The US drifting-folk creator Aaron James releases the single As The Crow Flies tomorrow.
The introspective nature of the song contemplates of the ease with which one is so easily lost in ones own little world rather than finding time to reflect on the generous formations abounding on earth never mind the vastness of the universe and the imperceptibility of any life-form in the larger scale of things.
Despite the woe betide of starting point as As The Crow Flies expands so the moment of self-pity quickly sloughs its myopic skin and the listener finds themselves gazing over distant horizons to espy wonders of far greater magnitude whilst the composition encircles the mind as it delivers a luxurious and unhurried soundtrack.
The US blues-soaked creator Laryssa Birdseye releases the début LP So What on the 16th of September.
From the dozen track album – Loser – recently surfaced.
Today, as I write, does seem to have a theme of commonality as often occurs – this was another initial introduction from February alongside the Colombian band MidBlue – with very late response by me – which has surfaced with something new to be able to feature.
The room fills with morose heel stomping rock that despite its dour mien, rather than dwelling in self-pity, raises a light that merely because life is sour at one moment in time it doesn’t preclude a better future to arrive in short order.
The US slowave project Swim Camp releases the LP SCUBA on the 29th of September.
Slowly easing its way out of the speakers, the third of the ten tracks on the album (available on bandcamp), Hands glitters with shiny guitars that sparkle through the room as the unhurriedly paced percussion bubbles underneath while the vocal, which has an unexpectedly engaging timbre, stretches flattened notes – resulting in a two and six tenths minutes of dreamy music that minds of melting chocolate.
The Slovenian trap project Gehenna teamed up with the US triphop creator Yepi to reveal Ganesha.
Ganesha has a a slowcore heart from which spirals of energy suddenly sheer through the room affording the track a knotted wreath of sound that minds of a tree growing through unloosened binds as the track bulges and contracts seemingly rebounding off itself in shrieking recoil.
The US dreamwave project Flora Couches released the LP Electric Fever on the 16th.
Although the nine track album (available on bandcamp) has a melancholic air the listener is not drawn in to a well of despondency rather slow-stepping with head gently laid on the shoulder of a partner in the luxurious textures of electronics, instrumentation and hazy vocal that float through the ears.
My selection from Electric Fever being the antepenultimate – Dim Lights.
