Best not to hit play if you are about to head to something requiring adrenaline as to enjoy the song to fullest extent you will need time to allow the day to continue at unhurried pace for quite some time after the conclusion of the just under four minute composition.

Harking of reel to reel tape recordings Faking Music (available on bandcamp) has the warmth that comes through analogue recording in a track that drifts lazily through the room in an ambient psychedelic combination of synthesiser, guitars, percussion and multi-vocal that leaves the listener calmly reposed in a state of subjective intuition as the brain slows down to the weaving textures that flow through the ears.

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.

Within the past eight hours the fourth of the six tracks on the album (available on bandcamp) was revealed.

By The Spider’s Thread We Are Linked which, as their previous material, takes the listener on an eerie journey of dark mountain valleys and looming cliff-faces as the just under five minute composition spreads its dark cloud through the room leaving the listener to conjure up tales of their own making to the soundtrack.

Nervous Germans – Punk Rock Radio – Audio

The Germany based alt-rock band Nervous Germans were introduced back in 2015.

Nervous Germans

In the middle of last month I was sent an email to let me know of a new EP due for release in early April, so once again my apologies for the delayed arrival of this article. The three tracks plus one remix EP The Creeps Are Back In Town (available on bandcamp) having been released on the 1st.

In a release that travels much ground from ’70s punk references, to spotlight classic rock, my selection of the LP is inevitably, for those who know the site, will be unsurprising the opener (which also appears as a remix as the closer) Punk Rock Radio – in which those of the ’70s will spot The Damned and The Ruts riffs and references – in an EP in which Nervous Germans cast their acerbic humour, on the world around.

The sixth of the nine tracks – Clouded Minds – demonstrates their influences steeped in ’70s heavy-metal to which they add flourishes of Scandi-rock, resulting in an almost five minutes song full of melody and aural metaphysics.
