The duo of t.r. hand from England and Glauber K.S from Brazil collaborated to release the minimalist drone EP Suburban Solitude today.
As you would anticipate the five track EP, which is available on bandcamp, is not a case study in brevity, lasting as it does for approximately seventy four minutes.
There is an imaginative experimentalism to the release as varieties of piano, guitar, electronica and field sound recordings are fused in to an immersive soundscape in which to harmonise the flow of the mind and allow it to, akin to an unpaired electron, dimerize with the music ultimately forming a covalent bond.
Culture Working, which lasts for precisely twenty minutes, is the middle track.
The music, particularly in the song Feel Like Kids, their latest reveal and the first of the three on the single of the same name that was released earlier in the month, delivers a slice of deeply grooved cuts of garage hewn with ’50s blues steeped rock’n’roll and resultingly a quartet I look forward to hearing more from in short order.
The Brazilian electro-rock quartet Remove Silence, from Brazil, will be releasing the LP Raw later this year.
A couple of years since last featured and the intervening period of time discovers the quartet with a slightly different feel to their sound. The prog-rock experimentalism has been replaced with a more structured focus in which, in Middle Of Nowhere (from the forthcoming album) at least, tinctures of gothic-rock are blended with electro-indie and a splash of metal to generate a song with power and passion, while also accessibly lighter of touch.
Owl Company, a Brazilian heavy-rock quintet, is planning to release the LP Iris in the latter half of the year.
The newest track to surface from the album, which is also available as a standalone single, Pieces, showcases their compressed heavy riffs which mind the listener of condensed milk with its combinations of depth of flavour and fulsome richness of texture.
