Working alongside numerous musicians and a plethora of additional instrumentation on the seven track, approximately twenty minutes, album (available on bandcamp) Kelly Quigley reveals an LP of excoriating tenderness, which draws tears from the eyes through its lamenting journey in which the listener is invited to explore their own angsts.

The penultimate track is Ours (Leo).

A couple of tracks from the eleven have been revealed in advance of the début album, which is available on bandcamp.

Both are floor filling shape-shifting sonics that burrow deep in to the mind and leave the audience lost in a trance.

By way of an introduction – the hypnotic primordial rotations of the middle track on the LP – What.

White Lemon Delirium – Geddewei – Audio

The trippy-rock quartet of Mirza Lazuardi (Guitar), Farhan Fazrian (Guitar), Prayoga Adhitama (Bass) and Barsya Prastoro (Drums) from Bandung (Indonesia) known as White Lemon Delirium released the LP Mind’s Eye on the 10th.

A ten track album (available on bandcamp) which fuses progressive rock, psychedelia and space-rock in to manageable slices and rather than disappearing in to vortex of spiralling hallucinogenics the quartet create music that has a steadying keel in which the listener can find a buoyancy of ready comprehensibility.

By allowing the compositions to have a fairly approachable demeanour they also afford the songs something of an extemporised feel by which the audience finds their mind becoming ever more transfixed.

The antepenultimate track is Geddewei.

Electric Currant – RUST – Audio

The New Zealand industrial-glitch quartet Electric Currant released the two track single CORRODE on the 12th.

The two songs are of very different flavour – my selection from the single (available on bandcamp) being the opener RUST – much akin to the release title the listener is left inspecting their speakers just to ensure the acidic, corrosive glitch hasn’t found its way into the cabinets as the nibbled stutter of the electronica leaves the room coated in an acrid steam.

The closer AI – being a softly brushed multilayered RnB weave of voices and instrumentation.

The Fog Ensemble – Lighthouse – Audio

The trio of Antonis Karakostas (Guitars / Loops / Programming), Nicholas Kondylis (Bass) and George Nanopoulos (Drums) from Thessaloníki (Greece) who form the instrumental-rock band The Fog Ensemble release the LP Throbs on the 19th.

The seven track album is available on bandcamp and comes three years after their début is marked, on the basis of the one piece around from the album, by more subtle strokes than their previous fairly punchy previous work.

Replacing the forefront of compressed coils of guitar, of previous compositions, with aired textures of multi-dimensional electronica, as disported in Lighthouse, the opener of the LP, has enabled The Fog Of Ensemble to create mystical cinematographic luxuriant layers which soar through the room, captivating the listener in their ethereal presence.
