Originally introduced in June of this year We are Falcon were able to complete the recording of the fifteen track release this autumn.

As originally mentioned in the first review, the quartet offer a complexity of sounds which are best explored by peeling back the layers and in the just under an hour over which Cave extends the audience is afforded plenty of time to discover the nuances of sound.

Of personal interest has been to see the development in the playing of Mike Clarke, as I first was introduced to his music back in January 2010 in the guise of Fez, on to the slightly revised Nolita View and now We Are Falcon.

My pick of the release is Long Haul – track 7 – on Cave.

Highway Now is track three on the release.

Sunken Seas

Sunken Seas have a couple of releases behind them and deliver music of the moment with a sawwing buzz of guitar reverb. Whilst there is a differential between their debut LP Null Hour and the follow-up EP Cataclysm there is a thread to follow as the droning mesmerics of the material wafts around the room in a flux of merging sounds. The music bubbles with societal discontent and is an imagery of change. The oppressive industrialisation sears its way into the head allowing the listener to contemplate the visuals that are created. Turn down the lights, turn up the volume and let yourself drift inside the sound that is Sunken Seas.

Somehow appositely, given the melting pot of fracture and coalescence that is the signature sound of Sunken Seas, from the various notes I have found it appears the band emerged from Tiddabades and have recently undergone another line-up change since their latest release, so it will be interesting to hear how the formulation of the new line-up will sound in future recordings.
