Thumping distortion breaks through the speakers immediately dissipating in to showers of individual filaments that claw in to the eardrum.

The roughly nineteen minutes release (available on bandcamp) is needed to be heard at full extension of sub-woofer, tweeters and volume set to inordinately loud  to fully enjoy the dynamic range and sheer brutality of the compositions which, like a corpse reaching from a grave, clamp around the ankle holding the listener in frozen fear.

God I Love Your Picture is the antepenultimate of the eight songs.

UV – Joys Of Pain – Audio

UV is an English spectral-wave project.



Finalising the details of the début four track eponymous EP pencilled in for release in November, a couple of songs were packaged together as a two track single and released on bandcamp on the 17th.

The roughly twenty minutes complete EP is a luscious weave of instrumentation, electronica and vocal which, in layers of fine silk, build substantive architectural imagery, yet despite the complexity of the compositions are able to retain the individual translucent fibres which affords the songs their ethereal presence.

By way of an introduction – the penultimate of the four songs on the EP and the closer on the single – Joys Of Pain.

The retrospective concentrate of the tracks lifts the listener immediately to south coast summer beaches of England in the ’60s with scooters, parkas and dark sunglasses spoiling for a rumble with rockers.

Taught drumskin allows percussion to ping across the room like a dart, the bubbling bass gives the countenance of an ill-temper brewing just under the surface while compacted guitar occasionally stretches the strings as though a snarling dog looking to slip the leash with the laid-back vocal which reverberates in to an elongated sneer gives the music an unexpected, though goes some way in identifying the source of the name of the band, beatnik tincture.

A ten track album which contains numerous highlights – with Never On My Mind – the third song – being my pick of the release. A song which pulls to memory something else, which I can’t quite bring to the forefront of my mind to name, though you may well recall immediately.

Despite having received notification of the EP Week of Bees, which came out at the tail end of last week and is available on bandcamp, early last month – once again I am late – my apologies.

I am, however, able to indulge in and obviate my sadness for the delay – the acoustics that slide around the room akin to dark clouds blowing in-front of a bright sun, bringing a despondency and chill, which is followed, as is often the case with music of dour countenance by a sense of enthused appreciation for all as the gloom clears once again to reveal the warmth.

Colours, my pick of the release, is the first of the four tracks.

Sugarcane – One Specific Thing – Audio

Sugarcane is an English bossa-blend collaborative project centred around Robin French.



The first song to surface – One Specific Thing – indicates of future collaborations that will include not just musicians rather also those primarily pursuing other avenues. This featuring, perhaps unsurprisingly given Robin also screen-writes the vocals of someone with a background in acting – Antonia Thomas.

One Specific Thing, which guides the listener across the dance-floor with its intoxicating mix of Latino, French and Caribbean, with a twist of the midlands of England suggests that the forthcoming début EP will be one to add to the collection on arrival.
