Having now had the opportunity to listen to the full five track release (available on bandcamp) I am able to reaffirm my initial thoughts when featuring the title track back in November, that this is a EP to grab hold of on release.

Each song on the roughly twenty three minutes release is of slightly different texturing whilst each leaves the listener drawing thoughts of time having been slowed while gazing at distant galaxies expanding and contracting.

I draw particular attention to the closing track Love You Twice, which I am not able to share at this stage, though that isn’t to say the track I am able to feature – Hidden Places – is in anyway of lesser ingenuity.

Vazum – Servant – Audio

Vazum is relatively new goth-rock project from the USA who will be releasing the début and eponymous LP on the 10th of February.

Watching the subwoofer flex inside its own cone with bass speaker rotating off its platform are but two of the many delights in engaging with Vazum.

The seven track album pulses through the room in ever deeper cloaking until the listener is pitched in to the darkness afforded by a blackout curtain by when the elongated vocal smears and bending guitars have already enticed the limbs in to purple velvet bonds in which to writhe in uncontrolled ecstasy.

The third track is Servant.

A few hours ago the Lyon (France) based label Metro A revealed the EP VOLUME I – Sessions Polycarpe of new songs by the five bands with whom they work.

The first of the five songs is Bérénice by SLOGAN which is the gateway to an approximately eighteen minutes of sweeping electronica in which to explore a collection of enticing music.

There are occasions when social media genuinely does make the world a smaller and more interconnected place. Someone I connect with in Australia live streamed a couple of tracks by Dane Overton and the Joy Williams Band as they played on Saturday – resulting in a new connection being made with the band and via instant messaging here we all are, connected by the internet regardless of our geographic location.

Word arrives of a single coming out in March and an EP due for release in June, news of which I will update as they surface.

As a brief introduction – based on a two and a half minute live performance – of a band I look forward to hearing much more of during the year – the song The Only Way.

Superbean – Satan, Lend Me A Dollar – Audio

The US new wave trio Superbean released the LP Shit Show on the 8th.

Superbean - Satan, Lend Me A Dollar

Superbean

A dozen track album (available on bandcamp) of ska and new wave infused songs that shake an enraged fist at the world around, while inviting the audience to join in with the party. With their frustrations not taking over the positive vibes of the music rather marrying in an addictive roughly thirty three minutes of high energy rock’n’roll.

The closer is the celtic-rock derived Satan, Lend Me A Dollar.
