The Scottish dream-wave outfit L-space released the single Space Junk on the 17th.
The song is cleverly named and written as the dreamy synths are interspersed with distorted interference giving Space Junk a grainy perspective, that reflects both of nature of outer-space with the myriad of comets and showers of rock fragments, as well within the earths pull the many abandoned satellites drifting around earth yet, lyrically described, through the seeming clutter there is an unfathomable beauty and spaciousness that lays therein with the winding guitar calmly unravelling itself through the just over four minutes track evolving from an almost unheard addendum to a clear focus of energy.
Space Junk – L-Space is available on iTunes.*

BountyTweex is a new Russian dreamwave duo.
Currently there is just the one track around Only One Thing, though I am given to believe a second song will surface next week and an LP later in the year.
The dreamy vocal curls around the listener with its captivating echo while electronica adds a multi-dimensional ever changing backdrop allowing the BountyTweex to deliver a roughly six and a half minutes song in Only One Thing that doesn’t seem in the least excessive, in fact could comfortably hold attention for considerably longer.
News of the future material suggests that amongst it will be songs of faster dance pace and I look forward to hearing what else BountyTweex have tucked away in the locker.

On the 15th the US hip-hop trio The Gxng released the single SSDD.
It is always a pleasure to discover rap artists who are prepared and able to coexist with each other rather than attempting to outshine and in SSDD (available on bandcamp) the end result is a track that speaks of cohesion with a wider world and rather than attempting to slice out space of how they are the pack leader, they recognise that the 99% are equally as in bad shape. Delivering a track that reflects of societal entrapment, encased inside harmonic structures, whilst shining a search-light out of the darkness – for everyone.

Johnny Kills is an English garage-rock trio.
Another review I am late to get to, sorry…
…The sarcasm sears the ears akin to the tingle of Coleman’s English Mustard replacing a layer of butter on one side in a sandwich, whilst eyes stream due to the heat the taste-buds equally dance in delight in their latest track – Let’s Talk About Me (available on bandcamp).
The fuzzy guitar roar nuzzles away in to ever corner of the room like a demented robovac that is on a hefty trip of amphetamines as the axed drum kit sounds as though it is chasing over the stage with a bass that is slung to loosely holding pegs with vocal stretching delayed echo giving Let’s Talk About Me a need for an immediate replay even more loudly.

Approaching Black & White is an alternative rock trio from the USA.
Approaching Black & White
There are only three tracks around, for those of us who haven’t had the chance to see them play live, the latest of which being Evergreen (available on bandcamp), my apologies for getting to this a little late as it has been sitting in my email inbox for a few weeks now.
The slightly emo tinged, just under two and a half minutes, track has an underbelly of sadness, which they are able to evoke through a rising and falling beat, giving Evergreen a feeling of organic flow in which the listener remains attendant.
Approaching Black & White is a trio I look forward to hearing more of in short order.
