The nine track album (available through Nevado) will be available on various formats, including Vinyl and on listening to the roughly thirty four minutes release I can only advise that this is an LP to own as the 12″ platter to fully enjoy the luxurious melting flow of vocals, electronica, and instrumentation which curls out of the speakers.

The only track I am able to feature, at present, is the opener – Who’s Your Lover – a song which provides fair reflection of the thickly piled carpet of sound which follows in the remaining eight songs.

Who’s Your Lover is a pulsating composition, driven, as it is by persuasive beat and drum-kit with the bass layering a deeper resonance to the pacing while the drifting notes of guitar weave through the electronics as vocal whispers in the ear.

When the album comes out do take a heading to Dark Vice, the penultimate track with its shifting patterns of mood set within a gazey gothic framework.

A band with a significant following already, their North Western European Tour supporting Gary Numan in March, will help to build the audience further.

ESTATE – Winter Kingdom – Video

The Russian prog-metal quintet ESTATE will be releasing the LP Mirrorland on the 20th of April.



Continuing to develop their profile in the Russian rock scene, regularly supporting international touring bands as well as headlining their own tour schedule, Mirrorland can’t help but raise their profile more broadly internationally.

Winter Kingdom, from the forthcoming album, serves a decent representation of their music as an introduction with its powerful melodies and highly impressive delivery.

Betty Pulls A Fast One – Dressed In Birds – Audio

The English sadcore duo Betty Pulls A Fast One are scheduling the release of the LP – Dressed In Birds – for February.

Betty Pulls A Fast One

There is a skill required to be able to create music which is so dour of countenance that rather than attending the regular funerals of an ever dwindling audience as a result of self-inflicted injuries whilst listening to the compositions  – musicians find themselves with an expanding following who immerse themselves in the the brooding darkness finding a cohesive catharsis in the material and Betty Pulls A Fast One, who have regularly featured on numerous occasions since their introduction in 2016, are one such duo.

Those of longer stay, or who click the link to the initial introduction will discover Dressed In Birds was first scheduled for release last year. I am more hopeful that the appearance of the title track with its minor chords progression does signify the album’s imminent arrival.

Creative Space Cadet – Bound 2 The Police State – Single Review

Creative Space Cadet is the electro-hop project for Tom Feltenberger, from the USA, to deliver his thoughts on the world around.

Creative Space Cadet

The most recent song to be revealed – Bound 2 The Police State –  which came out a few hours ago, contemplates of the narrative of State and Population by which the US is increasingly riven, with resultant sectional social insularity and polarisation of perspective.

The power of the music by Creative Space Cadet is that although the mood of thought is frustration it isn’t delivered in screaming furiosity, rather mellowed electronica which extends an arm towards all, while searching for answers on how to rebuild connections rather then seeking to further wedge clefts in to silos.
