The England based synth-rock outfit BC Camplight releases the LP Deportation Blues on the 24th.
Last featured in 2015, the reason being living in a world of dystopian catch-22 Brian Christinzio was deported from the UK to his birth country of the USA after the release of the last LP How To Die In The North – for the past two years life has been taken up with battling bureaucracy. By taking Italian citizenship through family ties Brian now has the right to be in the UK – though with the UK leaving the EU – how long that may last is anyone’s guess.
There is something of a dark irony that the three countries in question each dislike immigrants as much as each other – which leads to the new album – Fire In England being the penultimate of the nine tracks.
The Italian indie-rock sextet Cemetery Drive released the single 2 AM on the 13th.
Links between emo, metal, and indie-dance are forged in to a comprehensible output by the sextet in 2 AM to deliver a song that settles kindly on the ears despite the juxtapositions of root source influences.
Closing out the first half of what has been, so far, a year of superb new music that has wandered across my desk The Editors’ Choice For Band Of The Month for June. My thanks to all music creatives, whether our paths ever cross or not, you do make the world a better place.
The Italian rock band Capolinea 24 released their début single I’m Ready To Go on the 21st.
Having cut their teeth as an acoustic rock covers duo I’m Ready To Go, which signposts of their début, nine track, LP Lost In Tales which is due for release later this year and is their first reveal of an original song as a plugged-in quartet, trots through the room on a Southern Blues horse.
