A new project with only three songs to hear, none of which none is more than a matter of less than five days old, there is a succulent morsel on which to gnaw as the synthesised xylophone chirps through the room layered by a flattened delayed loop which re-imagines the percussion in liquid form.

Haulm – They Came Along – Single Review

The US shimmerwave duo Haulm released the single They Came Along on the 11th.

The listener is doused in the sense of a warm summer-shower as the track threads through the room refracting rainbows of colour in to which the audience is drawn whilst the song affords a depth of texturing which is completely unanticipated.

I often receive notification by readers who let me know they are taken by, and enjoy, the breadth of music featured and it does take me by surprise too as my roots are firmly based in punk rock from 1975 to 1979 so to digress outside that orbit is always something logically I am unable to articulate, however, music is intrinsically about emotional connection and not ‘fact based pragmatism’ – hence I am asking you to spend time with that from which theoretically I should already have run out of town to escape, though haven’t, and neither should you as within the song lays a cohesion of sounds which lay a spiders web of tensile flexibility in which to lay mesmerised.

The synthetic folds of They Come Along slip through their iterations as though a silk fan folding and expanding by which the listener becomes transfixed in the hypnotic weaving translucency of the composition.

The Howlin’ Souls – Viva La Revolucion (again) – Single Review

The US rock’n’roll quartet released the single Viva La Revolucion (again) on the 13th.

The Howlin' Souls

The Howlin’ Souls

A song title often used by musicians and yet, other than the original Mexican Revolutionary song title in common, often not a cover rather a fresh take on current world politics and this is the case with The Howlin’ Souls and the track Viva La Revolucion (again) which is available on bandcamp.

More normally their music has a focus on extensive blues guitar – in the single emphasis is placed on the thumping drum kit which piles its way in to the ears with vocal subtly flowing in and out of limelight and while the riffs of the six stringer is, as expected, present it plays a more supporting role than usually the case.

The music, flows unhurriedly through the room as Blurred Out deliver a sound which has a grungy influence to it.

The second of the two songs on the single (available on bandcampBetrayed By The Wind being my pick of the release and a decent introduction to an outfit it will be interesting to follow over the years.
