Folcene – In The Summer – Single Review

The Australian downtempo project Folcene revealed the latest tune, In The Summer, on the 23rd.

Folcene

There are four songs around, each of different story-line three are dappled in warm sunlight the most recent however lays in a shadow, which, for me, affords the track a more generous texturing that enables the richness of the composition a more expressive space in which to expand and develop its theme as electronica, instrumentation and vocal to fill the room with an immersive flow of melting wax in which to lay the head and allow the music to flow in to the veins filling the body with a relaxing injection, akin to a glass of alcohol raking off the sharp edges of the day.

An eight track album (available on bandcamp) of mesmeric music and vocal which transports the listener, as though observing the world from an outerbody experience, in to a restful calmness from which the only sadness is to return to the reality of life.

The third song is What’s It For.

Slightly over four and a third minutes Cassavetes (available on bandcamp) continues the theme of the only other track around Action At A Distance with its ever more pressing repetition of phrase, giving the guitar, electronics and percussion the sense of a stuttering loop, a technique which, akin to those who find the sound of screeching chalk either excruciating or a delight, will divide listeners in to those, such as myself, who are keen to hear more and those who will never be able to contemplate cartography with ease again.

Kuroshi – Lock N Load – Single Review

The Australian deep-house project Kuroshi released the single Lock N Load yesterday.

It is rare that EDM producers create music which is as redolent with vitriol towards a system that oppresses the masses for the enjoyment of the few or as socially aware, therefore of course I am going to suggest spending time in company.

Following on from last years EP Dark Drive, Lock N Load further develops the theme of the five songs of angry protestation with a song that has an even darker and more overbearing presence, while once again creating music which sits well under flashing neon strobes.

SPOD – Day In The Sun – Audio

The Australian alt-electro project SPOD releases the LP Adult Fantasy in August.

The album will be adding to the extensive catalogue of material which, although never taking itself too seriously, is always able to add to any party moment with its delightful subdued lofidelity analogue synths and zingy beats.

The first song to surface from the LP – Day In The Sun – spreads a summery vibe that palpably warms the room and will be released as a standalone single on the 20th.
