She Pleasures Herself

All experienced musicians She Pleasures Herself came together last year and have been able to reveal a début LP – Fetish which was released earlier in the month.

The dark menacing textures of instrumental and synthetic sounds drift from the speakers like a dark fog with the vocal superbly aligned to the musical context, seemingly surfacing from somewhere high above, with its mesmerising, menacing delivery.

Quickly the listener becomes lost inside a shroud of industrial electronica which unrelentingly cloaks the audience in tighter embrace in well paced and layered shadows, sadly far too soon their one release thus far is over.

I look forward to hearing much more of She Pleasures Herself in short order as immediately out of they starting gate they already have much to the world of music.

By way of an introduction, from the eleven track album (available on bandcamp), Touch.

Hazelfier – Why – Audio

The Portuguese alt-folk band Hazelfier are working towards the release of their début LP A Life or When Airplanes Don’t Sing imminently.

Formed at the tail end of last year Hazelfier have made seven of the twelve tracks on the album available and my pick of the tracks around, as I write is – Why – which contains a landscape of familiarity, despite supping deeply from its inspiration is able to offer a melancholic construct which strikes its own path.

Limbo

Fulminating pent-up rage bubbles across the floor like acid eating into metal as Limbo cast a scant eye around the world. Yet the frustrations are held in check to deliver compositions which rely on melodic construct to deliver their acerbic perspectives and it is the juxtaposition of the two, which gives the material an understated mannerism, that marks the quintet out for consideration.

The bass / percussion combinations speak of the frustrations and sit in tandem with the vocal, whilst the guitars are given time and space to add the colour palette to the sounds and the end result are sounds that are able to carry the tracks, which typically extend well over four minutes, keeping the audience engaged with the progress.

Originally a six piece, one of the guitarists left recently and it will be interesting to see if Limbo is able to continue to generate their expansive textures of guitars with only the two.

JUBA - Psychedelic rock from Portugal

JUBA – artwork: Dois Tristes Tigres.

You may have thought given the preponderance of vocalists that JUBA would essentially be a vocal out-fit, far from it, the voices are echoed into the background giving the garage rock style psychedelia something of a mellowed feel. Tracks flow through the speakers at a veritable trot and immediately the listener is intrigued as to how the combinations will work. There is no sense of disappointment as the quartet deliver subtle moods and colours to the material that rarely runs beyond the three and a half minute mark.


JUBA have managed to distil the essence of psychotropia and dilute it with diligently produced whisps of smoke, permitting the audience to enjoy a sound that has a dreamy quality which rests the brain, whilst upping the tempo focussing the mind more on the music than an internal exploration.

Their debut LP the, ten track thirty five minute Mynah is a distinctive and enthralling body of work.
