  • Northwest trio Beat Happening are celebrating their 30th anniversary with the career-spanning retrospective collection Look Around, out November 20th via Domino. The 23-track compilation will be released on CD, gatefold double LP, limited edition royal blue cassette, and an exclusive LP edition which includes a limited edition yellow 7″ of “Indian Summer” and “Foggy Eyes”. Domino have also announced an album reissue series for the influential indiepop heroes which will kick off in 2016. [Pitchfork]

  • Are ’90s shoegaze darlings Lush reuniting? Reports are unconfirmed, but signs are pointing to yes! The band quietly launched a new website and Facebook page, and guitarist/vocalist Emma Anderson posted the mysterious message “7 Days” to Twitter. If our wishes come true, the band would join a list of shoegaze bands from that era who have recently had successful reunions, including Slowdive, Ride, My Bloody Valentine, and Swervedriver. Stay tuned for more information. [Under the Radar]
  • It’s been a while since we heard from Michigan-based producer Shigeto (real name: Zach Saginaw). Aside from some remixes for Sufjan Stevens and Hundred Waters, Saginaw has been quiet, but he breaks the silence on October 30th with the EP Intermission, released via Ghostly. Get a sneak peek with the new wave-inspired track “Do My Thing” below: [Stereogum]

  • We reported last month on the new project from Natasha Khan (a.k.a. Bat For Lashes) called SEXWITCH, and today we’ve got a full album stream to share. The debut finds Khan teaming up with producer Dan Carey and psych-pop band TOY to cover six ’70s psych-folk songs from around the globe. Check it out below. The self-titled album hits stores on September 25th via Echo/BMG. [Spin]
