LISTEN HERE

Titled ‘In The Pink of Condition’ and produced by Cate Le Bon, the album is released via Heavenly Recordings on Monday 2nd of February.

LA via Cardiff songwriter H Hawkline has been making underground waves with his self-described “strange pop” for a few years now, but it’s with latest album ‘In The Pink Of Condition’ that he’s set to make a big splash.”NME — 8/10

“Though now resident in Los Angeles, Huw Evans is carrying on the finest traditions of European psychedelic pop on his third album…In The Pink of Condition is very much Evans own, though, with his spiky melodies and surreal, nightmarish images about “a pack tongues” and “cut glass crystal everywhere” lingering long after being spun.” — Uncut — 8/10

“Melodic hauntologist Huw Evans’ third album has some of his finest wonky pop tunes so far.” — DIY — ★★★★☆

New Video Alert | Hooton Tennis Club’s video for debut single ‘Jasper’

Screen shot 2015-01-14 at 12.15.37

Noisey are premiering the video for Hooton Tennis Club’s forthcoming single ‘Jasper.’

WATCH HERE:

Hooton Tennis Club are four good friends from cultural capital of the world, Liverpool. The place where beers are cheap, the Beatles were formed, and it’s perfectly acceptable to wear a tracksuit to the pub. They’re currently signed to Heavenly Recordings.

What the critics say: “What sounds like a lyrical eulogy to a late friend set to lovely, languid, vaguely Teenage Fanclubbish music” — Alexis Petridis, the Guardian

Today’s premiere, “Jasper”, is produced by fellow Merseysider Bill Ryder-Jones (The Coral). The track was recorded at his Mum’s house, so you imagine the band had lots of cups of lukewarm tea and biscuits delivered to the studio while they laid down this beauty of a song. Like Alexis said in the Guardian, there’s elements of Teenage Fanclub’s poppy melodic charm, but it’s been given a bit of a sheen that keeps it looking forward optimatically, rather than glancing into the rear mirror of power pop’s past. Watch above and enjoy.” — NOISEY

Jasper will be released as part of a double A-side with the track ‘Standing Knees’ on Monday 23rd February.

The single was produced by fellow Merseysider Bill Ryder Jones and will be available to purchase as a limited 7″.

Pre-order the 7″ HERE.

The four piece are also playing some UK dates supporting our very own H Hawkline as well as a hand full of headline shows including a hometown gig at The Shipping Forecast, Liverpool.

Full Dates

06 Sheffield, The Harley (w/ H Hawkline)
13 Nottingham, The Chameleon Arts Cafe (w/ H Hawkline)
15 Leeds, Brudenell Games Room (w/ H Hawkline)

Hooton Tennis Club announce their debut single Jasper / Standing Knees

hooton-tennis-club-press

We are pleased to announce that on Monday 23rd February Hooton Tennis Club will release their debut single Jasper / Standing Knees.

The single was produced by fellow Merseysider Bill Ryder Jones and will be available to purchase as a limited 7″.

Pre-order the 7″ HERE.

DIY Magazine are premiering the 1st A-side track, ‘Jasper’ which is now available to stream:

Steeped in classical influences, ‘Jasper’ has the attitude of a last limbed, sunken soul and the spirit of a wild awakening. The Liverpool group sing about wasting time in galleries, finding strange truths in the mundane empty hours. Half deadpan and dead-ended, half sharp as a knife, at once they mimic the easeful melodies of Teleman and the emotion-wrung edge of Pavement.

The track’s produced by Bill Ryder Jones, formerly of The Coral. He even let them use the studio in his mum’s house — a lovely gesture.“
DIY Magazine

Like J Mascis, Hooton Tennis Club seem to exude an effortless narcotic charm, creating a warm fuzzy, hypnotic, meandering melancholic sense of languor.“
The VPME

“It’s a wonderfully fuzzy slice of guitar pop. No doubt in awe of Teenage Fanclub and Guided By Voices, there’s a real sense of Englishness to the songwriting – whether that’s in the downbeat melodies, or the lyrics which talk of a wet Wednesday.“
Clash Magazine

An effortless slice of languid lo-fi in the classic Teenage Fanclub, Pavement, Guided By Voices tradition, full of unhurried chord changes and heavy-lidded drumming.“
Northern Transmissons

Named after the sign at the end of their road, the inventive four piece offer a glimpse of lo-fi lethargy with a sparkle that still breaks through the eyes of the song. They’re like a Beckett play but with more drugs and sex. ‘Jasper’ only goes to reaffirm this with it’s lo-fi simplicity and delivery mirrored in it’s romanticising of the mundane.“
Far Out Magazine

So, so happy this is seeing the light of the day again. One of the best songs that surfaced from HTC last year, now juiced up and rereleased as a 7.″
Don’t Need Melody

To co-inside with the single release, the four piece are playing a handful of UK headline shows, a few support dates with our very own H Hawkline and a hometown show at The Shipping Forecast in Liverpool.

Full Dates

06 Sheffield, The Harley (w/ H Hawkline)
13 Nottingham, The Chameleon Arts Cafe (w/ H Hawkline)
15 Leeds, Brudenell Games Room (w/ H Hawkline)

WATCH: King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard live at The Shacklewell Arms

Screen shot 2014-12-15 at 12.03.24

In November King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard performed a fantastic sold out show at The Shacklewell Arms. It was a mind bending experience for everyone involved and now you can relive it.

The 405 have premiered a video of their belter of a track Head On/Pil:

Earning themselves some well deserved hype, it’s their live sets that will truly blow you away. Luckily for us one of their performances in London last month was captured by Soundyoucansee, as part of their ‘Live at The Shacklewell’ series.

With just one song and close to twenty minutes of mapped out madness, this clip shows just how captivating these seven Aussies are.The 405

The bands new record “I’m In Your Mind Fuzz’ reached great critical acclaim:

They’re too willfully mad to emulate Tame Impala’s success, but if you’re after freaking out, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard’s outrageous noise deserves attention.“
9/10 NME Magazine

As bonkers as their name…brilliant and thrilling“
Irishtimes, ★★★★

They’re at their most exciting when they drone, but not in the mid-paced , two-chord way of so much modern psychedelia: their drone is played at Ramones pace, with Keith Moon fills from the two drummers, and thus the opening four tracks here meld into one 13-minute sprint through the inner wardrobes of your mind.“
The Guardian, ★★★★

Throughout this album’s viscerally thrilling, and expertly motif-filled. As such, it rates amongst the best three or four post-millenial psychedelic rock records.“
MOJO , ★★★★

The band’s fourth album in two years comes with no warnings, and no regulations. I’m In Your Mind Fuzz is the full trip, complete with full on acid-soaked head-rush interspersed with momentary doses of bliss.“
The Line Of Best Fit , Album of The Week

PURCHASEANNABEL DREAM READER

“Impressive debut from Brighton three-piece…there’s bags of melodic nous just below the surface“
Uncut

“The band’s debut album sounds how Jack White would be if he were as goth as he looks, or like the PIXIES’ Black Francis on one of his more manic days, or, even, like how The Horrors used to, when they were at their most primal… It’s an impressive first LP
Loud and Quiet

“Spend some time with ‘Annabel Dream Reader’ and you’ll begin to feel like you’re listening to an album with your head submerged in a pool of mercury: it’s heavy; wavy; you’ll feel very high and a little sick”
Crack Magazine
