Loveless Death Scene is the US trippy-rock project of Carlos J. Ruiz III.

The music floats through the room, as though carried on hypotrochoid and epitrochoid curves, creating ever more intricate multi-textured patterns the longer the notes linger in the air.

The début LP Hopeless Dream Machine is available on bandcamp and my pick of the six tracks on the album is the fourth – Sadness Broadcast.

Mothra Stewart – God Is A Surfer / Cosmic Coincidence – Single Review

The US trippy-rock project Mothra Stewart released the AA side single God Is A Surfer / Cosmic Coincidence towards the end of last month.

There is an intoxicating beauty to be gleaned from the release with its warm analogue sound through which a mesmerising vocal blends with guitar in a release which is best engaged with plenty of time to spare, not for the duration of the tracks, rather their after-effects.

God Is A Surfer is an acoustic led, almost folksy composition, which is layered in platelets of voice, which the audience can sense calmly feeding into the brain, minding of the corpuscles flowing through bloodstream.

My pick of the release is Cosmic Coincidence, which is even more resonate of Psilocybin Mushrooms.

Those of longer stay may recall Chill Russell reviewed last year, the commonality is Marc LeFebvre, who has now moved from Austin to New York, though word arrives he will be joining them on stage during their appearance at The Delancy on the 7th – for those within reach of New York and there is an LP in train of thought.

Melting shoegaze, psychedelia and blues in to their output Montes Jura deliver music which slips the listener in to a hypnotic trance as the slowly revolving hazy echoes and reverbs circle through the room.

The eight track album (available on bandcamp) has a jam session feel to it and my pick of the release is the third – Lies.

Playpen Profile (available on bandcamp) is an intriguing combination of mathematical-rock angularity nestled alongside jazz-influences and rounded out by shimmering reverberation and echoes giving the song a sense of simultaneously tripping-out on acid whilst buzzing on speed – a combination Paprika Jones handle with aplomb and leaves the listener looking forward to hearing more material in the near future.

Four distinct tracks make up their début EP with the quartet offering compositions that have as a common thread a slightly retrospective brit-blues analogue feel which slips through the room akin to an intravenous drip of psilocybe semilanceata.

The free-flowing instrumentation, which on occasion, includes: Saxophone; Trumpet and keys – alongside the breezing guitar that bends strings beyond breaking point; With the adroitly handled bass wrapping up distinctive low melodies; As the drum-kit wanders, without ever loosing step, in to eddies of its own making; Over which the vocal layers everything together with the refined ability of one that you just know would be able find juice extract in a barren desert.

Only their début reveal you may ponder? As I do too –  already Free Believer have managed to demonstrate unified proficiency many bands of extended extraction long seek yet fail ever to deliver.

By way of an introduction; The closer on the EP – Our World.
