In an homage to the one hundred and twenty five year old amusement park in Wisconsin, at which Elvis Presley purportedly found enjoyment – hence the retro-feel of the compositions, with tracks named after rides.

The penultimate of the six songs – Bumper Cars leaves the listener happily stepping around the room.

Montufar – Ghosts – Single Review

Montufar is a relatively new gazewave project from the USA.

Centred around Victor Montufar with additional instrumentation added as and where needed. With only a couple of tracks around, I look forward to hearing more. The most recent reveal being Ghosts, that was released on the 21st (available on bandcamp).

There is a palpable sadness that drifts across the room as the combinations of synths, piano and guitar, unhurriedly, weave around each other in a graceful flow of hazy texturing whilst the dual vocals provides Ghosts with its haunting presence as the percussion provides an unexpected, though delicious, pulse to the composition.

Sometimes working alone, other-times in collaboration with others, the latest track to surface which came out on the 21st – Homicide – was produced by Kush2x.

An acoustic and harp led track that fascinates from the outset with the unexpected instrumentation and melody that flows through a song.

Most recently to surface – the track The Metaphysic Unseen, which neatly sidesteps all preconceptions of the genre and also features a music project longer stay readers will recall – The Sexbots – in a track that has an exploratory air to it, leaving the listener delighted they have found yet another iteration of urban rap that breaks the normality.
