Crookhaven is a folk duo split between France and the USA.

Crookhaven

Their eponymous début LP surfaced towards the end of last month.

Not seeking to tear down any barriers Crookhaven, in the dozen track album (available from their website), infuse the listener with a feeling that there are good things in life as the LP traverses through romantic ballads, square dance inclusiveness, medieval-strumming, mid-west infused country and more, retaining the listeners interest throughout.

The second song is A Million Miles or More.

The track K.I.S.S. has been released as a standalone single in advance of the EP (available on bandcamp) and is a collaboration with the English dreamwave duo From Apes To Angels who have regularly featured over the years.

K.I.S.S. is a hazy wash of softly brushed electronica that floats calmly through the ears whilst the duality of voices hypnotise the audience.

Word also arrives that From Apes To Angels are in the process of recording more music to follow-up the release of their début EP New Skin which featured in June.

Mahadev OK is an alt-rock creator from France and based in England.

There is an infectious inclusiveness in the songs created by Mahadev OK with their uplifting tempo that threads through the music, which draws deeply from the roots of the summer of love.

Predominately acoustic guitar led,  semi-acoustic and full electric do come to the fore from time to time, allowing Mahadev OK to create music with a diversity of sounds, though always able to sprinkle sunlight through the room.

By way of an introduction to a musician I look forward to hearing more of in short order.

PLYMOUTH FURY – Melted – Audio

The French fulminating-rock trio PLYMOUTH FURY released the EP テープ (Tape) on the 13th.

PLYMOUTH FURY

PLYMOUTH FURY

Fuzzy passages press against the inside of the speakers desperate to escape in to the room resulting a soundtrack that minds of a swarm of angry hornets buzzing around and the only thing to do with an angry swarm is to be entranced by the intricacy of the furious bodies and so it is with PLYMOUTH FURY. Prior to approaching the play button ensure everything is a loud as it is able and stand back for the assault.

These are a trio of highly capable musicians, as, whilst they are able to maintain within the four tracks on テープ (available on bandcamp) an intensity of pressure they are equally able to to deliver a mesmerising clarity of construct leaving the audience merely able to gawp in admiration as the inescapable flight of barbs pierce the skin. The penultimate track Melted being my pick of the release.

Problematic Jam - Hide into the Woods

Problematic Jam

From the long-awaited LP Stereonucleose which is out next month, Hide Into The Woods, is of more dour countenance than much of their music previously featured with puddled percussion giving the track a menacing presence as it stomps through the room.
