Well established in the Scottish rock scene it is long past due date Fat Goth had a far greater international audience and with fortune their fourth album – Enorme! (available on bandcamp) – will go some way to address the anomaly.

The first of the eight tracks – Guestbook – merely requires the listener to be in headbanging mood to fully enjoy the exemplary rock ‘n’ roll.

Coast – That Old Atlantic Sky – Video

It has been over three years since the Scottish alt-rock band Coast last featured.

In the intervening period Coast have been busy, with, amongst other things a relocation from the South coast of England to the West coast of Scotland – they are also due to release the LP Windmills In The Sky later in the year.

There is a familiarity to the sound in the track, from the forthcoming album, That Old Atlantic Sky though there is also a deeper texturing within which Coast are able to extract a palpable intense emotional presence as the just over six minutes track floats from the speakers.

Delayed slightly in release from June of last year, the bakers dozen track Visions Of Symmetry is a welcome addition to the playlist. Echo Arcadia are able to deliver an intensity of sound which is lain across the listener akin to placing a warming blanket over a  guest who has drifted to sleep on an armchair.

Within the sixth of the compositions – Ghosts – there are unhurried gradually evolving themes which are played out through different instrumentation dropping in and out of earshot along with well judged shifts in pace and intensity and an emotive duality of voices, giving the song its hold over the listener in a gentle, yet comforting, embrace.

Visions Of Symmetry is available on Amazon.*

Terrestria – Collide – Single Review

Terrestria is a Scottish indie-rock quintet.

Today they released their début single Collide.

A just over four and a half minutes track that melts influences from indie-dance to soaring rock riffs, which they are able to turn around to an output which simultaneously has fleet-footed sparkle to it, driving pacing and spacious melodies, without the listener ever feeling lost in the sounds that swell around the room.

A well put together début – Collide builds its intensity through the composition, opening with jangling guitar and closing with roaring combinations, not an easy mix of ideas to bring together and to their credit Terrestia demonstrate that innate ability in a first offering which sets them a high bar to reach for future releases.

Currently actively pursuing gigs, the single can’t but help in that quest.

The Calm Fiasco - Just Don't Care Anymore

The Calm Fiasco

When initially introduced last year the The Fear did have a launch date of the 20th of April 2016 – the delay has enabled a further track to surface.

Just Don’t Care Anymore sweeps around the room in confident circles of bass / percussion combinations as guitar provides a slightly psychedelic tinge through which vocal rips in to the ears.
