Carter – BFFN – Audio

The Surinamese downtempo project Carter released the EP Tranga late last month.

A five track EP, Tranga (available on bandcamp), is a roughly nineteen minutes release that slowly unfurls its contemplative of self-doubt through the room, leaving the listener wreathed in silken threads of querying-thoughts.

By way of an introduction – the middle song – BFFN.

Although recorded quite a while ago, it was only very recently that a live performance of Quicksand came to light and always a pleasure it is too to return to their music.

Le Garçon Rêvé – Pensées Étranglées – Audio

The Spain based French and Argentinian alt-folk duo Le Garçon Rêvé released the LP Eat Your Make Up earlier in the month.

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.

Electric Light Pulp – Nearly Awake On The Analogic Universe – Audio

The Brazilian experimental-lofi project Electric Light Pulp released the LP In Reverse on the 6th.

Electric Light Pulp - Nearly Awake On The Analogic Universe

Electric Light Pulp

Introduced earlier in the year in In Reverse, Electric Light Pulp, takes the compositions to an even more experimental level with an eclectic range of ambient tracks on the six track album (available on bandcamp).

My pick of the release is the penultimate – Nearly Awake On The Analogic Universe which lasts for only just under two and a half minutes, but seems to hold time in abeyance with sounds of dial-up modems and shifting tempos that uncurl through the room.
