Beautiful Machines – Bastian – Audio

Conrad Schuman (Vocals / Guitar / Synth), Stefanie Ku (Synth / Backing Vocals) and Veli-Matti Matilla (Drums / Visual Programming), who form the – loosely based in San Francisco (USA) though originally from Taiwan, Finland and the USA –  synthwave band Beautiful Machines are putting the final touches to the concept LP Singularity.

Beautiful Machines

Beautiful Machines

In advance of the album they release part one – Bastian – as a standalone single on the 12th.

Bastian is a dream-sequence of liquid electronica, melted synthesis and sublimating vocal, held in its gaseous formation by the rounded beat of a gravitational percussion forming an aural nebula as transfixing as though captured by the Hubble Space Telescope.

Beautiful Machines are a trio regularly to be found around the world in performance and on the basis of Bastian, Singularity, appears set fair to further enhance their reputation and audience reach.

Mother Lights – Last Dance – Audio

The US based folk-rock quartet Mother Lights released the EP Waiting for Mammoths on the 13th.

Mother Lights

Mother Lights

An immersive four track release which blends keys, bowed and strummed strings, percussion and vocal in to a weave of rich tapestry with a vaguely forlorn sense of wistful remembrance to the compositions.

With influences steeped in UK folk-revival and US folk-rock of the ’60s, Mother Lights are well positioned to create music which draws from a deep well of creativity, yet are able to transpose the songs through the decades to give the sounds a fresh lick of paint.

The penultimate track on Waiting For MammothsLast Dance – being my pick of the release.

Their music combines tradition and modernism, to deliver energetic songs which are marked by the distinctive sound of the Cretan laouto and singular vocal which are surrounded by layers of percussion and, an electric guitar – which in the forthcoming album is played by the increasingly involved Guy Picciotto.

The second track of the nine on Mother is Only Love.
