Still Talk – Slow Sunday – Single Review

Still Talk is a new German rock project.

Still Talk

As I type there is only one song around – Slow Sunday – though am led to believe later today a second track will be revealed.

A soft brush of blurred guitar washes through the room to the accompaniment of a layering of active drum-kit with the bass giving the track its anchor whilst a mesmerising and highly capable vocal floats as though an otherworldly presence as it transfixes the listener.

On the basis of only one song, which lasts just a tad over three minutes, I am already looking forward with eager anticipation to the second LP, never mind the, as yet unplanned, début album and anticipate Still Talk is a name that will rapidly become familiar.

Jas Josland – Lie To Yourself – Single Review

The New Zealand rocker Jas Josland released the single Lie To Yourself today.

Jas Josland

Jas Josland

Lie To Yourself is steeped in classic rock’n’roll in a song that swirls through the room with a flourish as the energetic composition launches the listener on to the dance floor to shake with the pumping percussion / bass combinations as the guitar prowls like a stalking panther whilst the vocal threads from a growling menace to intricate melodic sections.

A talented musician who, deservedly, has already had the opportunity to play internationally and Lie To Yourself can’t but help to build on a growing reputation for being able to create and deliver good time rock and in a world of many divisions, shining a positive light is extremely welcome.

Dinosaur Eyelids – More Than Nothing – Audio

The US rock band Dinosaur Eyelids released the LP Left Turn On Red on the 24th.

Dinosaur Eyelids

This is another review which necessarily begins with an apology. Back in February 2015 I was sent an email by Dinosaur Eyelids, which I only now, as I type, have got round to opening – and auspiciously it is also one of those – good timing moments – as it means I am able to listen to a brand new album – Left Turn On Red – which is available on bandcamp.

A thumping eleven track LP of classic rock, which has the listener furiously playing their air-guitar alongside the emphasised bars which crunch through the speakers in blues annotated pressure waves of power-drums, loosely tied bass strings and soaring vocal –  you have it right – turn up the volume.

The penultimate track is More Than Nothing.

Faux Bandit – Every Man Is A Pyramid Scheme – Single Review

Faux Bandit is a rock duo from Australia.

Faux Bandit

On hitting play on their latest single Every Man Is A Pyramid Scheme (available on bandcamp) the listener can easily convince themselves there are more than two players in Faux Bandit with their headbanging rock of tight riffs, driving percussion and snapping vocal.

Fast creating a stir in their local live circuit, Every Man Is A Pyramid Scheme, can’t but help to underline their abilities and open new opportunities. Necessarily, retaining a tight reign in studio performance, the listener is drawn to the conclusion that Faux Bandit is a band to see on stage as even through the speakers the fizzing energy is palpable while the switched on lyric and musical delivery sear through the room.

The Harlers

Chris Pritchard (Guitar / Vocals), Mitch Malone (Bass / Vocals) and Jamie Warren (Drums) from Swindon, England, form the rock band The Harlers.

The Harlers

The Harlers

Originally formed as a duo in early 2015 it was earlier this year they completed their line-up which has resulted in their début EP Morning Light recently being released.




Classic ’70s brit-blues soars out of the speakers as The Harlers deliver music which has an earthy, crusty guitar buzzing like a chainsaw underpinning the songs with the heavy bass line churning through the speakers giving the compositions their pile-driving presence as the drums, which are played on a relatively small kit are able to not only make their presence known, they are able to control the dynamics and tempo of the roaring guitars. Laying atop of the sound is a bluesy vocal that enables the band to take their sound on disparate trajectories, suiting both the power pieces and the quieter moments in their music.

While the addition of of bass / second vocalist hasn’t changed the style of the tracks from earlier numbers, with one of their songs which was originally released as a duo – Your Love – appearing on the new EP it does enable them to deliver music of more dynamic range and natural feel, whilst at the same time has added impetus with The Harlers now becoming more frequently seen on stage, plus of course the début full release.

By way of an introduction the opening track on Morning LightSearching.
