The Koniac Net

A kaleidoscope of colours reflect across the walls as The Koniac Net deliver measured and retrospective mellowing moods of sound. Whilst gently steeped, the compositions are not tepid, as the quintet invest numerous layers within the tracks that engage the audience in the flowing aural delights.

Bass and percussion form a solid spine to the music, around which, the guitars are given the space and time to inveigle the ears with glistening distractions, whilst, the vocal guides the pieces along distinguishable paths. Although very easy on the audience, there is plenty of activity to warrant replays of tracks to explore further the spread of ideas.

The Koniac Net have mastered the art of delivering music which has a gentle timbre, while simultaneously adding sufficient seasoning to serve up an intriguing blend of sounds to keep the listener engaged and wanting to come back for a second helping.

The depth of riches with which Zoo invests their sounds finds the music undulating around the room as though on a thermal current, as the combinations of instruments and electronics provide the audience with thick pile wool carpets in which to wriggle their toes.

Although having been around for a few years, it was only this month that their début seven track release Atoms & Combinations appeared. They have used their developmental period to put out a first release which does them considerable credit.

Zoo build their sounds through waves of coalescing inputs, which gives the music multifarious textures for the listener to consider. Although layered, the out-put is delivered in a way that gives it an immediate accessibility. The band produce sounds which are more jacket and chinos than ripped t-shirts, but they are not asking the audience to sip dainty cocktails, producing tunes which work well at a chilled out sunset party overlooking the beach.

Unohu


Well driven sounds nail themselves into the ears as Unohu deliver songs which would sit well anywhere you can find a rock audience. The trio are able to give themselves room to negotiate the compositions which have a spaciousness to them that fools the ears to thinking there must be more than three players.

The music is both steeped in melody and driving impetus, giving the band a solid platform from which to develop the textures, resulting in the listener receiving well conceived and developed pieces of music which immediately capture attention.

A couple of years behind them Unohu have been honing their craft in live performance and their debut EP a four track – Asunder only appeared in June. Through allowing themselves time to establish their skills, the trio have been able to deliver a fine primary release, which both texturally and in range sets the band in good stead to establish a far broader international audience. The selected songs demonstrate both the ability and spaciousness of Unohu.

Omri Dagan and The Wild Willows

Omri Dagan and The Wild Willows


Omri Dagan and The Wild Willows produce music which has a mournful resonance without stepping to melancholia as the quintet provide a commentary on the ride of life with its disappointments, sadnesses, high points and opportunities. Whilst firmly rooted in the acoustic folk territory, they have been able to add a soupçon of rock ‘n’ roll inflections to deliver a surprisingly rolling flow to the music.

With the flexibility of the range of instruments the quintet is able to invest the compositions with emotional relevance which gives the resulting out-put a captivating presence. These are not songs you are going to pull out for a tub-thumping party night, but certainly worth reaching for on a quiet evening at home with a few friends.

To be found on the local live circuit, Omri Dagan and The Wild Willows have enough about them for this to work well across geographic boundaries.

Yolanda Moon

Yolanda Moon is the triphop duo of Cholo Hermosa and Kyle Quismundo from Manila in The Philippines.

Luxuriant waves of sounds ease their way into the room on listening to Yolanda Moon. This is music of gliding textures which slide gently past each other before melting together like billowing clouds in the sky. The music has a dreamlike sequence that is delicate of touch and delivery.

Over the past couple years of their existence the music of Yolanda Moon has evolved into a softer and more entrancing state and they have now mastered the dynamics of the sequences, which should see them make more significant strides in short order. The vocal which caresses the instrumentation fits perfectly in style giving the out-put an extra dimension of discovery as it gently floats around the head.

Establishing themselves in the local scene, they have a sound which traverses national boundaries. This is music to pull-out any-time you need to slow down the pace and relax the tensions of the day and I look forward to hearing the future development of Yolanda Moon in the future.
