On the 2nd of February 2018 the US retro-rock project Gyasi will be releasing the LP Peacock Fantasies.

The first song to surface from the album has also been released as a stand alone single, which is the last of the six tracks on the LP – Sugar Mama – that spears directly out of the golden age of UK rock’n’roll with its glittering bravado and unfettered self-confidence underpinned by technical competence – as the listener is minded of Marc Bolan.

Other than head to the make-up bag to paint the face my only other advice being ensure the air microphone is to hand to accompany the music and turn up the volume – then hit play.

Mobilities – Built From The Ground – Single Review

The US rock quartet Mobilities released the single Built From The Ground on the 15th.

Allow me to assist, when you hit play, no need to do as I did – check for a fault with the foundations of the building or contemplate – perhaps an earthquake? – as the speakers teeter and topple.




It really is the superb crunching drum roll, courtesy of Derick Thomas who can be found working with as little as the sparsity of a couple of toms, one hanging the other floor, a snare, a bass-drum and a ride and a hi-hat, that is causing all the damage – and that is even before everything in the band gets in to full flow.

A well balanced bass adds the to the sense of the room falling down around the ears, whilst meticulous guitar is able to give Built From The Ground (available on bandcamp) an unexpected spaciousness to the liquefying mass while vocal adds yet another dimension as it appears to surface at a completely different pace giving the single an all engrossing multitudinous layered texturing that will have the listener reaching for the replay button immediately.

Word also arrives that an LP – Time Hasn’t Swallowed Us Yet – is due for release on the 23rd of February 2018 – I find myself already wishing away January.

Absent Minded Professors – Flushed – Audio

The US alt-rock quartet Absent Minded Professors released the EP Flushed on the 15th.

Absent Minded Professors - Flushed

Absent Minded Professors

The new release (available on bandcamp) finds Absent Minded Professors in a different frame of mind than music of theirs featured previously with a searing heat burning out of the speakers as the high-impact rock fires through the room. That isn’t to say the layering of earlier material has disappeared as in addition to delivering punch they are also able to vary the dynamics within tracks to create a sound which has a slightly psychedelic flow.

The title track and first of the five on the EP – Flushed – serves as a good introduction to the ensuing texturing within the complete release.

Pillowsnake – All Devouring Black Hole Loan Sharks – Audio

Pillowsnake is an angst project from the USA.

Pillowsnake

Pillowsnake

Lo-fidelity is conjoined to blurry soundscape and the listeners will polarise in to two distinct mind processes: One, the vast majority I would think, to run away in panicked horror as fast as possible; I trust you are of the other thought and will take time to tarry with a musician who extrapolates the core of the narrative of a world which has regressed in to one in which every action is likely to be met with someone else who professes they have taken affront, akin to a baby bawling that they need immediate attention, resultingly the music is a conundrum of conflicting process.

I do implore you to take time to take a listen to the extensive back catalogue over the past year.

Sammy Maximin is an electronica creator from the USA.

Spreading winds broadly the range of styles encompassed are wide, taking in hip-hop, synthwave, soul, electro-rock and much more along the way, yet wherever the spotlight is shining the creativity is undimmed and thereby never leaving the listener feeling shortchanged rather discovering their day lifted.

The most recent EP The Wedding Process encapsulates the breadth of influences with each of the five tracks refracting of a very different facet. My pick of the release being the electro-rock influenced middle number – Ex-Friends (Gone).
