The South Korean based electro-alt-rock project Grey Watson released the single Love Is Good, Its #1 yesterday.
More typically releasing music of less optimistic feel Love Is Good, Its #1 is an electro-washed celebration of all the positives of love without being either a slushy fest of ‘new love’ nor an exposition of long term relationships – rather an upbeat statement of principal.
The almost pragmatic starting point of perspective enables the song to have both a feel-good vibe, whilst retain a depth of sonic structure as guitars and electronica weave through each other. The vocal spinning in and out of focus and tempo changes gives the track a vaguely retro funk-groove underbelly.
The Indian slofi trio Nilein revealed the song Central Park on the 25th.
This is another one of those moments when me being late to an email, on this occasion from April of last year, has borne fruit with new material, therefore an apology for not getting to older material sooner.
Central Park slips slowly in to earshot as it peers tentatively out of the speakers, minding of a dormouse wandering in to a potential spot in which to hibernate and spotting some comfortable nesting and busying itself building a bed prior to quietly resolving into slumber merely a tad over three minutes later, yet hypnotically engrossing the audience with its tentative and careful footstep though the course of the fleeting moments of its activity.
The Japanese celtic-folk band Harmonica Creams release the LP Stereotype on the 28th of March.
The first song to surface is the second of the ten on the album – Thirtyy Ears – an instrumental number which showcases their always intriguing blend of celtic-folk with influences from both Southern-blues and the more local traditions to deliver music which is a superlative fusion and east and west.
