45 – Tomorrow – Audio

The English alt-rock trio 45 release the EP The Tick Tock Man tomorrow.

45 - Tomorrow

45

The four track EP (available on bandcamp) is a more nuanced set of songs than music of theirs previously featured.

The lead acoustic on the closing track – Tomorrow – introduces a song that layers rock’n’roll inside a southern-blues framework to which the vocal is ideally suited, which finds the listener stomping alongside and is my pick of the release.

Good Times, a riff laden number, is the first track to surface from a forthcoming LP.

Blue Nation are able to balance heavy rumbles and shimmering highs delivering music in which the listener finds plenty to engage as the trio create, in Good Times, a song which although lasting only three and a quarter minutes is richly textured with varieties of emphasis keeping the audience fully absorbed in the unhurried eloquence.

Hushed tones of muffled acoustic guitar and vocal peers through the room as if skating on a frozen pond deep in a snowy forest with the audience drawn by the distant sounds as they thread through the leaves and trunks to catch the shadowy fleeting figure in the distance.

The penultimate of the four tracks on the EP (available on bandcamp) is Heads Down.

The Hemingways – More Than This – Single Review

The English alt-rock quintet The Hemingways released the single More Than This a few hours ago.

The Hemingways

The Hemingways

Couched in ’70s brit-blues More Than This takes the listener on a journey of dirty chords in which to sink like pulling on a favoured pair of jeans which have moulded themselves in to the right shape.

The raw throat and immensely confident vocal is surrounded by roughly hewn chunks of sawdust guitar which delights as the stomping drum-kit and bass bounce against the walls with the unexpected delight of a synth which, rather than being a calming influence, adds to the fire with its zigzag of keys – inevitably – for those who know the site – my advice has to be – play it loudly or don’t play it at all.
