Dancing On Tables

Having fast grown an audience with their user friendly tunes, in Colour Me Good the quintet have challenged themselves to work within a slightly different sphere, while not wishing to alienate their existing fanbase and have been able to transition successfully.

Their earlier catalogue I find a little featherweight of texture and stay for my personal taste, though ideal to penetrate the radio market they were aiming to secure. Colour Me Good, while still music for easy moments has more depth and a less formulaic structure affording the song a more natural flow and a measure of connectivity making for a release I do recommend adding to the birthday bash playlist.

Whether this marks a slightly new direction for the quintet or a one-off foray- time will tell.

A melting weave of electronica and instrumentation floats through the room in intoxicating waves as the alluring, imploring vocal teases the audience with its breathy rhythmic layers in a thirteen track album which lifts the listener through space and time to Montparnasse as flicking jazz, husky blues and café-culture soothe-groove seep in to the mind.

The title track and opener is Somehow, a song which sets the backdrop to the LP.

The lengthy compositions – which combined come to roughly seventy two minutes (available on bandcamp – proceeds are being donated to the medical fundraiser – Carries Fund) are best approached while in a darkened room to allow the unhurried, relentless entombing foreboding presence to encase the mind and body.

The opening track, which lasts for nearly forty two minutes is the title – Thor’s Womb.

Dinosaur 94 – Elephant Dreams – Single Review

The Scottish alt-rock quintet, Dinosaur 94, released the single Elephant Dreams yesterday.

Having only come to fruition roughly a year ago Dinosaur 94 are, understandably, still honing their core sound with each of the handful of songs I have been able to hear having a slightly different flavour. References of fuzzy framework and merseybeat, along side the new track Elephant Dream – which is of more punchy bluesy new wave root-stock that, inevitably, as longer stay readers will anticipate is also my preference – compounded by a throbbing bass which introduces the listener to the almost five and a half minutes composition.

I look forward to hearing more by Dinosaur 94 who are self-evidently a talented group of song songwriters and musicians.

I have noticed over the years that US southern country holds an influence over more than a smattering of the Scottish bands and musicians featured along with others who send over their music for consideration – an intriguing conundrum.

Nonetheless often extremely capably delivered and Sinny adds to that list with latest two track single Running Away, which was released last week, my pick of which is the B side Look Who’s Crying Now.
