For those who already know Greta Bull-Crossan from previous releases you will find a very different soundscape from previous material as Strangers compacts the open fret-work to deliver a more synth laden track.

For those who don’t know Re:Gretabull of pivotal point in the music is a singular voice which is able to wrest emotional context, without ever becoming saccharine, from the driest moment with a luscious softness to the vocal no matter where it is in pitch, enabling the compositions to unerringly extend across keys, both minor, major and octaves, leaving the listener in rapt attention.

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.

The Girl Who Cried Wolf – Tin Men – Single Review

The Belgian melancholic-rock quintet The Girl Who Cried Wolf revealed their latest single Tin Men on the 20th.

Even on a very sunny day Tin Men would cast a shadow over the sun as the intoxicating registry of darkness cloaks the listener in hypnotic layers of synth and guitar with scattered percussion glimpsed through the room as the seductive vocal entices the listener closer to the speakers.

There are rumours that The Girl Who Cried Wolf are planning to release an LP next year, with Tin Men pencilled in as being part of the album. The only sadness is that is now only April, so until more is uncovered Tin Men will have to serve as a taster to what is in store.

Someday I Will Miss You – Nine Days – Single Review

The Croatian synth-weave project Someday I Will Miss You has featured regularly over the past approaching three years.

Someday I Will Miss You - Nine Days

Someday I Will Miss You

The latest track to surface – Nine Days – which was revealed earlier in the month is the lightest of texture thus far to appear, yet, rather running away in afeared countenance Someday I Will Miss You is able entice the listener back and unveil a track that becomes ever darker in temperament as it progresses through the just over four minutes construct.

As the crystal glass shatters across the room, so the refracted colour spectrum shines through the visual field and underplayed malcontent comes to the fore, resulting in the listener being encased in cloths of many colours in which they are invited to rest upon a throne to contemplate the soundtrack.

Atlas Wynd – Mona Lisa – Single Review

Atlas Wynd is a gaze-rock duo from England.

With just a couple of tracks around, that I have been able to hear, the most recent of which Mona Lisa was released as a single earlier this month digitally and the two tracks will be available as a 7″ AA side Vinyl on the 28th, I am already looking forward to hearing more.

The duo are able to belie the sparsity of players as the music is steeped in thick, soft, piles of texture. It is of little surprise they are keeping themselves busy on the live circuit as their ability to know one end of a song from the other enables them to encircle the listener in a melting flow of music that courses its way through the arteries, slowing the heart-beat and relaxing the mind with their dreamy delivery.
