Floating around the room on extended delayed fuzz Marlinspike deliver music that hangs around on the air, like the scent of patchouli oil, long after the notes have drifted to silence. The combinations of garage rock blended with a mushroom tea infusion gives the material a slightly psychedelic impression without the listener feeling as though they are set to see dragons walking on the ceiling, rather be left in a relaxing slightly muzzy-headedness.

My selection from the five track EP (available on bandcamp) is the penultimate (and atypical of the release with its jogging beat, particularly given the text above) Into The Deep.

Opening the seven track release (available on bandcamp) is the just over six and a half minutes of  Welcome to Mendacity – a combination of guitar and multilayered electronica giving the composition a graininess in which there develops an ever growing sense of unremitting and unending air of industrial oppression.

H1987 – CODY – Single Review

H1987 is a prolific French echo-wave creator.



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.

A couple of years since last featured – ECNEPHIAS have a noticeably sharper focus and intent resulting in material that is more focused allowing them to use their flamboyance to add gravity to the output rather than, as was the case previously, where the flair provided theatrical expression.

The antepenultimate of the nine tracks is Quimbanda.

The Sad Wonder of the Sun – Ecnephias is available on iTunes.*

L-space – Space Junk – Single Review

The Scottish dream-wave outfit L-space released the single Space Junk on the 17th.

L-Space - Space Junk


The song is cleverly named and written as the dreamy synths are interspersed with distorted interference giving Space Junk a grainy perspective, that reflects both of nature of outer-space with the myriad of comets and showers of rock fragments, as well within the earths pull the many abandoned satellites drifting around earth yet, lyrically described, through the seeming clutter there is an unfathomable beauty and spaciousness that lays therein with the winding guitar calmly unravelling itself through the just over four minutes track evolving from an almost unheard addendum to a clear focus of energy.

Space Junk – L-Space is available on iTunes.*
