Molly are a duo based in Innsbruck, Austria comprising Lars Andersson on guitars and Phillip Dornauer on drums. But this isn't your standard raucous guitar-drums indie garage duo, Molly are more akin to the sweeping densely populated sounds of Explosions in the Sky or Sigur Rós. Occasionally toning things down a notch to Slowcore territoty. Put it this way, everything is slow and that ain't no bad thing.

Pink Noise is apparently a setting on some old analogue synths which "sounds like the world is ending". Pink Noise is also the name of the debut album from Swedish shoegazers Echo Ladies.  It's a sub 30 minute, eight track blast of angst and brooding dark pop, fitting music for an era where it feels like the world could actually end at any second. That's not to say that this album is 100% doom and gloom, you could easily knock a few percentage points off that.

After releasing Innerland as a limited edition tape (which instantly sold out) in 2017, ex- Engineers man Mark Peters has "relandscaped" it into a full album featuring two brand new tracks "Gabriel’s Ladder" and "May Mill". All of the tracks on the record are named after places and landmarks in Peters' native North West and the album as a whole is themed around the industrial heritage of the area. The resulting collection is predominantly ambient but with pulsing beats, occasionally reaching electric levels of motoric euphoria.

Moon Diagrams is the recording project of Deerhunter co-founder and drummer Moses John Archuleta and Lifetime Of Love is his debut album, put together over a ten year period. It's been an eventful ten years in the real world and that really shows on this record which, in stylistic terms, has its ups and downs (mainly downs). The disorienting beauty of opening track "Playground", resplendent with distant choral tones and foreboding ambience is quite the introduction to the project.

The gist Album number two from everyone's favourite mischeivous noise makers The music Two years on from their colossal debut Dying, Spectres have returned with a new album, and they don't seem to have mellowed much. Tracks like "Welcoming The Flowers" will be essential listening for anyone who thought the band had been holding something back on their previous releases. Yes this album contains many songs that best anything from Dying, or even their excellent remix album Dead in terms of sheer sonic barrage. It's pretty amazing then that this is such a pleasurable listen.

The gist XAM Duo hit the ground running with their improvisational-experimental debut The music The biography of XAM Duo is a curious one. It's essentially a continuation of XAM, the solo project of Hookworms' Matthew Benn, who decided that he needed a collaborator and some general good company after touring his debut EP Tone Systems as a solo artist. That collaborator came in the form of friend-of-a-friend Christopher Duffin of fellow Leeds experimentalists Deadwall.

The gist Not so difficult second album, despite the 10 year gestation The music 10 years on from their acclaimed debut album, The Early Years have finally returned with a new album on a new label, hopping from Beggars Banquet to Sonic Cathedral (who also trickled out a few of the band's interim singles and EPs). II opens with the immediate and accessible "Nocturne", which blends swirling psychedelia with 80s underground synth-pop and new wave.
