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.
The Danish garage-rock quartet Tin Can Telescope released the single Scorch Your Face today.

Scorch Your Face (available on bandcamp) is a thumping rock’n’roll number that has the audience delightedly dancing around the room as a thrubbing bass bounces against the spring percussion with guitar skipping through the ears and the vocal, which spins through the ears rounding out a song that sadly only lasts for two and two thirds minutes.
Having had the opportunity to listen to their back catalogue I can attest this is a band to bring out to play anytime life needs an injection of positive energy.
The Danish world-fusion quintet Stranger The Horse released the LP Play It On The Tannoys on the 20th.
Stranger The Horse
Creating music which is marked by its rolling rhythms the listener is minded of watching a horse in easy gait elegantly traversing a dusty plain.
The eight track album (available on bandcamp) is a highly impressive cohesion of latin-dance, roots and world-beat which is knitted in to a fabric of transfixing melodies and harmonies as the guitars, hazy keys and pivoting bass form the skeleton, with the percussion delivering the supple musculature while the vocal affords the flexible skin – in to which the audience becomes immersed by the natural organics of the movements of the music, that has a mood enhancing uplifting presence.
