A little under a year ago we announced the intention of definitely possibly maybe resurrecting our previous incarnation, NO LOVE, as an “indie-rock” imprint. This was pretty much for the sole purpose of releasing a cassette by a friend’s band, but that discussion sort of faded away somehow and now they seem to have broken-up.
In the meantime we jumped on the chance to give an ecstatic “yes” (instead of the regretful “no” we’d prepared) to Rainboard as we were doing this thing anyway.
And thank heavens because The Midnight Slide is a corker set of ’90s alt inspired noisy shoegaze and space-rock, fuzzily psychedelic with no waves to be found. Not entirely a throw-back to the pre-grunge post-punk era of youths who were sonic or dinosaurs who were junior, it’s current to the noise-rock scene. It has the seasoned, mature sound of alt-rock veterans and the visceral edge of upstart indie-punks.
We’re releasing it, and launching the imprint, on December 31st, 2014. You can “pre-order” it now (inverted commas because we’ll ship immediately, holidays allowing) and take a listen below.
