It has been a couple of years since the US rock duo Hobosexual were introduced.

In support of Record Store Day on the 16th of April Hobosexual will be releasing the three track single Good Bad Taste, which is available on bandcamp.
The first track, Illegal Sensations is a big blues rock number in which the duo have managed to find room to manoeuvre inside the punchy riffs that spin across the room. Spreading the bars more widely Hobosexual have not lost any of their impact, but have permitted themselves more space to explore the ideas.
The US dark-wave duo Heaven Falls Hard released the LP The Mercy-Go-Round earlier in the month.
Heaven Falls Hard
The just over half an hour eight track album is a dark cloak of despondency that will have you coming back for more.
The penultimate number Hidden encapsulates the beauty of the compositions as synthesiser and melancholic guitar splice inside one another like treacle gliding off a spoon. The dark molasses form shadowy shapes which contort inside themselves, whilst the extended voice gently attenuates, akin to espying someone gently expiring.
Mind The Journey is the psychedelic project of Spencer Sabo from the USA.

Combinations of distorted loops are interspersed with meandering harmonies as the sixth of the twelve tracks on the LP Color In The Gray Machine – Rose Colored Glasses slips into the room. With a diametric shift in presentation at fifty seconds into the four minute track, the listener is initially confused, though quickly settles again into the reversals that emerge from the speakers.
