Weepy French flower-metal act Alcest is set to drop their new album... today, apparently, though it's not yet available from US retailers and seems to be set for a January 17th release there, far as I can tell. Neige is back bitchez!

Just ordered this. Anyone else pick it up or hear it yet? Even though I made this topic and posted the link to the YouTube listen, I prefer to wait until I get my CD-quality audio and can play it the traditional way. I'm sure it won't disappoint. Whether it will live up to the first two albums I'm less sure.

      Seefeel founding member Mark Clifford releases an EP of scraping, singing guitar tone experiments today on ‘Playback EP’! Some fascinating textures and novel wrangling of harmonics for those who like to hear ostensibly familiar sounds from an oblique angle.

      A video for the first track ‘Blue-Fi I:
      “The basic tracks for ‘Playback’ were recorded 15 years ago during a four hour session at Playback Studios in Brighton, and with a resident engineer more accustomed to recording Eastern European orchestras than experimental guitar music. It was a time in my life when I needed to break some emotional glass and the intensity of the sound in the studio succeeded in doing that. Over the following weeks I played around with the stems at home largely using a GRM Tools plugin. The tracks were kind of shelved with the intention of eventually finishing them as an album but this was never fully realised.”

      New album on Kranky from this artist based in New Orleans. 
      Sort of mix between Liz Frasier's ethereal vocals and the churning guitar noise from Kevin Shields.
      Not as pretty as the 'tinsel fairy light' world the Scottish trio inhabit. This is a bit darker. Recommended.

      Tegan Northwood is an Australian singer/songwriter/producer. I first heard her track 'Close' on Pandora a few years back and was impressed:
      I proceeded to find and purchase the album it came from, 'Self-Raising Flower', a striking mixture of shoegaze, dreampop, ambient and IDMesque elements:
      https://endgamerecords.bandcamp.com/album/self-raising-flower
      She released another LP in 2008 called 'Last Days of Home'
      https://endgamerecords.bandcamp.com/album/last-days-of-home
       
      ... And now, today Tegan's released a new EP of tracks called 'Wherever You Are'. Some of you may dig this, highly recommended for fans of Cocteau Twins, Lush, Washed Out, Seefeel, etc:

      I was obsessed with this group's EP Chamber Dreams from some years back, really good dream pop in the vein of Cocteau Twins / early 90s moody dream pop. They have an LP coming out now, little more upbeat but still digging the vocals and production a lot.
