3 Songs: On Repeat

Wray – “Pined”/”Jennifer” (The progressive Birmingham, AL based shoegaze trio are set to release their highly-anticipated sophomore album, Hypatia today via Communicating Vessels.  This time around, singer/bassist David Brown’s haunting vocals play a more prominent role, rising above the caterwauling wall of sound to inject more melody into their 80’s post-punk and garage-rock indebted sound.  The album also includes their unique take on Faust’s Krautrock classic, “Jennifer”.)     
Stream the standout single “Pined” with its stuttering yet propulsive rhythm and shimmering, soaring vocal melodies here:

Bloodiest – “Mesmerize” (The experimental Chicago six-piece - featuring current and former members of Russian Circles, Corrections House, and Yakuza – released their adventurous self-titled sophomore album today on Relapse Records.  Produced by Sanford Parker and guitarist Tony Lazzara, the band deftly contrasts cinematic film score and post-rock atmospherics with thunderous riffs and noise-addled psych-metal sludge to create an impressive genre-defiant sound.)
