As regular readers know I take particular delight in music which, to be fully enjoyed, needs to be played at full volume through as many speakers as are at disposal, particularly when there is distortion and it lasts less than three minutes – so it is with delight that I introduce Beach Riot. For reasons of my poor admin despite having exchanged numerous emails since early this year – I have managed to not get to them in any semblance of good order – finally – Slackers – which was released on the 12th.

One hundred and seventy one seconds of pounding rock’n’roll that strips away any loose plaster on the walls by a band you just know instinctively you want to go and party with and who I look forward to hearing more of, in short order.

The English rock’n’blues quartet King Ziggy released the single Big Dog on the 14th.

Delta blues combines with pulsing beat to deliver a track, in Big Dog, that fills the room with soaring riffs and dancing feet.

The gravelly vocal and guitars are transposed with bouncing throaty bass and fiery percussion allowing King Ziggy to deliver a song that is of deep texture and one that demands immediate replay.

Just about eighteen months in to existence, this is an outfit who I expect to hear much more of at ever larger stages in short order and I look forward to following their progress.

Pioneer Salesmen – In Recollection You Find – Single Review

Pioneer Salesmen is a new US alternative rock trio.

With just one song to hear – the aptly named – In Recollection You Find – a song which has a retrospective feel.

The long strung guitar gives the track an elasticated expansion and contraction, delivering the feeling of bending of time, with bass rumbling along the skirting board whilst percussion provides In Recollection You Find a subtle energy as the vocal, which lays lightly hazed in gauze, affords a slightly trippy feel.

I look forward to hearing much more in short order and on the basis of their first reveal, Pioneer Salesman, have an assured future ahead.

The music enters the room with a restrained flourish prior to developing in every increasing waves of resplendence, yet, FLING are sufficiently able to pull in the reigns and deliver a song, which, rather than falling over in to an ostentatious gaudiness discovers the listener being delighted by the good humour and sleight of hand as, like a skilled table magician, they are able to judge that ‘enough’ means leaving the audeince wanting more rather than less.

Synthetics, guitars, percussion and vocals are able to deliver, in Just A Dog, a retrospective soundtrack that one can only hope foretells of an LP to follow in short order.

Nuns Of The Tundra – Dead In The Desert – Single Review

The English stoner quartet Nuns Of The Tundra released the single Dead In The Desert on the 7th.

There has been just one change in the line-up – Jim Smith joining on bass and replacing Callum Croft since Nuns Of The Tundra last appeared, in 2014.

Dead In The Desert (available on bandcamp) has a darker and more psilocybin mushroom feel than last featured with pace having considerably slowed, allowing for a more spacious soundscape.

A prominent bass gives the track a dark presence through which the two guitars intertwine like coloured candles dripping wax in to a melting pool resulting in a kaleidoscopic array of sound, while the percussion affords Dead In The Dark a continual flowing presence as the vocal drifts, unhurriedly, in out and of focus.

I merely hope it is prior to 2020 that I get back to the Nuns Of The Tundra.
