The Northern Irish / English rockabilly duo Colt 66 released the AA side two track single Stranger Today / Spectres Relaxing on the 6th.
The familiar grumbling scowl of consternation peers from the speakers in Spectres Relaxing before launching itself into the room in a flurry of hurtled brothel creepers which has the listener immediately two stepping in unity. The gravelled vocal scours the ears whilst the fuzzy guitar caresses the lobes as the pulsing percussion shoots darts to the floor ensuring feet are lifted in quick-time and in the same glare as arrived so the just under three and a quarter minute track balefully crumples back out of the room leaving the listener braying for more.
One can only hope it isn’t another gap of approaching year and half before Colt 66 find the time to create a follow up to Stranger Today / Spectres Relaxing (available on bandcamp) and we can both find a reason to one again lace up the red suede shoes.

The latest track to surface – HUNTER – is a brooding combination of electronic and instrumental experimentalism that drifts menacingly around the room, riven through with cracked bells flatly pealing in alarm.

From the EP Kiss That Wealth Goodbye – the second of the four tracks – Place Your Bets.
exmagician pour smoky layers through the minimal use of instrumentation. Yet, are able to take the audience on an entrancing trip around the mind as they utilise extensive echo, reverb and delay giving the guitar a feeling that it is winding around itself. The open spaces of the percussion gives Place Your Bets its airy feel as the blurred vocal gently drifts around the ears.
