The Angeles Project

The Angeles Project insists you are unadorned of clothing with a partner in horizontal pose as the freedom of expression demands equilibrium of the audience. New on the scene at the end of March there is nothing to do than want to envelope yourself in the luxuriant unction extended through the speakers as a sultry vocal massages oils into intertwined bodies.

Combining synthetic production with lustrous vocal is a complexity which oft results in the anodyne, The Angeles Project is able to reposition the sounds to enveloping eroticism that folds the body in warming textures of extravaganza.

Sadly with only three songs to hear thus far – there is an unfulfilled orgasm, it stands currently as more of a doorstep kiss –  and I look forward to the triple LP we all need, as what there is available enthuses of more than a knee-trembler, more for an evening, night and breaking dawn of exploration.

I look forward to hearing more of The Angeles Project as does the owner of the thigh I currently nuzzle.

The Good Wives

The Good Wives

Combining country blues with indie rock gives The Good Wives a sound that has a zesty peppiness to it whilst simultaneously a cynical tone. Songs about shallow conquests are given piquancy by the bouncing rhythms.

The combination of electric and acoustic guitar enables The Good Wives to create music that they can inject with changes of emphasis without needing to alter format and this gives the resulting out-put a continuity of sound. The gap between their first and second EP has afforded the band the opportunity to add a heavier more rock centric flavour to the tracks, which personally, I find more engaging. Predominately a trio both in the studio and live, they do collaborate with additional musicians as need dictate and this also allows the out-fit to add a depth to the productions.

With the evident influences of mid-west folk it is only a surprise to find that The Good Wives are not based in a prairie, rather in the far north west of the country. Perhaps it is from this juxtaposition that they are able to invest the music with urban cynicism, which gives the resulting music a granular presence that brings the sounds to life. Whatever it may be, I suggest spending some time with the trio will find you in a good space.

Animal Years

Firmly rooted in Americana Animal Years has been able to dust down the derivative to provide a freshness which has a broader internationalism to it, with influences from both sides of the Atlantic being brought together in an easy flowing sound. The quartet play with confidence and ease that belies the band only having been together for just over a year.

Animal Years deliver music which has a pulsating percussion that keeps the tracks moving forward, whilst a slightly fuzzed guitar gives a warming texture and a rumbling bass completes the back-drop to a powerful vocal. Whilst the songs have a radio friendliness to them, which as you know is typically a big turn-off to me, the band has achieved this by not lessening the genuine feeling and there are enough dramatics and switches to retain interest for those, like me, who prefer their music to be a bit scruffy at the edges.

A début thirteen track LP – Sun Will Rise (Deluxe Edition) was released in May. There is no non-deluxe version and I get the feeling these guys have a sense of humour as there is an LP that came out in 2006 by another artist with the title Animal Years (Deluxe Edition). This ability to smile, while creating music (which extends to their videos) well worth spending time with, marks Animal Years as an out-fit I intend to stay with for some time to come.

COEDS

Combining rock ‘n’ roll with new wave takes me straight back the the early ’80s and what a fine timeline COEDS play within. The tumultuous pace is switched continually as the quartet demonstrate one moment the ability to play to the gallery and the next with shards of explosive energy that grab the listener by the hair and drags them onto the dance-floor.


The cleverly constructed tracks which unify sparsity with a thumping bass /percussion floor are built up into to sounds which have the audience swaying in time. Even on recording one gets the sense that COEDS is a band who probably spend a lot of time restringing their instruments and patching up the drum kit. The vivacity that spills around the room makes you wish for a direct flight to get to seem them playing live, but with fortune they will be appearing more locally to audiences not just living in Georgia or in the USA.

I guess I should sit down now and finish off the review or else the office will have a broken desk. I look forward to hearing much more of COEDS in short order.

Cherry Glazerr

Cherry Glazerr from Los Angeles in the USA is the garage rock trio of Clementine Creevy (Vocals / Guitar), Hannah Uribe (Drums) and Sean Redman (Bass).

Cherry Glazerr

Shearing the extraneous from the sounds Cherry Glazerr deliver unpretentious music which exemplifies all that is best of the basal roots of rock. Bleeding bass notes are fizzed with a well tempered percussion, whilst the guitar and vocals spread their wings to give the compositions texture.

It is of no surprise that this relatively new band has already gathered a fanatical local following as the out-put is easy to understand and genuine, whilst being delivered with pitch and time perfection, to give the sound an integrity and listenability that is underlain by vitality. That isn’t to think that the songs are simplistic as, within the flowing material, sit well crafted progressions giving the music depth and finesse.

Cherry Glazerr deliver sounds that travel well further afield and the welcome addition of a couple of LPs, the most recent ten track being Haxel Princess which appeared earlier this year, ensure those of us not in the USA and local area can also enjoy the music, which is best shared with friends at an impromptu party.
