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.
The Swedish indie-gaze creator itneverhappened revealed a new track within the past few hours.
the drive – features Kim Schulke on vocals, given the eclectic range of material revealed by itneverhappened, with each piece being completely different in sound and style to each other, should come as no surprise that a new idea would be countenanced.
Dandy is a synth-dance creator from the USA who will be releasing her début LP DandyLand in March.
From time to time I come across music I know that my co-founding partner of the original site would have particularly enjoyed, so a moment of pure indulgence for Julie who died on the 30th of September 2011 at the age of 39 – and whilst far from standard fare of this site, I found myself smiling wistfully reminded of Julie Norbury as her eyes would have twinkled through beaming visage at the sound of White And Black Keys by Dandy.
Hold your partner close and smooch with White And Black Keys – now – even one minute delay may be too late to ever do it again.
The English alt-electro creator Billy Pilgrim reveals new music from time to time.
Following up on the LP Get Human last year his latest track – If Hindsight Could Save A Life has, as perhaps to be anticipated give the eclectic range of the previous seven songs revealed, a very different feel in what is at its core a just under three minute techno number.
Although the guitar and piano having gone there remains his quizzical, wry lyrical content and it isn’t often that a Xylophone and steel drums are used as the lead instruments.
Evidently a talented instrumentalist and songwriter, who also knows his way around electronica – I look forward to hearing more by Billy Pilgrim.
The US dystopian-psychedelia band Astral Lite are working towards the release of the LP New World Vultures.
A style of music is delivered by Astral Lite which suitably sums up the ’10s with its sense of hallucinogenic induced ‘feel good’ set to a dark industrial barrenness. Not an easy combination of ideas to combine, yet, as the vast swathe of the 99% exist inside the delusion well worth attempting to encapsulate. The players are fine exponents of creating compositions out of contrasting concepts and delivering music that flows through the room which in equal measure expostulates of – broken societies and befuddled compliance.
From the forthcoming album, the title track, a dark and oppressive number that threads through five and a quarter minutes of sitar laden desolation.
Before hitting play – turn up the volume, boost the sub-woofer and turn down the lights to loose yourself in a depiction of the wasteland of insanity – that is 2017.
