Muddler – Dogwater – Audio

The US sludge quartet Muddler released the EP Leave room for contemplation earlier in the month.

Muddler

The listener finds themselves mired knee-high in warm gloop immediately on hitting play as Muddler deliver their flattened sticky compositions. Far from struggling to escape the enveloping mud the audience immerses their body in the mossy bog, revelling in every moment.

From the four track EP (available on bandcamp) my selection is the second – Dogwater.

Rest assured, well to be more prescient; wallow, in certainty I will come back to Muddler more than once in the future as who can’t be other than transfixed by the puddles of the quartet.

Signal-To-Noise – Until We All Decide To Be Released – Single Review

Signal-To-Noise is an alt-folk quintet from the USA.

Signal-To-Noise

Revolving players are deployed in various tracks, with additional members and instruments brought in as necessary which allows Signal-To-Noise to deliver compositions each of which is painted with very different brushstroke.

The most recent to be revealed Until We All Decide To Be Released is drawn from medieval minstrel to which Signal-To-Noise add a rich tapestry of layering that seems to transport the listener on a journey in time-travel to the weightlessness of future-rock before returning and gently placing the audience, just over three and a half minutes later, back to earth.

Word arrives of an LP Land Of Nod being planned for release later in the year.

The most recent track to surface Mistakes, which is available on bandcamp, came out earlier in the month is marked by the deep shadows of the evolving synths which cast an eerie light around the vocal.

My apologies, as this has been sitting in my email inbox since early last week, I am late to the article.

Marquee Lights released their début eponymous EP (available on bandcamp) at the tail end of last month

The four track release ranges from alt-folk, through jazz-funk to more compressed rock giving the listener a good idea of their overall sound. My selection from the EP is the closer – The Only Reality, in which the duo draw a deeper well from blues rock than other songs and allows the vocal to stand in greater contrast to the more melancholic soundtrack.

Prior to hitting play limber up your hips, knees and most importantly ankles as Funkrust Brass Band take the listener on a journey that demands much of the lower joints in a roughly twenty five minute seven track release of unrelenting strutting dance.

My selection of which is the fifth – Swamp Samba.
