The US alt-rock quartet Cosmics released their début LP Turn On earlier in the month.
A core of Rock ‘n’ Roll is dipped into psychedelia allowing Cosmics to deliver music that is best heard with on a smokey dance-floor allowing the listener to slowly gyrate whilst intoxicating themselves on the sweet scent which blows-back through the room.
Guitars sways betwixt glittery ’60s Paco Rabanne inspired plastic disc reflections of light and Mary Quant soft weave floating fabric whilst bass and percussion form the hemlines around which everything rests allowing the mesmeric vocal to drift through the ears in dreamy waves.
My selection from the ten track album (available on bandcamp) is the second Bad Habits.
Their first recorded track Can We Do That Again was released earlier in the month and is available on bandcamp.
A blend of blues, dance and solid rock enables The Skullers, in Can We Do That Again, to deliver a track that has both a beguiling raggedy edged gruffness to it and a thundering beat that has the listener refreshing themselves on how to skiffle whilst searching for a pair of blue brothel creepers.
Word arrives of an EP arriving sometime in September and will be a release, judging by this, that will warm up the autumn days for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere.
Stand up, clear some space and only then hit play…
The Forer Effect is a brand new emo trio from the USA.
The Forer Effect
Within the past eight hours new music has appeared that I am able to share with you.
There is an accompanying four track EP – Human Beings Are Stupid Fucking Animals And I’m Depressed Because I Am One by – Nick Beliveau (Guitar / Vocals), Sam Dawson (Drums / Vocals) and Calvin Thomke (Bass) in the moniker of The Forer Effect which by band name perspicaciously announces the output with exactitude of the introversion of construct by the descriptors of counterproductive Barnum psychoanalysis.
My selection from the EP is the second of the four – Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun – with its bass strings hanging so low from the fret-board that the listener can envisage they drag along the floor prior to thumb reaching for notes.
