Pacing between leisurely flows of slacker and  fulminating newwave Pardoner are able create themselves a wide open space of difference as distortion, low-slung guitar strings and bustling percussion flood in to the room.

Sea Span - Red Dress Classic

Sea Span

The first track to surface Red Classic Dress is a more ethereal soundtrack than material previously featured with a rolling drum providing the pivot around which glimmering guitar and spectral vocal revolve in a song that has the air of sadness hanging through the just under three and a half minutes of its duration.

Youth On Soda – Playgrounds – Single Review

The US burbling-rock trio Youth On Soda surfaced with a new track last week.

Youth On Soda - Playgrounds

Youth On Soda

Whilst of connection with previous material featured with its speaker challenging bass line in Playgrounds, Youth On Soda, slow the pace to entice the listener with gracious combinations of throbbing bass and deep percussion in which the listener sinks in to the puddle of loosely tied skins with an evaporating vocal spinning through the room. Then out of an unexpected corner hurtles an urgent guitar to discombobulate the gyroscope and the song takes on a new dimension of growling predator agilely consuming the unwary – akin to an Owl alighting upon prey.

The latest track to surface (available on bandcamp) continues the theme of their last feature with a hazy flow of blurry guitar that fills the room with feel-good factor as Rival Island invite the audience to slow-step with a partner across the dance-floor with a nod to the finest of ’50s rock’n’roll.

Those of sharper eye for detail may have noticed that the accompanying artwork for the single is entitled See You There – one can only cross fingers and toes in expectation that this sign-posts a new LP is on its way.
