A couple of song have surfaced from the album (available on bandcamp) each of slightly different idea, though brimming with joie-de-vivre.
The most recent, Fatigue, the third of the ten tracks being the sprightlier with one hundred and forty seconds of spiky-topped garage that grabs the audience by the wrist and launches them on to the dance-floor.
The US alternative rock trio My Glorious released the single Sexy on the 6th.
Taking their music to even darker mood than their last reveal – Sexy – is a track in which My Glorious allow the open spaces to speak as loudly as the music as the song slowly pulses through the room in magisterial robe as the trio deliver, what to me is their finest body of work, thus far.
Pioneer Salesmen is a new US alternative rock trio.
With just one song to hear – the aptly named – In Recollection You Find – a song which has a retrospective feel.
The long strung guitar gives the track an elasticated expansion and contraction, delivering the feeling of bending of time, with bass rumbling along the skirting board whilst percussion provides In Recollection You Find a subtle energy as the vocal, which lays lightly hazed in gauze, affords a slightly trippy feel.
I look forward to hearing much more in short order and on the basis of their first reveal, Pioneer Salesman, have an assured future ahead.
The US emo trio Rainer Maria release their eponymous LP on the 18th of August.

Fuzzy guitar surrounds the room with shadowed percussion and veiled vocal delivering, in the second of the nine tracks on the LP Suicides And Lazy Eyes, a mesmeric, just under three and two thirds minutes, song in which the listener finds themselves hypnotised.
