An eight track album of deeply resonating droning instrumentation which seeps in to the cortex, with saxophone, giving the sense of disturbance, surrounded by sustained guitar, incessant percussion and quietly layered synthesis.

With their music reflective of a society in which the indigenous population have been marginalised and treated as interlopers through intended policies and objectives Divide And Dissolve is uncompromisomng in their aim to recalibrate priorities with their music being, intentionally, both challenging and confrontational.

The first song to be revealed – the second on the LP – Assimilation – signposts of a release to which I am looking forward.

Back in July I was sent an introduction and only now have I reached that email, though with fortune the LP You Do Not Do which was released this month (available on bandcamp), means I am almost current, though sadly once again I am once again a few days late to getting round to getting a feature written, my apologies to one and all.

A glorious revolution of synthesis drifts through the room to the accompaniment of sharply turned bass loops, extended guitar and electro-vocals resulting the listener is immediately minded of Sparks, as the audience articulates limbs akin to a retro velvet beaked nodding duck water-feature gizmo.

If, like me, you are in the Northern Hemisphere you can safely turn off the heating before hitting play as the warmth, from my pick of the release – the third of the eleven tracks on the album – Antifaxxers – permeates the room with the raising ambient warming temperature being palpably discernible.

The resulting track The Days, which was released earlier in the month, is an ambient luscious wave of piano, electronica, a sprinkling of guitar and a superlative voice which encircles the listener inside a warming cocoon of drifting silk and interspersing, though not overbearing, drops – affording the song an organic layering.
