The Canadian tripwave band SUUNS release the LP Felt on the 2nd of March.
In the third of the eleven tracks on the album, which is available on bandcamp – Watch You, Watch Me – combinations of guitar and electronica scatter like colliding positively-charged lead-ions in the CERN LHC bursting in to fleeting waves of energy which disperse in to nothingness though leaving an expanding and palpable presence.
The US performance poet Jerry Quickley released the LP (american) FOOL on the 16th.
Always hard-hitting in commentary, with particular insight of war-zones and the effect on the local population having been a news-reporter out in Iraq in 2003 which led him on the road of delivering the message of the reality of the brutality of conflict through the medium of music.
(american) FOOL (available on bandcamp) features the beats and production by the US rapper Busdriver to deliver a ten track LP of acerbic commentary of a home country tearing itself apart set to a glitchy soundtrack, which gives the roughly thirty four minutes release a dystopian temperament.
The Canadian dream-rock project Twilight Fields released the LP Our Time Is Now on the 15th.
Regularly featuring since being introducuced in 2016 the album (available on bandcamp) finds a less melancholic mood than much of the material previously featured, though still of contemplative narrative.
The eleven track, roughly fifty six minutes, LP reflects on the value of close relationships in a world which is becoming ever more fractured.

The music washes through the room to invite the listener on a journey of mysterious shadows and spectral imagery as echoing guitars, dreamy synth, diffused percussion and hypnotic hazy vocal form an intangible, yet manifest, presence as the four track (plus one live version song) EP (available on bandcamp) runs it course.
The US funk-rock project of Pat Deeney – Muttering Oaks – releases the LP Something About Sunsets on the 2nd of March.
The first track to surface from the album, #4, was revealed last week. A winding cohesion of a soaring and swooping guitar blended around the vocal in a song tipped with latin dance and southern blues which finds the body accompanying the rhythm.
