Where Post Rock Dwells is currently streaming “In Exchange For A Memory” from Fort Worth, Texas-based experimental post-rock collective DRIVING SLOW MOTION. The stunning track comes by the way of the band’s forthcoming new full-length Arda set for release next month.

London art-punks FAMOUS reveal video for tender cut ‘Forever’

London’s Famous reveal new single Forever ahead of debut mini-album England. Their softest-edged cut to date, it’s a literary tinged art-rock tune eschewing the panicked chaos of previous releases in favour of an almost maudlin sentimentality. Forever tugs at your emotions, owing to vocalist Jack Merrett’s by turns resigned, matter-of-fact and desperate vocals, reminiscent of a Heroes-era David Bowie or Pavement’s Stephen Malkmus.
