Their latest release – The Rules – is an approaching five minutes of summer-vibe that fills the room with gliding feet as the silky synth presses through the body in warming waves of sound that extend an irresistible invitation on to the dance-floor with its retro-80’s flavouring.
The Amber Bugs from England recently revealed a live performance acoustic-rock track.
The Amber Bugs
Normally to be heard as a plugged-in indie rock band in Relax, The Amber Bugs, allow themselves to showcase a more wistful side to their performance abilities. A band who first made contact last year that it has taken a while to get back to, though do aim to feature again in short order with their more driving brand of rock.
The US grunge trio Dead Stars release the LP Perfect Patterns on the 1st of September.
Making a welcome return just over three years since their last feature.
Flattened intonations smear one in to the other and the listener finds themselves kicking their speakers just to check there is no extra volume left unreleased in to the space as Dead Stars, in the fourth of the dozen tracks on the album which is available on bandcamp, Pink Clouds detune everything and then let it loose in a walloping punch of oiled glove that slicks across the ears – is there no more these volume speakers can emit?
I merely hope to return to the trio prior to 2020.
The US electro-folk project Pattern released the single Dissonance on the 20th.
Underpinning the sorrowful narrative of relationship break down through missed opportunities of conversation threads a munificence of synth and guitar which percolates through the room like a wavering candle lighting the way out of a tunnel towards a brighter future and more meaningful mutual appreciation – in a tad under three and a quarter minutes release which is available on bandcamp.
The English slewed-rockabilly trio Honkies release the AA side single Entitled to Nothing / Moving to Berlin on the 28th.
That moment when you have had a beer too many, but are still the life and soul of the party? Honkies express it superbly in the two track release (available on bandcamp) as the music winds back, to double-check, inside its own thought process with the audience swaying in good humour as the songs slur across the room.
Pub rock as it should be played – turn it up and join in with Moving To Berlin (Mono).
