The first track to surface from the Progress:Decline EP is the just over four minutes of pressure that is Suffocating. Appropriately named – the composition envelopes the room in a dark layer of foreboding.
Twin Heart deliver a piece of music which is highlighted by the dramatic shifts in tempo and the slowest section of Suffocating features a low-note twang I could quite happily live with for many a long hour.
It was just over three years ago that the US rock ‘n’ roll outfit EdTang & The Chops first featured.
EdTang & The Chops – Magic Tricks And Rolling Stone – artwork
In September of last year they decided to fold and head off in different musical directions, but did at the time of their last show express a desire to put together one final LP to say farewell and on the 4th of July with the physical release of album and the 18th of July digitally – Magic Tricks And Rolling Stone they will close this chapter on their lives.
From the ten track LP – the closer – The Chops.
EdTang & The Chops will be missed, but on a positive note there are new bands and solo acts arising by various band members from the closing of this book.
Originally introduced in 2012, the Irish alt-rock duo The Parlez release music from time to time.
The latest track to appear – Antimony finds The Parlez in yet another different mindset with a composition that is keys and synth lead prior to evolving into a fuzzy blur. Antimony is delivered at a leisurely pace whilst filled with disparate sounds, resulting in four and a bit minutes of a 2016 version of ’70s deep-psychedelia.
