𝕕𝕠𝕦𝕓𝕝𝕖 𝕖𝕩𝕡𝕖𝕣𝕚𝕖𝕟𝕔𝕖 concentrate on creating music which plays as a back drop commentary to RPG computer gaming and their latest track, Oh Listener Mine, (which was released on the 27th of April, holds specific reference to the game Destiny and the characters Ahamkara who are apparently space-dragons.
Computer gaming – I have no idea – is Oh Listener Mine a song to add to the playlist? The fact I am asking you to listen to it, provides the answer – an affirmative and is a song that stands on its own merits for those of us who wouldn’t know an xbox from a playstation, but do enjoy music with bite.

A shaft of sunlit-vibe stretches through the room with the entrancing vocal melodies and minor chord shimmering reverb wraps around the listener soothing away the aches and pains of the daily grind.
Makeout At The Drive-In will be coming out on the Canadian label Grey Records – The Garrys are keeping themselves busy at present having, on the 20th, revealed the track Swamp Stomp for the Grey Records twenty two track compilation LP Grey Matter Compilation (available on bandcamp) and will be in England for two shows at the Great Escape Festival in Brighton on the 17th of May and on the 18th will be in Cardiff, Wales, at the The Moon.
The Canadian funk-rock quartet The Noolands release the EP Us On A Bus on the 25th of April.
The first track to surface from the EP Loosey Goosey is a more hip dipping groove number than much of their back-catalogue, and discovers the listener digging in the cupboard to find that forgotten white fedora.
Given the liner notes of instrumentation, including a guest saxophonist, for the full five track EP (available on bandcamp) I would anticipate Us On A Bus will be a wide ranging eclectic mix of funky-rock’n’roll.
For now, having also found some white flares – I’m off to jive with Loosey Goosey.
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.
