Out This Week - 7th January 2012

The Sinclair Sinclair - Dreamer Of The Dreams


We first sang the praises of Estonian dreampop/indie band The Sinclair Sinclair last year with the release of their free download single 'Feel'. All four songs on 'The Dreamers Of Dreams' are works of beauty, but if we had to pick one then 'Dreamer Of The Dreams' wins by a nose thanks to its throbbing, slow build-up, luscious atmospherics and superb melody. Please can we have an album soon?

Milk+ - Venus Breakdown


In just a couple of weeks, Austrian experimental rock band Milk+ will be releasing their album 'Band On Wire'. We can expect them to be journeying through prog, punk, jazz, metal, indie and probably much more besides. As a forerunner the band have just made this ace new video for previous EP track 'Venus Breakdown' which will also be on the album.

Haiku Salut - Los Elephantes


An all-girl trio from the Derbyshire Dales, Haiku Salut's music is, as their name may suggest, a little bit more exotic sounding. Their debut album 'Tricolore' is due for release in March and here they're giving us a sample of what's to come. 'Los Elephantes' fuses sounds from far and wide, having classical piano as its lead, they gradually add layers of French accordion and an Asian flavour to create a great dreamy instrumental.

Wooden Wand - Southern Colorado Song


This ominous sounding piece of Americana/alt-rock is taken from Wooden Wand's new album 'Blood Oaths Of The New Blues' which is out today. Based around Kentucky singer-songwriter James Jackson Toth, theirs is a spooky and haunting take on Cosmic American Music and 'Southern Colorado Song' encapsulates this brilliantly.

OBLIGATORY RECORD OF THE WEEK

Theatre Royal - Death On The River


Medway band Theatre Royal released their exceptionally good album 'At The End Of The River, The Sea...' towards the end of last year, we got very excited about it then, and now that they've put out one of the highlights, 'Death On The River', as a free download single it's served as a reminder of just what a great record it was. This is purely and simply an amazing song with a amazing chorus that moves into your brain and sets up home their like the most welcome of guests. Spread the word, these guys deserve to be recognised as one of the UK's best current guitar bands.
