The sixth of the nine tracks – Clouded Minds – demonstrates their influences steeped in ’70s heavy-metal to which they add flourishes of Scandi-rock, resulting in an almost five minutes song full of melody and aural metaphysics.

Black Dough – Changes – Single Review

Black Dough is a dreamwave band from Sweden.

Having fused as individuals on the jazz scene the quartet go together to combine, as a side project, to generate ideas of more experimental and leisured pace in the form of Black Dough.

The latest song to surface – Changes has a nebulous and amorphous drift that captivates the attention for the very fact of its intangibility, in which the listener is invited to let their mind roam freely, unfettered by daily mundanities, despite the lyric being of decidedly societal critique.

The fragile architecture sweeps within itself through the six and a tenth minutes track in every changing ebb and flow, whilst the voice peers from overhead as though a condemnatory guillotine.

Kaskelott – Chameleon – Audio

The Swedish indie-dance quartet Kaskelott released the EP Cocoon on the 31st of March.

Working in a style of music rarely featured, the fact that this is Kaskelott‘s third feature on the site indicates that they have more to offer than is typical in a crowded market place. The four track EP threads its way through a wide soundscape as the quartet once again demonstrate their abilities to write songs containing deep texturing and deftly handled mood changes.

My selection from Cocoon is the closer Chameleon, which is a luxurious wash of synthesiser counterbalancing the tightly packed bass and drum from which a hazy guitar delivers wafts of smoky flavour as the vocals keep all the elements in order.

Cocoon – EP – Kaskelott is available on iTunes.*

Luna Green – Lotus Interception – Single Review

It has been the best part of three years since the Swedish empyreal-dream creator Luna Green last surfaced with new studio music.

One is minded of watching the aurora-borealis as the absorbing soundscape slowly plays its display through the ears, as the newest single Lotus Interception drifts in to aural range.

There exists a constant of focus in the pulsing bass whilst fracturing flashes of colour switch through the room and as the mind focuses on one trajectory, so another sparks in another direction. It isn’t until the ears are able to refocus on the broader context of pivoting sounds and take in the full range that the full mythological beauty of the spectrum comes in to its full munificence.
