I’ve been dreaming for a new DREAMERS song for quite some time now, so I’m much delighted that the now LA-based “cosmic rock” trio are back with rambunctious Screws, which will be featured on the band’s upcoming EP, due early summer. DREAMERS also announced a 31-date U.S. headlining tour kicking off on September 13th in San Diego. Screws is an exultant alt rock anthem, with the band’s signature spacey flourishes and soaring choruses. Grab the song, here. Find out about DREAMERS’ fall tour, here.

It only took a few seconds for me to become a Mazy fan. That’s how gloriously intoxicating the Sydney trio’s spacey psychedelia is on new song Enemies. The band, who just signed to Sweat It Out, have melded Tame impala’s glistering grandeur with Washed Out’s heady chillwave, plus they seem to have sprinkled it all with some of Cults’ charming indie/synthpop, too! Enemies, which arrives with a wonderfully quirky video, is only Mazy’s second single. The band released their debut single Heliar late last year, which is also a must listen gem. Stream the lusciously pulsing indie electro song below. It’s no wonder Mazy has been making waves back at home in Australia with their delicately organic, powerfully electronic music. Enemies is available via major platforms, here.

I was really hoping I’d get to see Wallows again at one of the many showcases they played at for SXSW last week, but alas, it wasn’t in the stars. But at least I was lucky enough to see them when they sold out the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco earlier this year, and what a show that was, too! The Los Angeles based band, whose ranks include actor Dylan Minnette, stirred the crowd into a frenzy with their infectious songs. Today, Wallows, who are on a fast ascent in the indie scene, return with news of their debut EP Spring as well as a first taste from the record named These Days. Spacey psych rock meets breezy sashaying indie rock on the track. These Days kind of reminds me of Noah and the Whale gone Tame Impala, which is a recipe I quite like, apparently. Wallows debut EP will feature six new songs, all of which I can’t wait to hear. These Days is available from iTunes, here. Follow Wallows on their website, here, for show announcements.

Flowers are fragrantly romantic, but with the addition of an extra “s”, they become even more divine and a treat for the ears, as exemplified by HALFNOISE, or Nashville artist (and Paramore drummer) Zac Farro, on his new single. Flowerss is the title track from HALFNOISE’s next EP, due out May 4th via Nashville-collective Congrats!. Farro and his band drench us with glossy, spacey 70s psychedelia on the alt rock jam.

I’m ebulliently bouncing in my seat right now to the latest from Sego. The Los Angeles based duo deliver some foxy art rock and synthrock on Cigarette Kids with a wry drawl. It’s a droopy curling, whimsically dallying delight of epic proportions. We almost feel like the titular characters, coolly hanging out on the neighborhood corner, playfully tousling each others’ hair and tapping our feet to the boombox we’ve brought along with us. Cigarette Kids is a hazy distorted trip to suburbia, where it provides an escape from the ever mundane. It’s Arcade Fire from The Suburbs gone warped and psychedelic, heady and contorted. Stream Sego’s prior singles via Soundcloud, here.

Palace Winter released their debut album Waiting For The World To Turn last year on Tambourhinoceros (a fine label whose name is always fun to say, hard to spell). The pair from Denmark had caught our attention prior to its release with their flossy warm single Soft Machine. Now, a full year later, life repeats itself as Palace Winter announce their next album Nowadays and share a spacey shimmering, synth droning new single Take Shelter. The introspective psych rock and synth-rock jewel is the lead single from Nowadays, due out May 4th on 2018.

I know I’m truly digging a band when I can’t seem to stop sharing each and every one of their new singles as they appear. Helsinki’s Lake Jons has quickly becoming one of our most regular guests on IHM with their blissful blend of space pop and psych folk. Lake Family is as euphoric a track as the buzzing band has put out, a driving progression of dreamy synths and meditative vocals, embellished with a rambunctious pattern of percussion. It arrives ahead of Lake Jons’ self titled debut album this Friday on AntiFragile Music, which will explore themes of introspection, existentialism, and human relationships, with lyrics detailing a quieter existence. Lake Family can be streamed or purchased from various outlets, here. You can re-visit Lake Jons’ prior releases on Soundcloud, here, as we count down the days to that debut album on Friday.

Let’s take a woozy trip down psychedelic lane with Stephan Kreussel, an enigmatic bedroom producer and musician from South Africa who suddenly uploaded a collection of inaugural songs onto his Soundcloud just over a week ago. To be honest, we were stuck listening to all of these songs, and we had a very hard time deciding on a track to feature. But we finally decided to hone in on Mermaid, a dreamy chill psych rock and electronica song that channels a fascinating blend of Tame Impala, The Shins, and Homeshake. Mermaid has since racked up an impression amount of streams since we first came across it, but make sure you check out more of the mysterious newcomer’s music below. Stream Why Don’t You Love Me? and The Sweetest Thing, or listen to all of Stephan Kreussel’s fine tunes on Soundcloud, here.

Moon Duo will be releasing a new 12″ single later this month. It’ll includes two covers of classic rock tracks, including a rendition of The Stooges’ No Fun, as well as this spacey groover, their crisp snapping approach on Alan Vega’s 1980 single Jukebox Babe. It’s a sharp throbbing dazzler of a throwback dance punk cover with a vibe reminiscent of LCD Soundsystem and Arcade Fire’s later albums. I suppose you can call me a “jukebox babe” when there’s tracks like this one to jam out to. Moon Duo’s new single will be out on Janaury 19th via Sacred Bones. Pre-order, here

My cup runneth over with love for MGMT, particularly after they continue to release amazing new tracks off their forthcoming fourth album. On the heels of ever amazing Little Dark Age and When You Die comes a lyric video for new song Hand It Over, a spacey spiraling, synth glossy floater. The band has yet to announce when their new album will arrive. No doubt it’s one of the year’s most anticipated releases, and we can’t wait to pre-order. Get Hand It Over, here.
