There is a different layering than music previously featured which is evident in both Crashin’ Slow and the B side Release The Pressure where rock guitar architecture builds the scaffolding to the songs as the looming tracks darken the doorway.

These are capable musicians and I look forward to hearing more in the coming years.

Crashin’ Slow – Single – Uptown Electronics is available on iTunes.*

The second of the four tracks on the EP – VHS #1 (A Body) – was revealed less than a dozen hours ago.

Having had the opportunity to listen to two of the tracks, with each being of different countenance, I can attest on this basis that Movie Was Bad is something to add to the collection.

With the option of either the opening song You Came a luscious layering of gazey guitar led by a beguiling vocal or VHS #1 (A Body) to feature there is little possibility I would choose anything other than a track that has a bass guitar strung so loosely you can almost see the wires poking out of the speakers with the synth taking supporting role as guitar and percussion add a dark presence with the sparse vocal menacing the ears.

Good Times, a riff laden number, is the first track to surface from a forthcoming LP.

Blue Nation are able to balance heavy rumbles and shimmering highs delivering music in which the listener finds plenty to engage as the trio create, in Good Times, a song which although lasting only three and a quarter minutes is richly textured with varieties of emphasis keeping the audience fully absorbed in the unhurried eloquence.

A new project with only three songs to hear, none of which none is more than a matter of less than five days old, there is a succulent morsel on which to gnaw as the synthesised xylophone chirps through the room layered by a flattened delayed loop which re-imagines the percussion in liquid form.

The listener is doused in the sense of a warm summer-shower as the track threads through the room refracting rainbows of colour in to which the audience is drawn whilst the song affords a depth of texturing which is completely unanticipated.

I often receive notification by readers who let me know they are taken by, and enjoy, the breadth of music featured and it does take me by surprise too as my roots are firmly based in punk rock from 1975 to 1979 so to digress outside that orbit is always something logically I am unable to articulate, however, music is intrinsically about emotional connection and not ‘fact based pragmatism’ – hence I am asking you to spend time with that from which theoretically I should already have run out of town to escape, though haven’t, and neither should you as within the song lays a cohesion of sounds which lay a spiders web of tensile flexibility in which to lay mesmerised.

The synthetic folds of They Come Along slip through their iterations as though a silk fan folding and expanding by which the listener becomes transfixed in the hypnotic weaving translucency of the composition.
