Wow, it’s amazing to see how many fantastic indie (dream) pop records already came out this year. For instance Bloom by Beach House, Oshin by DIIV – well, this one is maybe not typical indie pop, but whatever – or most recently Wild Nothing ’s stunning Nocturne LP. It might well be that soon we can add another album to this list: Calendar by Rostov-on-Don’s Motorama , which will be released on Talitres [...]
Actually "Laika" was released late last year, together with a bunch of other great tracks on Twin Cabins debut album I'm Sure . It's just too good not to share, though.

Already being part of the recent guerolitoplaylist 08|12 , Lucerne's indie darlings Alvin Zealot are readying their second album Flux for a 21st of September release.

The album will be out via Goldon Records . stream | Flux
