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.

After an eight year break The Willowz return with music that is more spacious. The penultimate of the ten tracks on Fifth, Now You Know, lights the room with a kaleidoscopic hue of thickly piled music that has the listener reaching for a blanket on which to lay and relax in the echoing, psychedelic tinged, soundtrack.

The Jim Mitchells is a trippy-rock quintet from Australia.

The best way to approach the latest reveal – Ankle Deep – is supine with plenty of time to hand as long after the music fades away you will be disinclined to move.

Wandering vocal opens the just over two and a half minutes track prior to the sleep inducing guitar that hoves in to earshot and by the end of the second bar the listener finds themselves hypnotised in to a state of transfixed immobilisation.
