The slightly retrospective sounds of psychedelia melt inside lofi production as the vocal which seeps through voile drifts through the room resulting in an achingly attractive sound that captures the listeners attention with its fragile wisps of lace.
With a plenitude of thoughts to convert to acoustics H1987 regularly puts out single tracks and complete collections. The most recent of which, at least at the time I write this article on the 21st, being the track CODY that surfaced on the 20th.
Alongside all the other works this only makes sense with a multilayered full speaker system else lost completely to the audience. Akin to a bat skimming around by echolocation it is the radar of closing displacement that affords the music its impressive stance as the seeming collision course of refracted soundwaves glides unerringly between one another like graphite sheering effortlessly from a 9B pencil.
The French agit-folk project Somehow recently released the LP Hidden Memories.
A just under forty minutes, nine track, album (available on bandcamp) that wreaths the room in saddened reflective with compositions chivving the listener to take a look at the wider world and try to make it better rather than bemoan their own insular existence.
The melancholic lead vocal that holds the attention minds of Ian Curtis and Peter Murphy, whilst a distinctly Gallic soundtrack lays in supporting role.
Hidden Memories is most certainly an LP to add to the collection and by way of an introduction, the middle track, While The Days Go By.
Nabucco Dinosaur is an Italy / France based alt-rock duo.
Regularly working with other musicians from around the world, Hesitate (available on bandcamp) which was released on the 2nd, adds two players and a US dimension to the track.
Akin to the global nature of Hesitate there are a melting pot of influences that drift through the room as psychedelia, americana, southern country and british-blues take to the floor. Though far from sounding like an idea sewn together from unmatched patches there is a cohesive flow to the composition in which the listener can take pleasure as the unhurried trippy soundtrack weaves its way through the ears.
The Switzerland / France based luxury-rap creator Danitsa will be releasing the LP EGO towards the end of the year.

More regularly delivering music with a more ragga temper -in Remember Me, from the forthcoming LP (available as a stand alone single on bandcamp), Danista showcases both a superbly acerbic scorning glance at the more typical nature of urban hip-hop, through which the listener takes delight, whilst simultaneously demonstrating innate song writing skills which combines cynicism and luscious template.
