Earlier this month they released their début EP Haunted, which is available on bandcamp, a roughly quarter of an hour release that fills the listener with thoughts of the summer of love with the drifting combinations of guitar and synth and hazy vocal that takes the edge off the day leaving the mind in a free-flowing state of relaxation from which it is no hurry to escape.

The third of the four tracks is Taking You Down.

Maps And Plans

Thumping out of the speakers like a prize-fighter launching an assault Maps And Plans make more than a slight nod to influences to mod in music that is tightly held together with a bursting energy that shakes the foundations, though they are equally adept at slowing down the pace to expose a softer underbelly

From the four track EP (available on bandcamp) the second A Ghost Between Us.

Catholic Action – Propaganda – Audio

The Scottish alt-rock Catholic Action released the two track single Propaganda on the 5th.

Catholic Action

Catholic Action

A release with two distinctively different tracks, the B side – Sunday Driver, being a slowly-paced four and two thirds minutes southern-blues piece with the title track taking a faster tempo.

Propaganda – lasting less than two minutes is a track that skips through the room on breezy synth / guitar combinations with percussion pelting at a fair old tilt as the chanting vocal fades in and out of earshot.

L-space – Space Junk – Single Review

The Scottish dream-wave outfit L-space released the single Space Junk on the 17th.

L-Space - Space Junk

L-Space

The song is cleverly named and written as the dreamy synths are interspersed with distorted interference giving Space Junk a grainy perspective, that reflects both of nature of outer-space with the myriad of comets and showers of rock fragments, as well within the earths pull the many abandoned satellites drifting around earth yet, lyrically described, through the seeming clutter there is an unfathomable beauty and spaciousness that lays therein with the winding guitar calmly unravelling itself through the just over four minutes track evolving from an almost unheard addendum to a clear focus of energy.

Mitchell Museum

Making a welcome return after a six year gap.

Delivering complex structures through instrumentation and synth Mitchell Museum provide the listener with multi-layered compositions in which to loose sense of time – an album well worth grabbing hold of once it becomes available whilst hoping that it will be prior 2023 that they resurface.

My selection from the eleven track LP (available on bandcamp) is the antepenultimate Knifeback.
