Yep - once again my mailbox is flooded and tonight it's my intention to do something about it. So for the next two hours I'll be reading mails and messages, and hopefully be listening to some great music as well!
J.A. recommends US shoegaze trio Shields (obviously this band must be named after Kevin Shields). How he does it, I don't know, but J.A. certainly is an expert in finding new and interesting bands!

Speaking of shoegaze...The Panda Riot debut album She Dares All Things has finally been released. You can order it from the band's webpage.
