Recent Passings – I Write About The Dead – Audio

Recent Passings is the new-wave project of Pat Tintle from the USA.

Recent Passings

As you, if you are a regular reader will know, bass strings stretching far below the fret-board always capture my attention as they thump around the room and Recent Passings  blow sublimely around the room.

One can’t help but think of early CBGBs on hitting play as the laid-back pacing, though distinctly firebrand of fulminating frustration pulses through the speakers as combinations of drums and instrumentation percussion claw their way out of the speakers akin to a malcontented sprite, whilst the flatness of vocal captures the essence of the backdrop, leaving the listener saddened by the fact there are not more than three tracks to hear (available on bandcamp) and I, for one, certainly hope to hear more in short order.

By means of an introduction – I Write About The Dead.

Энеона Виток (Eneona Vitok) – Регенерация (Regeneration) – Audio

The Russian lo-fi creator Энеона Виток (Eneona Vitok) released the LP Маршрут построен (Route Calculated) on the 13th.

There is a certain joy to communicating with musicians around the globe as things can be learnt – Маршрут построен is the common phrase on Russian Satnav devices when the route for a journey has been calculated, but rather than learning about Russian SatNav systems you probably opened this post to learn more about the music…

Маршрут построен is an approximately twenty four minutes eight track LP (available via Pomogite Community on bandcamp for either the digital version or the ten track limited run cassette version) – that flows through a psychedelic journey of compositions that hold a fascinating grip on the listener. A haunting soft vocal sweeps through tracks of fuzzy psychotropic keyboard, slippery percussion and whirling guitar.

My selection from the release is the sixth Регенерация (Regeneration), though to not dwell in the full release is to do yourself a disservice.

Blanco White – El Búho – Audio

The English world-folk project of Josh Edward known as Blanco White will be releasing the EP Colder Heavens on the 31st of March.

Within the past five hours the second of the four tracks on the EP – El Búho – was given light of day.

Strongly influenced by his time in both Spain and Bolivia El Búho resonates of twelve string guitar technique and tempo, giving the composition a patina of dance-step while the veiled vocal provides a powerful emotive depth to the song, which through its approaching four minute duration finds the listener both clapping in time and drifting in to hypnotic trance.


Colder Heavens is available on Amazon.*

SURGE – Shame – Audio

It was back in 2015 that the English indie-rock quartet SURGE last featured.

As so often is the case in life symmetrical evolutions surface in clusters and not for the first time within the past few articles I head back to a band who have had a few years gap in coverage.

On the 5th of March SURGE will be making available the single Shame – a song which those of longer legs on the site will not find dissimilar from previously featured, though with a stronger and tighter message that more forcefully bursts its way across the room.

Destroy Boys – Methatonin – Audio

The US new wave trio Destroy Boys released the AA side single Methatonin​/​Gold Medal earlier in the month.

I am sure there is a reason I didn’t catch their earliest material though it is a reason I fail to recall.

With some delight I am able to correct that error with the Metathonin (available on bandcamp) and introduce a trio I aim to feature again in short order.
