APES – Filter – artwork
In advance of the album – Filter – which was itself released as a single on the 10th is a track that highlights their signature sound of deeply packed bass-lines combined with a more roomy top layer giving APES the ability to deliver music which is rich in tapestry.
The first of the six tracks on the album (available on bandcamp) – Hanging Out With Imogen – can’t help but bring some lightness to the day as the retro combinations of synth and guitar generate a warming ambience to the room.
The Greek indie quartet Victory Collapse released the AA side single Younger Than Before / Already Gone on the 1st.
As part of the ongoing first decade celebrations of the Greek label Inner Ear with – this year on the 1st of each month a double A side single appearing by different artists (available on bandcamp) – Younger Than Before is a retro-weave of luxuriant guitar and floating vocal held aloft by punctilious bass and percussion.
The English indie quartet Shiners have surfaced with a new track from their forthcoming début EP.
Discovering a new side to the band (I Feel So) Blunt has a warming analogue retro feel as the combinations of keys and guitar drift between each other in a three and roughly a third minutes of a track that leaves the listener minded of Elvis Costello And The Attractions.
