The US melancholic-folk creator Todd Kessler releases the single Old Fashioned Way tomorrow, within the past few minutes this has become available to share.
A brooding track that fills the room with a dour countenance yet which, like a funeral ceremony despite the tears, fills the listener with a feeling of invigoration by the very nature of its dark clouds as the audience take succour from the inward celebration of what has been and the revelations of what may be to come.
Once again a track which requires space to breathe through as full speaker set-up, though on this occasion not on full volume, allowing the heavy-hearted vocal and lugubrious guitar to evaporate as the sounds gently echo from the walls filling the mind with future purpose.
The US electro-folk project Pattern released the single Dissonance on the 20th.
Underpinning the sorrowful narrative of relationship break down through missed opportunities of conversation threads a munificence of synth and guitar which percolates through the room like a wavering candle lighting the way out of a tunnel towards a brighter future and more meaningful mutual appreciation – in a tad under three and a quarter minutes release which is available on bandcamp.
The US sultry-wave creator Robyn Cage is due to release the LP Slow The Devil later in the year.

The haunting title track steals its way in to the bone marrow and the listeners find themselves engrossed in the composition, loosing all sense of the outside world as the magnetic vocal, surrounded by hypnotic electronica, floats through the room asking for people to have more consideration of others rather than snapping to instant volatile reaction.
