Earlier this month they released their eponymous five track EP (available on bandcamp).
Combining keys and guitar Garage Sales are able to travel a surprising wide soundscape from whimsical to melancholic and the alternation of the two voices adds to this breadth of output, resulting in an EP in which the audience finds much to hold attention.
The English alt-folk creator Hannah Scott released the single Weight Of Your Words today.
Released as a two track single, available on bandcamp, one an electronically enhanced version, the other acoustic. My preference being the acoustic version as it allows, in my view, greater magnification the finer nuances of the superlative vocal to shine more clearly, along with having a soundtrack that more accurately reflects of the fragility of the sentiment of the track, hence more powerful entirely because of its more tender flow.
The guitar lays out a delicate architecture to which bowed instrumentation generates a melancholic atmosphere while the lyric, with its nascent narrative, is given focus through the transfixing, emotive vocal delivery.
The New Zealand alt-folk creator Re:Gretabull releases the single Strangers on the 5th of May.
For those who already know Greta Bull-Crossan from previous releases you will find a very different soundscape from previous material as Strangers compacts the open fret-work to deliver a more synth laden track.
For those who don’t know Re:Gretabull of pivotal point in the music is a singular voice which is able to wrest emotional context, without ever becoming saccharine, from the driest moment with a luscious softness to the vocal no matter where it is in pitch, enabling the compositions to unerringly extend across keys, both minor, major and octaves, leaving the listener in rapt attention.
