An intriguing combination of heavy-metal and indie-light tumbles out of the speakers and yet, rather than sounding like a bad idea inevitably going to end in a car crash, the elements line themselves up in good order leaving the listener in the juxtaposed position of playing air-guitar and head-banging whilst skipping happily around the dance-floor and calling for more.

From the five track release Another One is the second.

Regularly featured since their introduction in 2014 after line-up changes and the addition of a fifth player – Jesus Let Me Fly, from the forthcoming release, is a more expansive sound than previous material.

The shoegazey guitars echo like spinning crystals refracting sunlight through the room as the stretched notes are weighted by blocky concrete bass and percussion giving Jesus Let Me Fly a clear sense of direction from which the gauzy vocal drifts dreamily through the ears.

Rusty Shipp

A dozen track album which is highlighted by the powerful guitar work both by bass and six stringers that oscillate in focal point allowing Rusty Shipp to deliver music which has an ever changing shape, that isn’t to suggest that the articulation of the percussion or calmness of vocal are not intrinsic elements to the overall sound.

From the forthcoming LP, the third song, Devil Jonah which was also released as a stand alone single earlier this month.

Captains Of April – Molly – Video

The US rock’n’weave quartet release the EP Molly on the 26th.

Captains Of April

The first track to surface is the title – which combines science-fiction cartoon with new-wave fulminations resulting in a just under over three minutes encapsulation that finds the listener, both bathing in self-induced dancing sweat whilst equally chuckling in wide smiled grin, as the combinations of pulmonary pumping and spacious lack of gravity skim across the room.

Play it loud, play it frayed, slip and slide with Captains Of April – an outfit I look forward to coming back to in due course.
