The twenty three track album (available on bandcamp) is of a different feel to when Lunar Lemur previously feature with its quiet expansive fusions of bells and echoing synth.

Each track being simple named Gate and the number it is on the LP – this being Gate 19.

The Furr – Folly – Audio

The Furr is a garage-blues project from Canada.

The Furr

Having spent time attempting to congeal with other musicians and not getting the desired connectivity, in the past few months, akin to a warm bottle of ale having been shaken, the lid flew off the bottleneck resulting in a solo artist revealing a slew of material, both as singles and albums, which hurtles through the speakers in frothing frustration with the most recent reveal being the seven track LP Dr Lucifer & The Magic Factory (available on bandcamp).

The conjoining of structured chords and grazing knuckles enables The Furr to deliver music of bruising ferocity which leave the listener with blue swellings around the eyes.

From the album Dr Lucifer & The Magic Factory the penultimate track is Folly.

A rich and rightfully confident vocal is surrounded by acoustic melodies, to the accompaniment of trotting percussion, giving the songs both a depth of texturing as well as momentum that was most recently captured in the seven track LP Signal Hill (available on bandcamp).

Whilst my selection from the release is the southern-blues infused second song Boy – it should not be taken as typical of the LP as the almost half-an hour album is a mix of material that includes influences of RnB, soul fusion and folk-ballad.

Area Resident – Show No One – Audio

The Canadian alt-rock project of Doug HempsteadArea Resident – released the LP Delano on the 10th.

Pulling in reference points across the Atlantic ocean to the East and also South of the border – Area Resident one moment takes the listener to southern-slide blues, the next to pub-rock yet never leaving the listener locked in the Hudson Strait by its inclusive temperament.

There is some inevitability to the global nature of the compositions that the scathing thought process of the fourth of the ten tracks on Delano (available on bandcamp) – Show No One – would gain my particular attention.

An album (available on bandcamp) which has a dreamy spire of slide guitar that like a well ripened Epoisses curtains the room in a richness that takes over the senses in to which the listener just wants to be enwrapped though that isn’t the highlight… that is the mesmerising vocal… making the title track and middle of the eight which spotlights the singing, my pick of the release.
