CNGRTS

Counterintuitively given the song title Sedative, the first track to surface from the forthcoming release, is a more zingy soundtrack than music of theirs previously featured with sparkling guitar laid against sprightly tempo although the vocal maintains their signature drifting melancholia.

Sedative – Single – Cngrts is available on iTunes.*

Trains On Fire – No Alert – Audio

Trains On Fire is a dark-synth duo from Germany.

Trains On Fire

There is an inbuilt beauty to the darkly hewn tapestry that is Trains On Fire as the dank nature of the compositions rather than chilling the spine – sense of a come-hither promise of velvet blind-fold and silk tied limbs in which the listener is invited to enter a gothic bedchamber.

Most recently released was the nine track LP, The Wheel, which came out at the tail end of last month (available on bandcamp) – a roughly forty minutes album which is best heard in company of another whilst intertwining torso.

My selection being the penultimate –  No Alert.

The roughly forty two minutes, nine track, album (available on bandcamp) is replete with lengthy compositions, yet none outstay their welcome as Hypertonus fill every nook and cranny with intriguing ideas that carry along the listener in their wake with no extended solo sections, giving the complete release a complexity that the listener can happily go over and re-explore.

There is a maths-rock feel to much of the output which is soothed by a counter-balancing organic flow to the tracks and an LP well worth taking time to discover.

My selection from Tidal Wave is the sixth – H​.​E​.​D​.​E​.​R​.​A. .

Thieves Like Us – Broken Mirror – Video

The German electro-indie quartet Thieves Like Us will be releasing their eponymous LP on the 27th.

Thieves Like Us - eponymous release - physical formats

Thieves Like Us – eponymous release – physical formats

A nine track album of eddies and flows reflecting of the world in which they find themselves submerged.

Rather than flailing and ultimately drowning in the quicksand of 21st Century societal vapours Thieves Like Us push up their legs and float on the morass that is the reality of the world around although through the roughly thirty six minutes release there is no deflecting from the melancholia that steeps the theme the listener is equally afforded an extended arm to grab hold of and join in with a rescue attempt for the 99%.

The sixth track is Broken Mirror.

Radioactive Star, the first of the ten tracks on the album is a foreboding cloud of smoke which drifts through the room leaving the listener surrounded by a feeling of melancholia from which they don’t wish to escape and a fine introduction to the ensuing roughly thirty six minutes of the following nine compositions.
