From time to time I come across music I know that my co-founding partner of the original site would have particularly enjoyed, so a moment of pure indulgence for Julie who died on the 30th of September 2011 at the age of 39 –  and whilst far from standard fare of this site, I found myself smiling wistfully reminded of Julie Norbury as her eyes would have twinkled through beaming visage at the sound of White And Black Keys by Dandy.

Hold your partner close and smooch with White And Black Keys – now – even one minute delay may be too late to ever do it again.

New Year Ninety 2017 – 20 to 11

Now reaching the thick end of the New Year Ninety 2017 chart –  in to the top twenty countdown from 20 to 11.

I would like to make a special reference to my co-founding partner – Julie Norbury –  of the original site in the last decade – who died in 2011 – as always my inspiration for keeping writing music reviews.

énée

With material stretching back four years sadly énée have always remained less well exposed than deserved. Threading back through the catalogue of songs there is a consistency of darkness and flashing torches which has always featured through their music which for reasons I am unable to fathom have not gained greater traction.




énée are able to put together tracks which like frolicking Joey’s have a kick to them that becomes more ferocious as they grow into Kangaroos and the trio are able to invest within their material both soft toed playfulness and more considered clawing as acoustic guitar lays surrounded by electric six string jabbing and four string punching percussion whilst an imperious synth surrounds the vocal in ethereal cloak.

With an early five track eponymous EP, before growing in formation, the follow up release, the ten track album Tricky World is scheduled for release on the 13th and with justice will gain énée the greater visibility deserved.

While any of the tracks would have been a suitable introduction to their music, I am minded of my founding partner Julie Norbury, now sadly dead this past approaching half-decade, a song which as a private joke between the two of us I know would have had her smiling broadly. So apologies for the self-indulgence, but may thanks to énée for raising a whimsical smile.
