Park Planet – Through – Single Review

The Scottish nu-disco outfit Park Planet revealed a new track within the past twenty hours.

Park Planet - Through

Park Planet

Through is a further track to be released which is sign-posted as coming from the tale of the long projected second album, with the working title Rebel, Rebel.

The song has a more electronic and jazz influenced layering than much of their material that has featured over the years, with instrumentation playing a backdrop with a draw that minds of Ashley Reaks though of divergent process in which Park Planet take the listener on a trippy-step around the dance-floor in its just under four and a quarter minutes duration rather than a bleak journey of disquiet.

david shouji – tachi – Single Review

Returning with a quite different thought process to music previously featured – the Swedish creator david shouji surfaced recently with the triphop track tachi.

The only sadness in the latest reveal (available on bandcamp) being that tachi only lasts for less than three and a sixth minutes.

Prior to going anywhere near the play button – turn down the lights and draw the curtains to become fully immersed in the bending bubbles of lava lamp wax which reshape as they almost reach touching distance, only to float away in abstractions of interlocking multi-dimensional fractals.

I fully enjoyed the experimental diametric of previous material featured, I equally take delight in this far more amorphous flow – ergo – it will be intriguing to discover in which persona david shouji will next appear.

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

Faux Bandit is a rock duo from Australia.

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.

Bear Muda – Looking (Eyes Shut) – Single Review

The English synth-wave quartet Bear Muda revealed their début Looking (Eyes Shut) – single a few days ago.

Electro-drum pad and creamy synth are merged with natural percussion, bass, guitar and vocals to deliver  finding the listener drifting back in time to the early ’80s with the listener pondering what ever happened to that flamboyant, romance-period outfit last seen being packed in to a box to put in the attic; much like Dorian Grey, Bear Muda are able to hold back the years whilst living in the present in Looking (Eyes Shut).

Whilst retrospective of countenance Bear Muda are able to invest the music with a ‘nu’ to the foundations of new-romanticism and thereby providing a fresh set of linen.

The listener finds themselves drawn, like iron to a magnet, as the stunning vocal wraps around the room.

The unhurried song, which is essentially only acoustic guitar and voice, is layered with inflection, melody and harmonies which belie the sparse framework creating an immersive composition and finds the audience wanting to hear more – though there isn’t, at this juncture any more than the one song (available on bandcamp) to discover, nor website or even social media page.

I am looking forward to coming back to Taylor Mac with enthusiastic anticipation.
