A few hours ago the Lyon (France) based label Metro A revealed the EP VOLUME I – Sessions Polycarpe of new songs by the five bands with whom they work.

The first of the five songs is Bérénice by SLOGAN which is the gateway to an approximately eighteen minutes of sweeping electronica in which to explore a collection of enticing music.

NIGHTS – Hollow – Single Review

Nights is a new alt-rock project from the USA.

NIGHTS

NIGHTS

Currently only one song is around, Hollow, which was released on the 8th, though word arrives of an EP in the offing.

The combinations of electronica and natural instrumentation immediately capture notice and the audience finds themselves intrigued to explore where the slightly poppy blend of rock riffs is heading and once the stupendous vocal enters the fray there is no turning back. With some fortune, for those of us who are not very good with pop-music, discover that as the track develops so the intensity of the rock infusion builds – to create a song that requires immediate replay just to ensure Hollow is as good as was initially thought, only to discover it is even better.

I look forward to hearing more by Mel Denisse – the person who is NIGHTS.

There are occasions when social media genuinely does make the world a smaller and more interconnected place. Someone I connect with in Australia live streamed a couple of tracks by Dane Overton and the Joy Williams Band as they played on Saturday – resulting in a new connection being made with the band and via instant messaging here we all are, connected by the internet regardless of our geographic location.

Word arrives of a single coming out in March and an EP due for release in June, news of which I will update as they surface.

As a brief introduction – based on a two and a half minute live performance – of a band I look forward to hearing much more of during the year – the song The Only Way.

Superbean – Satan, Lend Me A Dollar – Audio

The US new wave trio Superbean released the LP Shit Show on the 8th.

Superbean - Satan, Lend Me A Dollar

Superbean

A dozen track album (available on bandcamp) of ska and new wave infused songs that shake an enraged fist at the world around, while inviting the audience to join in with the party. With their frustrations not taking over the positive vibes of the music rather marrying in an addictive roughly thirty three minutes of high energy rock’n’roll.

The closer is the celtic-rock derived Satan, Lend Me A Dollar.

The second song to be revealed from the EP, I Think I See You Now, was also released as a stand alone single on the 12th.

The frail tendrils of the song hang like an spiders web in a meadow on a frosty morning gleaming in the dawn sunlight, slender yet forthright. The open weave and simplicity of the architecture of I Think I See You Now surrounding the fragile vocal, which threatens to splinter as it emerges from the speakers, finds the audience hushed in unwavering attention as the emotionally charged composition floats through the room.

I Think I See You Now is available on Amazon.*
