The Danish garage rock quartet Tin Can Telescope released the EP Put Down the Chainsaw, Honey on the 8th.

The room fills with bursting flashes of energy on hitting play as the five track EP (available on bandcamp) launches through the speakers in high tempo pulses.
Tin Can Telescope create music with infectious twists and turns of jangling rock’n’roll which has the listener joining in with the unfettered good time music lain, conversely, to introspective lyric. The opening track is The Modern Blues in Silverfish Sandals.
The Danish alt-rock quartet Black Book Lodge release the LP Steeple And Spire on the 18th of May.

The first track to surface from the album (available via target records) – Spoil The Child, which was itself released as a standalone single on the 2nd, showcases their intriguing meld of stoner and progressive rock filtered through strong melodic sections.
The second of the four tracks – Fragments Of A Life – showcases their powerful melodic rock with the two guitars weaving around each other to create tightly weaved texturing as the bass and drum-kit fill give the songs their impetus through which the expressive vocal rounds out the compositions.
The Danish indie-synth band The House are finalising details for the release of the LP – Friendly Fire.
The first track to surface from the album – the title Friendly Fire, which was also made available as a stand alone single on the 2nd finds The House delivering a song with greater spotlight on the synths than much of their music previously featured, which consequently has enabled them to generate a track of atmospheric layering in which the listener can explore the range of frequencies surfacing from the speakers in a song that has a vaguely Ultravox referenced feel.
The Danish atmospheric-rock quintet Mom & Bear released the single Everybody Wants You Dead on the 8th.
Mom & Bear
Despite having been around for a few years Mom & Bear are yet to release their début LP – though word has arrived that this project is underway with the title Bury You Dead and Everybody Wants You Dead (available on bandcamp) which has been lingering in the vaults for a while is the first song to surface from the album.
Layers of guitars, keys, bass, percussion and vocal wrap around the listener akin to gently placed swabs as the delight of the composition lays not only in its dark brooding presence it is equally by the shadowy nature of the music that drifts as though a Brocken Spectre emerging through the clouds in the valley below seen from high on a mountain.
