April 2018, a "Magnificent 7" playlist
From the city of Angers, one of France indie strongholds, La Houle have just released a really good album that mixes many influences around Shoegaze, indie, Lo-fi and above all have kept French touch in the arrangements and the voices. I love it. Hope you will too:
Poland has some of the most interesting Post-Rock bands. Those Who Dream by Day is one of them. They got A place in the top ten best debuts in the world according to Post-rock. This is a concept album that in its essence describes the friendship of the band's members.
Alien Lizard are also from Poland, though get ready to get into a much more hallucinogenic and psychedelic music universe:
From Melbourne Australia, Lowtide provides us with very nice 2018 album. This is my favourite songs from their work:
