The German agit-folk creator Harry Gump released the EP Waterfront on the 1st.
A five track release, (available on bandcamp) Waterfront, as in common with all music previously featured since introduction in 2014 reflects of a frustration and sadness that the world is so wrapped up in facile divisions that it is inevitably everyone who suffers delivered by easily measured guitar and distinctive style that is the hallmark of the music if Harry Gump.
The second song is Nichts Weiter which also features Niki Minipax.
The German sadcore project Laura Carbone releases the LP Empty Sea on the 1st of June.

An approximately forty one minutes, ten track, album of luxuriant melancholia which tenderly brushes through the tensor tympani leaving the listener enveloped in a satiating glow of mellow, haunting melodies.
The first track to be revealed from the LP, which is the seventh, is Tangering Tree.
Almost exactly a year since their last release, which was also a AA single, on the 21st the Germany based ethereal-wave duo 2 by bukowski release Follow You Home / Fiend For Sleep.
2 by bukowski with Kid Moxie
In a further common thread with last years release one of the tracks is in collaboration with the USA based Kid Moxie.
There the similarity ends as the reveal this year is of dreamy texture as identified in the first of the two songs to surface – Follow You Home, which is available on bandcamp, which filters through the speakers in a flow of drifting frequencies and resplendent vocal.
Kraków Loves Adana were introduced last year with the track American Boy from the album, which is available on bandcamp.
Songs After The Blue is a mesmerising approaching half an hour, eight track release and is well worth adding to the collection – my pick of the release is the fragile and aptly named closer – Naked World – with its ghostly piano led melancholia that seeps in to the marrow-bone.
