‘Les Paul’s’ (The Paul’s) – A Thousand Eyes – Audio

The England originating Israel / Switzerland based alt-rock duo ‘Les Paul’s’ (The Paul’s) released the LP A Mile Until Dawn on the 18th.

The dozen track just under seventy minute album takes the listener on an aural landscape of intrigue and discovery.

As regular readers know I am a punk rock vocalist from the ’70s and to me a song that lasts more than three minutes seems like an idea I couldn’t sustain, yet, within A Mile Until Dawn lay two tracks heading towards seven minutes long, with eight of them longer than five minutes  – and the duo are able to have me thinking – ‘well they could have run for longer without me gritting my teeth’ as ‘Les Paul’s’ (The Paul’s) invest in each piece many ideas, yet none of them extravagant or extraneous and there is nothing that could have shaved from any of the compositions that would have done other than to detract from their value.

My selection from the album is the third – A Thousand Eyes.

Their confrontational style towards both religious fundamentalism, particularly with songs mocking ISIS and much of the political structure in the Middle East – along with female members in the band has found them regularly receiving death-threats since their inception in 2013, though despite that, they retain both a presence along with a significant local following and their début album marks a significant chapter in their career.

From the nine track LP – قمت طلعت مع (Marched With The People).

MITYA – Omen Over Sky – Audio

The Russian indie-dance project of Mitya Burmistrov –  MITYA released the EP Monument on the 12th.

MITYA

MITYA

Treading lightly – as though navigating bare-feet through broken glass –  MITYA doesn’t attempt to be what it isn’t. The easy stepping sounds are flighty on the ears, though intriguingly derived.

Having spent some time travelling through various Turkic regions across the Russian Federation on returning to Kazan the collection of traditions and music laid upon the mind and from this travelogue – Monument (available on bandcamp) is a reinterpretation of those memories – set to distinctly 2010s’ techniques and synthetics.

Omen Over The Sky is the first of the five tracks.
