The Scottish rock’n’roll quartet, Shambolics, released the single Chasing A Disaster on the 5th.
Transporting the listener from the Eastern coast of Scotland to the South Western coast of the USA in Chasing A Disaster; Shambolics take the listener to a Californian retro-surf ride.
A bleeding guitar slips out of the speakers to the accompaniment of a ferris-wheel percussion as the pulsing bass rotates through the ears while a laid-back vocal shimmers, akin to a brightly sunlight cloud floating high in the sky, leaving the listener pondering of time on the beach on a warm summers day.
There is nothing to do other than skim out to sea, to catch the coasters.
The Scottish experimental-rock quintet The Rotations put out a couple of tracks last week.
Extracting Gold From Fleas has a primordial beat that takes the listener on to a chanting fireside dance with the music seeping its way deep in to the marrow of the bones as it laments of a world turned sour by selfish greed.
The Scottish melancholic-rock quartet Motion released their eponymous EP on the 9th.
The air fills with a palpable sense of sadness as the music floats through the air on extended glittering delayed guitar notes with a double time percussion giving the feeling of two platelets moving at different speeds revolving around each other, which gives the songs their shadowy texture, through which bass fades in and out of earshot while a sorrowful echoing vocal rounds out the immersive sounds created by Motion.
The Scottish indie-rock quartet Lost In Stereo are due to release their début EP Famous First Words on the 29th of September.
Lost In Stereo
Other than hit play – there is nothing else Lost In Stereo ask the listener to undertake as they look after the rest in the just under three and a quarter minutes of Tear Out The Pages – from the forthcoming EP – that dances around the room like a steel ball spinning off rubber stretchers on a pinball table scurrying over flashing buttons and racking up points. Though if one is desirous – a double flick on the flipper buttons makes for a welcome repeat.
The Scottish dystopian-electronica duo Boobs of DOOM release the LP eXXpre$$ion. on the 11th of August.
Boobs of DOOM
The glitchy distortions of their compositions give the music a foreboding vision of the future through which a deep bass-line grinds as though destroying everything in its path while sparking arcs of electronics shatter leaving a sense of wanton destruction and industrial wasteland in their trail.
From the forthcoming album (available on bandcamp) the antepenultimate of the nine – tHE wOLF yOU fEED (diarchy).
