The Vinyl Records – an alt-rock band from India – are due to release an as yet unnamed LP next month.
The Vinyl Records – Turbulence
The Vinyl Records have featured on the site frequently since 2013 always producing a fiery new-wave burst of sound. In the track Turbulence from the forthcoming album, there is a more mellowed flow to the material and it will be interesting to discover if this marks a new direction of travel.
The Indian dystopian-edm project of Kartik Pillai – Jamblu – released the two track single Hypocrite on the 2nd.

With tracks being named simply Hypocrite pt 1 and pt 2 – my pick of the release (available on bandcamp) is the haunting Hypocrite pt 2, which also features Hashback Hashish – longer stay readers will recall his name.
The Indian indie band Yesterdrive revealed their latest track – Control on the 26th.
It has been over a year since they made available new material and a delight that Yesterdrive have surfaced with new music for those of us who don’t have the opportunity to see them live.
Control contains all the essential elements of their sound with instrumentation and synths blending in to each other, which in this instance they have mixed to produce a distinctly Scandi-indie dance driven number.
The introspective-rock project of Krishnendu Ghosal – Socially Altered from India releases his début three track single Resurgence on the 11th.
In Socially Altered the listener discovers music that is simultaneously bleak, whilst being cathartic.
The deep string bending bass opening the second track of the three on Resurgence – Cancer For The Soul – embraces the mind from which it will not let its grip relax for the five and a quarter minutes of its journey. The scattered percussion gives an air of the unexpected and guitar weaves its way through tempo and structure while the almost chanting vocal spirals round the brain.
Socially Altered provides material in which the listener is luxuriantly able to slough the dead-weight of the darkest emotions in the mesmeric compositions.
