Listen | Meltybrains? stream the big rumble of ‘Lincoln’

Meltybrains? are back once again with more new music, this time the group’s latest single ‘Lincoln’. With its rumbling beat undercurrent and floating foreground, Meltybrains? ‘Lincoln’ is a song of textural juxtaposition and delight. The easing tension of the track showcases the group’s ability to be utterly indefinable in terms of genre. Ambient, electronic, post-rock… the list of influences found […]

Press Play | Cat’s Eyes release the epic ‘Chameleon Queen’

Psych-opera duo Cat’s Eyes have released their brand new single, the full-scale epic ‘Chameleon Queen’.  A Bona Fide musical blockbuster, Cat’s Eyes new single ‘Chameleon Queen’ is certainly not short on ambition. A collaborative project from Faris Badwan (the Horrors) and Canadian operatic singer Rachael Zeffira, Cat’s Eyes sound is a big unwieldy thing. Part retro psychedelia, part opera their […]

Review | Tigwara – Tigwara E.P.

The Last Mixed Tape reviews Tigwara, the self-titled debut E.P. from alternative-rock band Tigwara. Ambition seems to be the order of the day with Tigwara’s first extended play. Looking for a common ground between large-scale American alternative-rock and the current Irish post-punk revivalism, Tigwara go big but enclosed with Tigwara E.P.
