Reading shoegazers Tripwires have unveiled four remixes of their track ‘Catherine, I Feel Sick’. The remixes from The Soft, Voltage Black, Solid Gold Death Star and latest Rocnation signing Boots present very different takes on the swirling original track, which is taken from the band's debut album Spacehopper, released last month through Frenchkiss Records (Bloc Party, Local Natives, The Antlers).


More Than Conquerors are set to release their debut album Everything I’ve Learnt on September 30th.


Do You Love the Sun will be released on August 26th, the first new Scud Mountain Boys album since Sub Pop released the critically-acclaimed Massachusetts in 1996.

After being out of contact for many years, original Scud Mountain Boys band members Joe Pernice (vocals, acoustic and electric guitars), Stephen Desaulniers (vocals, acoustic guitar, and bass), and Bruce Tull (electric guitar, lap steel, pedal steel) returned to the scene in late 2011, playing an almost-impromptu reunion in Cambridge, Mass. Soon after, the band had announced more shows and will reissue The Early Year via One Little Indian on July 8th, a compilation of their first two albums Pine Box and Dance the Night Away.
