Whilst in comparison to much of the back catalogue I Need You is of more optimistic demeanour that is merely a factor of contextual relativity.

The luxurious palette consists of hues of deep crimson, rich purple and dark navy with the intricate melodies and immersive vocal sinking deep in to the bone marrow filling the body with an intoxicating warmth leaving the listener with no sense of an outside world.

The only downside is that I Need You is all over within a mere one hundred and seventy eight seconds leaving the audience immediately desirous of more.

Apologies, once again, despite this hanging around in my email inbox since the 8th I have only just caught the news of an album which came out earlier this month, once again I am late.

The ten track LP, Mama Pancake (available on bandcamp) is a more complete and rounded sound than their earlier introduction, though of similar sad countenance with the listener captivated by the slowly drifting melodies that fill the room with lingering notes that hang in the air like hazy regretful memories.

Many Minds, the third song, being my pick of the release.

45. – Godspeed – Single Review

It was heading towards two years ago that the Bradford (England) trio of Craig (Vocals / Guitar), Chris (Guitar) and Matt (Bass) who form the core of the rock band 45. last featured. On the 17th they released the three track single – Godspeed.

45.

The extended gap is not a reflection of lack of new material, rather my own inabilities to keep up to date, later than deserved, an update.

The three tracks on the single (available on bandcamp) are each of different texturing.

The opening track – It’s Got Soul is a dark buffered composition which has the listener investigating to ascertain if they have moving foundations as the pulsing bass / drum combinations rumble through the speakers.

My pick of the release – Glorywalk – is a more emotional and empathetic treatise of a tautly strung lead guitar and snare drum which gives the piece something of a marching anthemic to it, though as the song progresses, in to earshot swims Puducherry cultural influences.

The closer and the title song, Godspeed, is a bright and breezy country-blues influenced rock composition, which appropriately links back to their americana-rock introduction.

Slugging bass and drums launch through the speakers in the seventh of the dozen tracks – World Stand Still – with the listener anticipating a high energy heavy-metal number to burst through the room only for Puppy to slow the track to what the ears attune to be a 45 rpm record playing at 33 ⅓, though rather than feeling short changed the mind swiftly attunes and revels in the laid back heavy-rock rhythms.

A little late to this, apologies to everyone, the début LP (available on bandcampLocal Guide was released earlier in the month.

A roughly twenty eight minutes, ten track, album that takes the listener to the dark foreboding gabbro walls of The Cuillins looming overlooking the highland clearances of Allt Coire Lagan as the mystical, forlorn compositions fill the room with their gloomy noises-off.

Dog Violet is the third track.
