Check out the new single from my pals in the UK band Dead Coast @deadcoastband, with Suffer’s Ready. Summery vibes punctuated by flute — how can you resist??
in my wishlist as a pre-order tomorrow (and the album is out on my birthday!), Toronto’s Tough Age (@toughage) have a new one, Which Way Am I, with part of proceeds supporting local agencies in Toronto & BC https://tough-age.bandcamp.com/album/which-way-am-i
Been a while since I’ve heard anything from Paris’ Travel Check —they were one of the first bands I found on Bandcamp back in the day! — but this new single on Howlin’ Banana is slick. Garage rock at its finest! https://howlinbananarecords.bandcamp.com/album/hate-the-night
Another fab EP of psych-tinged synth pop/synth-tinged psych pop, w/ echoes of Rob Crow projects, from pals in Vancouver’s RE/GEN @regenyvr. All proceeds support Unist'ot'en Camp legal fund & Hogans Alley Society https://softgoods.bandcamp.com/album/absence

And now time for a few on my wishlist and recently discovered. For those darker days, it's Vulgarite https://vulgarite.bandcamp.com/releases
a bit of Bossa Nova.
Fun demo from @automnezingg . As she says, more fuzz, more eyeliner! Discovered through another https://laceyspacecake.bandcamp.com/album/bedroom-demos
