The French fulminating-rock trio PLYMOUTH FURY released the EP テープ (Tape) on the 13th.
Fuzzy passages press against the inside of the speakers desperate to escape in to the room resulting a soundtrack that minds of a swarm of angry hornets buzzing around and the only thing to do with an angry swarm is to be entranced by the intricacy of the furious bodies and so it is with PLYMOUTH FURY. Prior to approaching the play button ensure everything is a loud as it is able and stand back for the assault.
These are a trio of highly capable musicians, as, whilst they are able to maintain within the four tracks on テープ (available on bandcamp) an intensity of pressure they are equally able to to deliver a mesmerising clarity of construct leaving the audience merely able to gawp in admiration as the inescapable flight of barbs pierce the skin. The penultimate track Melted being my pick of the release.
The French alt-rock trio Problematic Jam were introduced towards the end of 2015.
From the long-awaited LP Stereonucleose which is out next month, Hide Into The Woods, is of more dour countenance than much of their music previously featured with puddled percussion giving the track a menacing presence as it stomps through the room.
The French alt-rock quartet Vital Breath release the LP Angels Of Light on the 15th of September.

From the forthcoming album The Trust blends their influences of metal and progressive rock in to a weaving ride in which the listener is left to allow their mind to run free with flowing guitars balanced by the persistence of the taut drum-kit.
The slightly retrospective sounds of psychedelia melt inside lofi production as the vocal which seeps through voile drifts through the room resulting in an achingly attractive sound that captures the listeners attention with its fragile wisps of lace.
The LP Stereonucleose will be released by the French alt-rock trio Problematic Jam on the 27th of October.
From the forthcoming album Bankism Über Alles has a very different sound to music of theirs previously featured. The acoustic drone of the four and a half minutes track is more than appropriate for the nature of the song which reflects on the reality of the world of socio-capitalism with workers grinding away their lives in a monotony of ‘doing the right thing’.
