With something of a cinematographic atmosphere Californians Drive All Day (In The Sunshine), the tenth of the bakers dozen tracks on the album oozes a warmth as the unhurried synthetics drift like balmy summer rays through the listeners ears. Although only lasting for less than two and a half minutes, the composition still, is able, to paint a generous soundscape.


Utopian Dreams [Explicit] is available on Amazon.

Park Planet – We Can’t Stop You – Audio

The Scottish nu-disco trio Park Planet are still working towards the release of the LP Rebel Rebel.

Park Planet - We Can't Stop You

Park Planet

Given the history of my relationship with Park Planet since 2012, I can safely say they keep a diary as poorly as I. The most recent email to which I responded, just a few moments ago was one from April 2015. But none of that matters as creating music is what they are good at doing and most recently to surface was the track We Can’t Stop You.

In theory the LP Rebel Rebel will be released this year, however even they are doubtful of this idea and although this is stated as the second track track to be revealed from the LP, which may well have changed its name by the time of its arrival, do bear in mind this is in principal the third track from the album I have featured that reference to it – with the first indication of the new LP  and the track – Dropping It – having been introduced back in 2015. Which makes their conundrums all the more a pleasure.

My advice however is to always enjoy new tracks as they arise, as they are always worth holding close the the chest.

To rewrite that introductory paragraph again – We Can’t Stop You – which may on may not be an on LP, that may not ever be released, that may or may not end up being called Rebel Rebel. Turn down all other noises and immerse yourself in the just over three and a half minutes of hip snaking music.

From the forthcoming album (available on bandcamp), the fifth of the ten tracks, DLR Dreaming is just under four and three quarter minutes composition that minds the listener of thrashing in quicksand as it calmly massages, a racing and panic stricken instinct, to proffer sanguine meditation and clarity of perspective, resultingly, gently lifting the listeners from a solipsism of their own making.

Since their introduction in September of last year Dama Scout have secured regular live performance appearances and released the uptempo single, All In Too, that came out in December.

Paper Boy, returns to the territory of their début single, Forget It’s Good (both available on bandcamp), with a luscious texturing of subsumed echoing vocal surrounded by gauzy guitar that fills the room with a hazy rolling warmth in which the listener wants to wrap themselves and stay warm in the comforting embrace of the music.
