“On their upcoming LP The New Life, Northern Ireland’s Girls Names are moving past the grey-hued ramshackle pop of their 2011 debut Dead to Me— says frontman Cathal Cully, in a press release, “Dead to Me literally was dead to us by the time it was committed to wax.” New Life, meanwhile, goes for a darker sprawl with bits of shadowy psychedelia, as shown on “Pittura Infamante”, its title referencing the Italian Renaissance genre of defamatory painting.” - Pitchfork
‘Pittura Infamante’ is taken from Girls Names’ forthcoming album, The New Life, out 18th Feb.

The Soft Walls - ‘House Concern’
Taken from the self-titled album, out 3rd December.
Pre-order LP here.
On 3rd December Tough Love will release the self-titled debut album from Brighton’s The Soft Walls.
Recorded over the space of nine months, The Soft Walls is the product of time spent in solitude by Cold Pumas member and Faux Discx overseer, Dan Reeves. Incorporating a broad palette of sonic textures that include psychedelic folk, ambient & found sounds, lo-fidelity garage, disjointed krautrock, and the more inward-looking mutations of house, the diverse range of influences on show ultimately forge what is a very singular and unique vision.
Thick with the fog of tape static, claustrophobic ambience and the cavernous effect applied to Reeves’ vocal, The Soft Walls conjures a similar turn-of-the-century anxiety as that of peers Women and Liars. However, there remains something suitably European in The Soft Walls’ unease, at once close heat, then slanting rain. It’s increasingly rare to find music of this type made in Britain and it’s the Otherness of The Soft Walls noise and invention that allows it to stand-alone.
Previously released via Reeves’ Bandcamp page and as a limited edition cassette on Suplex, Tough Love are now making the record available on limited edition vinyl (100 copies only) as well as through all the usual digital services.
