Christopher Soetan in the guise of La timpa seeks to consider the tensions of the world within his music out-put, as he does in visual arts and plans for an involvement in the fashion industry and some publishing.

The first of the five tracks and the title of the album, which is available on bandcamp,  has a slight distortion to the ambient electronica giving the piece a sense of the oppressive that filters through his work.

By way of an introduction – a live version of Shotgun, the the last of the three tracks on the single The Atlantic Ocean.

Emergency Protocol – J.Z. – Audio

The US Emo trio Emergency Protocol released the LP Tell Them Diz Sent You on the 22nd.

Emergency Protocol - J.Z.

Emergency Protocol

I have little doubt music translates to different cultures in different ways, much in the same way the pronunciation does. The second of the the six tracks on the album J.Z. in English is enunciated as Jay Zed, whilst in the language of central North America is pronounced Jay Zee – so we must necessarily approach the song from a completely different starting point.




Though I do think however you may pronounce the letter Z there can be no dispute that Emergency Protocol have laid more hedges to baffle the casual listener than their introduction almost a year ago.

The angles have become more abstract and the internal machinations more pronounced which, to me, marks a greater self-confidence as the trio who never have made their music immediately accessible are more comfortable in demanding that the audience plays on their field, affording the compositions a greater impact and distinguishable surface area.

I don’t expect the return of Emergency Protocol will be welcomed by all the readers who caught them last time round, I merely hope that you give it another try as these are skilled and idiosyncratic musicians who have much value to add the world of music and I thank them for doing what they do and look forward to them doing more.

Tell Them Diz Sent You – EP – Emergency Protocol is available on iTunes.*
