The English alt-rock quartet The Vex are working towards the release of the LP Manor House for later this year.
Whilst the earliest roots of the musical careers of players in the band, which has been followed since 2009 can be heard far back in the mix of the first track to surface from the album – Sunlight Moonlight – there is a far less fiery impatience with the players allowing the music to slowly reveal its bouquet akin to flowers following the sunlight.

The first track to surface from the album – בתפילות שלי (In My Prayers) again showcases the strength of melody and voice which always makes it a pleasure to discover music by a creator who first featured in 2014.

The first track to be revealed from the new album has been made available as an unplugged version – Walking On Waves.
Often acoustic versions of tracks, particularly by rock bands, enable the musicians to expose the fuller range of their emotional connectivity with their music and the creative process, along with the strength of the songwriting and interweaving-musicianship which is often obscured in the final plugged in versions.
The English alt-rock trio Peur release their début LP Explorer on the 4th.
Like a fine wine ageing in the bottle the trio have taken a few years to release their first album and it transpires to be have time well spent.
When first introduced in 2015 Peur were on the cusp of releasing the five track EP Future Architects and somehow that release title has become prescient as the eleven track album is their first multi-track release since and it does demonstrate a band who have built on their sound and skills over the years.
