somesurprises – serious dreams – Cassette

With a deft eye on societal discontent somesurpises proffer music which reflects on the reality of the silos of raging isolationism so many seek as safe harbour, in a world that has become ever more disjointed and disconnected, as the theoretical connectivity of pixel friendships and chasing populism through random likes becomes the mantra of normality whilst driving ever more entrenched wedges, with the tracks resonating of personal one to one interaction and all that that befalls.

From the five track EP, available on bandcamp as, one hundred only, limited edition cassette and / or digital download, the opener is the engrossing mayor skipped town.

You Are Number Six – Midnight Blue – Single Review

Within the past couple of hours the French synthwave creator You Are Number Six released a new track.

You Are Number Six - Midnight Blue

You Are Number Six

Always revealing music wrapped in streams of synthesis which mind of an albatross calmly gliding thermal waves whilst traveling thousands of miles on few wing beats – in Midnight Blue, You Are Number Six releases a track full of mystery and tranquility.

It is the combinations of the melancholic electronics and voice of Théo Lefebvre which always make returning to the creations an absolute delight with their conceptual ambience that always warms the room with their countenance.

In advance of the album the first track to surface was also made available as a single (available on bandcamp) earlier this month  – Islands III.

Appropriately given the band  name which translates in to English as ‘Black Cottage’  the just over five minutes of menacing darkness clouds the room in choking smog which feeds its way through the arteries depriving the listener of oxygen and they can sense the build-up of carbon-monoxide starving the brain, there is nothing do other than play Islands III through once again and drift into unconsciousness, other than – there is…

Svarta Stugan have also made a game to play alongside the track which can be discovered on their website or as an android app.

The ten track album (available on bandcamp) is full of surprises as the quintet utilise the variety of strings and bows at their disposal to create songs which have the audience tapping their feet as they explore the rootsy source of their influence.

Of the pieces I have so far been able to hear, my selection is the Latin-folk swaying tempo of the second track – Bright Orange Suit.

Well established in the Scottish rock scene it is long past due date Fat Goth had a far greater international audience and with fortune their fourth album – Enorme! (available on bandcamp) – will go some way to address the anomaly.

The first of the eight tracks – Guestbook – merely requires the listener to be in headbanging mood to fully enjoy the exemplary rock ‘n’ roll.
