Reminders – Making A Scene – Video

The English indie-rock trio Reminders release the EP All Talk, No Action on the 18th of May.



In advance of the full release the track Making A Scene was released as a stand alone single on the 2nd.

A song that quickly switches palette from open framework to compressed rock’n’roll in a track that while offering good time inclusive dance music, is lyrically a cynical contemplation of the world around.

Green Gardens – I’ve Wanted – Single Review

The English luxe-gaze quartet Green Gardens released the single I’ve Wanted on the 30th of March.

Like stepping on to a deep-pile carpet strewn with rose petals Green Gardens have, in I’ve Wanted (available on bandcamp), a piece of music that nestles between the toes and radiates a palpable warmth which spreads through the body.

The retrospective, analogue effect, of I’ve Wanted is delivered in a hushed and unhurried flow of interweaving guitars with a well pitched vocal popping in and out of spotlight as percussion and bass too, jostle for the limelight – which though that sounds as if it can’t possibly work as a concept, is actually the core strength of the creativity as the counterpoints of the elements form the sturdy framework on which the music builds its rich tapestry.

Baker Island – Low Cost Locust – Audio

The four track release (available on bandcamp) is a collection of very different tracks which centre around a subtle synth that allow the quintet to explore quiet eddies and bubbling rivulets with equal finesse.

The dual six stringers hazily weave around the electronica creating the atmospherics of the songs while restful bass and drums sway through the ears with the vocal threading a fine line betwixt the disparate elements of the tracks. While not ripping out the edges of the envelope Baker Island, in the EP, have formulated a release which has a vaguely experimental air and therefore best heard in one, roughly fourteen minutes, sitting to fully enjoy.

By way of a taster of Always, 1995 – the closer Low Cost Locus.

Diablofurs – Pressure Don’t Stop – Video

The English new wave quintet Diablofurs were introduced in 2015 when a newly formed duo.

Diablofurs - Pressure Don't Stop


At that time they were still auditioning for new members to complete the line-up and over the years with the exception of Sue and Rob personnel have changed though never the essence of the sound nor roots from which it is drawn – ’70s and ’80s new wave and the newest song to surface – Pressure Don’t Stop – with its minding of the ’80s outfit Wall Of Voodoo – maintains that source well of creativity.
