The first of the ten tracks Frenetika, drifts through the room as the ethereal vocal swirls around the head in a song that depicts the slightly brooding presence that is DPERD.

Feral Conservatives – Twenty-Eight – Video

Feral Conservatives is an indie rock trio from the USA.

Feral Conservatives - Twenty-Eight

Feral Conservatives

From the LP Here’s To Almost, the  fourth of the eleven tracks, Twenty-Eight flies into the room in a high-octane bundle of energy. Their use of Mandolin replacing guitar allows Feral Conservatives to create music that whilst familiar of sound is able to carve out an immediate space of difference.

Here’s to Almost – Feral Conservatives is available on iTunes.*

Ex Norwegian – On The Sidelines – Video

The US alt-rock quartet Ex Norwegian I must come back to in full later in the year.

Combinations of crunchy spikiness and loquacious ponderance slip across the floor in On The Sidelines, the fifth of the eleven tracks on the not ostentatiously named LP Pure Gold.

Ex Norwegian are a band with much to say about the world in which they find themselves and they deliver those thoughts with some eloquence. On The Sidelines a more pugnacious track than much on the album as they gather up their frocks and invite the audience to lay abandon to their space too and a satiated hand to the dance-floor that leaves the audience shaking off sweat.

Boy Wonders

The new-wave project of Derek January is the newly formed Boy Wonders from Pittsburgh in the USA.

Boy Wonders

If like me you wondered what CBGBs would have sounded like if they had done a breakfast session Boy Wonders answer the question. More than that they take a look at Devo mid-morning, but rather than sounding like an idea gone wrong, they are able to pitch in with new ideas.




Boy Wonders are able to take retro and sling it in to the future and one senses that they are a band not of the ’10s rather the ’20s as they contemplate of a narrative of post Clinton / Trump run-off and a post apocalypse of The Stasi having returned from East Germany to consume the USA. There is a sadness and bitterness that shuffles out of the speakers which reminds me somehow of Brave New World by Huxley.

Considering I have only had three tracks to hear as that is all there is as they haven’t yet played live or got round to anything else you may think I am being a little presumptive. My thoughts are a little different – if you don’t have Boy Wonders on the playlist you are perhaps more interested in musical history and this isn’t the site you should be reading.

I anticipate by the time most people will have got round to them they will be a four piece as they create music that needs more than two players for full live effect.

Where can you find the music, their current social media page and their website? Bandcamp.

XYLØ – America – Video

The US synth-wave duo XYLØ released the LP America on the 26th of February.

The title track and third of the six eases its way around the room as though an expert plasterer smoothing out many lumps and divots, yet the slight distortion gives America a brush stroke which they proffer to the audience to paint their own imagery and rather than developing as a bland canvass they are able to create music of intrigue.

XYLØ, despite this being their début album have learnt the knack of creating music with perspective, allowing the listener to ‘envisage’ – rather than painting the wall and leave nothing to the imagination.
