Less than twelve hours ago the latest track – The Waters – bubbled to the surface. An approaching four and a third minutes song that builds intensity and volume through its duration, prior to curling in to silence.

The listener is minded of Macbeth, Act IV, Scene I.  by William Shakespeare and the older source Scottish mythology of the Wayward Sisters as the stewing brew of The Waters hoves through the speakers in a cauldron of intoxicating thread of transfixing vocal, thrubbing bass, cloaked percussion and bleeding bows in which the listener becomes bewitched, to a state of enlightened topographagnosia.

Occasionally songs surface and the most recent is Live Your Life.

A just over four an a half minutes of stirring acoustic guitar, keys and percussion stomps through the room while the calm harmonised vocal adds a soft brush to Live Your Life giving the track an intriguing balance and the extended bridge which appears about half-way through the song and again at the close splits the composition in to distinctive  elements.

Helicopter In The Sky – For Today – Single Review

Helicopter In The Sky is a new alt-rock solo project from England.

The first two tracks surfaced towards the end of last month. For Today (available on bandcamp) has a progressive psychedelic tinge to it in which the listener gets the sense they are drifting in to Minkowski space as the just over five minutes composition unfurls in to the room.

A pacey tempo keeps For Today ever straying far from its tether and it is through the cleverly counter-intuitive gauzed and fuzzy soundscape that the spaciousness of the song is reflected.

One can’t help but to draw reference to the similarity of technique used by Hawkwind in the likes of Silver Machine, though far from feeling like a parody; Helicopter In The Sky is able to deliver, through a sole player, a fine piece of originality.

With players from Italy, England and France – Sonset is a gothic-rock trio.

Apologies to everyone for the delay in featuring CMBR, which has been having around in my in-box for many a day now.

Music by its very nature is not geo-politically bound and somewhat perspicaciously as I type today the 21st – bureaucrats in the UK are debating whether EU citizens already in the UK should be able to stay once the UK leaves the EU or whether people should merely be bargaining chips in negotiations, whilst Sonset provide a ready answer for all to comprehend – without a mix of nationalities there is only febrile isolationism.

There is only one song around by an outfit I look forward to hearing much more from in short-order as the blends of pulsating five string bass and percussion are swept with spiralling synths from which haunting vocal surfaces from the rafters.

Bruno Major – Just The Same – Single Review

The English alt-folk creator Bruno Major revealed the latest track – Just The Same – within the past couple of hours.

The material that Bruno writes has a sense of honesty that is palpable through the speakers which gives it the strong emotional tie to the audience. The earthy connectivity between performer and audience is reflected by the rapidity songs are launched to the wider world as, in the case of Just The Same, which was only written earlier this month and hasn’t sat in a folder to be revised, reworked and revisited for a year or two prior to seeing the light of day and for that I give Bruno Major credit.

The roughly three and a half minutes track has an almost gospel feel in its underlying spirituality, which the fact that I felt this was something you should hear as soon as possible, causes me great surprise, as I am not exactly a ‘spiritual folk’ – however – that is the power of music, as from unlikely sources come tracks that need to be on the playlist.
