The Israel based gaze-rock duo Saint God released the two track single Narasvette on the 6th.

The title track, like a chamsin, fills the room with an oppressive dust storm and a sense of isolation which wraps around the listener in a screen of distortion. Causing the mind to loose sense of relative perspectives and becoming ever more disposed to merely finding bearings.
The malcontent of the sounds of Narasvette (available on bandcamp) wrack the mind into shattered fragments as the shards of silicate graze over the audience leaving them feeling as though their mind has been scrubbed with a pumice-stone.
The South Korea based EDM duo Southway have occasionally featured since 2013.
Southway – Sirens
To arise most recently is a track that takes Southway in to pastures new, a field they chew on happily as the emphasis of electronic sympathetica is replaced by a more crunchy sound in Sirens as the duo replace the lead configuration of warming synths with pulsing electronic drum beats which find the listener swaggering across the dance-floor in première danseuse mode.
Today seems to be a day of catching up with bands not featured for a few years. The Indian blues-rock quartet Grey Shack last appeared in 2013.

A couple of tracks have surfaced this week one of which was Country Song which finds Grey Shack letting the guitar out of the bag to fly up and down the fret-board along with the instantly recognisable growling vocal and whisky soaked barrels of sound that sign-posts the music.
