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 Brazilian experimental-lofi project Electric Light Pulp released the LP In Reverse on the 6th.
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.
The Brazilian progressive-acoustic creator Luan Bates released his début three track single Listen Up, Mates last month.
Diarising of the a world as it evolves around him Luan makes commentary of the realities of his own circumstances, making for tracks of gritty realism, for which I raise a hat and ask you spend time in his company.
The middle tack is This Weight (Part 2) – and the release is available on Bandcamp.
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.
