With the bitter-sweet scent of curdled milk dividing between curds and whey turning to cottage cheese in Glasgow Kiss – Estrons deliver a feisty track that bursts through the speakers in clumping slugs of coagulate that gives the song a stop start impression in which the listener becomes immersed as the punching pulses surge in and out of the ears.
It is always a pleasure to return to the quartet who are always best heard with plenty of space in which to thrash as the music flies through the room in moody temper.
The German indie quintet CNGRTS release the EP A Fall from Grace on the 1st of September.
Counterintuitively given the song title Sedative, the first track to surface from the forthcoming release, is a more zingy soundtrack than music of theirs previously featured with sparkling guitar laid against sprightly tempo although the vocal maintains their signature drifting melancholia.
This is not music to approach when pressed for time as typically individual pieces last in excess of quarter of an hour and the live performance of Nuits Dark Ritual VII is no exception with a run time of just over twenty two minutes.
The eerie chanting vocal is surrounded by clicking percussion on bones, stones and leather and a low humming electronica which fills the room in an ever more oppressive brooding presence with the second half of the track wrapped in an industrial reference and an overpowering feeling of panic prior to the composition decaying in to a distorted self-destruction.
The Irish angst-rock duo President of What? released the single Sad Awkward Little Virgin Boy on the 7th.
President of What?
With a more emo centred sound than music of theirs previously featured in Sad Awkward Little Virgin Boy (available on bandcamp) the track is self-reflective look-back at personal anxieties for a young teenager.
