Lëura


Melancholic sounds emanate from the speakers as Lëura describes a world which hasn’t delivered soft hammer blows and
this searching for answers is reflected in the emotional directness of the music. Whilst you certainly wouldn’t be taking this off the shelves for a birthday bash, neither is it music which has you reaching for a noose.

The fragile compositions feels as though they will shatter into shards of glass at any moment as the poignant material winds its way on the mind of the listener. Balancing the contexts of the songs so as not to fall into self-pity is a skilful art and one which Lëura capably negotiates enabling the audience to connect rather than feel as an awkward bystander. The haunting beauty of the tracks leaves the music playing in the head long after the sounds have faded to silence.

To be found playing live with a full-band there is also a début eight track LP Creature of Sight set for release later this year.

Fait

Fait from Perth in Australia is the dreamscape songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Elise Higgins.

Fait

The reverb echoes off the walls as Fait deliver rich, resonating layers of sound which gently waft into the ears. The luxurious textures are pitched across the spectrum with dreamy shoegaze guitar underpinned by deeply pillared bass giving the music an ethereal spaciousness, which allows the compositions to spread their wings once inside the head. An almost imperceptible percussion adds a tempo and direction to the pieces, whilst not interrupting the flow of the music. There is lightness of touch to the tracks which ensures the music avoids becoming self-absorbed and the listener is left feeling part of the unfolding munificence.

A new live performance line-up of Elise (Guitar / Piano / Synth), Michael Antonas (Guitar), Rob Stephens (Bass) and Darrell Sundai (Drums) has enabled Fait to step out of the one player studio recordings to bring the music to the stage and an East Coast Australia tour is scheduled for August.

A début EP, which was recorded in England, the five track Atmosphere was released in May. I look forward to hearing more of this engrossing instrumental rock.

A Breach Of Silence - Metal from Australia

A Breach Of Silence

Tearing the speakers asunder A Breach Of Silence hurtle into the room like marauding Visigoths. It is easy to cause disturbance and scream loudly, as Chris from Eclipse Records will attest to my vitriolic response to  a casual email – what marks these guys out, is their ability to hold the sound together with some smartly composed chord progressions charging around the head.

A Breach Of Silence are able to deliver impressive tempos to their songs which steep the listener in sweat and graft, whilst maintaining a balance of rapidity and listenability as the guitars add mellowed nuances to the out-put as bass and percussion hurl pole-axing blows of power. Of additional note is the vocals which can with consummate switch between bassy growl and gruff to sublimely melodic pitch perfect singing. A change of line-up to include a fifth player has enabled the band to add considerably to the quality of the music as they are now able to explore the themes of the songs in a more meaningful way.

It is these intelligent combinations that make A Breach Of Silence a band well worth getting to know. Already well supported in their native Australia it will be interesting to see if they can broach the shores of countries abroad.

The Sunday Reeds

The Sunday Reeds a blues rock band from Melbourne in Australia is Romana Ashton (Vocals / Bass), Drew Jones (Guitar) and Jeremy Russell (Drums).

The Sunday Reeds - Blues Rock from Australia

The Sunday Reeds

Be prepared to pull out a Takamura Nakiri as the The Sunday Reeds expound valedictory eulogies in a darkened and dank bedsit with music that forms ever tightening loops around the head. There is a definable beauty to gloom and this a band that is able to make the crimson emblazoned slashes of music seem so intoxicating and appealing.


Based around the sloping slack bass and vocal, which gives the compositions their powerful presence, the guitar and percussion provide a context for the resulting outpourings. Without a sub-woofer working hard to caress the ears you will be missing more than you are gaining.

There is a luscious texture to the recordings which are directed towards vinyl recordings as explained in far more detail by Thaddeus Moore in Indie Music Tips # 10 on Mastering. Suffice it to say, the reason that The Sunday Reeds sound so warm is not digital fandangery, rather hollowed out eight track analogue recordings.

The Sunday Reeds is a band to spend much time to get to know and their five track EP Amour Tragique coming out on the 1st of August makes this a date to hard-wire in your diary.

Buzz Kull

Buzz Kull from Sydney in Australia is the alt-synth duo of Rebecca Liston and Marcel Whyler.

Buzz Kull

The music sweeps the room in oscillating refractions as Buzz Kull entwine vocal and sound generators into a seamless whump which rebounds around the room akin to a squash court ball in play.


The duo create an epiblast of ephemeral notes which are allowed to effervesce before disappearing as succinctly as they appeared whilst above reigns a vocal that wraps itself in the mind. Buzz Kull evidently work hard on the creation of their multitudinous layers of sound which means that new recordings are sparse, equally their live appearances are in bursts of activity before they head back to hone their thoughts into a new aural cornucopia of sound. Their attention to the minutest detail makes the wait more than worth the while as the resulting out-put is something you just want to keep on playing in a continual loop.

The only consternate being will they return to fill the ears with more, after two years of creativity you just have to remain optimistic and look forward to what ever comes next from Buzz Kull.
