Plastic Friends

I must confess to some confusion as Plastic Friends appear to have formed in 2010, but have done nothing much until this year. I can only assume a stalled project and when I know more, I will let you know.

For now, here is Let It Be Said.

Strangefruit

Instantly, on hitting play, the observer is lifted on a blanket of sounds and from being part of the audience, becomes part of the experience. A melting-pot of melliferous mellifluent mellow music wraps the listener in a gauze from which there is no desire to escape as Strangefruit take over the thought processes.

There is much to highlight in the experience of spending time with the quartet, of most significance is the consummate ease with which they mix together global influences and styles to generate an atmosphere in to which there is a natural grace to the output. Without wishing to play-down other parts of the band, the crowning glory is with no doubt the mesmeric vocal, which works due to the abilities of the songwriters to wrest the best out of the vocal / instrumental combinations to provide for material of the highest order.

A recent release – the debut EP – Between The Earth and Sea should see the outfit gaining higher visibility, though I have a feeling more will be made of the who they sound like and where the music would fit rather than acknowledging Strangefruit is a superb band in their own right.

EdTang & The Chops

EdTang & The Chops has more than a hint of americana as pedal steel slides across the stage, but inside that, is a lively retake of Celtic Rock and the listener is drawn to The Pogues, so how could I not recommend you take a moment out of your day.

There is great pleasure in exploring the world of emerging bands and the quintet exemplify why this is the case. A laid-back soundtrack is complimented by a whisky soaked and cigarette smokers vocal, which gives the material a scintillating edge that captures the ears immediately on hitting play.

The folk derivatives ripple round the room as a diverse range of instruments are deployed to deliver engaging music. The whole soundscape resembles the what if –  The Pogues and Kirsty MacColl had created more music together – well it would have been EdTang & The Chops.That isn’t to say this is some pale pastiche, far from it, it is a pure delight and a band I would like to hear much more of in the future as they combine traditional sounds with inventiveness to provide the audience with something immensely fulfilling.

Classic storytelling combines with mood fitting compositions to generate music which not only captures the listener but gets them involved.
