MODLEE

MODLEE

An approximately twenty five minutes album (available on bandcamp) of electro riven sounds which floats smoothly around the room wrapping the listener in gossamer threads of the finest silk.

The fifth track is Follow Me.

Minurva – Hurricane – Audio

The Canadian solo synth-folk project Minurva released the EP Heart at the end of last month.

Minurva

An hypnotic and spellbinding thread of four tracks running for only roughly a dozen minutes, yet, the listener leaves Heart with the sense that time has been suspended. There is a natural yet almost ethereal flow to the music as synthetics and instrumentation thread between each other as voice peers from behind thick voile.

The opener – Hurricane gives a keen sense of the concept of the EP (available on bandcamp)

Underpinning the feisty barbs of the pointed sticks of his latest track –  Chains And Laurels – is an introspective underlay which nestles in Ischaemia inducing blockages of platelets which burst across the ears in pulsating moments of tautly held fret-board, prior to dissolving in to cascades of evocative bluesy chords to the accompaniment of a vocal that lilts of Norwegian Wood.

It is for the dichotomies of contrasting ideas that sit entangled within a song lasting only three and one sixth minutes that supplies the intrigue which holds the listener steadfast whilst looking forward to more to hear in due course.

Little Bird – Bring It On Home – Audio

Little Bird is a grunge-blues band from Canada.

My apologies to every one for the delay in getting to this. Back in September Ronny Bernard (Vocals / Guitar) and I first exchanged emails and at the tail end of November I was alerted to the release of their eponymous three track single on the 30th of that month (available on bandcamp), I have only now caught up with it and I am actually typing this on the 11th, though you won’t see it until the 15th. The messenger, on this occasion, deserves to be shot.

Combining dirty guitar with crowded echoing vocals Little Bird surface with music that creates its own timbre in the space in which it is played as the counterpointing bass trips to the percussion creating a distinctive sound in which the listener burrows their ears, like a mole digging tunnels in the dark, to expose a store of roots and warmth in which to rejoice.

I am aware that Little Bird have more songs in their pockets, which I look forward to being able to feature, hopefully in a more timely manner, but for now have revealed only three and my pick of the selection is the middle number – Bring It On Home.

Altar Eagles

Altar Eagles

From the forthcoming reveal – Skeletal – surfaced on the 6th as a stand alone single  – which is a string bending just over three and a sixth minutes of reflective commentary which dissolves inside its own creationism.
