The latest track to surface Land Of The Free is of similar vein with a blurry heavy-metal track screaming through the room whilst vocal sears against the socio-political constructs that micro-manage the 99% to the satisfaction of a geo-political agenda.
The English drone project The Telescopes released the EP As Light Return yesterday.
The opening track on the EP (available on bandcamp) – You Can’t Reach What You Hunger – despite lasting less that four minutes, leaves the listener feeling they have left time and space as the submerged fuzzy construct slowly drifts through the room in distorted and buried waves of sound.
The English analogue-weave project MarcusMIDI releases the three track single Kingdom Of The Spiders on the 17th.
Combining 8-bit electronica with instrumentation MarcusMIDI unifies the soundtrack to deliver music which has a retrospective feel with a modernist temper allowing the listener to escape in to nostalgia without feeling it is all a distant memory.
Each song on the release offers a slightly different perspective with the opener and title track being of more futuristic landscape and the closer – 1992 – distinctly new-romantics 80’s era with the middle track The Bunker conjoining the two ideas – therefore – my pick of the release.
The English agit-electro creator Sir Robert Orange Peel released the EP Plates Of Meat on the 1st.
Sir Robert Orange Peel
A five track release (available on bandcamp) that passes acerbic scorn on the Establishment, delivered with a deadpan humour and which is made more forceful by the glitch electronics laid against the pomposity of sampled speeches by various members of the State.
Within the past handful of hours the English melancholic-folk creator MagicHour released the single Final Encore.
Palling the room in palpable dark cloak which discovers the listener reaching for handkerchief to wipe the eyes there is an intrinsic beauty surrounding Final Encore (available on bandcamp) and one is minded to contemplate ‘this would be perfect for my own funeral’.
Often in the saddest moments of music one discovers the most beguiling compositions and through the combinations of Spanish Guitar and six stringer the audience finds a rapture in which there is only a desire that Final Encore last longers than the just under four and three quarter minutes it does.
