milkd – Come Out – Single Review

The Scottish acoustic-blend duo milkd were introduced earlier this year.

The latest single Come Out (available on bandcamp) is of different countenance than previous material featured as the singular vocal is given more largesse in which to shine in the spotlight and the audience resultingly rests in greater appreciation of a superlative voice, though to denigrate the composition which is reliant on counter melodic guitar to afford the song its enticing ebb and flow would be remiss as sans the dichotomy of pace and chord structures the vocal would be lost in a crowd.

It is for the ability of milkd to identify that every element of their music is of equal important to allow the output to have its impact, even though to many the main focus will be the engrossing vocal, others of us are more fixated on the intricacy of a guitar which slips in and out major and minor chords with no hesitation or fracturing, which I particularly commend.

Park Planet – Through – Single Review

The Scottish nu-disco outfit Park Planet revealed a new track within the past twenty hours.

Park Planet - Through

Park Planet

Through is a further track to be released which is sign-posted as coming from the tale of the long projected second album, with the working title Rebel, Rebel.

The song has a more electronic and jazz influenced layering than much of their material that has featured over the years, with instrumentation playing a backdrop with a draw that minds of Ashley Reaks though of divergent process in which Park Planet take the listener on a trippy-step around the dance-floor in its just under four and a quarter minutes duration rather than a bleak journey of disquiet.

Colin’s Godson – Built In Obsolescence – Audio

The Scottish electro-hum outfit Colin’s Godson released the LP Colin’s Godson in Silicon Heaven yesterday.

Colin’s Godson

A dozen track album (available on bandcamp) which minds of space invaders and green computer graphics as the analogue synthetics blip thought the ears inviting the listener to enjoy nostalgia with no guilt complex and I implore you to take the roughly twenty seven minutes to hang out in their company.

The closing track, the most obstreperously minded, necessarily being my pick of the release –  Built In Obsolescence.

On the 24th of September the Scotland based Australian alt-folk project Invisible Dears released the eponymous EP.

Invisible Dears

Just as the listener is thinking they are settled in to the landscape of luxuriant dayglo comforters the tempo changes to a cèilidh in which to step in gleeful abandon. None more so pronounced than the opening track of the five on the EP, available on bandcamp, If You Can and necessarily why it is my pick of the release.

Saint McCabe

Easily flighted darts of electronica wriggle through the room one moment of infectious dance-beat in another a dark shadowy presence, what marks out Saint McCabe a clear space of its own is the impressive and expressive vocal which is able to deliver a lilting cadence of ever changing movement.

The opening track on the single (available on bandcamp) is Now I Clean For Pleasure.
