Tommy Zamp – Tattoos Of Stars – Audio

The US blues-rocker Tommy Zamp releases the LP You Don’t Know Me on the 28th of November.

Tommy Zamp - Gnotti

Tommy Zamp – Gnotti

An eleven track album highlighted by the guitar which winds itself in to coils that defy sound-acoustics and merely requires the listener to have wood-shavings underneath the feet to grind to sawdust through the just under over three quarters of an hour of its duration.

Whilst not my personal selection, those who have engaged with the site for a while do know I have an elderly Pekingese – Gnotti – who lays alongside me as I put fingers to keyboard to write about the music and is of far sharper of hearing than I – never missing a beat – and for reasons which will become evident as the track develops – decided to interact audibly with the second song in particular – making it his pick of the LP – Tattoos Of Stars.

UNDO – No Sense To Call – Audio

The Scottish alt-rock quartet Undo will be releasing their eponymous LP on the 24th of February.

UNDO - No Sense To Call


With a different emphasis to the music than when last reviewed back in July, in No Sense To Call, Undo deliver a track that has a dark undercurrent in which the listener gets the sense of brooding presence that captivates attention.

Tightly packed drumming and bass create the darkness while guitar creates the feeling of panicky urgency as the high notes spin in to the room whilst the dual vocals enables the voices to inflect emotional context.

V.I.S. – VOX – Vreme Na Zaborav – Audio

The Macedonian dark-electro band V.I.S. – VOX are finalising details for an LP later in the year.

V.I.S. - VOX

V.I.S. – VOX

From the forthcoming album Vreme Na Zaborav combines shiny guitar with a muffling bass, from which synths spirals streams of smoky texture as the percussion throbs like a diesel engine.

Overlaying the just under three and three quarter minute track is a luscious baritone that wraps itself around the listener like a hypnotist in which the mind becomes transfixed and not, a song, as the title suggests one you will feel is one due its Time For Oblivion from the memory-banks.
