Elefantasy – Drench – Audio

Elefantasy is an alt-rock quartet from England.



I apologise, once again, for being late to getting to a feature as it was at the start of this month I was alerted to the EP Spitcoin, which was released last week.

A five track EP of retrospective atmosphere with each song on the approximately eighteen minutes release offering a different perspective on life around and a band I look forward to hearing much more of over the coming years.

By way of an introduction – the opening song on the EP – Drench – and longer stay readers will understand completely why this is my pick of the release with the Blondie – Union City Blues – chord progressions opening.

Three Feathers – Know It Well – Audio

The New Zealand thermal-groove duo Three Feathers are planning to release their début LP this year.

Three Feathers

Three Feathers

Not a duo in an enormous rush, which suitably matches the songs which drift through the room as though riding an albatross borne on a warm current gliding over the oceans, as it was back in 2013 they formed, however it was not until April of last year that the first song – Make It Good –  was made more widely available and on the 16th the second – Know It Well (both available on bandcamp).

Pull up a comfortable chair, settle back and let yourself be encircled in the soft folds of Three Feathers.

Nastos – Down Hear – Audio

The US trippy-rock quartet Nastos release the LP Inherited Dreams on the 21st.

The ten track album (I believe will be available on bandcamp in due course), which runs for roughly forty minutes, has a lofidelity analogue hum running through its veins which gives the listener the sense they are being welcomed in to a space of good intent and the longer they linger the more settled in to a world of glassy eyed stare and smiling face.

Whilst best digested in full at one sitting, Inherited Dreams is an album which does still work by dipping in and out at opportune moments – though to do may result in unexpectedly finding oneself listening to one of the more rapid songs on the release.

My selection from the LP is the sixth – Down Hear.

The title track and A side of the single – Boot/Rally, which is available on bandcamp, is my selection of the two songs as the electronica bruises the recording levels resulting in the song having a continual sparking akin to electric cables shorting and standing in stark contrast to the B side Distracted, which is a soft brush ambient lofi number.

Trivial Nonsense – Amor Ni Deseo – Audio

The US alternative-rock oufit Trivial Nonsense released the LP Heaven on the 16th.

Trivial Nonsense

Trivial Nonsense

The nine track album is a not inconsequential body of work, as Trivial Nonsense ponder both thoughts of hopelessness in a society that is intent on splintering in to silos of righteousness along with an optimism that the mistakes of the recent past can ultimately be rectified resulting in a more inclusive cohesion.

The roughly twenty two minutes release comprises of thoughtful measured tracks that have a natural flow from one to the other, giving Heaven an organic, breathing embodiment which during its journey brings in connectivity of influences from different continents – my selection from the LP being the latina-rock threaded  fourth – Amor Ni Deseo.


Heaven EP – Trivial Nonsense is available on iTunes.*
