The Canadian electro-dance project Melotika released the LP Unaware on the 9th.
An intriguing eight track album, which offers songs of very different dimension and flow. Sections of the album are more user friendly than others and by necessity it is those moments of quirkiness that drew me to an album in a genre that very rarely features.
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 Canadian dream-rock project Twilight Fields released the LP Our Time Is Now on the 15th.
Regularly featuring since being introduced 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 room is filled by luxurious atmospheric waves of synth, instrumentation and shadowy vocal as Scattered Clouds deliver, in 5xx (available on bandcamp), a six minutes reveal of two distinct elements with the brooding title track being joined by the retrospective B side – America – which minds the listener of Kraftwerk.
The England based Canadian coldwave project of Chloé Raunet – C.A.R. – releases the LP PINNED on the 16th.
Surfacing from the album (available on bandcamp) within the past few hours, Swaggart, the seventh of the eleven tracks, casts a foreboding beauty to the room – much like watching supercell clouds building in a sunlit day with the multitude of colours refracted by the light through the condensing, hailstone forming, water droplets whilst storing charged electrical pulses set to roar overhead as the ever spiraling architecture builds towards the troposphere – yet far from phased by the warning the listener finds themselves transfixed by the formulation of the imperious exquisite shapes.
