L – space – Brother Mars – Audio

The dream-wave Scottish duo L – space released the EP Sol Ø within the past twenty four hours.

The about sixteen minutes four track release drifts across the room leaving spectral traces in its wake. Each of the pieces on Sol Ø offer different textures, sometimes flowing with piano, other-times a thread of sound led by synthesis and electric guitar.

Brother Mars – the second number on the EP (available on bandcamp) is steeped in acoustic guitar. Befittingly L – space have offered the listener a wide palette of ideas to get to know them in this, their follow-up to their début single Propaganda, which was of more urgent tempo, from earlier this month and it will be interesting to trace their journey to discover where, or if, they settle.

From the forthcoming EP is The Psychopath Test.

Those of longer stay will know I make no secret of my diagnosis of psychopathy and three decades of meetings with Forensic Psychiatrists and Psychologists with both of the two teams seeking to attempt to ensure I remain vaguely civil – so I should be railing against a song which – in the same vein that so many like to ‘blanket meme’ an ideology fed by the 1% – that Women only exist to be abused, those who are not WASPS deserve contempt, Transsexuals are the death of civilisation, those of Islamic faith are all suicide bombers and immigrants are the reason you are struggling to make ends meet – which is the actual message from this track – do as the 1% tell you to – but I won’t dwell on that ideologue.

I always judge music, by the music and whilst I personally find the concept of the track as something delivered through ignorance of a personality trait – we are not all axe-murderers and most of us are attempting to get by in a world full of folks with whom we don’t empathise – the composition of the song I did enjoy and I am sure you will too. So – I forgive them their vainglorious Daily Mail Headline enveloped stupidity – and I hope you will too as the song is worth hearing.

I may be less forgiving if the next track they reveal suggests that abuse of women is not an abomination, merely the predators right of expression – because Donald Trump and Boris Johnson intimate it is thus.

A band who have featured on the site from time to time since their introduction in 2012. Over the years their style has evolved and the newest track – Collisions – finds them delivering a piece which will have a natural home at an after-party.

A while in gestation, the album Rebel Rebel was signposted over a year ago, with Collisions being the first composition to come from the LP.  On the basis of the latest song -I reconfirm what I said in September 2015 – I look forward to hearing the full release.
