Their music is defined by a forceful bass that bulges through the speakers and a flattened vocal which gives the songs their brooding presence. With a growing audience both in the USA and in Europe they are often to be found touring on either side of the atlantic.

Recently caught in live performance in Denmark – from their eponymous LP, the third of the ten tracks, Artificial.

The first of the five tracks, Ripping Up My Soul, which immediately draws to mind of Lena Lovich, is the curtain raiser to an EP that demands being played with plenty of space around and volume stretched to its limits.

Melt The Arms (available on bandcamp), all over in one hundred and twenty two seconds, is a distorted, menacing flurry of unadorned garage-rock that holds the listener in a stupor of engrossed attention.

BUHU – Yew – Audio

On the 5th the US triphop duo BUHU released the LP Tenets.

BUHU - Yew

BUHU

A roughly thirty four minutes, eight track, album (available on bandcamp) which through a process of osmosis permeates the mind with its dreamy luxuriating texturing as electronica and vocal merge one in to the other. A while in gestation, having first been introduced with the fourth track on the album, La Truth in May of last year, the delay has only heightened anticipation and by some measure BUHU have been able to more than meet those expectations.

Yew is the opening composition.

The J.O.B. – Lisa’s Song – Audio

The US rock quartet The J.O.B. will be releasing the LP Highway Of Shadows on the 9th of November.

The J.O.B. - Lisa's Song

The J.O.B.

A band who first featured back in 2012, have always revealed music with the wistful air of strongly affected haunting memories and a tangible sadness to them delivered through washes of hazy textured guitar- the latest reveal is of similar demeanour.

The first song to surface from the new album (also the opener of the ten tracks on Highway Of Shadows), a luxurious and gentle ballad – Lisa’s Song – finds The J.O.B. exploring the theme of those who spend long periods away from their roots, whilst pining for distant and neglected relationships sadly accepting of the potential for the loss, signals of another fine release on its way by a band who are able to wrest emotional context out of dry stone, but never music of wallowing self-pity, rather a calm acceptance that life is not a bowl of cherries.
