There is a snaking beat which slithers out of the speakers and in to the room, which like a Cobra sizing up prey, sways from side to side before suddenly disappearing through the carpet to reappear in a different corner with unblinking staring eyes – yet rather than becoming concerned the listener finds themselves flexing the neck, shoulders, hips and knees and swaying in similar hypnotic action with equally fixed gaze.

The combinations of electronica, instrumentation and vocal, which is the staple of HERR ALT, has a counter-intuitive organic flow in to which the audience fuses their own central nervous system.

Monologue – Single – HERR ALT is available on iTunes.*

Hurling through the speakers, minding of an overhead drone filming commuters and relaying it double speed,  the listener is delighted by the compression and expansion of gnarly composition, which to best enjoy does require moving any furnishing out of the way and turning volumes to more than they are accustomed.

A grunge influence seeps through the Going Out enabling Tusky to deliver a song which has the texturing of launching furious headbutts in to a sponge as the powerful roaring raucous rock is balanced by extended reverberating layering and thereby softening the spikiness of the knuckleduster encased fists which are the foundations of the song.

Whilst Oceans is predominately a lightly textured composition Jason Waterfalls are able to fray the hemlines with inflections of scrawling rock allowing the song to hold the interest, of those of us who like their music to be a more scuffed DMs than polished slip-ons, alongside those after a more user-friendly experience.

HERR ALT – Rush – Audio

HERR ALT

Combining electronic loops, guitar and bleeding vocal allows HER ALT to deliver music which is simultaneously nu-disco whilst equally retrospective of ’80s synth-rock.

More typically to be found in stage performance where the visual and electronic loops modulated by stage played guitar allow the material a more extemporised and organic feel, Rush, nonetheless, (available on bandcamp) makes a welcome introduction for those of us not able to get to see live performance.

From the forthcoming album – Last Goodbye.

Whilst light on the ears, the warmth of analogue synths gives the song a depth of texture which they layer with expressive guitar and rippling percussion, retaining the attention.
