We Could Build An Empire

Their music is always generous of soundscape giving the music a mix of powerful rock and spacey trippiness in which the listener is taken on journeys of vaguely psychedelic carpet rides as their mind expands with the compositions.

The penultimate song is also the title track – In This Place.

Earlier this month the eleven track LP Invasive Species (available on bandcamp) was released.

The bulk of the album is the signature sound of a trippy blend of fuzzy guitar, punctilious percussion and scathing lyric being constant hallmark over the years.

The penultimate song Invasive Species: The Second Wave having written of the typically fuzz of the guitar, is an acoustic led composition.

Cavalcade – Bat Your Lashes – Single Review

The English alt-rock quartet Cavalcade released the single Bat Your Lashes on the 2nd.

Cavalcade - Bat Your Lashes

Cavalcade

Introduced earlier in the year Cavalcade have undergone a transformation by allowing their abilities to shine out from under the bushel with regular live appearances, an ever expanding performance circuit and a growing fan-base.

The newest single, Bat Your Lashes, can’t help but build on their growing reputation for delivering high-energy rock’n’roll which scoops the audience in its arms and launches them on to the dance-floor in good humour.

In Bat Your Lashes an analogue synth effect is added to the mix giving the track a warm glow whilst the guitars, percussion and bass switch spotlight affording the under two and a half minutes of the composition rich layers of texturing while the pressing vocal, which from time to time is chorused, provides the essential of earthy rawness which is a central pivot to their impressive compositions.

Bat Your Lashes – Single – Cavalcade is available on iTunes.*

Delivering a broad remit of ideas in the nine track, just over half an hour, album (available on bandcamp) The Grey Merchant are nonetheless able to keep the listener engaged with the variations of tempo, texturing and temperament as the music flows through dark dichotomy, fulminating fury, melancholic meanderings and more –  resulting leaving the audience streaked in an absorbing mirage of their own interpretation.

Sadly I am not permitted to share my pick of the release with you at this juncture – on release do keep an ear out for the penultimate song, an achingly beautiful composition,  The Exchange.

The middle track is also the title of the album – Avenue De Rennes.

L Sicario – Interstellar – Single Review

L Sciaro is an England based alt-rock quartet.

L Sciaro

L Sciaro

Having served an apprenticeship on the regular haunts of developing bands in their area L. Scario are heading towards venues anew, deservedly so given the evidence of their début single Interstellar, which surfaced towards the end of last month. Which, even disregarding the video clues in the accompanying video, draws deep musical reference from Talking Heads with the interweaving of the trio of one bass and two six string guitars ploughing through the room drawn by an unfaltering percussion with the enigmatic and strident vocals soaring over everything.
