San Jua is a new English / Swedish dream-wave duo.
The first and thus far only track to surface – Laid To Waste stills the listener with its ethereal presence as a ghostly vocal gently floats behind a screen of interlaced synths and instrumentation.
A just over three minutes début track which is in no hurry to reveal its secrets and the audience finds themselves enwrapped within the calmness of delivery, foretelling only, that San Jua is a duo to keep an ear out for when new material is made available and I certainly look forward to hearing more.

SEE TAI is a dream-wave creator from the USA.
Within the past four hours the newest track Glass Canyon surfaced.
Just under four minutes of creamy luxury drifts around the room as instrumentation, synthetics and vocal blend one in to the other. Appropriately for today, a song which that merely asks the listener to hold a partner closely and slowly glide in unified steps of tender embrace.

The Romantic Manifesto from London in England is the dream-wave quartet of Phineas Cheshire (Vocals / Guitar), Nobutaka Iizuka (Guitar), John Wallis (Bass) and Timur Djahit (Drums).
The Romantic Manifesto
Like an ambient light The Romantic Manifesto add a depth to the ambience as the gossamer thread of sound gently builds its web around the room. The compositions build wave upon wave of luxuriant texture that take over the synapse pulses and the mind and body gently drift into semi-consciousness.
The Romantic Manifesto build their tracks from a percussion and bass which pulse as though in waves of superposition which creates the spinneret from which the interlocking guitars fold the chords to thread the silk, as the vocal calmly orchestrates the delicate fluxes of sound.
The quartet deliver music which is best taken in large quaffs to allow the mystical backdrop to take shape in the mind and if you allow yourself that space you will find The Romantic Manifesto has much to add to the world of music.
As always I find much to enjoy in listening to music that takes as a point of principal a point of difference and The Romantic Manifesto battle headlong with a world demanding of instant gratification and to my mind prove their purpose with considerable credit.
I recommend taking an hour or so out of your day to take time with the quartet and failing that the forty six minutes to listen to their latest LP – A Kind Of Promise which came out at the beginning of the month.
A Kind of Promise – The Romantic Manifesto is available on iTunes.*

Tirman Kid from Buenos Aires in Argentina is the dream-wave quartet of Martin Dick (Vocals / Guitar), Agustin Slapak (Guitar / Synth), Manuel Gvirtz (Drums) and Matias Oyamburu (Bass).
Layer upon layer of drifting smoke immerse the room as Tirman Kid feed the music into the room. The shimmering guitars are accompanied by synths which allow the phrases to hang in the air, whilst a gauzed vocal echoes remembrances of instrumentation drifted past as percussion settles on hi-hat and ride giving the out-put a fuzziness to which the bass lays quietly in the back-ground grabbing attention from time to time as it sweeps up the stray remainders of the sounds.
The laconic elongated notes give Tirman Kid a munificence which beguiles the listener, whilst the lyric espouses of bitter regrets and the fusion of the two gives the quartet a fascination that holds the ear.
The music itself transcends geo-political boundaries and could have appeared from anywhere in the world at any time since the ’60s with its hazy waves of sound and for that very inclusiveness I recommend you taking a few moments to – kick off your shoes and drift in the sounds.

Desert Ships from London in England is the dream-wave trio of Mikey (Vocals / Guitar), Daniel (Bass / Vocals), and Claude ( Drums / Vocals).
Desert Ships – Skyliner – artwork
Like the shroud of a sunlit misty breaking dawn dew, the sounds of Desert Ships invoke of out-of focus shadows as the reverb and echo athwart the music whilst the psychedelic shoegaze oozes of atrabilious reflections giving the out-put an eerily haunting texture. The trio are able to make eight minute tracks a mesmeric dreamscape and even in shorter pieces running around the four minutes mark they allow themselves plenty of space in the calmly paced compositions to allow the mind to thread through entrancing imagery.
Desert Ships is not to be taken on a strenuous work-out in the gym, rather to be savoured in languorous mood where the sounds will let the mind drift in and out of flights of fancy.
Formed a couple of years ago Desert Ships have been able to carve themselves a space of difference and are unafraid and more importantly have the innate ability to extend their tracks to tell their story, rather than cutting to meet the demand or brevity, without loosing the connection with the listener.
Those who know the trio already will find the five track EP – Skyliner, comes out on the 10th November a more atmospheric and intense sound than previous material. The release, which runs to twenty six minutes, is sufficiently engaging to hit replay immediately to further wallow in the loops and bends of the release.
As per usual, I have managed to select a track from the release and a demo version at that – the closer – Ausgang, which isn’t quite like the rest, as this is completely without vocal and you will have noticed that there are three voices listed in the introduction and these do, in the normal course of events, blend into intoxicating harmonies
