Just Another Day Of (Pack)aging is their most ambitious track and showcases a band who are unafraid to try out new ideas – most importantly the new ideas Tin Can Telescope try often seem to result in their best work to date – this being no exception as the bristling energy of their earlier work is retained, whilst the layering of the track and its duration of a tad under seven minutes, allows them to explore more fully the contexts of the song and the end result evidencing of a quartet who have the potential of much more to offer the world of music and I look forward to continuing to follow their development.

A couple of songs have surfaced from the album (available on bandcamp) the most recent of which The Boat , which will be the third of the ten compositions, is scheduled for release as a stand alone single today (also available on bandcamp).
Houses Of The Sun makes a welcome follow-up to the 2012 LP No Windows To The Old World, having, on the basis of the two songs, a similar dark shadowing that seeps in to the room along with wide surface area to the material, though with an occluded front of electronica which creates a sense of turbulence and hidden menace.
The Danish deathmetal quartet Thorium release the LP Blasphemy Awakes on the 1st of June.
Formed at the tail end of the last century Thorium have been away for a while, though, as discovered in Penance, the second of the dozen tracks on the forthcoming album, none of their speed has been lost over the years.
A live version of One Feather, the middle of the eleven tracks on the LP More Nothing, surfaced recently and showcases their combinations of atmospheric undercurrent, mesmeric vocal and imaginative guitar.
A trio with a fast growing fan base and a band I look forward to hearing more from in short order.
The Danish, Sweden based, trippy-rock project Black Light White Light released the LP Horizons on the 23rd.

The first of the eleven tracks on the album, King Kong, slowly fills the room with a hazy-pall of psychedelic washes of colour as the fuzzy guitar leads the way for the synth to gradually unfurl while the gauzed vocal sweeps in and out of focus.
