Within the past couple of hours the French synthwave creator You Are Number Six released a new track.
You Are Number Six
Always revealing music wrapped in streams of synthesis which mind of an albatross calmly gliding thermal waves whilst traveling thousands of miles on few wing beats – in Midnight Blue, You Are Number Six releases a track full of mystery and tranquility.
It is the combinations of the melancholic electronics and voice of Théo Lefebvre which always make returning to the creations an absolute delight with their conceptual ambience that always warms the room with their countenance.
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.
The Spain based French and Argentinian alt-folk duo Le Garçon Rêvé released the LP Eat Your Make Up earlier in the month.
Le Garçon Rêvé
A roughly thirty seven minutes, nine track album, which quietly and confidently steps from the speakers as Le Garçon Rêvé deliver a soundtrack steeped in adroitly handled acoustic guitar.
My selection from Eat Your Make Up (available on bandcamp) is the fifth number, Pensées Étranglées, which features a viola allowing the duo to add considerable texture to the piece whilst equally containing the most prepossessing vocal performance on the release.
