She Pleasures Herself

She Pleasures Herself from Lisbon in Portugal is the electro-goth trio of David Francisco (Synths / Guitar), Nuno Francisco (Drums / Programming) and Nuno Varudo (Vocals / Bass).

All experienced musicians She Pleasures Herself came together last year and have been able to reveal a début LP – Fetish which was released earlier in the month.

The dark menacing textures of instrumental and synthetic sounds drift from the speakers like a dark fog with the vocal superbly aligned to the musical context, seemingly surfacing from somewhere high above, with its mesmerising, menacing delivery.

Quickly the listener becomes lost inside a shroud of industrial electronica which unrelentingly cloaks the audience in tighter embrace in well paced and layered shadows, sadly far too soon their one release thus far is over.

I look forward to hearing much more of She Pleasures Herself in short order as immediately out of they starting gate they already have much to the world of music.

By way of an introduction, from the eleven track album (available on bandcamp), Touch.

Formed at the tail end of last year Hazelfier have made seven of the twelve tracks on the album available and my pick of the tracks around, as I write is – Why – which contains a landscape of familiarity, despite supping deeply from its inspiration is able to offer a melancholic construct which strikes its own path.

There is nothing else to do than turn up the speaker system and sing along with Warning! – taken from the album –  whilst dancing along with the scalpel precision and surgical excision of the tumour that is the 1% who quite evidently believe that the 99% exist to serve their foul and foetid existence.

2017 is already – in just the three bands featured – turning in to a wonderful year.

The curling folds of extended loops circle the room akin to immersive and infinite revolutions as acoustic and plugged in instrumentation paint the winding rope core, providing the listener with a roughly eighteen minute four track EP (available on bandcamp) in which to loose their sense of direction and time in the psychedelic effects.

Best heard in totality The Length Of A Line is an almost continual thread of ideas rather than chapters dividing a book, however a section that stands as a highlight – the second track – Tease Me – serves as my pick of the release.

There is a certain inevitability that when I ask you to rest in the arms of tranquillity, I am thinking it may well be coming up to the weekend here in the UK and Ararur with Abril, the first track to surface from the album,  invites the listener to kick back their heels and let the grime wash away.
