She Killed In Ecstasy – Raw – Single Review

Inside the past twenty four hours the US electronics-angst project She Killed In Ecstasy revealed a new song.

She Killed In Ecstasy - Raw

She Killed In Ecstasy

Raw is, as it formulates on the tin, a disembowelling fulmination of a world which derides suffering and applauds the suicide jumper falling from a roof top whilst frantically pressing the ‘livestream button’ in a vainglorious attempt to seek approval for being so ‘cool and callous’, in an acid derision of all that is wrong with a populace who takes enjoyment, as The Romans did, with their Gladiator fights in amphitheaters – as the allegory of Nero fiddling fingers whilst Rome burnt which currently evokes the mindset of far too many, until such time as the crashing realisation that egotistical vanity is mere self-imploding egregiousness.

Earlier on this month Brenda Xu released the LP Overflow, which is available on bandcamp.

An ethereal, roughly twenty eight minutes, seven track album, that holds the listener in rapt attention from opening to close as the hushed sounds drift effortlessly through the room filling it with layers that the listener, unwittingly, reaches out to touch to gain greater sense of the emotional texturing.

My selection is the ante-penultimate –  Real Sick Man.

With only four tracks around in the form of the EP Should I Try Pot?, which came out earlier in the month and is available on bandcamp, Virgo Virgo deliver music that has an engaging unsophisticated honesty that meanders across various musings of day to day life

The compositions work precisely because of their unhampered and unsophisticated settings in which the listener feels they are an integral part of the experience.

By way of an introduction – the first track on Should I Try Pot?Exceptions.

The Poulsons is band who over the just over three years since first featuring are consistently inconsistent with new material yet are always immediately recognisable by their soundtrack resonating of their surroundings with a furious temper searing across the room reflective of the realities of day to day life, always bruised sound levels giving the music a forestalled shadow that befalls the ears and their signature ending to each and every track which abruptly and seemingly randomly cuts midway through a bar.

From the nine track album – my selection is Flow.

Bad Sea – Over My Head – Audio

Bad Sea is an Irish alt-folk duo.

Bad Sea

Less than a handful of tracks are around, each with slightly different structure, what holds the ideas together is the absorbing vocal which spirals around the room in far reaching range of octaves that cement the listener on the spot. Bad Seas are not aiming to create music of complexity rather provide sympathetic backstage lighting to spotlight the absorbing voice.

The most recent track to surface being – Over My Head.
