The English alt-rock band The Poulsons appeared with the LP Rompa Stompa earlier in the month.

The Poulsons is band who over the just over three years since first featuring are consistently inconsistent with new material yet are always immediately recognisable by their soundtrack resonating of their surroundings with a furious temper searing across the room reflective of the realities of day to day life, always bruised sound levels giving the music a forestalled shadow that befalls the ears and their signature ending to each and every track which abruptly and seemingly randomly cuts midway through a bar.
From the nine track album – my selection is Flow.

Fenne Lily is an English fragile-acoustics creator.
Although with only a few songs around it is little surprise Fenne Lily is establishing a rapidly burgeoning audience.
A haunting vocal is matched by equally spectral instrumentation with the listener pondering how it was that the gossamer threading compositions managed to not break on the way out of the speakers. It is the finely woven intricacy of lacework that affords Fenne Lily the commanding presence which transfixes the audience as they come across the music.
The most recent track to surface – What’s Good – has a poise that captivates the mind due entirely to the delicate filaments of architecture.

The English alt-rock quartet Beach Royals featured in the New Year Ninety.
Earlier in the month they released the EP Trap Door Music, which is available on bandcamp. Although two of the four songs have already featured; in the other two they are also able to add more colours to the palette as they have used this release opportunity to offer a range of their musical ideas.
In the second track on the EP, Fairweather, Beach Royals allow each element of the band to partake to fullest extend and thereby delivering a song which has a unity and cohesion that was missing in earlier takes and raises them to an outfit to whom instead of looking forward to hearing with a sense of intrigue to an outfit I look forward to with a keen sense of anticipation.

Seaker is a haunting folk creator from England.
Less than twelve hours ago the latest track – The Waters – bubbled to the surface. An approaching four and a third minutes song that builds intensity and volume through its duration, prior to curling in to silence.
The listener is minded of Macbeth, Act IV, Scene I. by William Shakespeare and the older source Scottish mythology of the Wayward Sisters as the stewing brew of The Waters hoves through the speakers in a cauldron of intoxicating thread of transfixing vocal, thrubbing bass, cloaked percussion and bleeding bows in which the listener becomes bewitched, to a state of enlightened topographagnosia.

The closing track of the five on the EP – She Knows -, which was released on the 17th, Ghosts is a spellbinding just over four minute composition that drifts around the room in gracious layers which wrap the listener in immersive instrumentation whilst the mesmeric vocal enthrals.
She Knows – EP is available on Amazon.*
