The Sunday Reeds - Blues Rock from Australia

The Sunday Reeds

Be prepared to pull out a Takamura Nakiri as the The Sunday Reeds expound valedictory eulogies in a darkened and dank bedsit with music that forms ever tightening loops around the head. There is a definable beauty to gloom and this a band that is able to make the crimson emblazoned slashes of music seem so intoxicating and appealing.


Based around the sloping slack bass and vocal, which gives the compositions their powerful presence, the guitar and percussion provide a context for the resulting outpourings. Without a sub-woofer working hard to caress the ears you will be missing more than you are gaining.

There is a luscious texture to the recordings which are directed towards vinyl recordings as explained in far more detail by Thaddeus Moore in Indie Music Tips # 10 on Mastering. Suffice it to say, the reason that The Sunday Reeds sound so warm is not digital fandangery, rather hollowed out eight track analogue recordings.

The Sunday Reeds is a band to spend much time to get to know and their five track EP Amour Tragique coming out on the 1st of August makes this a date to hard-wire in your diary.

Antesaint

Antesaint is the rock quartet of Hayley Smith (Vocals / Bass), Sam Sharpe (Rhythm Guitar), Thomas Wilkinson (Lead Guitar) and Joe Hunter (Drums / Vocals) from Barnsley in England.

Antesaint

Intricate streams of notes circulate around the room as Antesaint announce their arrival. The forlorn vocal sits as a mourning lament to world that has lost its way as the fragile disambiguation of the sounds fragment in the ears in an emotional commentary.  The quartet is able to portray thoughts on tenuous threads of connectivity which speak volumes of reality.


Finely balancing fractional discourse with a solid backing Antesaint provide delicacy, which enhances the resulting out-put, of what are essentially rock driven compositions. There is a powerful undercurrent of thematic chords and riffs to allow fans of rock to engage, whilst a wispiness of meandering progressions affords the band to explore new horizons that draws in alternate audiences.

This is an interesting line of travel that ploughs new furrows for others to pursue as Antesaint add tenderness and a sense of insecurity locked within confident outpourings of emotionality. Originally formed as a trio the addition of Tom has given the band a renewed impetus.

I give them credit for the manner in which they are able to shed a tear without shame and they deserve support for the intensity of the resulting out-put.
