Mother Lights – Last Dance – Audio

The US based folk-rock quartet Mother Lights released the EP Waiting for Mammoths on the 13th.

Mother Lights

Mother Lights

An immersive four track release which blends keys, bowed and strummed strings, percussion and vocal in to a weave of rich tapestry with a vaguely forlorn sense of wistful remembrance to the compositions.

With influences steeped in UK folk-revival and US folk-rock of the ’60s, Mother Lights are well positioned to create music which draws from a deep well of creativity, yet are able to transpose the songs through the decades to give the sounds a fresh lick of paint.

The penultimate track on Waiting For MammothsLast Dance – being my pick of the release.

Their music combines tradition and modernism, to deliver energetic songs which are marked by the distinctive sound of the Cretan laouto and singular vocal which are surrounded by layers of percussion and, an electric guitar – which in the forthcoming album is played by the increasingly involved Guy Picciotto.

The second track of the nine on Mother is Only Love.

Following on quickly from the LP City Slackers the new single (available on bandcamp) is a snarling release that, rightly, takes fire at those who want to control others bodies and minds with the profits being donated to Planned Parenthood.

Both song titles summarise the concept of each composition – this is White Bread President.

Basic Bitches – We All Moved To The City Now We Can’t Afford To Live – Audio

The US based new wave outfit Basic Bitches released the LP City Slackers yesterday.

The heat of the fury can be felt as the music emerges through the speakers as snarling vocals and angry drums chase through the room. The low register of bass pounds in to the ears with guitar harrying the audience. That isn’t to say that it is all about rage as lyric can be sarcastic humour as well as insightful commentary of the world around.

Best not to play this before having an appraisal, unless the idea is to loose the job, as pent-up frustrations will inevitably spill-over. A band to play with volume turned up to fully submerge in to the music.

From the bakers dozen album (available on bandcamp)  the opener – We All Moved To The City Now We Can’t Afford To Live.
