A band who first featured well over seven years ago still retain their mysterious soundtrack and despite having one fewer players seem to have become ever darker over the years as their output coats the listener in its spectral translucence.
From the forthcoming album, the first of the eight tracks, Alone With The Stars is best engaged in a shrouding crematorium early morning fog as the ghostly four and a half minutes of mesmerising soundscape spins its gossamer threads around the audience.
Enamel Animal is a psychedelic quartet from England.
Before hitting play, clear out your diary for the next twenty four hours as you will still be tripping long after you have turned off the music.
Hallucinogenic waves of sound wrap themselves around the listener which are themselves encased within a grungy droning top-coat affording the compositions their longevity of blurriness by the listener.
Earlier in the month Enamel Animal revealed their début LP Unfaith, which is available on bandcamp. Although the eleven track album lasts only just over fifty one minutes and lyrically is a reflective of a society imploding upon itself such is the weave of Gordian knot in which the mind folds itself – the brain remains pleasurably befuddled long thereafter.
The US stoner band Bootsnake And The Girl release their eponymous LP on the 7th of March.

Having had the opportunity to wander through the roughly twenty six minutes, seven track album, my advice is merely cancel anything else you had planned for the day as the grimy, frayed denim tempts the listener to join in with the party.
The first track to surface from the album – the opener Love It, Hate It only demands your own personalised air guitar to enjoy it to fullest extent.
With players from Italy, England and France – Sonset is a gothic-rock trio.
Apologies to everyone for the delay in featuring CMBR, which has been having around in my in-box for many a day now.
Music by its very nature is not geo-politically bound and somewhat perspicaciously as I type today the 21st – bureaucrats in the UK are debating whether EU citizens already in the UK should be able to stay once the UK leaves the EU or whether people should merely be bargaining chips in negotiations, whilst Sonset provide a ready answer for all to comprehend – without a mix of nationalities there is only febrile isolationism.
There is only one song around by an outfit I look forward to hearing much more from in short-order as the blends of pulsating five string bass and percussion are swept with spiralling synths from which haunting vocal surfaces from the rafters.
