Wrong Way is a new independent record label specialising in Psychedelia, Shoegaze, Spacerock, Leftfield and Krautrock. Vinyl is our passion.

A match made in heaven … UK’s tonal magicians 93MillionMilesFromTheSun and Presents For Sally have been friends for a long time, and UK’s Wrong Way Records finally brought them together on a limited edition 8 track pink and yellow split vinyl.

Doncaster’s 93MillionMilesFromTheSun have four studio albums, a compilation and a good amount of EP’s under their belt, and the whole lot of them managed to seduce our ears in an irresistible way. The four songs by Nick Noble continue the path in a remarkable way and offer the listeners a wonderfully sparkling, highly catchyshoegaze/noise pop wall-of-sound, filled with swirling guitars, fuzzy reverberation, psychedelic injections, acoustic colours and crunchy splinters, accompanied by Nick’s emotional vocals and coated with an embracing melancholic twist. From the epic, dynamically circling opener “I’m Waiting” to the closing gem “Edge Of Nowhere” with its romantically swirling, yearning sunrise atmosphere – the band passionately mixed an addictive and magic cocktail.
Presents For Sally first emerged on the radar in 2008 when the band’s song “Flowers Falling Sideways” appeared on the line-up for a shoegaze compilation entitled “The Secret Garden”. Since then, the band served us two splendid full-length trips as well as several captivating singles and EP’s. The four songs on this split album confirm once more that Presents For Sally are one of the most talented crews to surface on the shoegaze/indie rock radar: the band’s way to create tonal diamonds that run the gamut from pop sensibility to reverberant atmospheres and crashing wall-of-sound spirals that beg to be played at high volumes is highly remarkable. Matt Etherton, Anna Etherton and Phil Russel continue their drop of magnetically alluring, irresistibly melodic treats. From the groovy’n’spicy mid-tempo opener “An Arms Reach Away” (sung by Matt) to smooth’n’relaxing pearls with a dreamy vibe like “1000 Magic Lands” (sung by Anna), the band created a tempting and delightful sound journey from start to finish.

This is the fourth album by the melodic shoegaze trio from Doncaster, South Yorkshire, England. The album came out in May, but I didn’t get it until a few months later. I liked their earlier stuff, but this one really hit me hard. It was all I could listen to for about a month. It’s worth pointing out that they also released an EP of Ride covers this year, and it’s quite good. In a connected way, this album reminds me so much of that period of time when Ride was riding the wave of Nowhere and things were going really well for them. Before Britpop forced them and other UK shoegazers to adapt their sound to whatever it was that NME and Melody Maker would write favorable things about. Before even the label bosses made their shoegaze bands write Britpop stuff.

93mmfts have created an album of deeply saturated textural assaults that hynotically welcome you with fuzzed melodies and indistinct vocals. If droning feedback and emotive songs of mystery are your thing, then these guys really do have the goods.

93MillionMilesFromTheSun are a melodic shoegaze trio from Doncaster, South Yorkshire,  I’ve posted about the band before, and I put spaces between the words, but it’s my understanding that the official way to do it is without spaces. . They’ve been making records since 2008, but the only constant member has been Nick Noble (aka “Nick Mainline”). It’s hard to get an accurate count, but since 2009, they’ve released four proper albums, a bunch of EPs and a bunch of singles and special releases. This year alone, they’ve released the four-song Watch Her Fall EP, a three-song EP of Ride covers entitled Ride, the four-song Nothing Left Inside EP, and then the new album Fall Into Nothing, which has 15 songs and clocks in a chunky 72 minutes. They also, apparently, reissued the 2012 album Towards The Light. This is a band that I knew about for a long time, but I only started listening to them at the end of last year.
