It has been a couple of years since the Danish dream-wave duo Sweet Tempest last featured.

Their latest track, set for release on the 2nd of December – Empty Box – is an ethereal brushstroke of synths and percussion surrounding the structure forming bass from which the dreamy vocal floats like a mist shrouded spectre.
The English heavy-metal trio Leap Of Faith revealed the track Welcome Home within the past few minutes.
Leap Of Faith
Pull on a leather jacket and yank up the volume buttons as far as they will go to head-bang with Welcome Home which unfurls the sounds of uncomplicated ’80s rock, reminding of Motörhead and AC/DC with its basal pleasure zones.
Leap Of Faith don’t aim to complicate an uncomplicated musical style, rather add their own brush strokes to the mewling guitar, pulsating percussion and throbbing bass which is adroitly accomplished by the distinctive vocal that shatters through the speakers in their compressed spring coils of the style.
Word has it that the trio spent some time in the studio recently and I look forward to hearing more of their recordings which I will share with you as I am able.
The English dance-tronic duo Betty Pulls A Fast One were introduced earlier in the year with their début number.

Within the past four hours their latest track surfaced – Ghost Cat – a just over four minute piece which could not be more perspicacious of a weekend happenstance than it is – as the music revolves around the ears.
The listeners finds themselves minded of spirographs as the spokes lock one in to the other in wheels of different sized spinning meshes that all interlock in perfect unison as electro-drums and synths unfurl like emblems waving in a breeze, with almost extraneous vocal providing context, as the duo invite the audience to create animalistic shapes on the dark-light strobed dance-floor. To not partake would be miss a party moment.
Last time round I was unable to connect to social media pages – this has now been updated in time for the appearance of their second track from the LP Dressed In Birds which is due for release next year.
