Merchandise have announced their first album since 2014’s After the End. It’s called A Corpse Wired for Sound, and it’s out September 23 on 4AD. They’ve also shared a video for a new song called “End of the Week,” and released their itinerary for a massive world tour. You can find those both below, along with the album art. Previously, they shared “Flower of Sex.”

A Corpse Wired for Sound was recorded in Tampa, Florida, and Rosà, Italy. The album’s title was inspired by a JG Ballard short story. “It’s about the truth of growing up,” frontman Carson Cox said of the record. “You can’t take your friends or lovers with you. It’s about finding peace with that loneliness.”

3. Right Back To The Start
4. End Of The Week
5. Lonesome Sound

Morgan Delt – Phase Zero (2016)

Sub Pop
Psychedelic Rock
2016-08-26
WEBRip V0 MP3

The invocation of classic west coast psychedelia that permeates Morgan Delt’s Sub Pop debut LP feels like a continuous sunrise, never concealing its influences yet perfectly putting its songs through a gauzy lens that blurs and obscures. Is such a thing even possible after witnessing umpteen reverb-jockeys creating their own take on the genre? Can anything truly different be done in the realm of being both original and reverent, wearing favorite records and artists’ moves on one’s sleeve? Definitely the case with our man here. After releasing a 6-song cassette in 2013 followed by a full length for the Trouble In Mind label, the California native now fine-tunes his sound world outwardly rather than honing in on a specific trajectory, allowing all of said influences to coexist together in a unique yet undoubtedly Californian vision.

The resulting 10-song collection, performed entirely by Delt, recorded in his Topanga Canyon studio, and mastered by JJ Golden, is a home-fi construction with a more subtle, brain-tickling character than its predecessor, and somewhat reflects a realist take on the flower power fantasy of 1967. Doused in echo and haze, slow chords lap in like Pacific waves, flanked by gentle whispers of multi-tracked, cooing vox, phased guitars and fuzz that calmly surrounds the listener’s head less than it jabs at the cortex.

The great thing about Delt’s approach to such history is (and sorry to sound harsh) that unlike too many of his so-called L.A. psych-rock peers, there’s no costume involved, no application of a conjured identity to match a specific image. He’s no psychedelic Civil War re-enactor, so to speak. It’s subtle and tactful revisionism without using psychedelia as a crutch/easy marketing tool and letting the sounds come out and make their own case.

It takes a creative mind to make psychedelic rock music – tablas, drones, hallucinatory vocal effects, and all – without slipping into cliché, but Delt can transport what would normally be a dark-n-druggy blanket into a much more optimistic and friendly listening experience. Despite his voice being channelled through hallucinatory effects, it’s warm and inviting, projecting a sense of hope (particularly in “Some Sunsick Day,” which evokes the hopeful “We’ll Meet Again” as the world explodes at the end of Dr. Strangelove, later covered by the Byrds). It’s more or less just an invite to watch the sun rise too.

Boys Forever – Boys Forever (2016)

‘Boys Forever’ is the debut solo album from Patrick Doyle, previously of Veronica Falls, The Royal We and Sexy Kids. The album is a tumultuous collection of splintering pop songs, underpinned by acid tongue lyrics and shivering vitriol.

Released on 5th August 2016 via new label Amour Foo, Boys Forever’s self-titled album is a tumultuous collection of splintering pop songs, underpinned by acid tongued lyrics and shivering vitriol, written and performed in its entirety by Doyle.

Having been a member of various bands for over a decade, Boys Forever is Doyle’s first solo project. Though born from disillusionment and despair and the insecurities of a brand new start, the resulting album is paradoxically sparky, gorgeous, swooning garage-pop, a perfect balance of bitter and sweet, happy and sad. Recorded by Andrew Schubert (togetherPANGEA, Wand, No Parents) at Golden Beat studios Los Angeles, the record captures the LA sun, while retaining the melancholic onslaught of the London winter in which it was written.

The ‘Voice In My Head’ video is a snapshot of Patrick’s visits to Los Angeles. He says: “Having recorded the album during overnight sessions the year before, I felt that when I returned to Los Angeles in March I wanted to see more of the city. My friend Mat picked me up and we drove around all day, trying to visit as many typically LA places as we could. We went to the Observatory, Hollywood High and Santa Monica Pier. Mat cut the footage together with some that I shot during recording sessions last year at Golden Beat in Glassell Park.”

of Montreal – Innocence Reaches (2016)

Of Montreal have announced a new album, Innocence Reaches. The follow-up to 2015’s Aureate Gloom and Snare Lustrous Doomings is out August 12 via Polyvinyl. The first single from the album, “it’s different for girls,” premiered today on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show. Listen to it and see the tracklist and cover art (made by frontman Kevin Barnes’ brother David to express his “wonderment for the female anatomy”) below.

In a press release, Barnes says he was influenced more than ever by contemporary music while making Innocence Reaches. “Forever I’ve been detached from current music,” he explains. “I got into this bubble of only being in some other time period. I came up picking apart the Beach Boys, the Beatles, and symphonic pieces. But last year, I was hearing Jack Ü, Chairlift, Arca, and others, thinking about low end and sound collage. It was an extra layer to geek out on.”

Track List:

Let’s Relate
Different for Girls
Gratuitous Abysses
My Fair Lady
Les Chants de Maldoror
A Sport and a Pastime
Ambassador Bridge
Def Pacts
Chaos Arpeggiating
Nursing Slopes
Trashed Exes
