The first song to surface from the single is Ingolf vs The Man Cricketman (available as a stand alone single on bandcamp) which merely asks the listener to leave their temporal-lobe hanging on a hat-stand prior to entering the room to allow the frontal-lobe plenty of room to extract the juices of the winding guitar, which inverts in to itself like a foaming bath with perforated bubbles of reverb snatching inside escaping echoes, whilst percussion taunts the bass as it snaps at the calcaneal tendon with the vocal enticing the listener to the less empiric aspects of thought.
The Hong Kong based electro-rock duo Deer revealed their latest track on the 1st.
Wild Eyes is more guitar orientated than music of theirs previously while retaining the underpinning of electronica allowing them to deliver a song which fills the room in a deep-purple haze as the mesmeric vocal takes the spotlight.
Inviolate, a US metal outfit, reveal a live performance video of the song Sisyphus.
For a while now I have been meaning to get an article written about Inviolate, for some reason, have never quite been able to get round to it, so as a very brief introduction – an audience eye view of the band on stage.
The English alt-rock band The Pocket Gods are finalising a further LP scornful of the gatekeepers of the music industry.
The Pocket Gods
The forthcoming album, will be a further one hundred tracks each lasting approximately thirty seconds.
If previous articles on their concept of 100×30 LPs slipped by unseen – to explain briefly – the premise arises that as places such as Spotify will pay royalties after thirty seconds playing of a song, in material crowded in to never ending playlists, why write songs lasting more than thirty seconds?
Their first LP of this concept was included in the Guinness Book Of Records for the most songs on an album and they released a follow-up based on the works of Sheakespeare, Spotify didn’t take too kindly to the scathing criticism of their business model and stopped accepting these sorts of submissions.
Not ever dissuaded on issues with which they find grievance – The Pocket Gods raise the vacuity again with the song – The Perverts Of The Music Industry – from the forthcoming album.
