Still Talk – Slow Sunday – Single Review

Still Talk is a new German rock project.

Still Talk

As I type there is only one song around – Slow Sunday – though am led to believe later today a second track will be revealed.

A soft brush of blurred guitar washes through the room to the accompaniment of a layering of active drum-kit with the bass giving the track its anchor whilst a mesmerising and highly capable vocal floats as though an otherworldly presence as it transfixes the listener.

On the basis of only one song, which lasts just a tad over three minutes, I am already looking forward with eager anticipation to the second LP, never mind the, as yet unplanned, début album and anticipate Still Talk is a name that will rapidly become familiar.

Making a welcome return to the site after a two year absence in Mirror, I’m Not A Band, are discovered in a richer tapestry of sound than when last featured, though of similar singular disposition enabling them to create a space of their own in a crowded market-sector and the listener who enjoys nature finds themselves enticed by the expressive keys as those who enjoy stemmed loops and are tempted by the gloss of electronic-overdub whilst alienating neither approaches to music as the natural spaces of absorbing vocals and keyboard are given the room to breath and work their spell as are the vocoder and gadgets.

Mirror – Single – I’m Not A Bandis available on iTunes.*

Kraków Loves Adana – American Boy – Audio

The German dark-electro duo Kraków Loves Adana will be releasing the LP Songs After The Blue on the 6th of April 2018.

Kraków Loves Adana

Kraków Loves Adana

The first track to surface from the album, which is itself was released available as a single on bandcamp on the 24th – American Boy – is a mesmeric blending of electronica, instrumentation and vocal which was inspired as a result of a feeling of frustration… frustration with a world of societal disconnect and a sense of powerlessness by not being able to instantly correct those inequities.

Rather than turning those emotions in to a howling lament, American Boy, is a brooding darkness which, as the hypnotic composition unfurls, slowly pervades the listeners mind.

Yeah But No – Sand – Audio

The German dark-electro duo Yeah But No release their début eponymous LP on the 10th of November.

Yeah But No

Yeah But No

One is minded of graphene on hitting play as their music has a sense of immense tensile strength whilst simultaneously being of lithe flexibility.

The sixth of the ten tracks on the album (available on bandcamp) Sand exemplifies these physical properties, which they transpose to sound, as the dreamy vocal stretches across the room within an undulating pulsing bass which rumbles the sub-woofer from its anchoring.

Hills Like White Elephants – Quarter To Five – Audio

On the 27th the German alt-rock septet Hills Like White Elephants release the LP Ages.

Each of the ten songs on the album (available on bandcamp) offers a different perspective of the varied crystal that is generically named ‘rock’ in compositions in which rather than using the multitude of players to add either volume or confusion, they are able to better articulate the complexities of their thought process, leaving the listener pleasurably supping their way through a bottle of Danziger Goldwasser.

The antepenultimate track is Quarter To Five.
