Establishing themselves on the live circuit, occasionally music surfaces for those of us who haven’t seem them live to wrap out ears around, the latest being, BRENDA.

Lasting exactly two minutes – BRENDA scoots around the room like a clockwork toy as the trio deliver a song which will have you clapping along before the half-way mark as Venture Lows are a set of players who are able to start a party flowing and unsurprisingly have supported as the opening act for numerous tours and it can only be a matter of time before they are headlining their own.

From time to time I come across music I know that my co-founding partner of the original site would have particularly enjoyed, so a moment of pure indulgence for Julie who died on the 30th of September 2011 at the age of 39 –  and whilst far from standard fare of this site, I found myself smiling wistfully reminded of Julie Norbury as her eyes would have twinkled through beaming visage at the sound of White And Black Keys by Dandy.

Hold your partner close and smooch with White And Black Keys – now – even one minute delay may be too late to ever do it again.

Jasmine Sokko – H2O – Single Review

The Singaporean melancholic-synth creator Jasmine Sokko released the single H2O on the 16th.

Theoretically H2O is a track I should be running to the hills to get away from, however, as regular readers know compositions dripping with sadness are likely to catch my attention.

I equally ask you also to set aside the cynicism you make have of the surface to allow the underlying weave of the composition, lyrical content and expressive vocal to wind its way around the room.

Although H2O is only Jasmines’ second single she has, demonstrably, an innate ability to bring together the emotional context of the song with the tools to hand, that no amount of time sitting in a lecture theatre and ‘learning by experience’ will ever equal.

Written from the perspective of being surrounded by a society of rigid norms which bear down like a vice to stultify any sense of much other than ‘behaving appropriately’ resulting in a life where chasing dreams is perceived as an abomination and even more sadly unlikely to ever achieve the promises laid out as the prizes for ‘doing the right thing’ and, to me, H2O adroitly encapsulates those thoughts aurally.

Whilst, simply for musical style, an artiste to whom I will probably not return – I wish Jasmine Sokko every success for the future, as she deserves it and a creator I anticipate you will hear much more of in the mainstream, so long as the breaks, so sadly needed in the music industry, come her way.

Thank you for doing what you do Jasmine and please keep on doing what you do.

Billy Pilgrim – If Hindsight Could Save A Life – Audio

The English alt-electro creator Billy Pilgrim reveals new music from time to time.

Following up on the LP Get Human last year his latest track –  If Hindsight Could Save A Life has, as perhaps to be anticipated give the eclectic range of the previous seven songs revealed, a very different feel in what is at its core a just under three minute techno number.

Although the guitar and piano having gone there remains his quizzical, wry lyrical content and it isn’t often that a Xylophone and steel drums are used as the lead instruments.

Evidently a talented instrumentalist and songwriter, who also knows his way around electronica – I look forward to hearing more by Billy Pilgrim.

Their newest track – Hollow – is a barrage of sound that pulverises the ears in a roughly three and three quarters minutes of lamentation of a world spinning out of control on an ever more erratic axis.
