Those of longer stay may recall the name Jay Draper from the band The Scarlet Fever, introduced in 2015. The other main collaborator on the project being Justin Minister from the band Amy’s Arms.

Whilst the single (available on bandcamp) is of similar style to their other projects, being combinations of natural instrumentation and synthesis, the music, perhaps unexpectedly given that the other environments being of gothic architecture, brings a slightly different soundtrack to the table.

My selection being Scatterbrain.

Three tracks exist, two of which surfaced a few hours ago and although it is only January – I am already transported to Summer in Ibiza.

Turn up the bass, flicker the lights and loose yourself in the deep grooves of a track that you can expect to hear frequently in clubs – Blue.

website (be aware music starts on a one minute loop immediately with no means to stop it other than – on Windows – right clicking the mouse then finding controls, pausing and then finally silence – other operating systems I am unable to advise)

With roots firmly ensconced in RnB and Soul, United Power Soul take the listener on a journey of deep grooves and funky highlights through the eight track album, which is available on bandcamp.

The LP, for me, is elevated by the inclusion of the dancehall antepenultimate track – Peace Sign.

The most recent collection of songs to be revealed  – man eating an avocado – is a nine track LP of electronic escarpments and whimsical lyric, which for its very quirkiness makes for an album, lasting approximately fifteen minutes, that keeps the listener attentive.

My pick of the release being the echoing chamber that is the closer – digesting it all.

Heavily influenced by ’60s and ’70s musicians a slew of new tracks has arisen within the past few days.

From the eclectic mix of material the track Attack Of Venus Nympho caught my attention and serves as an introduction to a musician I look forward to hearing much more from during the course of the year.
