Slightly over four and a third minutes Cassavetes (available on bandcamp) continues the theme of the only other track around Action At A Distance with its ever more pressing repetition of phrase, giving the guitar, electronics and percussion the sense of a stuttering loop, a technique which, akin to those who find the sound of screeching chalk either excruciating or a delight, will divide listeners in to those, such as myself, who are keen to hear more and those who will never be able to contemplate cartography with ease again.

All For Darcy – The View – Audio

The Australian alternative-rock quartet All For Darcy release the EP Too Beautiful For Earth tomorrow.

All For Darcy

All For Darcy

Five songs of emotive narrative play through the room in multi-textured layers of mellowed out rock, which is able to keep the audience engaged with its rich creamy flow. The second track – The View – being my pick of the release.

There’s too much – 生四 Farisa (the girl with the golden voice) – Audio

The Japanese based New Zealand ambient drone project There’s too much revealed the latest song 生四 Farisa (the girl with the golden voice) on the 4th.

There`s too much - 生四 Farisa (the girl with the golden voice)

There`s too much

Unlike previous material featured by There’s Too Much since introduction in 2013, 生四 Farisa (the girl with the golden voice), doesn’t fill the room with an oppressive dystopian darkness – though do bear in mind drone is never chirpy, it does however fill the room with a carrier signal which burrows deep in to the mind, extending for a margin under six and five sixths minutes.

The Silverbeets – And I/You Thought – Audio

The Tasmanian trippy-rock outfit The Silverbeets release the LP Stay Tuned on the 11th of June.

The Silverbeets - And I/You Thought

The Silverbeets

An eleven chapter album which plays akin to an anthology of short stories in its approaching one hours run-time. Though each song can be heard in isolation, Stay Tuned is best heard in one sitting to fully enjoy, thereby allowing the compositions to lace one in to the other, resulting in the mind meandering to explore its own outer-reaches whilst immersed in the multi-textured weave that resonates of the summer of love.



The further the album progresses, the deeper the listener becomes entranced by psychedelic wash of the softly flowing LP with the pulses of the brain slowing to an almost imperceptible flicker from which there is no desire to restart the clock on its conclusion.

It has been a couple of years since the The Silverbeets last featured and although I was made aware of a release in the offing, some little while ago, I was becoming less convinced the delay would be warranted – now having had the opportunity to listen to everything I fully understand why their own perception of time expanded. If it is another couple of years before the next reveal I will fully understand the rationale.

There is no typical song on Stay Tuned, though The Silverbeets will be releasing the second track And I/You Thought on the 1st of June in advance of the full release.

DEAF – TRUANCY – Audio

The New Zealand synth-rock quintet DEAF will be releasing their début and eponymous EP later in the year.

DEAF

DEAF

At present there is only one song around (available on bandcamp) which comes from the forthcoming release – TRUANCY.

There is a brooding darkness of overarching melancholia which drifts through the track which is counterbalanced by brightly lit vocal and glistening fret-board rotating around the two synths that holds a reference of retrospective to early Factory Records releases which enables the quintet to deliver a just over four and a half minutes reveal of haunting beauty and I look forward to hearing more in short order.

Those of sharper hearing may recognise the voice of Luke Kavanagh from the drone outfit Sunken Seas.
