Scrambled Limbs – Rainmaker Struggle – Audio

Scrambled Limbs is an English trippy-rock project.

Whilst musicians creating psychedelic influenced music are, in general, underpinned by a sense of good-feelings and journey in to expansive thought, Scrambled Limbs is able to take that – not such good a trip – and turn it in to an eight track, roughly three quarters of an hour LP – Portmanteau (available on bandcamp) – exploring insecurities and anxieties, with a deft skill, as, rather than leaving the listener raked with inner turmoil, the mind finds a quiet pleasure in the what could easily have become a journey of despair.

My pick of a release that once started on the opening song the listener finds the need to continue to listen to without disturbance, until its conclusion – is the fifth – Rainmaker Struggle.

Ivory Waves – Cool Kids – Single Review

The English indie-rock quintet Ivory Waves released the single Cool Kids on the 16th.

Ivory Wave

Creating music which melts funk-rock with ’90s britpop and delivering music for the ’10s  with a positive celebration of life and optimism the future, something many people need to do more often, marks out their defining characteristic.

As the first notes of Cool Kids emerge from the speakers, even the most jaded cynic finds their serotonin levels rising and a good mood sweeping through their mind.

Having rapidly established a local reputation for good time live performances their name is spreading more widely and the release of Cool Kids, which is supported by a six date England tour, can only accelerate their broader visibility.

The English alt-rock band The Mouth Of Ghosts are finalising details for a new EP.

The Mouth Of Ghosts - Tonight

The Mouth Of Ghosts

Originally featured in 2012, shortly thereafter The Mouth Of Ghosts disappeared until reappearing in 2015 with a new release – after a further three years in the shadows Tonight is the first track to surface from the forthcoming EP and once again showcases why they are always a welcome addition as the brooding darkness looms in to the room.

Sulky Boy

An intriguing track which distills emo, maths-rock and indie-dance in to a tasty concoction of elongated vocal, angular guitar and springing drum combinations yet rather than  becoming confused the listener finds themselves tapping alongside while gazing wistfully out in to the middle-distance.

Leisure Tank – HIGHER – Single Review

The England based, German retro-garage duo Leisure Tank released the single HIGHER on the 14th.

Leisure Tank

Leisure Tank

The framework of HIGHER (available on bandcamp) is built on the back of a scratchy guitar which gives the song it retrospective analogue sound. Percussion snickers in the background as it skips in freeform akin to a spring-lamb while the guitar weaves between the fuzzy glitch and warm melodies embracing the alluring vocal that reaches out to the audience with a teasing biting bottom lip.

It has been a couple of years since Leisure Tank last revealed new recorded material, I merely hope it isn’t until 2020 they next surface.
