Jannick Brochdorf (Vocal), Niels Alex Larsen (Lead Guitar / Vocal), Lars Ulrik Le Fevre (Guitar / Vocal), Martin Poulsen (Bass) and Daniel Nielsen (Drums) from Copenhagen (Denmark) who form the rock band Statement are finalising details for a forthcoming LP.
The track I Wonder Why, from the forthcoming album, was also made available as a standalone single on the 19th.
The opening phrases set the listener on to a heavy-metal mindset as guitar sets up the anticipated thunderous roar, only for Statement to take the listener on a completely different direction of travel by revealing a tempered rock ballad in to which the audience quickly settles as the quintet deliver a song with both passages of tenderness as well as furious pace all within the framework of their signature sound of multilayered texturing.
On the 5th the Copenhagen (Denmark) psychedelic quartet Emil Thorenfeldt, Frederik Denning, Kasper Andersen and Rasmus Christensen known as Mythic Sunship release the LP – Another Shape of Psychedelic Music.
An hour and a quarter of expanded hallucinogenic meanderings warp their way through the six track album (available via El Paraiso Records), an LP which does demand plenty of time to be able fully and usefully contemplate prior to going anywhere near the play button.
The compositions thread experimentalism with stacked layers of texturing to create an engrossing ambient journey of sound in to which the audience is invited to allow themselves to explore, in free-form, underused elements of the imagination.
The second track is Backyard Ritual – those who know the band will be struck, immediately, by the infusion of saxophone which enables Mythic Sunship to take their compositions in to even greater reaches than previous material.
The Germany based electronica duo Actual Figures will be releasing the EP Good Wuck Wif Yr Stwuggles on the 1st of November.
The duo of Marie Mark Andersen from Denmark and Brandon Davis from the USA bring a wide net of influences to their music which is reflected in the variety of the output, which stretches from ambient to overpowering, yet always of primordial resolution and societal commentary.
The first song to surface from the forthcoming EP is the glitchy-techno track – Slave.
The Danish atmospheric-folk outfit Death Machine are finalising details for the release of the LP Isle Of Mine.
The first track to surface from the album is the title track Isle Of Mine which was, itself, made available as a standalone single on bandcamp on the 14th.
The track is pivoted around a rolling sequence of ever expanding curls which spread through the room creating a sense of a soundtrack for settling in to a planetarium gazing at the imagery of the universe.
On the 1st the Danish hazewave project Mai Miyako released the EP Second Release.
The four tracks on Second Release are themed around relationship emotions of love, jealously, insecurity and anger giving the EP something of an introspective melancholia.
Songs are pinned around differing instrumentation, which enhances the mood, with piano, synth and guitar variously taking primacy, my pick of the release being the penultimate and merseybeat influenced – Show Me – which collapses in to its own insecurities in conclusion.
