[song] Sorry – Closer

Ahead of the release of their new album Anywhere But Here this Friday (on Domino Records), Sorry share the latest single from it, “Closer”. It is a beautiful and melancholic number that underlines their gentle yet quite haunting sound.

It follows the previously unleashed songs “There’s So Many People That Want To Be Loved”, “Key To The City” and “Let The Lights On”.

The duo would also play in Italy early next year, on February 22 in Milan (at Arci Bellezza) and on February 23 in Bologna (at Covo Club).

[song] Personal Trainer – Former Puppy

On November 4 Personal Trainer from Amsterdam will release their debut LP Big Love Blanket and now they are sharing the latest song from it, “Former Puppy” (and a video). It is another outstanding number in a string of singles — “The Lazer”, “Rug Busters”, “Milk”, and “Key of Ego”.

The band will also embark on the UK/EU tour soon, which will include dates in England, France, Belgium and the Netherlands, plus even more shows in early 2023. Find more details on that here.

Listen below. Pre-orders for the album are ongoing.

[song] LIFE – Hull Sky

What could be cooler than a great B-side? Fresh after the release of their latest LP North East Coastal Town, LIFE are back with the brand new song titled “Hull Sky”, which was written during the recording session for the album.

LIFE live in Berlin’19

Speaking of it vocalist Mez Green says: “Hull Sky sneers, stomps and powers along with themes of romance. Whilst it didn’t quite fit the feel of North East Coastal Town, we’re excited to release it as the B-Side to one of our favourite songs off the new album”.

A fresh number backs the latest single and highlight from the record “Shipping Forecast”, which also got the chaotic lo-fi performance music video.

Next week the group would also depart on their huge set of UK and EU tour dates. There would be two shows in Italy — on October 22 in Milan and October 23 in Bologna (find more information about the tickets on the band’s website).

[song] Julianna Riolino – Queen of Spades

Having teased us already with the singles “Lone Ranger” and “You”, Toronto-based artist Julianna Riolino (who is also known as a part of Daniel Romano’s The Outfit), shares another stunning cut “Queen of Spades”. It is a big alt-country number with that pop edge to give it a vivid and soulful flavor.

It is taken from her upcoming album All Blue, set for release on October 14 via You’ve Changed Records. She recorded it in August 2020 at the now-shuttered Baldwin Street Sound, and the LP was produced by Aaron Goldstein (credits with Cowboy Junkies, Ducks Ltd, Le Ren, Kiwi Jr).

[song] Fake Palms – Flags

Back in June Fake Palms, the project of Toronto-based musician Michael le Riche, announced the return with a new album called Lemons. He reintroduces the venture after a short break in which le Riche focused on his electro-synth project, Sauna.

So far we have heard several tracks from the record, and now, ahead of it arriving tomorrow (it marks the 100th release on the label Hand Drawn Dracula), he has shared one more preview — angular indie rock number “Flags”.
