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.

Sultry Sounds Of The Underground – Soul Crushing Ecstasy – Audio

The US alt-rock quartet Sultry Sounds Of The Underground were first introduced in 2016.

Sultry Sounds Of The Underground - Soul Crushing Ecstasy

Sultry Sounds Of The Underground

Long time in gestation there is still no final word on the long awaited début LP however, after various line-up chsanges which has delayed progression, the latest track to surface Soul Crushing Ecstasy finds the band sounding better than it has on previous features, with a more complex narrative, part of which is from the studio post-production, the bulk being from a new found self-belief therefore, it may be a tad premature to raise as a thought, I do however get the sense the album is finally on its way.

Long-Distance – Be A Man – Single Review

The Scotland based alt-rock quartet Long-Distance released the single Be A Man on the 16th.



Be A Man (available on bandcamp) is a blend of melancholic-rock and indie-dance which intrigues for the disparity of source influences that Long-Distance are able to deliver with a striking confidence that holds the listener fully absorbed.

The slowly bending guitar drifts through the speakers, as though a spectral imprint, while the quiet pinning of bass and drum lay as a frame for a signature vocal which is able to stretch to notes high and low enabling the band to impart a composition of intense emotions.

With only a couple of songs available, each a year apart, I merely hope that it isn’t a further twelve months before I next hear from Long-Distance.

The Mouth Of Ghosts

Originally featured in 2012, shortly thereafter The Mouth Of Ghosts disappeared until reappearing in 2015 with a new release – after a further three years in the shadows Tonight is the first track to surface from the forthcoming EP and once again showcases why they are always a welcome addition as the brooding darkness looms in to the room.
