LIGHT / Henry Lloyd Wilson – an eight track album that is available on bandcamp which distils dark shrouding shadows through the room – though rather than reaching for a noose the listener finds themselves enraptured by the lugubrious soundtrack that wraps around the ears as it undergoes sublimation.
The opening song is This Is How It Feels.

Kabreet known locally as كبريت (Matchsticks) is a newly formed rock band from Syria.
With one track to hear – ضوّ (Light) is a track that has a sense of progressive rock with a subtle synth as backdrop whilst retaining punchy edginess to it as highlighted by bass and percussion while the guitar provides a bluesy blouse to the material rounded off by vocal which resonates of tradition. Enabling Kabreet to deliver a track that has a global reach and a welcome insight into their determination to get on with being creative and doing what they enjoy despite the ensuing chaos around them.
