The US blues-soaked creator Laryssa Birdseye releases the début LP So What on the 16th of September.
From the dozen track album – Loser – recently surfaced.
Today, as I write, does seem to have a theme of commonality as often occurs – this was another initial introduction from February alongside the Colombian band MidBlue – with very late response by me – which has surfaced with something new to be able to feature.
The room fills with morose heel stomping rock that despite its dour mien, rather than dwelling in self-pity, raises a light that merely because life is sour at one moment in time it doesn’t preclude a better future to arrive in short order.
The English synthwave quartet IRIDƎƧƆƎ release the EP Waves on the 13th of October.
The recent reveal of Carved In Stone attests to a full release of immense beauty in which the listener is hypnotically drawn.
Combinations of tautly strung guitar are nestled against a dreamy echoing vocal and alluring synth through which a bubbling percussion threads betwixt snare and bass drum with the bass guitar tipping the song onward enabling the quartet to deliver music that has the sense of an audible depiction of the motion of a snake as muscles contract and expand leading to their dynamic weight distribution.
The English alt-rock quartet Luna Blue released the LP Nightjar on the 25th.
A six track album (available on bandcamp) that spins around the room in snazzy footstep. With the off-centre bass giving much of the material a funky hip-dipping appeal as the guitars slide up and down the fret-board providing extensive dynamic range, while the understated percussion provides cohesion and sharp tempo changes, with the vocal impressively able to pinpoint notes of higher register.
The closer and title track Nightjar, being my pick of the release with a song that is a more shadowy and brooding than presence than others on the LP.
