The Greek rock band Deaf Radio released the LP Alarm on the 9th.
A nine track album (available on bandcamp) which threads through high energy numbers to slower paced pieces – at which ever tempo the songs are delivered the listener has the sense of a pent-up ball of energy rolling around the room.
The ever pressurising bass features strongly through Alarm with percussion keeping the material tightly compressed from which guitar is only ever given a short leash to stray while vocal slides in and out of earshot.
The Cretan electro-folk project of Sofia Sarri releases the début LP Euphoria in January.
From the forthcoming album – Still Universe is a slowly unfurling track that combines traditional instrumentation, including the Cretan Lyra, with electronics, modern instruments and vocal to deliver almost seven minutes of immersive sound in which the listener looses track of time and situation.
The Greek alt-rock creator The Man From Managra releases the LP Half A Century Sun on the 25th of January.
The Man From Managra
Within the past few hours the first track from the album appeared – You Can Keep Υour Winters. An appositely entitled track as the almost three and a quarter minute composition adds a warmth to the room with a duo of voices (with Blaine L. Reininger joining Coti K), subtly textured synths and acoustic guitar spread their glowing embers.
