Ayawaska – The Ride – Video

The English merseybeat trio Ayawaska released their début single The Ride yesterday.

You can almost hear the valves starting to glow as the warming analogue sounds of The Ride floats in to the room.

The hazy veil that the material sits behind gives the track a psychedelic tinge in which the listener can delightedly indulge as the trio offer a just over three and a half minutes of breezy music that raises a smile and a sense of well-being.

Drawing influences from the ’60s and ’70s The Ride doesn’t sound like a pale version of what has become before, rather, a welcome signpost of what is in store and Ayawaska are most assuredly a band I look forward to hearing more of in due course.

Phil Lomac – World Of Pain – Audio

The US alt-folk creator Phil Lomac will be releasing the LP Northern Cities Southern Stars on the 24th of March.

Phil Lomac

A mellowing roughly twenty six minutes, seven track, album (available on bandcamp) in which the listener can lay back and relax in the distinctively Southern-blues infused material that is globally accessible, perhaps due to Phil being based in Chicago, while his childhood was predominately based in Germany and thus transposing various ideas from very different climes.

However it occurs, rather than tight border controls and insularity as espoused by the President of the USA, there is an inclusiveness to the music which extends a welcoming arm to everyone. Once again evidencing music is far more than a geo-political passport control – if only the world of bureaucracy was thus minded, it would be a far better place for everyone.

From the forthcoming LP World Of Pain is the second number.
