The first song to be revealed from the EP has surfaced as a live performance of Soft Skeleton, a track that melts in to the limbic system.
Each time Moon Panda have featured there has been something different about the set-up. Initially a US based duo in 2016, an England based duo last year, now a trio, though still based in England – the consistency has always been the quality of the output and its dreamy demeanour which gently flows around the listener.
A live version of One Feather, the middle of the eleven tracks on the LP More Nothing, surfaced recently and showcases their combinations of atmospheric undercurrent, mesmeric vocal and imaginative guitar.
A trio with a fast growing fan base and a band I look forward to hearing more from in short order.
The English blues-rock creator David Ford released the single Real Damn Slow on the 27th of April and will be releasing the LP Animal Spirits on the 11th.
As posited on the tin Real Damn Slow is a curling, gnarly drifting track that unhurriedly wraps the listener in its beguiling whisky rasped vocal and gliding riffs that pulls to mind a ramshackle bar in a deserted town evoking reminders of times gone by still held in fond memory.
A track that invites the audience to kick-up their heels and allow the roughly four and a sixth minutes of Real Damn Slow to take over plans for the rest of day, with a tumbler of spirit to hand.
The Italian darkgaze trio Stella Diana release the LP 57 on the 25th.
A couple of songs have arisen from the album (which is available on bandcamp) the antepenultimate of the eleven being the bowed strings infused Der Sandmann which casts their signature brooding shadow through the speakers and attests to a release which will be worth grabbing hold of later in the month.
