Desmerelda – This Time – Single Review

The English garage-rock trio Desmerelda were introduced just over a year ago.

Desmerelda - This Time

Desmerelda

Their newest track – This Time – is a mix of spikey-top new wave, progressive-blues and single string, middle-eastern tradition, steel that all rumbles through the room like watching a freight train rush past whilst standing on a railway-station platform with the different shaped carriages speeding along in seemingly random order – hit play and that descriptor will all make much more sense than attempting to work out what any of it means – though before you do – make sure the volume is turned high to fully enjoy the three and a half minutes of music.

This Time [Explicit] is available on Amazon.*

Astral Trip – ROCK TH!S D!SCO – Single Review

The English alt-rock duo Astral Trip released the two track single ROCK TH!S D!SCO – on the 16th.

Astral Trip - ROCK TH!S D!SCO

Astral Trip

Last featured back in 2016 it is good to catch up again with their sludgy beat which always adds to the weave of life.

Rock This Disco (available on bandcamp) finds Astral Trip striding in to the glitterball of nu-disco a development which superbly fits with their signature gloopy sounds which fits like a glove with the darkened shadows of the genre.

Now I’m Free (also available on bandcamp via a separate link) is more reminiscent of their rock derivative and my selection of the two songs.

I apologise, once again, for being late to getting to a feature as it was at the start of this month I was alerted to the EP Spitcoin, which was released last week.

A five track EP of retrospective atmosphere with each song on the approximately eighteen minutes release offering a different perspective on life around and a band I look forward to hearing much more of over the coming years.

By way of an introduction – the opening song on the EP – Drench – and longer stay readers will understand completely why this is my pick of the release with the Blondie – Union City Blues – chord progressions opening.

The just over three and five sixths of a minutes track is, as suggested on the tin, drawn from US blues tradition as the growling dirty notes scurry across the floor enveloping the audience in dusty gritty guitar and percussion to which the quartet add a distinctly UK spin with Tri-State Blues developing in to a anthemic pub-rock derived stomper as the distinctive vocal winds its way through the room.

Mellor have once again revealed a song that adds to the tapestry of global music and one to be added to the collection of – good time rock’n’roll.

Tri-State Blues is available on Amazon.*

Wasabi Fire Alarm – Two Fingers In A V – Audio

The English alt-rock quartet Wasabi Fire Alarm will be releasing the EP Two Fingers In A V next month.

Wasabi Fire Alarm

Wasabi Fire Alarm

Formed after a change of line-up and a desire to explore a new direction, from the quintet Resistance only in March – Wasabi Fire Alarm have hit the ground running.

The first track to surface and title song Two Fingers In A V is set to a soundtrack which has an unstructured carefree abandonment  and a spirited enjoyment of life with the listener being taken back to the era, particularly of the ’60s, when much of the music emerging was a celebration of the very fact of creating music, rather than what is so often currently, a studious investigation in template design and this joie de vivre is palpable through the speakers.

Though don’t be fooled by the free-spirited compositions, as this strikes of the very heart of what is their essence and raison d’être – a protestation against a world of turgid conformity.
