Identitet is the melancholic-weave project of Marin Milardović from Croatia.
It is rarely that a natural bass vocalist raises their head in the world of independent music. When they do, it is something that is to be cherished and in his LP I which came out earlier on in the month Marin uses his voice wisely; as it cloaks the room in resonating vibrations which echo from wall to wall, surrounding the brooding undertow of instrumentation. Whilst instrumentation is far from being incidental as it provides the context, it does seem a distant secondary focus for the listener.
Not material to listen to on an MP3 playback device as the granularity and delicacy of the compositions are lost in audio compression.
From the album (available on bandcamp), by way of an introduction to a vocalist and musician of highest order – Better Than Me.
Once again, the project is so new, I am unable to offer a website or social media page link to discover more.

Cousin Moon is a dreamy-rock quintet from the USA.
Turn down the lights and make yourself comfortable prior to hitting play as Cousin Moon deliver their embrocating weaves of textures which float around the room with beguiling suppleness.
The quintet have a plethora of instrumentation, synthesis and vocalists to draw to the fore, yet never overload the listener. Wind instruments, bowed strings, electronics, acoustic and electric guitars, drum pads, natural percussion, keys and much more are all given appropriate run-out in their output – yet never anything out of place as Cousin Moon envelop the listener in softly brushed webs.
Cousin Moon released their eponymous LP earlier this month and from the seventeen track approximately three quarters of an hour album (available on bandcamp) – Eaten By An Eagle In August.

The French alt-rock trio Problematic Jam are finalising the precise release date for the LP Stereonucleose.
Problematic Jam – Stereonucleose – artwork
Previously set for release last month; the delay of the album, now due for the second quarter of this year, has allowed a further track to surface – Crackdowns & Breakups.
Just over five minutes of compacted instrumentation and meandering vocal construct that either, as is always is the case, immediately has the listener running out of the room as though on fire or dwell in fascinated silence and – quite evidently the fact that I am positing you should spend time in their company immediately informs you that I sit firmly rooted in the latter camp.

AM Exchange is an indie-light project from the USA.
With a soundtrack that gently embrocates in to the eardrums the material would ordinarily be easy to pass-by with scant notice as it is fashioned to slot neatly in to radio playlists, barring for the fact there is an underlying burr of instrumentation which draws closer attention.
The latest reveal (available on bandcamp) is I Can’t Help Myself – I would suggest – a fair use of its one second under four minutes running time.

The ambient-EDM project of Dan Meldrum – Prangman from England released the four track EP Chambers on the 15th.
Perhaps it is due to the fact that I wrote this article on Friday late morning on the 10th that the soft textures of sound – featuring vocals by Lyndsey Murray that this made sense, though given it is also Friday – albeit a week later that this is being published – it may also make perfect sense too as a means to wind down in to the weekend.
Chambers is available from NexGen Music.
