Frequency Cowboy - Move Closer

A less electronics riven and more morose sounds greets the ears with Move Closer in a track that keeps the listener engaged for its measured pacing and quietness.

Pretty Solitude

With a change in line-up and particularly with a new vocalist, there is necessarily a different emphasis to the material, though it retains its spacious fretwork as evidenced in their latest track You And I.

You and I (feat. Malin Wiklund) – Pretty Solitude is available on  iTunes.*

The latest track to surface from To Love, Allison, is a sprightly number which is threaded with gravitas supplied by the melancholic vocal, giving the piece an engrossing countenance.

Establishing themselves on the live circuit, occasionally music surfaces for those of us who haven’t seem them live to wrap out ears around, the latest being, BRENDA.

Lasting exactly two minutes – BRENDA scoots around the room like a clockwork toy as the trio deliver a song which will have you clapping along before the half-way mark as Venture Lows are a set of players who are able to start a party flowing and unsurprisingly have supported as the opening act for numerous tours and it can only be a matter of time before they are headlining their own.

Dead Natives – Something Strange – Audio

The English alt-indie quartet released the three track single Something Strange on the 13th.

A pressurised stream of music is uncorked on hitting play as the roughly eleven minutes of Something Strange fizzes in to the room.

Underpinning the prescriptive britpop temper Dead Natives are able to do far more than merely follow the formula as they inject a more pugnacious construct to the music, which is most prevalent in the opening track – the title – and my pick of the release (available on bandcamp), which perhaps unsurprisingly is the briefest – lasting more than a minute less than either of the other two pieces.

My hope is that Dead Natives continue with the compression with less use of the elongation as, to my ears, their material is far stronger when tautened rather than flowered.
