Gameboy by Bronto Skylift from Bronto Skylift on Vimeo.

The Orkney Islands-based duo of Bronto Skylift have released a video for ‘Gameboy’ from their typically devastatingly heavy ‘White Crow record.  Fans of ‘Strap It On’ era Helmet will surely lap-up those thick, staccato riffs.  I’ve had the pleasure of seeing these guys live before and the near enough blew my head off.

Similarly, Glaswegian Drone-Rockers The Cosmic Dead also have a new video, or at least a new track, previewing on Youtube, from their forthcoming eponymous cassette release, due to be issued by Who Can You Trust Records?.  An epic mind-bending journey of Hawkwind/Can proportions.

The rather splendid Hibernate Records has a brand new sampler available for free download featuring Japanese Ambient guitarist Hakobune, the brilliant Ithaca Trio and Slovakian experimentalist Strom Noir, amongst its impressive 11 strong track list

Esmerine returns with their first record in six years, the duo founded by Bruce Cawdron (Godspeed You! Black Emperor) and Beckie Foon (Thee Silver Mt. Zion) now expanded to a four-player ensemble. La Lechuza is dedicated to the late Lhasa de Sela, a close friend and collaborator of all four member of the group, and features an unreleased version of her song “Fish on Land,” recorded with Beckie and Bruce during sessions for Lhasa’s final album.

La Lechuza will be released on CD and 180gLP and is available for pre-order now. More info, including samples, can be found on our official release page. Releasing 07 June.
