The Sydney (Australia) gaze-rock quartet of Sophie McComish (Guitar /Vocals), Annabel Blackman (Guitar /Vocals), Georgia Wilkinson-Derums (Bass / Vocals), Cecil Coleman (Drums) who form the band Body Type will be releasing their eponymous LP on the 19th of October.
The interwoven guitars wrap around the listener like a cashmere jacket in a luxurious thread of washed echoing reverb, while the pressing bass holds the architecture in taut reign with drum pushing along the pace, giving the songs their infectious tempo as vocal, with its judicious mix of one or multiple voices, creates a smokey haze that compliments the guitars.
Palms is the second of the six songs on the album, which is available on bandcamp.
The quartet of Rory, Jay, Luke and Wes from Melbourne in Australia who form the garage band Diana Radar released the single Growing on the 13th.
A track best enjoyed with a beer in a crowded bar, as the quartet deliver their good time rock’n’roll, which brightens the day by its very presence.
The bright guitars sparkle through the song, like a sequined dress, as the high pitches flicker through the ears, while the drum, which plays on tautly strung skins adds to the sharpness of the architecture which in turn affords space and time for the laid-back bass and sliding vocal to create the infectious dynamism of Growing.
Spreading a net over vagaries of societal and environmental iniquities the EP (available on bandcamp) has a breadth of texture in the five tracks as thoughts turn to reflections which are both of personal and collective notation.
The darkness of each of the songs, leaves a menacing threat hanging over the head of the listener which is poised to befall on those who don’t acquiesce to the tropes of subservient acceptance of the mindless diktats of the world order of the 21st Century.
The Australian garage rock duo The Gooch Palms released their latest single Marfa Lights on the 30th of August.
The Gooch Palms
It is of little surprise their audience continues to burgeon as their good-time rock shimmers through the speakers and showers over the listener making the world seem a better place.
Securing both their own headline tours and support tours across Australia it is long over due their schedule was expanded to regular international appearances. The new single, Marfa Lights, with its buzzing static electricity can only but help to raise their profile further.
