With a plenitude of thoughts to convert to acoustics H1987 regularly puts out single tracks and complete collections. The most recent of which, at least at the time I write this article on the 21st, being the track CODY that surfaced on the 20th.
Alongside all the other works this only makes sense with a multilayered full speaker system else lost completely to the audience. Akin to a bat skimming around by echolocation it is the radar of closing displacement that affords the music its impressive stance as the seeming collision course of refracted soundwaves glides unerringly between one another like graphite sheering effortlessly from a 9B pencil.
The French agit-folk project Somehow recently released the LP Hidden Memories.
A just under forty minutes, nine track, album (available on bandcamp) that wreaths the room in saddened reflective with compositions chivving the listener to take a look at the wider world and try to make it better rather than bemoan their own insular existence.
The melancholic lead vocal that holds the attention minds of Ian Curtis and Peter Murphy, whilst a distinctly Gallic soundtrack lays in supporting role.
Hidden Memories is most certainly an LP to add to the collection and by way of an introduction, the middle track, While The Days Go By.
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.
