Longer stay readers may recollect the name Martin Dick from the Argentinian band Tirman Kid, with whom he still plays and sings.
A slew of releases surfaced at the end of last month – two LPs and two singles and by way of an introduction to a project I hope to come back to later in the year with more detail – the single Muy Tarde – which is available on bandcamp.
The Spain based French and Argentinian alt-folk duo Le Garçon Rêvé released the LP Eat Your Make Up earlier in the month.
Le Garçon Rêvé
A roughly thirty seven minutes, nine track album, which quietly and confidently steps from the speakers as Le Garçon Rêvé deliver a soundtrack steeped in adroitly handled acoustic guitar.
My selection from Eat Your Make Up (available on bandcamp) is the fifth number, Pensées Étranglées, which features a viola allowing the duo to add considerable texture to the piece whilst equally containing the most prepossessing vocal performance on the release.
The Argentinian indie-light project of Agus Samur – One Man Dancing is set to release the LP Memories Of A New Home in January 2017.
One Man Dancing
The first track to surface from the ten on the album – Blank Page, whilst being of slight initial texture is well worth spending the just under four and a half-minutes run time – as underpinning the veneer lays a solid cask of oak with a poignant pianoforte that is able to gnarl the speakers with its blocky dampened pedal, giving the track an unanticipated resonance and finds me looking forward to discovering more about the other nine tracks.
The Argentinian alt-indie outfit La Ciudad Bajo La Niebla are putting finishing touches to the LP La Ciudad Bajo La Niebla En El Tiempo De Los Ciegos.
La Ciudad Bajo La Niebla
La Ciudad Bajo La Niebla continue to deliver music that pours scorn on the world around, whilst maintaining the slightly psychedelic tinge to the output allowing them, in Pare Limpiarme La Sangre, the first track to appear from the forthcoming album, to call for a change in the status quo, while wrapping it in a composition that drifts hazily through the room.
