)ut today:'Riviera' dream pop EP by Cocteau Twins' Robin Guthrie

Today brings the release of Robin Guthrie’s “Riviera” EP, his third release this year after October’s “Mockingbird Love” EP and November’s “Pearldiving”., his first full-length album in nine years.

The EP holds 4 tracks and will be available on limited-edition CD and as a digital download via Soleil Après Minuit with distribution in North America via Darla and in Europe by Cargo. Note that “Riviera” stands on its own as a release, apart from the album.

“I made this collection earlier this year while taking a break from recording ‘Pearldiving’. I found a common thread among several unfinished tunes, that curiously, they had all been written on the southern shore of some landmass or other in the northern hemisphere. I was pleasantly surprised when they all fell into place together and retained this atmosphere in my head,” says Guthrie.

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
