As regular readers will know I am often late to emails of introduction,  though they always receive a response, sometimes judiciously my timing on those older emails is on the button – this is one of those occasions. Back in September 2015 I received an email of introduction I caught up with on the 3rd – equally noting in my response that although I had enjoyed what I had heard, there had been no music since then – only to receive notification today (as I type) after an almost three year break from the Studio – Mountain Lakes are back with a brand new single and more planned for the year resultingly…

The Quiet Sun peering over the horizon to herald a new dawning for Mountain Lakes.

The combinations of electronica and guitar pulse through the room in gentle undulations in to which the listener finds their body rhythms syncopating while a silken vocal weaves a web around the ears with audience and band merging in to one another to form a conjoined organic being.

Buttercream 87 feat. D.Ni.L – Living Festival (He Loved It All) – Single Review

Buttercream 87 is an English synthwave creator.

D.Ni.L

D.Ni.L

The latest song to surface – Living Festival (He Loved It All) – which was revealed on the 30th of December, a collaboration with the English musician D.Ni.L, is an upbeat retro-dance track which invites the listener to disrobe their lives from the artifice of social mores in which all are expected to live the life of a template as stamped out by a bureaucrat – and enjoy moments as they arise.

The shifting electronica providing the structural architecture for a vocal which slips between baritone and countertenor that affords the song its organic temperament and finds the listener joining in, in easy dance-step.

Buttercream 87 doesn’t have a website or social media page to which I am able to direct you, nor a photographic image – hence the accompanying image of D.Ni.L.

The combinations of sweeping synth lay in sharp contrast to the distinctive vocal and springy guitar to deliver in the latest track – Brighton – a zesty crispness that refreshes like a lemon shower, whilst simultaneously wrapping the listener in a soft and fluffy bathrobe.

Recent tours in Europe, including England, Germany and Italy and North Africa taking in Tunisia are likely to add to the visibility of a more than capable musician which will be enhanced by the forthcoming album.

Chronica

The track K.I.S.S. has been released as a standalone single in advance of the EP (available on bandcamp) and is a collaboration with the English dreamwave duo From Apes To Angels who have regularly featured over the years.

K.I.S.S. is a hazy wash of softly brushed electronica that floats calmly through the ears whilst the duality of voices hypnotise the audience.

Word also arrives that From Apes To Angels are in the process of recording more music to follow-up the release of their début EP New Skin which featured in June.
