The trio recently released their début eponymous three track Single (available on bandcamp). On hitting play it is difficult to believe this is an outfit that has been together for less than a year as Silent Fiasco deliver music textured in multiple layers that fill the room with an almost tangible presence.
I look forward to following the development of Silent Fiasco over the years and if justice be served they will rapidly gain wide audience.
By way of an introduction the opener – Blowing Smoke.
The German dark-acoustic-rock project All These Animals released the EP Follow-Up on the 26th.
All These Animals
With a different emphasis to music previously featured Follow-Up is a four track EP (available on bandcamp) comprised of shorter pieces with a less oppressive soundtrack, though of more sad countenance, with the whole release lasting around nine minutes. The closer being Grammatical False Friend.
The Danish death-metal quartet The Petulant release the LP Dictum next month.
Grinding across the room like a bad tempered bear My Ceasar, the first reveal from the forthcoming album, has a dark foreboding presence that casts long shadows over the listener. The Petulant don’t hurry the composition leaving the growling guitar and vocal combinations room to slowly unfurl the doom-laden countenance.
The US slowave quartet from the US – A Thousand Hours – released the LP Sleep on the 22nd.
A Thousand Hours
Luscious textures of soft texturing like drifting billowing clouds which hold the listener entranced by slowly, yet ever changing, shapes that expand to fill the room .
The nine track album (available on bandcamp) which runs for approximately thirty six minutes envelopes the audience in mesmeric flows of electronica through which a disembodied vocal gives the sense of a spectral presence.
By way of an introduction the penultimate song – Its Rumoured.
