Chicago based multi-instrumentalist Michael Tenzer aka 'Eyes Behind The Veil' has released a stunning video to accompany the latest single entitled 'Blushed', lifted from his brand new full length sophomore album entitled 'Empathy' which had its full release via the Seattle based independent record label 'Hush Hush Records' back on the 22nd July 2016. With "Eyes Behind The Veil" Tenzer creates beautifully ethereal soundscapes that swirl gracefully within a sonic stew thats filled to the brim with shoegaze, drone, lo-fi and ambient frequencies.

RECORD COMPANY: Unsigned
Montreal band 'No Joy' are one of the genre's gems. Crafting intoxicating melodies, their dry wit and dark edges are a potent combination. 'Hare Tarot Lies' embodies this perfectly and is simply one of the best songs ever. So with all that in mind, I was pretty pleased to be asked to review their latest release, a short sharp shot of shoegaze. The EP 'Droolsucker' came out a few weeks back and travels from thunderous fury to mellifluous mellowness in just three tracks.
Drool Sucker by No Joy
They show off their deep, dark imaginations in 'A Thorn in Garlands Side' with ferocious guitars screaming, 'Xo (Adam's Getting Married)' is shades lighter in feel and sound, glimmering with a mischievous sense of humour. Closer 'Theme Song' is so melodious, with Jasamine and Laura’s vocals shimmering serenely.
'No Joy' are touring Europe in August with Poland, Germany and the UK on the list. Get out and see them.

'Sleepless' is eighteen minutes of driving psychedelic exploration that loops and arcs through layers of fuzzy experimental guitars, throbbing bass frequencies, those glorious synth licks and an intensely dark, rhythmic percussive repetition that collectively circumnavigates a hauntingly delicious hazy vocal line. Truly a work of art and bound to enthral your inner psych demon!
