The Danish rocker Mike Tramp will be releasing the LP Maybe Tomorrow on the 24th of February.

It has been more than two and a half years since Mike Tramp last featured, yet unsurprisingly there is a noticeable thread of connection which is borne from the distinctive roots in American-rock. A style of music which requires no change in construct to deliver a classic sound and why it has, as a genre, stood the test of time.
Maybe Tomorrow is available for pre-order as Vinyl or CD from Target and from the release – Coming Home.
The Danish synth-wave quintet Lowly are set to release the LP Heba on the 10th of February.

Within the past four hours the middle of the eleven tracks Prepare The Lake has been revealed, a composition with greater texture and depth than when last featured just over a year ago and a decided development in their progression.
The Danish heavy-metal outfit Electric Guitars release the LP Rock’n’Roll Radio on the 10th of February.
The third of the ten tracks is Headless Chicken which does precisely as you would expect from heavy-metal – a blistering fusillade of bass, guitar, percussion and vocal hurtle from the speakers – grabbing hold of the listener by the shoulders whilst yanking the head into a bobbing metronome of head-banging.
The Denmark based drifting-rock quintet Wild Forest released the single Riddle a few hours ago.

Those of longer stay may well recognise Ned Gale who is a member of the quintet, along with his sister Marie Antonie who plays drums, combined with Rasmus Møller, Frederik Hvenegaard and Lasse Solevad in Wild Forest – the sounds take on a wispier and more expansive sentiment.
The just over six minute composition (available on bandcamp) drifts around the room in layers of synths and instrumentation which offer the listener a soft pillow on which to lay their head and unwind, allowing their minds to flow in to thoughts of fantastical imagination, as the unhurried piece rests upon the ears.
With a trio of singles behind them, my hope is that in short order Wild Forest will package a collection of songs together in an LP as the output is best enjoyed in extended play.
The first track to surface – Your Mind’s Like The Earth – makes no pretence of its derivations and whilst the listener is easily transposed to the Madchester scene – in the just over three minutes of the track the audience discerns a freshness and vitality behind the listless vocal and glazed staring eyes.
Word arrives of the début EP being set for April and this, by the sound of the one piece around, will be something to put on the playlist for weekend party benders.
