Blue Rev is the name of the just-announced new LP from Toronto’s always-excellent Alvvays, and “Pharmacist” is a pedal-hopping blast of shoegaze history and its narcotic first single. Out from October 7th on Polyvinyl, you can pre-order transparent-crystal-vinyl, marbled-blue-vinyl, CD, cassette and bundled editions of the album from their webstore or from Bandcamp now.
Nothing’s Ever Fine is the resonant title of the new album from Elise Okusami’s Oceanator, and here is its razor-edged, raucous and relatable “Bad Brain Daze”. Out from April 8th courtesy of Polyvinyl, you can pre-order black-hole-vinyl, pink-vinyl, CD and cassette editions of the LP along with other creative merch from Bandcamp, and you can get it from the label’s webstore as well.
Conversational yet poetic, carefree with an edgy cool, “Headlines” is the kind and communal brand-new single from Toronto’s Charlotte Cornfield. You can find streaming links for it right here.

A live wire exposed and showering sparks, “Hurt A Fly” is the ochre-toned brand-new single from Boston’s Squirrel Flower.

You can pre-order colored-vinyl, cassette, CD, bundled and digital versions of it from Bandcamp now.
