From Rarely Unable:
Drag City is pleased to welcome Circuit des Yeux to our roster with the October 20th release of Reaching For Indigo. Vocalist, composer, and producer Haley Fohr has been Circuit des Yeux since she was eighteen years old. Born in the Year of the Dragon in Indiana's own "Star City" - that's Lafayette, IN! - she released records regularly over the past two decades, including four full-length albums, along with several mini-albums and singles. And all the while she has played shows everywhere, bringing her sounds to the far -(and near-) flung cities of Earth. She has been based in Chicago since 2012.

The album is available for pre-order here.


Poison Blood: "Circles of Salt" (Relapse Records/Earsplit PR/Cvlt Nation/Soundcloud)

From Earsplit PR:
A collaboration between Horseback's Jenks Miller and Krieg's Neill Jameson born out of Miller's desire to write music that was an outlet for a more straightforward kind of aggression, POISON BLOOD's eponymous debut is a short but furious chronicle of cold, reptilian, sonic terror.

Poison Blood's self-titled EP will be out August 11th.  It's available for pre-order from Relapse Records.  


Golden Retriever: "Pelagic Tremor" (via Thrill Jockey Records/YouTube)

From Thrill Jockey Records:
On Rotations, Golden Retriever explore an ocean’s worth of sound, combining an intense emotional immediacy and meditative focus with strong melodicism and an organic, naturalistic approach to experimental electronic sound. In expanding their sonic palette to incorporate a full chamber ensemble the duo have crafted an album that is meditative, lush, and emotionally arresting.

Golden Retriever's Rotations can be ordered from Thrill Jockey Records.  The album was also reviewed at No Ripcord.
