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.
It has been approaching eighteen months since the Brazilian alt-rock quartet Hell Oh! last featured.
Hell Oh! – Blush
Their latest single – released on the 14th – Blush discovers Hell Oh! with more psychedelic tint than much of their music previously featured.
Pace is slowed and lazily drifting shimmering guitar weaves through Blush giving the track an expansive air in which phrases hang in the air to be savoured before, gradually building replacement chords replace the sonics, with the listener always left with the sense that they are listening to billowing clouds of sound that run through the just over four minute track.
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.
Pablo Caballero (Guitar / Vocals), Dante Sultani (Guitar), Lautaro Vallilengua (Bass) and Fernán Mareque (Drums) from Buenos Aires in Argentina form the progressive rock band Panchita la Pistolera.
Panchita La Pistolera
Allowing themselves plenty of space in which to deliver their ideas Panchita la Pistolera do not however steal time from the audience, as each side-step invites the ears in to a new warren of exploration in which there is much to discover.
These are seasoned musicians who are more than able to create their own recipe from scratch and the resulting pitches of almost vertical yawing of guitar laid against an undulating bass which congress around a busy drum provides ample opportunity for the vocals to spiral into a new burrow to furrow.
Having been around for a few years now Panchita la Pistolera have both the confidence and ability to grab hold of the listener and lead them on a journey of intrigue.
It has been a while since Moxine have been featured singing in Portuguese, the latest single Dois Estranhos, released today breaks the chain.
A more contemplative track than much of their music Dois Estranhos has a warmth that reaches out of the speakers generating a connection between two strangers as the curling wisps float around the room.
