The closing track is the darkly-cloaked Drug Dilling.

An eleven track album (available on bandcamp) which delves in to many nether regions for inspiration, sometimes of ’50s Broadway Musical others of late 17th Century Qing Dynasty and other moments reach towards the 24th Century to deliver music which has a retrospective-futuristic-covalence in which the listener finds a calming equilibrium in which to retreat.
The Canadian hip-hop project Element & Broadbent released the LP Safe Spaces yesterday.
Element & Broadbent
Material which always casts a quizzical eye at the world around, Safe Spaces is a six track album (available on bandcamp) which casts a wary eye at a world in which selfishness and self-entitlement is a new normality.
The tempo and structuring of songs gives them an infectious beat in which the listener finds themselves involuntary swaying the dougie.
Millennial Falcon is an agit-rock band from the USA.
Taking a slug out of societal iniquities and the march of supremacist ideology, which is not merely prevalent in the USA rather, having a global resonance – Millennial Falcon are able to create snarling lyric which they couch within a grungy soundtrack, whilst adding a sense of positivity that those who face bigorty do not stand alone, rather that there are vast swathes around the world who are opposed to societies structured on division.
Their knack to deliver their musical message and often wrap it in sarcastic biting humour rather than a raging maelstrom, thereby affording it wider accessibility.
Their most recent LP Hikikomori was released on the 22nd and is available on bandcamp.
The fourth of the six tracks is Yogi And The Ranger.
The latest release, which came out earlier in the month, Dreams (available on bandcamp) is an absorbing flow of spectral vocal surrounded by ethereal instrumentation in which the listener is entranced by its haunting presence and although lasting less than three and a quarter minutes affects thought for some time after fading in to silence.
