Band of the Month – May 2018 – Readers’ Choice

With some fortune over here in the UK summer will perhaps finally make its entrance as May closes  – despite my enjoyment for the gloomier sounds musically I do quite like warm summer days – the Readers’ Choice for Band of the month, conversely, being from Tasmania is heading towards winter and an excellent idea that they have decided to release a new LP to warm up the chill of the months ahead…

Time For Dreams – You’ve Got A Friend – Single Review

The Australian sultrywave duo Time For Dreams release their latest track You’ve Got A Friend on the 16th of June.

Time For Dreams

Time For Dreams

Don’t even think of hitting play unless you are comfortably twined limbs around a partner to fully allow the soft caresses of You’ve Got A Friend to coil around the torso as the luxuriant oils massage between one another.

The only misery is that the foreplay lasts for a margin under five minutes laying in its undulating and warm teasing which promises of what it to come, as the allure of the suspenseful vocal slides through the unctions of the synthesis – play it softly but do play it on loop.

Voidhood – Gillotine – Single Review

The Australian downtempo project Voidhood released the latest single Gillotine on the 25th.

Voidhood

Voidhood

Rumbling through the speakers as though a primal beasty of nefarious nature, Gillotine (available on bandcamp), equally evolves in to a tune of swarthy brass filled annotation and the listener finds themselves astern of a buccaneering vessel whilst simultaneously transported to a quiet and exclusive café on the Sorbonne sipping cocktails with a jazz band playing in the backdrops as a refinement to chattering voices vaguely heard in the ether as the two lifestyles collide in to a melange of polar opposites, yet the audience is not left feeling all at sea with the construct.

Gaspar Sanz – Scene Of The Crime – Video

Gaspar Sanz is a smooth-groove quintet from Australia.

Not, by any means, the most usual of sounds to feature on the site though something I do feel adds to the weave of the day despite, or perhaps because of, its slippery progressions.

Either way their latest song, Scene Of The Crime, which was released earlier in the month has an infectious vibe that has even the most cynical of feet moving with the groove.

A musician who always creates songs of creamy synthesised intrigue hence why a stalwart of the site since introduction in 2014 and on the basis of the songs I have heard from Sleepwalking (available on bandcamp) the full release seems set to be one to add to the collection with some urgency.

The most recent track to surface, the second of the eleven on the album is Boombox Serenade.
