Gioumourtzina - Fayum

Gioumourtzina

Fayum (available on bandcamp) finds Gioumourtzina with a more regular template from which they work than previous music of featured, whilst equally turning up the wick.

The combinations of bass and electronics come tumbling out of the speakers like ants scurrying back and forth with an unrelenting flow of activity and similarly akin to an army of ants, rather than the seemingly frenetic bustling, as the various textures come in to earshot, so the elements takes on a purposeful and organised shape, much like as can be seen when taking a birds eye overview of a colony on the march.

Illegal Operation – Down – Audio

The Greek delta blues quintet Illegal Operation release the LP Down on the 5th of May.

Illegal Operation - Down - CD and Vinyl

Illegal Operation – Down – CD and Vinyl

The sludgy rock oozes out of the speakers like gloopy mud and the listener gets the sense that the bass strings are so loose that they are probably also being sent through the speakers and the audience is left to revel in the squelching darkness in which they are coated.

The first track to surface from the six track album (available on bandcamp) the title and opener – Down – is a piece of music that seems to find moss on the underside of moss as the unhurried yet meticulous combinations of guitar, keys and percussion revolve inside each other, whilst bass and a superlative vocal cloud the ears.

Prins Obi – Anatolian Rock – Audio

The Greek alt-rock project of Prins Obi released the LP The Age Of Tourlou yesterday.

Prins Obi - Anatolian Rock

Prins Obi

A fourteen track album (available on bandcamp) that casts an acerbic eye on the world around.

The opening song is Anatolian Rock. For those of geographical and geo-political interest which, if you are a regular reader, will be well aware – I am a keen follower. Anatolia is a region of disparate melting pots of different thoughts and by title alone a decent reflective of the sentiments of The Age Of Tourlou. As an aside I did at one point in time have an Anatolian Shepherd Dog named Galen as company as I travelled in Western Asia during the latter end of the last Century – but enough of all that – the song and why you should get to know the LP.

Emerging Indie Bands on Twitter is where you will discover more music of political stance along with occasional snippets of my travels.

A Victim Of Society – The Quick And The Dead – Audio

The opening track of the eight on the album (available on bandcamp) , The Quick And The Dead,  serves as a decent introduction to a trio who combine spiraling drifts of psychedelic scent to a garage-rock soundtrack, giving the music a feeling of intimacy with the listener.
