The 2nd Model Railway Exhibition ep "Lets Make A Vow" will be released shortly ( exact date still a mystery ). 4 of the 5 songs recorded before singer Vanessa left the band. The 3 songs thus far streamed from the ep on their Soundcloud sound pretty good, this one definitely on my "BuyMeAPie" future shopping list on my iPad.
As always Dufflecoat are on the money with another excellent forthcoming split release featuring Apple Orchard & The Proctors. Woah !! Get ready :) . Recent releases still available from Andy B/Sex Sux ( split ), Gentle Isolation & Silent Love.
"And Putting Love Away" is the name of a forthcoming cassette from Japan's Canopies and Drapes, a follow-up to last years release "Violet Lilly Rose Daisy"
A rough demo from The Hobbes Fanclub, one suspects something that may appear on the upcoming Shelflife release....insert cliche - "highly anticipated"... insert modern parlance - "mad good". Meantime as we wait, a couple of live videos on their ReverbNation page.
Love/Comes are 5 piece Malaysian band who released their debut "Paraphernalia" ep last year , self released ( a split with Partimelovers ). They have also put a great new track "Summer House" up for d/l on their bandcamp. "His Gesture of Love" was also on the SEA Indie Blog's Malaysia Indie Scene "Mighty Melody'" comp.
Number Line Records is a label from Manila, their latest release being from Outerhope, an ep called "No End in Sight". They also released the excellent Some Gorgeous Accident "Imaginary Lines" ep last year, both eps ( and all the other Filipino bands on the label ) are available as free d/l either at the Number Line website or bandcamp.
"Fix Me Up" is a track on "Fountayne Mountain", the 2nd release from The See See, which has just been released, grab y'self a copy via 'ere
Khristine Anne is the latest Little Treasure, the 'Would You Like Some Tea" from Philippines band Archaster. Again another label always always on the money :)
Les Bicyclettes Del Belsize is the latest Charlie Darling outfit, turning out a bucketful / a swathe of pure pop via soundcloud, as always in a prolific yet mysterious fashion.
Post Modern Team hail from Osaka in Japan, who have released 3 free eps thus far via bandcamp, the latest "Never Let You Down" featuring today's Moz cover.
I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream are from Berlin and earlier this year release a Self Titled 6 track ep on cassette ( and digi-form ), which is available via their bandcamp.
