The South African garage rocker Elle E releases the LP Etiquette on the 21st.
Casting a scornful look at the mores of societal construct Elle E delivers, in Etiquette (available on bandcamp), a sardonic, sarcastic, sideswipe at the self-satisfied smugness of suburban lifestyle.
A project that has build a momentum of its own without any initial expectation other than a means to exorcise frustrations with the world around, Elle E has found a ready and enthusiastic audience which can only be enhanced by the eight track album.
An LP I highly recommend grabbing hold of and enjoy from first note to last – making the opener – London Paris New York Berlin – which minds of The Chiffons, as good a place to start as any.

The Medicine Dolls, a new wave trio from South Africa, released the LP Lost Love Lullabies on the 2nd.
The Medicine Dolls
A group of musicians who evidently enjoy creating and performing music with new songs frequently being revealed along with regular touring schedules and one off gigs in South Africa, if justice be served they will find slots on the international stage opening up for them very soon as theirs is music that travels globally.
Lost Love Lullabies introduces some stronger melody to various tracks, whilst loosing none of the exuberant joie de vivre that is their hallmark sound. Each time I pick up on a song of theirs I, like an excited puppy playing with a squeaky toy, find myself hurtling around the room in yelps of delight.
From the six track album – the second – Sick Of Anesthetic.

The South African newwave trio The Medicine Dolls have featured regularly since first appearing last year.
The Medicine Dolls – Kiss Kiss Kill Me
The newest track, which surfaced this week, Kiss Kiss Kill Me exemplifies why their music always resonates with me as the carefree abandon of uncomplicated guitar, throbbing bass, congealed vocal and flailing drum hurtles around the room merely asking of the listener to join in on the dance floor in any angulation of limbs preferred and passing no thought to it, merely delight that the audience is taking part in the party.
Turn up the volume, clear floor-space, hit play and thresh with the music that pours through the ears.
