The German dark-electro project Neon Insects releases the LP Glitches on the 16th of February.
Neon Insect – L.L.t.Q. (f. Leæther Strip)
A slight step away from the normal fare of Neon Insect, which tends to be video game dystopian soundtrack, Glitches is an album, (available on bandcamp) created as a standalone release and overall more gothic darkness than intense compression in temperament.
The second of the eight songs L.L.t.Q. features the Danish electronic body music creator Leæther Strip with a deeply anchored bass surging through the room.
The Danish atmospheric-rock quintet Mom & Bear released the single Everybody Wants You Dead on the 8th.
Mom & Bear
Despite having been around for a few years Mom & Bear are yet to release their début LP – though word has arrived that this project is underway with the title Bury You Dead and Everybody Wants You Dead (available on bandcamp) which has been lingering in the vaults for a while is the first song to surface from the album.
Layers of guitars, keys, bass, percussion and vocal wrap around the listener akin to gently placed swabs as the delight of the composition lays not only in its dark brooding presence it is equally by the shadowy nature of the music that drifts as though a Brocken Spectre emerging through the clouds in the valley below seen from high on a mountain.
The Danish garage-rock quartet Tin Can Telescope released the single Scorch Your Face today.

Scorch Your Face (available on bandcamp) is a thumping rock’n’roll number that has the audience delightedly dancing around the room as a thrubbing bass bounces against the spring percussion with guitar skipping through the ears and the vocal, which spins through the ears rounding out a song that sadly only lasts for two and two thirds minutes.
Having had the opportunity to listen to their back catalogue I can attest this is a band to bring out to play anytime life needs an injection of positive energy.
The Danish dystopian-industrial-wave project urall.me is set to release the début LP wat.r is free imminently.
On hitting play on the fifth of the eleven tracks – thesign – the listener is undecided upon which direction to run as an all encompassing plunger splurges out of the speakers sucking all, akin to a tsunami, as it engulfs the room and leaving merely water in its wake and revealing, as the sounds recede, unmitigated destruction in the lee of its wake which promptly settles in unconcerned balmy sunlight water, leaving the audience to pick up their own scattered pieces of their lives.
