Band of the Month – April 2017 – Readers’ Choice

It is difficult to believe we are already a third of the way through the year – but I know that to be the case as it is time for the Reader’s Choice for Bands of the Month for April.

Based in USA with a soundtrack of world-dance – there is something appropriate about Mosquito Cabaret being the selection in this current time of geo-political turmoil – at least music can unify.

Lament of the Lonely Bloodsucker is available on bandcamp.

Dirty Sound Magnet – Homo Economicus – Video

The Swiss psychedelic-rock band Dirty Sound Magnet release the LP Western Lies on the 12th of May.

Rather than taking the listener on a gentle glass-eyed ride, Dirty Sound Magnet are a band who are politically charged – and that of course is one reason why I enjoy their output, along with the quality of the work – as they cast wary eye on the world around and the listener feels they are on some sort of a nightmare of a trip as the dystopian template spins around the head.

From the twelve track album – Homo Economicus – which is the fourth.

Western Lies – Dirty Sound Magnet is available on iTunes.*

arms&legs – aliens inthe outfield – Audio

The US downtempo project arms&legs is currently working on an LP.

A new track to be revealed – aliens inthe outfield – (released as a stand-alone single on the 26th on bandcamp) discovers arms&legs in a quite different mood to pieces previously featured.

Bowed strings make a first time appearance giving the track a more tempered layering, whilst, as the violin stretches through the room, the fragmented accompanying instrumentation, electronics and vocal allow the violin to generate a perceptible chill to the room.

Savants – Sneak E. Gardner – Video

The US psychedelic-garage quartet Savants recently released a two track split single with Tomorrows Tulips.

Savants have the ability to create music that from the first note pricks up the ears, then drawing the listener in to their magical carpet ride of trippy pleasure. Sneak E. Gardner (available on Narnack Records) once again attests to that knack of theirs.

Band Of The Month – April 2017 – Editors’ Choice

After an emergency server migration of the site on Thursday that took 36 hours to complete – it is good to be back with the Editors’ Choice for Band Of The Month for April.

Perhaps it is because I have spent a few days coping with unavoidable hardware tech issues – that electro-chanson made some sense for the selection – from France – SLOGAN.
