Eggs on Mars, the lofi garage trio of Justin (Bass), Mason (Drums) and Brad (Vocals / Guitar) from Kansas City (USA), were introduced earlier in the year.
Eggs On Mars
Apologies, once again, despite this hanging around in my email inbox since the 8th I have only just caught the news of an album which came out earlier this month, once again I am late.
The ten track LP, Mama Pancake (available on bandcamp) is a more complete and rounded sound than their earlier introduction, though of similar sad countenance with the listener captivated by the slowly drifting melodies that fill the room with lingering notes that hang in the air like hazy regretful memories.
Many Minds, the third song, being my pick of the release.
The trio of Billy Howard, Jock Norton and Will Michael from London (England) who form the rock band Puppy will be releasing the LP The Goat on the 25th of January 2019.
Slugging bass and drums launch through the speakers in the seventh of the dozen tracks – World Stand Still – with the listener anticipating a high energy heavy-metal number to burst through the room only for Puppy to slow the track to what the ears attune to be a 45 rpm record playing at 33 ⅓, though rather than feeling short changed the mind swiftly attunes and revels in the laid back heavy-rock rhythms.
North Sea Dialect is a doomwave project from Scotland.

A little late to this, apologies to everyone, the début LP (available on bandcamp) Local Guide was released earlier in the month.
A roughly twenty eight minutes, ten track, album that takes the listener to the dark foreboding gabbro walls of The Cuillins looming overlooking the highland clearances of Allt Coire Lagan as the mystical, forlorn compositions fill the room with their gloomy noises-off.
Merging self-deprecating lyric with garage rock and even on occasion edges of indie-dance Bony Macaroni are able to create music which has a distinctive cadence and sound, leaving the listener engaged both with the sadcore underpinning and thrashing around the room in unfettered joie de vivre.
The most recent track to surface, which was released as a standalone single on the 16th is Doom.
The New York (USA) sadcore musician Victoria Bigelow is working towards the release of the EP Going Blue.
A couple of tracks have surfaced from the EP, the most recent of which, released as a standalone single on the 9th, Blame is best heard with a draw full of clean handkerchiefs prior to approaching.
The dreamy acoustics immerse themselves deep in to the limbic system and the listener finds themselves wallowing in the tear streaked melodic syncopation of the composition as the beat scatters through the ears overlayed by the intoxicating and hypnotic flow of the woe-struck emotional melancholia of the vocal.
