Spielbergs – Distant Star – Single Review

The Norwegian rock trio Spielbergs released the single Distant Star on the 13th.

Spielbergs

Spielbergs

A track which shakes the dust out of the speakers as it surfaces in to the room in a barrage of guitars and percussion. Distant Star (available on bandcamp) is a song which digs deep in to the archives of rock’n’roll yet is able to surface with something that is distinctly and refreshingly new as they ably sew ideas of different generations in to a cohesive package with no one feeling short-changed – perhaps even more importantly – deliver a track which doesn’t seem anything other than a natural evolutionary progression rather than a synthetic reimagination.

Cash – Ashes & Bones – Audio

The Australian rock duo Cash released the single Ashes & Bones on the 29th of September.

Quietly working on their début LP – Ashes & Bones (available on bandcamp) – makes for a welcome interlude, as other than who have the opportunity to see them live, this is only the second track to surface.

Ashes & Bones attests to the songwriting abilities of Cash, as whilst there is a dark framework to the output along with an unhurried delivery the listener finds themselves captivated by the allure of the  starkness of the composition, which is a contrast to the song Lightning Strike (also on bandcamp) which is a thumping rock number.

The High Wire Act – Meltdown – Audio

The High Wire Act is an English rock trio.

Extended reverberating guitar gives the music a retrospective feel as the trio deliver tracks which range from intensity of rock passion to ballads of frail architectures though always with an almost tangible emotional connection between voice and the tale being told which ensures the listener doesn’t leave their company without having undergone a moving moment of connectivity.

Their most recent release (available on bandcamp) – the four track EP Weekend Millionaires is an excellent way to get to discover The High Wire Act, the second song on which is Meltdown.

Appropriately given the track title Summer Rain (available on bandcamp) delivers a warm drizzle of guitar in a song that has a subdued countenance through which a more than capable vocal is able to inject an emotional resonance leaving the listener refreshed for the shower.

MidBlue

Back in February they made contact, sadly as is often the case this slipped through the net until now, though with fortune this month they have released their eponymous LP – an eight track album of pumping rock”roll that pulses through the speakers to combinations of punchy percussion, fleet of foot guitar, power-drive bass and superlative vocals finding the listener searching out a faded leather jacket and a whisky bottle.

The closing track is Nowhere.
