The Scottish melancholic-rock quartet Motion released their eponymous EP on the 9th.
The air fills with a palpable sense of sadness as the music floats through the air on extended glittering delayed guitar notes with a double time percussion giving the feeling of two platelets moving at different speeds revolving around each other, which gives the songs their shadowy texture, through which bass fades in and out of earshot while a sorrowful echoing vocal rounds out the immersive sounds created by Motion.
The US alt-rock trio ViceVersa released the AA side single Soulja/Hip Hop yesterday.
Available on bandcamp, the release comprises of tracks with very different temperaments – Hip Hop being a grime cover version while Soulja – my pick of the release being a funky dirty-blues number that bleeds extended guitar riffs through the room which find the listener bending the strings on their air-guitar while knotting their finger joints in accompaniment.
The US alt-rock trio Mister Heavenly release the LP Boxing The Moonlight on the 6th of October.
