Earlier this month the début LP Fire Brick was released.

A six track release of introspective electronica cloaking an evocative and distinctive voice which finds the listener wrapping themselves in a comforting counterpane as the melancholic compositions reflect on the harsh barbs of life, yet, despite the sadness the audience finds a sense of catharsis and is a release to bring out when life seems a tad glum.

My pick of the six on the album being the trumpet infused third – Sucked Me Dry.

Victory Lap – The Afterlife – Single Review

Victory Lap is the indie-dance project of Alex Badham from Australia.

With considerable experience as both a musician and music video director, the début single of the solo project – The Afterlife ( which came out on the 23rd and available on bandcamp) – evidences of a songwriter and arranger who knows one end of a song from the other.

Multilayered instrumentation, synth and percussion are moulded in to exotic shapes and – rather than becoming overly complex – fold themselves around the vocal – giving the listener a sound in which they step on to the dance-floor and sway with the funky beat, or lean back and allow the dreamy washes to flush through the mind.

Mickey – SEETHE – Single Review

The Australian funk-rock project Mickey released the single SEETHE on the 6th.

A track that, like a virulent virus, vaccinates the veins as it slips in to the room.

Prefacing the journey of SEETHE opening with the sound of a record player winding up to full speed as through the three and almost half a minutes of the track the pace steps up incrementally, with the listener joining with a slow-step glide over the dancefloor and ending up rattling round the room, as though a whirling dervish, prior to finally collapsing in exhaustion.

Mickey demonstrates through the track an innate skill and ability in songwriting and delivery as although the song not only changes pace it also switches bar timing and chord structure, all without the listener ever being jarred as it occurs, rather – like melting butter – the transitions are seamless.

Madi Leeds – Water to Me – Video

The Australian alt-folk creator Madi Leeds released the EP Spinning on the 10th.

Don’t go anywhere near the play button before finding some dayglo socks and equally garish brothel creepers and as you make your way back to the turntable – ensure you have left space behind you to stretch the limbs and sway with the breeze.

A five track album of sonorous landscape which wends its way through easy glide to full on stomp. The fulcrum around which everything revolves is the alluring vocal which akin to a powerful magnet draws the listener to its unseen, yet, irresistible gravitational force.

The closer – Water To Me – is the bounciest track – rockabilly too and therefore necessarily my pick of the release.

Invisible Dears – If You Can – Audio

On the 24th of September the Scotland based Australian alt-folk project Invisible Dears released the eponymous EP.

Just as the listener is thinking they are settled in to the landscape of luxuriant dayglo comforters the tempo changes to a cèilidh in which to step in gleeful abandon. None more so pronounced than the opening track of the five on the EP, available on bandcamp, If You Can and necessarily why it is my pick of the release.
