Millennial Falcon is an agit-rock band from the USA.
Taking a slug out of societal iniquities and the march of supremacist ideology, which is not merely prevalent in the USA rather, having a global resonance – Millennial Falcon are able to create snarling lyric which they couch within a grungy soundtrack, whilst adding a sense of positivity that those who face bigorty do not stand alone, rather that there are vast swathes around the world who are opposed to societies structured on division.
Their knack to deliver their musical message and often wrap it in sarcastic biting humour rather than a raging maelstrom, thereby affording it wider accessibility.
Their most recent LP Hikikomori was released on the 22nd and is available on bandcamp.
The fourth of the six tracks is Yogi And The Ranger.
The US sadwave duo Get Along released the EP Let My People Go yesterday.
Despite only being two players the listener is entertained by piano, guitar, bass, percussion, brass, synth and vocal in the five track reveal of melancholic countenance which drifts broodingly through the room as it envelopes the listener in ever changing shapes of sound.
The opener, Death Of A Death Metal Band, being my pick of the EP.
Stray Monroe create an attention holding soundtrack. There is a drifting melancholia that permeates, the sparkling guitar, layered bass and expressive percussion, which is delivered through the gliding vocal which unhurriedly extends notes and phrases, giving the sense of being delivered at a different tempo to the instrumentation allowing the quartet to deliver music of muliti-texturing.
The most recent single, which came out earlier this month, is Happy Accidents.
The US shoegaze duo Silver Liz are set to release their début LP imminently.
On the 15th the first track from the album – Him – was released as a stand alone single which is available on bandcamp.
Washes of pulsing guitar breeze through the room in ever evolving chord and tempo changes giving Him a sense of organic movement which hypnotically enmeshes the listener in a silken web, through which the spectral voice shimmers in shadowy light.
