Peaness – What’s The Use?

Chester indie-pop trio Peaness recently announced news of their forthcoming debut album, scheduled for release next year, and unveiled a first glimpse of the bright punky fuzz-pop delights in store with the release of the first single from the LP ‘What’s The Use?’ through their own Totally Snick Records imprint. Originally scheduled for release in summer 2020, but delayed for the same reasons everything else has been over the past couple of years, it came with a wonderful video collage of life in the band pre-pandemic, and with every delay and canceleld show the song and video became more special to them. Commenting on the track, the band said “Did you feel like screaming into a pillow at all these past 18 months? Same!”

Watch the video below and get a free download of the track to whet your appetite for the album to come.

Toby Goodshank – Baby I Feel Like I Just Got Cut In Half

Former Moldy Peaches guitarist and prolific solo artist Toby Goodshank is another musician with an intriguing LP due for release in 2022 – Truth Jump Fall is out on 21st January via BB*Island Records, and if today’s track ‘Baby I Feel Like I Just Got Cut In Half’ is anything to go by, it’s a date worth pencilling into your diary.

Originally released in 2011, but until now only available as a home-pressed CDR, the album was recorded under the watchful eye fellow ex-Moldy Peach Jack Dishel with the aim to make “every song sound like it could be someone’s favourite song of all time.” I guess with its vinyl & CD reissue next month you’ll find out if that someone is you – on this evidence I reckon there’s a pretty good chance.
