An eleven track album (available on bandcamp) that injects itself in to the veins as the multi-textured songs appear in the room.
An LP that reflects on self-analysis of personal relationships, the cultural conservatism of much of Australia and wider political thought which holds the audience transfixed from start to end of the roughly fifty one minutes run time.
The Wales based rockers Estrons released the single Glasgow Kisses on the 10th.

With the bitter-sweet scent of curdled milk dividing between curds and whey turning to cottage cheese in Glasgow Kiss – Estrons deliver a feisty track that bursts through the speakers in clumping slugs of coagulate that gives the song a stop start impression in which the listener becomes immersed as the punching pulses surge in and out of the ears.
It is always a pleasure to return to the quartet who are always best heard with plenty of space in which to thrash as the music flies through the room in moody temper.
The US rock quintet Eighth Day released the LP Into The Desert today.
A ten track album (available on bandcamp) that has an intriguing backdrop as the quintet deliver music which is steeped in East Tennessee influences yet is able to stretch away from the country roots to deliver a soundtrack which encompasses a global reach of driving country harmony laden rock’n’roll and finds a potential audience of international interest due to its dampened earthiness and crusty rock riffs that shard across the room in unadorned refreshing honesty.
Within the past twenty four hours their newest track – Creep Inside – was launched and to best engage with by burying your head within a couple of speakers and turn the volume up until your ears are bleeding from feedback – then and only then – hit play.
Like a mischief of rats running around the room the three and a half minutes track scurries back and forth in an every flowing thread of sharp teeth, glittery eye and silky coat akin to an oiled dancer lithely wrapping limbs on a stage – oh and just kick those speakers to ensure they are churning out maximum wattage.
The Australian rock trio Mecha Mecha release the LP Blink & You’ll Miss It on the 28th.
Unafraid to reach in to the instrument pot to deploy the right ones for each track Mecha Mecha are able to deliver music which is steeped in classic-rock yet has a differentiation through their own making.
From the six track album Your Choice – the opener – is given a creamy texture with the addition of synths.
