A five track release (available on bandcamp) in which The Nightmare Police deliver both punchy indie-rock and emo infused contemplatives. Whilst ground that has been much trodden, nonetheless, the trio are able to offer a refreshing take providing the listener with roughly fourteen minutes of enjoyable songs that isn’t time wasted to get to know.

The closing track Where Were You is a fine display in which the trio are able to vary tempo and temper with clean and energised drum-kit surrounded by a hustling bass and guitar which is given space to deliver expressive rips and roars with vocal merging in to the overall composition.

There are numerous tracks which have surfaced over the past couple of months, each bringing a new idea to the table and able to stand alone its own feet and marking an album full of individual diamonds. My preference of which – is not the newest to be revealed.

The title track Gravity Wave has a sultry hip thrusting intonation that is best heard in company with at least one partner as oiled loins intertwine to the psychedelic just under five minutes of undulating guitar and electronica. If there was ever a track that needed an extended version to satiate the induced lust – this is a prime example.

Bright Dog Red – Bullet Proof Shoes – Single Review

Bright Dog Red is a US freewave collective.

You may instinctively have thought that a single review meant that the track lasted for around three minutes or so – however those who have been with the site for a while do know it is possible to hit play, cook supper, eat the meal and still have time to relax with a cup of coffee before the song has finished – this is one of those occasions.

Just over half an hour of extemporised psychedelic jazz-hop trickles through the room in Bullet Proof Shoes (available on bandcamp) in a track that has a dark air about it reflective of the parlous state of social cohesion which exists throughout the globe, evoked visually by the release artwork of the unlaced footwear which stands as powerful an image as if they were depicted tied over hanging cables.

I feel as though I have suddenly become a religious zealot confessing their sins in the hope of redemption as for the second time in the past twenty four hours this is featured with an apology. It was back in January that Night Hikes first made contact and even the follow up exchange of emails result in me only getting back to this half a month late. I am sure you are less interest in my ever present administration errors than the music…

…With around three quarters of an hour of music to hear Night Hikes offer compositions that, akin to drifting clouds on a summer day, cast only a hazy shadow on the listener as guitar, bass, synth and percussion gently flow through the room in melting layers of texture whilst the hushed vocal caresses the ears leaving the listener becalmed and bewitched by the luxurious softness of touch of the compositions.

Night Hikes are not a band to play as you rush for the daily commute, rather far better to lounge with when time is not of the essence to fully enjoy and experience the silky webs of the songs.
