Jannick Brochdorf (Vocal), Niels Alex Larsen (Lead Guitar / Vocal), Lars Ulrik Le Fevre (Guitar / Vocal), Martin Poulsen (Bass) and Daniel Nielsen (Drums) from Copenhagen (Denmark) who form the rock band Statement are finalising details for a forthcoming LP.
The track I Wonder Why, from the forthcoming album, was also made available as a standalone single on the 19th.
The opening phrases set the listener on to a heavy-metal mindset as guitar sets up the anticipated thunderous roar, only for Statement to take the listener on a completely different direction of travel by revealing a tempered rock ballad in to which the audience quickly settles as the quintet deliver a song with both passages of tenderness as well as furious pace all within the framework of their signature sound of multilayered texturing.
On the 5th the Copenhagen (Denmark) psychedelic quartet Emil Thorenfeldt, Frederik Denning, Kasper Andersen and Rasmus Christensen known as Mythic Sunship release the LP – Another Shape of Psychedelic Music.
An hour and a quarter of expanded hallucinogenic meanderings warp their way through the six track album (available via El Paraiso Records), an LP which does demand plenty of time to be able fully and usefully contemplate prior to going anywhere near the play button.
The compositions thread experimentalism with stacked layers of texturing to create an engrossing ambient journey of sound in to which the audience is invited to allow themselves to explore, in free-form, underused elements of the imagination.
The second track is Backyard Ritual – those who know the band will be struck, immediately, by the infusion of saxophone which enables Mythic Sunship to take their compositions in to even greater reaches than previous material.
The Danish atmospheric-folk outfit Death Machine are finalising details for the release of the LP Isle Of Mine.
The first track to surface from the album is the title track Isle Of Mine which was, itself, made available as a standalone single on bandcamp on the 14th.
The track is pivoted around a rolling sequence of ever expanding curls which spread through the room creating a sense of a soundtrack for settling in to a planetarium gazing at the imagery of the universe.
The Danish rock quintet Black Swamp Water are due to release the LP Distant Thunder on the 24th.
Black Swamp Water
The first track to surface from the album, which was itself released as a stand alone single on the 27th of July is the delta-blues number Bitter Harvest, that curls around the audience like the twisted roots of a swamp cypress.
