Valuenary from Makassar in Indonesia is the rock quartet of Bothay (Vocal), Pardy (Guitar), Ara (Bass) and Chapunk (Drums).
Having only formed in August there is little material currently available, but what I have heard leads me to believe Valuenary have much to say and are already saying it well.
Lyrics focus on the world around them and the music is riven with classical rock themes, with big anthems and rumbling drums, it is the superb vocal which marks them out above the crowd. Valuenary have taken their influences as the foundation and are seeking to add their own structure around it without heading off theme and with some well composed songs they are able to offer a sound which fills the room with its presence.
As mentioned, material is very limited and I look forward to hearing more in short order.

Invasions a dream pop quintet from Toronto in Canada is Alex, Brian, Matt, Brian and Ara.
The mystique of Invasions emerges from the lo-fi connotations. Kick off your shoes and let the warming waves of the quintet wash over the body; Strip away the clothing and just revel in the warming jets of mist that flow around the room as the band mutates betwixt the instrumentation as an unstoppable stream of warming instrumentation disperses its scent, whilst the vocal slides though the instruments like a panther stalking prey.
Configured to entice the pleasure zones, Invasions portend of delights to come and the triumphalist bugle which intersperse many tracks sits as a valedictory triumphalism which suits the minds eye of the audience. Displaced sounds weft across the room, floating like ethereal spirits for the ears to hone towards yet fail to capture as the group meanders off the direction of travel.
Individual tracks are not overly long, yet the brain is convinced it has been on a lengthy stay as Invasions combine both simple constructs with variations on a theme providing sounds which capture the imagination. I just need another lay down to absorb the atmosphere.
