Continuum – Black and Blue – Video

Continuum is an electro-folk quartet from the USA.



It is with apologies I come to this so late in the day, but sometimes that is the case and although Continuum have released no new music in the past year, I sense when they do, I will have more to say of a band who combine a plethora of influences to deliver a sound that just demands new music for us all to enjoy.

From Myrtle Beach in the USA the instrumental-psychedelic-gaze creator Trey McManus who performs under the name Treyverb.

Glittering guitars subsume themselves inside folds of reverberation giving the listener the sense they are bobbing inside the ripples sent out by a pebble dropped into a mill-pond and listening to the quiet disturbance. Treybveb couches the instrumentation inside reflections of itself giving the sounds a multi-dimensional perspective in which the audience is invited to oscillate like a free-radical element and each play through of the music conjurers up new kaleidoscopes of sound.

The palettes are of primary colours, yet Treyverb is able to take the mind on a journey of multitudinousness pastel shades as the interweaving melodies circulate inside themselves, leaving the mind transfixed by the hues.

An experienced musician Trey is able to translate that knowledge to tapestries which enunciate of the settling of inner turmoil which, despite the sparsity of complexity, are able to inflect of emotional turbulence.

Treyverb has the ability to transfer auditory minimalism to create a sound which is a tour de force of projectionist sublimation as the mind wraps itself into a Gordinian Knot of self-exploration.

Released this month was the four track – twenty six and a just over a third minutes EP A Year Without Words, which is available through Silber Media on Bandcamp.

Some Gifts – Stop Acting Crazy – Audio

The US alt-rock trio Some Gifts released the LP Win Instantly yesterday.

Some Gifts - Stop Acting Crazy

Some Gifts

The second of the eleven tracks Stop Acting Crazy finds Some Gifts much slowed down from their introduction last year, although lacking none of the power, as the music slows from light-fly weight boxing pace to a heavy-weight slugging match.

That isn’t to say the music is any the less enjoyable as Some Gifts use the more generous spaces to thread Stop Acting Crazy with an immediately captivating chord progression of semi-tones which can bear as much repeat as possible to fit into the just under four and three quarter minute track. The percussion is also able to develop more expressive sympathy leaving the bass to hook the jabs to the mid-riff as the vocal retains its familiar growl giving the composition a thoroughly enjoyable rough and tumble, which demands an immediate replay, if only to extend the sublime chords of the guitar and hear them once again just to confirm you really have fallen head over heels with a sound.

Win Instantly – Some Gifts is available on iTunes.*
