waaga Records on 3rd June. It's a swirling, dystopian journey with an abrupt ending.


Developing quite a taste for the blissful desert island psych of Orangatang. Here is another beauty from them.


Minneapolis quartet Carroll have been quiet for too long but finally they have spawned some new material in the shape of 'Bad Water'.

Monday, 19 May 2014


A study in vaguely discordant but ultimately lovely songwriting. DEAREST hail from California and but seem to take their cues from somewhere much further afield.

Hockey Dad

Nearing a zenith in fuzzy brilliance comes this from Wollongong duo Hockey Dad.

Cousin Matt

Urgent and propulsive music from Cousin Matt of whom we know very little.


The latest offering of electro-pop otherness from the upcoming Brett LP.

Been a while since we last posted a track from Bedroom but his talents for wistful introspection remain strong.

Unkle Skeleton

Horizontally inclined beatsmithery of stupendous quality from Nashville producer Unkle Skeleton.


Scratchy and ramshackle songwriting, just the way we like it from 17 year old Sam Higgins a denizen of North Carolina.

St Tropez

Bay area wooze merchants St Tropez have confected a leftfield melange of disparate elements which come together in a strangely cohesive whole on this debut release.


Sun dappled jangle of the extremely blissed out variety taken from a limited 7" due on Young and Lost club in June.


If  mopecore was a genre this would be an exemplar of it, at least for the first two thirds of the record after which it gives way to glorious buzzsaw fuzz. Both sections get our seal of approval and there's a full LPs worth of it on Bandcamp.

Falmouth producer SIGHT has coined a slow burning gem featuring the vocals of Florence Bird.

Thursday, 8 May 2014

National Screen Service

Ambient bliss, the work of National Screen Service.


Gothenburg's School make the kind of irresistible, propulsive indie-pop which invites repeat listens.

Burnt Palms

A short sharp hit of fuzzy garage indie from Californian trio Burnt Palms.


In releasing Yumi Zouma's EP earlier this year Cascine exceeded their already high standards. On this single taken from Brett's upcoming LP we glimpse an altogether glitzier side to their output albeit one featuring guest vocals from Kim of YZ.

Craft Spells

The second single from the new Craft Spells LP 'Nausea'.

Tuesday, 6 May 2014

Sterling Flow

Rapidly becoming a favourite at esoj, Sterling Flow has produced another languid beauty. It appears on Allegiance Vol 1, a new compilation which can be obtained here Bandcamp

Pale Seas

Sparse and throbbing is probably the best way to describe this interesting remix of Pale Seas by the enigmatically named Droppy.

Garden City Movement

Garden City Movement's latest for their upcoming EP on BLDG5 maintains their high standards.

Alice Boman

Take a couple of days off and Alice Boman goes and sneaks out another lesson in gossamer fragility. Remarkably lovely as ever.


Yet more technicolour, oddball pop music from Sydney's Fishing.
