As regular readers will know I am often late to emails of introduction,  though they always receive a response, sometimes judiciously my timing on those older emails is on the button – this is one of those occasions. Back in September 2015 I received an email of introduction I caught up with on the 3rd – equally noting in my response that although I had enjoyed what I had heard, there had been no music since then – only to receive notification today (as I type) after an almost three year break from the Studio – Mountain Lakes are back with a brand new single and more planned for the year resultingly…

The Quiet Sun peering over the horizon to herald a new dawning for Mountain Lakes.

The combinations of electronica and guitar pulse through the room in gentle undulations in to which the listener finds their body rhythms syncopating while a silken vocal weaves a web around the ears with audience and band merging in to one another to form a conjoined organic being.

My apologies that this is a little late as it has been hanging around in my email inbox for a little while.

Earlier this month PADAM released the ten track LP – Live at Na Siano Sunrise 2017 – which as it says on the tin is a live album (available on bandcamp).

Tracks burst through the ears like a wrecking ball in a demolition site as electronica, bass, drum and vocal collide in sparking crashes of industrial waste.

The closing song  Naprawdę Padam – was captured on video too.

Sloth – Treat Summer Like Wine – Audio

Sloth is a garage-surf quartet from Poland.

Much like a pick’n’mix selection of sweets Sloth draw their influences widely which are dropped in to a blender with the output containing retro-sounds which appear vaguely familiar, though are in reality a bespoke concoction of psychedelic-delights that leave the listener grinning, inanely, from ear to ear.

They recently released the LP 2-D (available on bandcamp) – an approximately thirty seven minutes, eight track, reveal which is best approached when there is no need to be in charge of machinery for the ensuing twenty-four hours.

By way of an introduction to a band I look forward to hearing more from in due course – Treat Summer Like Wine.

Their latest single, Wiracje, was released on the 18th. Call The Sun are able to invest in their output a shadowy presence, which raises the bar from, what is at its core, indie-dance to compositions of multi-layering giving their music, with its combinations of electronics and instrumentation, a sound in which the listener can find plenty to investigate and discover emotional pull as the lyric contemplates of memories of special moments, be they good or bad, that add the richness of life’s tapestry.

Wiracje – Single – Call The Sun is available on iTunes.*

Projekt Poezja Kulturystyczna – Hanka i Hantle – Audio

The Polish alternative project Projekt Poezja Kulturystyczna is working towards an LP for release in October.

Projekt Poezja Kulturystyczna

Projekt Poezja Kulturystyczna

Created through a collaboration of the Polish bodybuilder Janusza who also writes poetry and musicians who turned towards the idea of a show of brutish muscle allowing a softer side to be exposed Projekt Poezja Kulturystyczna came to fruition and the album will be filled with different styles of music adapting the collections of Janusza who is heavily influenced by Friedrich Nietzsche to create a third dimension of musical interpretation.

The first track to surface Hanka i Hantle (also available in three mixes on bandcamp) finds the carpenter turned hip-hop creator Raper Joozef reinterpreting prose.

The music is much easier to gather in its dark fulminating construct than process of collaboration.
