The ten track album (available on bandcamp) is built out of fragile architectures which captivate for their vulnerability and a just under half an hour release which fills the mind with an achingly irresistible melancholia.
The Danish alliterative-EDM creator Alia Fresco releases her eponymous EP on the 17th.
A four track, roughly fourteen minute, extended play that scatters shards of breaking crystal through the room leaving the listener transfixed by the rainbow colours of spectra laser induced hallucinogènes which travel through the synapses.
Alia Fresco is able to comport angular arithmetic synthetics with a translucent shimmer in which the listener becomes transmogrified by the very presence of the didactic discombobulations and leaving them hanging on the coat-hooks of the release.
My selection is the penultimate track – Let You Go.
The Danish rocker Mike Tramp will be releasing the LP Maybe Tomorrow on the 24th of February.
Mike Tramp – Maybe Tomorrow – artwork
It has been more than two and a half years since Mike Tramp last featured, yet unsurprisingly there is a noticeable thread of connection which is borne from the distinctive roots in American-rock. A style of music which requires no change in construct to deliver a classic sound and why it has, as a genre, stood the test of time.
Maybe Tomorrow is available for pre-order as Vinyl or CD from Target and from the release – Coming Home.
The first track to surface – Your Mind’s Like The Earth – makes no pretence of its derivations and whilst the listener is easily transposed to the Madchester scene – in the just over three minutes of the track the audience discerns a freshness and vitality behind the listless vocal and glazed staring eyes.
Word arrives of the début EP being set for April and this, by the sound of the one piece around, will be something to put on the playlist for weekend party benders.
