Gena Perala – Lucky One – Video

It has been a few years since the Canadian musician Gena Perala last featured.

Word arrives that work is underway for a new triphop LP, therefore you will readily identify this country-rock live performance of the new track Lucky One isn’t going to be on that album – however, regular readers will also know I am a sucker for certain instruments – slide guitar being one…

The first track to surface from the eight song album, Sex Scene, which will be the fifth on the full release, was made available yesterday as a stand alone single (available on bandcamp).

The gnarly electronica twists out of the speakers in contorted knots while instrumentation spreads a shadowy presence through the room from which looms a menacing, pervasive vocal that transfixes the mind in its overpowering presence.

Karolina Rose – Going To Berlin – Single Review

The US sultrywave creator Karolina Rose released the single Going To Berlin today.

Sometimes sounds, moments and names all make some sort of collective unified line of comprehensibility.

I have heard numerous songs by Karolina Rose, though have always been able to not get to the emails in a timely fashion while thinking on each occasion – this is music straight out of Berlin – is Karolina Rose really in the USA?

Therefore it was with some delight to receive an email with notification of Going To Berlin, thinking – about time too. However, rather than a physical relocation to the natural territory of the environs of Berghain the song ponders the process…

Rosa Maria – Howlin’ – Single Review

The Australian rock’n’roll quintet Rosa Maria released the single Howlin’ today.

First releasing music just over a year ago, the quintet have balanced between releasing new songs whilst building a live performance presence and have proven adept at both, with a feed of new songs for those of us not near enough to get to see them live while continually expanding their live performance radius to ensure more of us will become within range.

A breadth of different styles can be heard in their music, on occasion trippy, other times surfy garage though always with a slightly retrospective air and always with a twinkling footstep that invites the audience on to the dance floor.

Howlin’ (available on bandcamp) takes the listener back to ’50s rock’n’roll…

Dinosaur 94 – Elephant Dreams – Single Review

The Scottish alt-rock quintet, Dinosaur 94, released the single Elephant Dreams yesterday.

Dinosaur 94

Having only come to fruition roughly a year ago Dinosaur 94 are, understandably, still honing their core sound with each of the handful of songs I have been able to hear having a slightly different flavour. References of fuzzy framework and merseybeat, along side the new track Elephant Dream – which is of more punchy bluesy new wave root-stock that, inevitably, as longer stay readers will anticipate is also my preference – compounded by a throbbing bass which introduces the listener to the almost five and a half minutes composition.

I look forward to hearing more by Dinosaur 94 who are self-evidently a talented group of song songwriters and musicians.
