The ten track album (available on bandcamp) is full of surprises as the quintet utilise the variety of strings and bows at their disposal to create songs which have the audience tapping their feet as they explore the rootsy source of their influence.

Of the pieces I have so far been able to hear, my selection is the Latin-folk swaying tempo of the second track – Bright Orange Suit.

Martin Del Carpio has featured on the site numerous times over the past few years always with a melancholic-electronica backdrop and The Motel Room Song marks a step change in instrumentation with acoustic guitar featuring prominently, where there is distinct similarity is the down-temp introspective nature of the track, which is available on bandcamp.

Distractor

Three songs surfaced recently in which Distractor combine grungy instrumentation with expanding synthetics giving the material a retro-modernist feel in which the listener can allow their limbs to flex and relax without skipping a beat.

Falling Down The Stairs is of most furious construct and self-evidently my pick of the three. Highlighted by a vocal display that heads back to Magazine and how could I not be smitten?
