It was back in August of last year the US experimental-jazz collaboration of Ruby Jubilee was introduced with a suggestion that an LP was soon to be released.
After some little delay the eponymous LP surfaced on the 20th. A ten track, approximately thirty four minutes release, of smooth textures that keeps the listener connected is perhaps appropriately opened by the track Lost And Found.
Assorted Pleasures is a summerhaze outfit from Australia.
With half a dozen songs to hear I am looking forward to Assorted Pleasures packaging them and a few more all together in to one release to take down to a beach party and add to the breaking dawn selections as the soft brushes of lofidelity float through the ears.
The most recent song to surface being the quirky Blonde.
A live rendition of the song Blue Coupe has recently been made available and is a reminder as to why they are not strangers with the soft curling tones wrapping the audience in an all embracing sense of togetherness.
The alternative rock quartet St. Tropez from the Netherlands will be launching a new LP on the 1st of May from 18:00 to 20:00 (CEST) at what will be their pop-up studio in one of the units at Lil ‘Amsterdam – Amstelpassage – on the East side of Amsterdam Central Station.
Three songs have surfaced from the album with The Other and its fibrous tautology being my pick of those I am able to share.
A roughly seventeen minutes, four track, EP of worrisome wistful introspection that captures the imagination and lifts the audience in to their own reflections of loss.
As is so often the case with melancholic and reflective music, rather than being left with a sense of hopelessness despite having been drawn in to dark folds in the memory, the listener leaves with a sense of catharsis having shared a moment with another to explore the past and see a future with a brighter light.
The opening song, In The Eaves, being my pick of the release.
