Though there has been a steady stream of new material surfacing, more recently the frequency of single releases has become ever more rapid-fire.

The most recent, which was released on the 3rd (available on bandcamp), Raash is an instrumental piece that has the similarity of the dystopian oppression that is threaded through all the catalogue.

Young Galaxy – Backwards Love – Audio

The Montreal (Canada) based dreamwave duo of Catherine McCandless and Stephen Ramsay performing as Young Galaxy released their swansong three track single Snow Leopard yesterday.

As though sculpted from sand the compositions have a scooped granular texture of finest detail, which the further removed from the speakers takes on ever softer ambient flow in to which the mind becomes bewitched.

The approximately eighteen minutes single is available on bandcamp with my pick of the release being, perhaps appropriately, the closing track – Backwards Love.

Although this is the end of the road after a dozen years, the duo do anticipate creating music together in the future, though of different guise and performance name, as well as exploring other opportunities separately.

Wandering through the back catalogue of material the listener is given to a sense of a quartet who would be at home in a dusty saloon-bar on the Chisholm Trail, as a welcoming site for a night around the campfire and reminisce of times long past.

As a very early indicator of what to expect on the forthcoming album the rock’n’roll number Night Rider surfaced a couple of days ago.

A couple of tracks have surfaced from the album, which preface of a ten song release (available on bandcamp) that has a brooding power which looms out of the speakers casting a dominating presence through the room.

Marie Davidson is also known as one half of both the duo line-ups of Essaie Pas and DKMD with solo releases being less frequent – Working Class Woman being the follow up to the dystopia of the 2014 album Perte d’identité.

Work It – is the second song on the LP.

Bringing a different and more refined set of tools from music previously featured, in You Can Tell Because The Quantum Cat Version Has An Origami Face (a fifteen track album available on bandcamp) the compositions are intricately woven textures that wrap the listener in a mélange of almost organic shifting shapes and lifts them on a journey of imaginative experimental phantasmagoria.

The oriental tradition inspired Burst The Chrysanthemum is the fourth piece.
