From the forthcoming album – Alien – is a roughly three and a half minutes journey of experimentation that demonstrates the combinations of electronics, reed and brass wind instrumentation and drum-kit that forms the structures for their intriguing compositions.
The LP is being released though Denovali (be aware music starts immediately) whose related musicians quite regularly feature.
Apologies to one and all, this has been sitting around in my email in-box for a little while now.
Their latest release Miss Eden is a three and five sixths of a minutes long track of hypno-trance that revolves through the cortex in a transfixing melting loop which finds its way in to the nervous system and finds the listener moving shoulders and upper torso with the dreamscape and most certainly a track that could stand an extended 12″ version.
With a couple of top-notch tracks behind them Stellarion is a name I would anticipate you will be hearing much more of over the summer not only via the hippest venues and radio stations but also the wider spaces too.
The French alt-rock trio Problematic Jam are finalising the precise release date for the LP Stereonucleose.

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.
Bir-Hakeim is a brand new Gauloises-chanson duo from France.
Revealed within the past twenty four hours is their début track – Vivre Ensemble – which has surfaced prior to their fist gig which will be on the 17th of February.
There is a delightful vocal in the tradition of the chanson smokiness of the likes of Brel, Souchon, Birkin, etc which glides from the speakers, to which Bir-Hakeim add an intoxicating blend of 21st Century electronics.
