The Australian alt-rock band Summon The Birds were introduced last year.

Earlier in the month they released the six track LP Blood Love, which is available on bandcamp.

A set of songs in to which the listener digs their spoon in sumptuous dumplings of warming music that makes life better for its very presence.

The material is drawn from that well of the creativity of early ’70s progressive psychedelia which they approach from the direction of that materials folk inspired derivative, to create songs that hold a calm, yet multilayered and slightly trippy, texturing without throwing the mind in to a full on psychotropic trip, rather stretching out on scattered cushions while gazing at a ceiling aglow with spinning purple hued crystal refractions of light.

The just under eight and a half minutes antepenultimate track is Journey To The Centre Of The Earth being my pick of the release.

The first song to surface from the EP – Fire And Ice – is itself set for release as a stand alone single on the 2nd of February and is available on bandcamp.

The garage inspired core of their sound, which has seen them become a strong force in the local live music scene, in Fire And Ice is infused with a sitar giving the track a sound steeped in ’60s psychedelia and leaving the listener still tripping long after the just over five minutes song has tucked itself in to bed.

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.

Corniglia – Sleepy Jane – Audio

The Australian dreamwave duo Corniglia released their eponymous LP on the 9th.

Sliding through the room, shimmering like a shoal of mackerel, the music emits flashes of silver and blue in to which the listener wishes to be cloaked, with each of the eleven tracks adding to the sense of hypnotic transcendental meditation.

Clipped guitar is lain abreast of weaving electronica whilst a muffled vocal drifts over the ears gently massaging the synapse rhythms creating a coalescence betwixt audience and Corniglia.

My pick of the release being the penultimate track – Sleepy Jane.

Side By Side has a film-noir filter in to which the listener immediately wishes to dive under the duvet and entangle in crossed limbs. The sliding soundscape reminds the audience to stretch out an arm to grab hold of a lotion in which oil the torso.

The song is presented through a muffled barrier which affords Side By Side its beguiling allure with the sprinkled guitar spraying through a baffled bass and percussion combination while the vocal breathes huskily over the earlobes.
