LiiN – Cassiopeia – Audio

The English synthwave duo LiiN released the LP Users on the 15th.

LiiN - Cassiopeia


Their merge of analogue synths and instrumentation makes for music which has a fuzzy hum that glows like a valve, emitting a palpable warmth, while also the sharp elbows of glitchy hissing dig in to the ribs giving the songs their variance of texturing.

The bakers dozen, roughly fifty minutes, track LP (available on bandcamp) can be enjoyed, equally, as a one stop night in with a few friends or each track individually popped like bubble wrap.

By way of a reminder of their sound, the appropriately named six and a quarter minutes closer – Cassiopeia.

Rosser – Tiny Hot Spot – Single Review

Rosser is a relatively new US electro-rock quintet.



The first track to surface Tiny Hot Spot is a vintage-rock feast that strides through the room in a cloak of bluesy riffs, off-beat percussion and lancing bass all adorned by a glitterball of synth with a vocal straddling the reference point, while extending a hand to the audience to join them on the floor to party away the night.

I look forward to hearing more from an outfit who have, in Tiny Hot Spot, demonstrated the ability to generate good time rock’n’roll that has the gumption to leave oily footprints in its wake that linger longer in the mind.

darktrain – dreaming of you only – Audio

The English darkwave band darktrain revealed their latest track within the past twenty four hours.

darktrain - dreaming of you only


An outfit who don’t feature often simply because they rarely reveal new material, though whenever they have until today they have been a duo. Towards the end of last month Rachel Garrett joined them as the drummer and dreaming of only you , currently a demo, is their first reveal as a trio.

With some fortune the addition of a third player to the line-up may afford compositions to surface more frequently.

Regularly crafting music, always of sad countenance, the most recent song to surface November (Black Rose) is made more sorrowful with the melancholic notes of piano leading a composition that was inspired by the death of their mother.

Dear Life, – Mild October – Audio

The English melancholic-rock quartet, Dear Life,, released the LP Hello Frankenstein! on the 11th.

Dear Life, - Mild October

Dear Life,

As with the scientist in the album title Dear Life, create a sapient entity in their laboratory, though rather than being a grotesque monster the roughly fifty one minutes, ten track, release (available on bandcamp) finds the music washes the listener in a cathartic, warm, sense of well-being as it delivers its theatrical movements.

The slowly unfolding ambient compositions each, individually, enrobe the listener with luxurious palettes of imagery and in combination result in an LP that is best enjoyed with plenty of time to recover in quiet contemplation long after the notes have faded from the room.

Currently touring the album in parts of England and France –


16th – EXETER, England Cavern Club
17th – CAMBRIDGE, England The Corner House
18th -SHEFFIELD, England West Street Live
19th – MANCHESTER, England The Thirsty Scholar
20th – LONDON, England Underbelly
21st – TROYES, France The Message
22nd – VENDEUVRE SUR-BARSE, France Théâtre de la Forêt d’Orient
23rd – ÉTAIN, France Fête de la Musique 2018
24th – LILLE, France Chez Madeleine
29th – READING. England Rising Sun Arts Centre


1st – STOURBRIDGE, England Claptrap

I would suggest that if Dear Life, happen to be in your area on this tour it would be well worth setting aside the evening.

Mild October is the fourth track.
