Jointpop - FROM TRINIDAD​.​.​.​WITH LOVE

Jointpop

The first track to surface from the album (which is available on bandcamp), the second of the eleven – Amplify – is of quite different root-stock than music of theirs featured over the years with the synth playing a far more prominent role and creating a song that minds of early ’80s synthpop.

It will be interesting to discover if Amplify is an outlier or the fulcrum for FROM TRINIDAD​.​.​.​WITH LOVE.

The Black Lodge is a four track EP of ethereal shapes as the electronica folds in to itself like melting wax with a spectral vocal wrapping in to the ears – the vaguely sinister nature of the songs is delivered through both a jagged edge of drum-pad and the menacing bass which give the tracks their darkness.

The first song to be revealed from the EP is the second track – Killer.

Loyal Lobos is the US based project of the Colombian melancholic-rock creator Andrea Silva.

Prior to going anywhere near the output of Loyal Lobos do ensure you have a handkerchief to hand to wipe away the tears which will spill from the eyes.

The most recent track to surface – Dirt – commences with spaced notes of guitar which is soon cloaked by a slow-stepping and loosely sprung snare drum that instantly provides a sad countenance to the track, prior to the accompaniment of the fragile, breaking, vocal before gradually building in to a wash of intensity that ebbs and flows through a composition which contemplates of the nature of destructive relationships that, by their very nature, predominately consist of short rising highs that are immediately followed by lengthy deep troughs of despair prior to finally and inevitably collapsing in to self-extirpation.
