On the 18th they released, as a standalone single, Yeux Turquoise.

An approximately three and a half minutes luxurious wave of spectral vocal, silken electronica and keys that warps around the listener is the listener in softly whisked creamy layers.

C Duncan – Impossible – Audio

The Scottish alt-rock multi-instrumentalist C Duncan will be releasing the LP Health on the 29th of March.

With a step change from previous material, Health, the third album emerges away from a home studio to work with other producers, engineers and musicians, which paradoxically has allowed the LP to explore, to a far greater extent, more personal aspects of life and affords the music a more emotional tie to the audience as the songs contemplate, love, health and sexuality.

The first track to surface from the album, Impossible (released as a stand-alone single yesterday), which is the third of the dozen tracks is a contrast of jaunty, trotting, instrumentation that has a spaghetti western feel laid to a, melancholic, lyrical reflection of a long distance relationship with a former boyfriend.

Impossible – Single – C Duncan is available on iTunes.*

Black Leather Jacket – Village People – Video

Occasionally it makes sense to have everyone singing in chorus and with Black Leather Jacket – it most certainly does as the listener finds themselves joining in too with the first track to surface, from what I anticipate to be an LP for party night, Village People – filling the room with a joyful unornamented buzz of good-time energy… where did setting eleven go on the volume dial?

We Three Kings – Give It To Me, GO! – Single Review

The Manchester (England) rock trio of Rich (Guitars / Vocals), Pete (Drums / Vocals) and Paul (Bass) who form the band We Three Kings revealed the track Give it to me, GO! a couple of hours ago.

An uncluttered two and two thirds minutes of brit-blues rock’n’roll that fires out of the speakers like a ball of fuzzy energy which infects all those it touches and has the listener jamming their head between blasting speakers lost in the wave of warming nostalgia.

Give It To Me, GO! is a welcome follow up to the EP Fire, which came out eleven months ago.

Give It to Me, Go! – We Three Kings is available on iTunes.*

Norvhar – Fest In Midgard – Audio

The celtic-metal sextet of Matt (Vocals), Nicolas (Guitar), Tristan (Keyboard), Guillaume (Guitar), Matthieu (Bass) and Axel (Drums), from Lausanne (Switzerland), who form the band Norvhar will be releasing their début LP Kauna on the 16th of February.

Released as a standalone single today (available on bandcamp) – Fest In Midgard -, which is the second single to appear from Kauna, opens to a quiet strumming in to which the mind prepares for a softly laid celtic ballad only for the scabrous vocal to hurtle though the speakers, immediately cloaking the room in a bewitching Nordic folk-tale of legendary battles in dark forests.
