CWM – Homely Streets – Audio

The English alt-rock band CWM were introduced last year and are currently working towards their forthcoming LP Mate? What!.

CWM - Homely Streets


Their third song to be revealed – Homely Streets – finds CWM in a different corner of the room to their last feature.

The new song has a grungy undertow that smudges as it surfaces from the speakers with the dampened instrumentation laying at a juxtaposition to the snappy drumkit, which affords Homely Streets captivating layers of texture while the expressive vocal delivers an unanticipated melodic tint to the track.

Muffin – Welcome To The Modern Age – Audio

Muffin is an English grunge quintet.



I do apologise to everyone for this very late feature as it was in early February I was given advanced notification of their eponymous EP, which came out the weekend before last.

A four track release of high impact rock which clumps, like mud on the wall, as it surfaces from the speakers creating an intricate soundtrack of dampened notes and fiery temper in which the audience becomes drawn.

Twin guitars enable Muffin to create music that fires in two different directions simultaneously while the thumping bass pulls the two six stringers in to a cohesive pattern while the impressive drum-kit creates the fireworks as it controls the shapes of the songs through which the intense vocal adds a faintly unnerving menace.

My pick of the release is the second track – Welcome To The Modern Age.


Muffin – Ep – Muffin is available on iTunes.*

@ThankGod4itall – Manifest – Audio

The US melancholic-hop project @ThankGod4itall was introduced last year.



The latest track to surface – Manifest is of equally gloomy perspective – reflecting on a world riven by abstract irrelevant petty squabbles, whilst the bigger picture of the grinding down of the populace to merely serve a a failed system becomes lost in the shouting matches. Underpinning the dour countenance lays an hypnotic piano led synthesis.
