Perhaps appropriately named as Lord Willing – the LP – Are You Happy? which is now posited as slimmed to an EP – was planned for release on the 31st of May – yet now in mid-September and only now – from the still forthcoming release has just surface Green Doesn’t Look Good On You. Blips on the road take nothing away from the quality of the music as the song saunters through the room.

On listening to the song you will also ponder whilst reaching for another glass of whisky, no let’s make that a whiskey, this delay all makes perfect sense as the frayed skipped beat fills the focus. There is no rush and if the Lord Willingly decides that the full release doesn’t surface until sometime next year, that is all fine and dandy – Jack Daniels all around please, as we await. To answer the rhetorical question of the full release name – yes I am – especially now.

Green Doesn’t Look Good on You – Single – Lord Willing is available on iTunes.*

Following on quickly from the LP City Slackers the new single (available on bandcamp) is a snarling release that, rightly, takes fire at those who want to control others bodies and minds with the profits being donated to Planned Parenthood.

Both song titles summarise the concept of each composition – this is White Bread President.

Eric Contractor – Working Dude – Single Review

Eric Contractor is a US electro-rock creator.

The most recent track to surface is Working Dude – a song which wraps muscular limbs around the listener with teasing vocal which straightens between tenor and the upper reaches of baritone, whilst also arching on towards the lower end of countertenor and for those who have connected with the site over the years – baritone – even if it only dips a toe part way down the scale it is likely to pique my interest and here is a case in point.

It is rare I spend so long rambling about the voice – with the instrumentation, percussion and where relevant, synthesis, more usually taking the foreground of features – so you will already be attuned that Eric Contractor has a voice that captivates.

Much like the genre suggests from which ever opening point you start to listen – be it at the beginning or even midway through one of the four tracks on Ear Op (available on bandcamp) the construct of the compositions means they can all be put on a loop of continuity that will leave your mind lost to its own imagination as the music prods and probes various cortical and subcortical parts of the brain firing up flares of abstractly connected networks.

The closing number is As If It Were So.

Creating music that is marked by a hazy guitar laying on extended notes gives the material a dreamy slightly trippy backdrop that slowly unfurls through the room whilst solid bass and percussion provide the spine with vocal floating as though a disembodied ethereal presence, which tops off the highly engaging compositions.

The second of the eleven track is Glass.
