Saint Augustine – Right Way Down – Audio

The US melancholic-rock quartet release the LP Lost Two Days on the 1st of June.

Unhurried tracks float in to the room on the wings of reverberating guitar chords, which seem to melt the steel in the strings, while bass and percussion weigh the tracks with their sadness which is further compounded through the emotionally laden vocal.

Whilst reaching for a handkerchief to dry the eyes the listener also feels a catharsis through the drifting layers of sound.

The ten track album (available on bandcamp) is well worth adding to the collection as the players demonstrate their ability to write and deliver emotionally charged music. My selection from the release is the third Right Way Down.

The rumble-foot project Pray for Triangle Zero revealed the LP Pastel Seascape on the 17th.

Pray for Triangle Zero - Foundation

Pray for Triangle Zero – Foundation

Rumble-foot as a musical genre you may be wondering of what that means. If you are listening through MP3 or Earphones – listening – won’t help you. Though for the rest of us who listen to music through multi-speaker systems – remove all footwear before hitting play and the definition will make perfect sense as the sole of the foot oscillates on the flooring to the pulsing ergonomics.

What better place to start on the fifteen track release (available on bandcamp) than the opener – Foundation.

Davidson – Whatever Lies Before You – Single Review

The Swedish heavy-metal solo project Davidson fairly regularly surfaces with new material.

The latest song to be revealed is Whatever Lies Before You. A thumper of a composition that hurtles out of the speaker festooned in pin-badges and fraying denim that finds the listener joining in with the extended bridge.

There is a delightful dampening that gives Whatever Lies Before You a softlight focus and earthy feel. The more it runs through the just under four and three quarter minutes play time the longer the audience wants it to last – whilst completely forgetting this is a band of one – not a full line-up of four.

The compositions are led by combinations of piano and acoustic guitar often with a hushed synth or violin providing a soft brush to give the songs a more expansive air, all of which lays as backdrop to a voice which able to express emotional context to the pieces.

The approximately three quarters of an hour, dozen track, album is able to pull at the heart without leaving the listener feeling like an emotional wreck on its conclusion.

The eighth song is Into The Blue.
