The US dub-hop creator Caleb Lemond recently released the LP The Endless Paradox.
Heavily influenced by rap Caleb also finds an affinity to bluesy-folk along with references from dub-reggae from which he constructs songs with a fairly distinct sound. Whilst on the surface this may seem to be unusual wells from which to draw water he also writes material based on life’s contradictory complexities, as that too is the case with much of reggae, folk and hip-hop.
The Australian new-wave trio Destrends are planning to release the LP Lousy Lover towards the end of March.
First introduced in 2015, Destrends, have always been a trio to clear out the eardrums and Blackout is of similar vein.
A combination of instrumentation and guitar bursts through the speakers, prior to the distinctive vocal joining in, resultingly, dispersing the knots of introduction and creating spaces allowing Blackout to fill the room with their gothic architecture in a just under four and a half minutes track that highlights, once again Destrends is a band possessing considerable song-writing and delivery capability.
On the basis of Blackout, Lousy Lover, will be an EP to add to the collection.
