In an homage to the one hundred and twenty five year old amusement park in Wisconsin, at which Elvis Presley purportedly found enjoyment – hence the retro-feel of the compositions, with tracks named after rides.

The penultimate of the six songs – Bumper Cars leaves the listener happily stepping around the room.

Within the past eight hours the fourth of the six tracks on the album (available on bandcamp) was revealed.

By The Spider’s Thread We Are Linked which, as their previous material, takes the listener on an eerie journey of dark mountain valleys and looming cliff-faces as the just under five minute composition spreads its dark cloud through the room leaving the listener to conjure up tales of their own making to the soundtrack.

Montufar is a relatively new gazewave project from the USA.

Centred around Victor Montufar with additional instrumentation added as and where needed. With only a couple of tracks around, I look forward to hearing more. The most recent reveal being Ghosts, that was released on the 21st (available on bandcamp).

There is a palpable sadness that drifts across the room as the combinations of synths, piano and guitar, unhurriedly, weave around each other in a graceful flow of hazy texturing whilst the dual vocals provides Ghosts with its haunting presence as the percussion provides an unexpected, though delicious, pulse to the composition.

Sometimes working alone, other-times in collaboration with others, the latest track to surface which came out on the 21st – Homicide – was produced by Kush2x.

An acoustic and harp led track that fascinates from the outset with the unexpected instrumentation and melody that flows through a song.

My apologies that this feature is late, as the introduction was made on the 6th.

With a few pieces behind them, thom simon, offer the listener a broad stretch of ideas, within their material, that dates back for over three years. Sometimes psychedelic, other times funky-reggae and even as is the case in their latest track, which came out earlier this month – Driving Dreams (available on bandcamp) – surfy-garage-dance – always engaging and having been filtered through a gauze the resulting music has a warmth of sound that embraces the listener.

It is of little surprise they are securing a wider touring base and Festival appearances. I look forward to hearing more of thom simon, in short order.
