Opening the seven track release (available on bandcamp) is the just over six and a half minutes of  Welcome to Mendacity – a combination of guitar and multilayered electronica giving the composition a graininess in which there develops an ever growing sense of unremitting and unending air of industrial oppression.

Sixteen Scandals – Flawsophy – Audio

Sixteen Scandals is a Canadian fuzz-rock trio.

Sixteen Scandals

Turn up the volume and allow the hairs on your arms to wave in the aural breeze as Sixteen Scandals spiral across the room akin to a corkscrew being twisted in to the stopper on a bottle of wine, resulting in popping open a delightful scent that flows the room.

Reflections of frustrated tensions unleash themselves upon the audience with the emotive vocal throating of a wry reflection of a world of self-aggrandisement whilst an overclocking percussion thrashes the timpani as a barrage of bass punches the jawbone through which an intoxicating guitar plays its own stanzas – yet they are able to bring it all together in a delightful sound that brightens the day for its presence.

From their five track EP Dorkmanteau (available on bandcamp) the middle number – Flawsophy.

Over the coming months they are planning to put out a series of singles, the first of which, Flipped (available on bandcamp), was released on the 9th.

Flipped has a more oppressive air than much of their previously material cloaking the room in a darkening cloud.

The Lab is a new Canadian haunting-electronica duo.

The Lab

Word does arrive of an EP which is due for release around the end of the month, however, at present there is only one song to hear – Oceans.

Immediately on hitting play the listener finds themselves pondering are there only two players rather than a complete orchestra?

The sorrowful orchestration circles through the room in an alchemic synthesis of horns, kettledrum, organ, bows and strings which paint a celestial soundscape through which the voice, as though gliding on thermals, provides effortless broad pitch – leaving the audience spellbound by the mesmerising, quietly flowing, composition.
