Manners is the one-man project of Greg Beson, hailing from Portland, Maine, and apparently if you're located in the remote borderland of New England, you've more than enough time to imagine some of the creatively most exciting experimental folk there is right now - with its hazy guitar and heavily distorted cymbals, Greg's mellow voice, dreamlike, laid-back harmonizing and a gentle variation of tempi, Night Before will stick in your ear canal for days. Love is everywhere, most present right here.

Our favourite ex-Vivian Girls, ex-Crystal Stilts and ex-Dum Dum Girls drummer Frankie Rose finally has a band that features her own name, together with "the Outs". Well, though we loved her work with all the other wonderful retro outfits and we won't stop loving those bands now, still it sounds very exciting what we've just digested, Little Brown Haired Girl from their self-titled debut LP, out September 21 on our most beloved Slumberland.

Good things will come to you, just be patient. Evan Adams' rad project Top Girls had been on my radar for quite a while now since Transparent first showed some love for his beautiful track Not Enuff in early May, and before I could find some spare time to get back to this exciting kind of lo-fi r&b/ambient bedroom electronica, Adams dopped his rough diamond Faded Feeling into my inbox this very morning, one of the tunes that are included in his debut Attraction EP, out now digitally via Hi-Scores. Faded vocals over a distorted beat and a subtle dreamlike synth line is all I need to be happy right after waking up to another sticky Berlin summer day. And now, coffee.

Listen to Wild Nothing's splendid brand new track Your Rabbit Feet from his upcoming EP Evertide, the first on the just founded imprint Warmest Chord that will focus on the released records' design and packaging, putting out only very limited editions of the physical copies. (via Pitchfork)

Somerville's Gem Club are Christopher Barnes and Kristen Drymala, and they devoted themselves to wonderfully intimate and slow ballads, with a sad voice supported only by a piano, gentle strings and occasionally some subtle noises in the distance - that's all, but that's more than enough to create magic that leaves us baffled and spellbound.

Gem Club will have an EP ready by July 9, it will be available via their bandcamp page.

This is gonna be something really special: NFOP is officially psyched to announce the release of Ghost Animal's debut full length tape Summertime in Heaven (that's most likely gonna be the cover art above), thrown into the realms of us wretched mortals by our already defenselessly adored Summer Time In Hell. The cassette will feature eleven blissed out shoegazey surf pop tunes, all the fuzzy guitar magnificence you're possibly gonna need this summer.

In addition to the earlier featured California Summer pt. 1, In Your Room and Fever Not Dead, the amazingly talented Mr Avishai has kindly made available a couple of other tracks, the beautiful album's title track and its opener Change Your Mind, a brilliant track recorded in a manner Phil Spector would be proud of, probably Ghost Animal's most energetic and impulsive song to date. Moreover, we are blessed with another track, the Amdiscs-released EP only Found God, a slower, classically hazy Jesus and Mary Chain inspired gem with perfectly subtle lyrics. And now, go spark the hype.

Just very briefly, cause I really don't want you to miss this: Another video by NFOP darlings Yuck which they put on their blog last night. Weakend will be on the band's debut cassette EP, out soon on Mirror Universe.

HORSES is Patrick Eberman's delicate bedroom project, airy tunes made for dreaming without overemphasizing the dreamy, beautifully simple guitar lines playing simply beautiful little lullabies over hushed out synths or a subtle piano, sparse percussion and occasionally a hazy voice in the distant.

Some of HORSES' gorgeous beauties are free for download from his bandcamp site, while his debut tape Sincerely Jackie Chan has just been released by Solid Melts. Below, you can listen to the EP's By The Sea and By The Breeze, and to the brand new (roughly a day, to be exact) My Tired Heart, which I'd like to count as Eberman's finest so far.
