The German dark-folk creator Prag 83 is scheduling an LP for February 2018 release.
The new album is a follow-up to the dystopian LP Metamorphoses from 2016.
Judging by the first song to appear from the forthcoming album – Roads – which was itself released as a stand alone single this month, it indicates of an LP of equally dark shadows with its ethereal presence casting a chill through the room.
The German art rock project AKWUAR is set to release the eponymous LP on the 8th of January.
A seven track album of melting instrumentation and electronica filtered through a gauze affording the songs an otherworldly texturing, tipped by voices which drift in and out of soft focus. There is an intriguing juxtaposition between the aural delivery of the compositions and the structure of the songs which are typically quite mathematical of construct giving the overall effect of music which minds the listener of Bauhaus architecture.
The opening track on the album is Millions Of Same Faces.
The German melancholic-rock project of Anita Goss – ANIQO is finalising release detail of the début LP.
From the forthcoming album – New Signs – features guest vocals by Annie Hardy showcases the style of the songs, with its gradual build-up and notable spaces between chords which gives the the track an air of dark despondency that cloaks the listener in its sadness.
The German dark-electro duo Yeah But No release their début eponymous LP on the 10th of November.
Yeah But No
One is minded of graphene on hitting play as their music has a sense of immense tensile strength whilst simultaneously being of lithe flexibility.
The sixth of the ten tracks on the album (available on bandcamp) Sand exemplifies these physical properties, which they transpose to sound, as the dreamy vocal stretches across the room within an undulating pulsing bass which rumbles the sub-woofer from its anchoring.
On the 27th the German alt-rock septet Hills Like White Elephants release the LP Ages.
Hills Like White Elephants
Each of the ten songs on the album (available on bandcamp) offers a different perspective of the varied crystal that is generically named ‘rock’ in compositions in which rather than using the multitude of players to add either volume or confusion, they are able to better articulate the complexities of their thought process, leaving the listener pleasurably supping their way through a bottle of Danziger Goldwasser.
