Their newest track – Hollow – is a barrage of sound that pulverises the ears in a roughly three and three quarters minutes of lamentation of a world spinning out of control on an ever more erratic axis.
The US dystopian-psychedelia band Astral Lite are working towards the release of the LP New World Vultures.
A style of music is delivered by Astral Lite which suitably sums up the ’10s with its sense of hallucinogenic induced ‘feel good’ set to a dark industrial barrenness. Not an easy combination of ideas to combine, yet, as the vast swathe of the 99% exist inside the delusion well worth attempting to encapsulate. The players are fine exponents of creating compositions out of contrasting concepts and delivering music that flows through the room which in equal measure expostulates of – broken societies and befuddled compliance.
From the forthcoming album, the title track, a dark and oppressive number that threads through five and a quarter minutes of sitar laden desolation.
Before hitting play – turn up the volume, boost the sub-woofer and turn down the lights to loose yourself in a depiction of the wasteland of insanity – that is 2017.
The US alt-rock quartet Daddy Lion are due to release the LP learn to have nothing and you will have everything later this year.

In advance of the release of what will be their début album as a full line up – Maslow (available on bandcamp) surfaced earlier in the month.
A well measured composition that introduces guest cello, by Amy Cuthbertson, which is able to give the track, despite its subtlety, an organic vibrancy whilst analogue synthetics tease the ears from which a percussion sets along the furrow of travel with guitar spilling aside the soil as vocal is given space to hover from the corners of the room before being scooped up by the bass which ensures all the elements are in alignment.
While Daddy Lion is not a band that you will hear at the front of protest marches the music is rooted in social conscience, providing a more philosophical expostulation to the after event conversations, yet, no less intrinsic for its contribution.
The US arithmetical rock outfit The Fatty Acids are set to release the LP Dogs Of Entertainment on the 19th of February.

In advance of the full album a few tracks have surfaced and In Your House took my attention – which will be the penultimate on the ten track LP (available through Gloss Records) – a song of the principles of Archimedes and finding the listener also thinking they have a far better comprehension of buoyancy and displacement.
