Illegal Operation – Down – CD and Vinyl

The sludgy rock oozes out of the speakers like gloopy mud and the listener gets the sense that the bass strings are so loose that they are probably also being sent through the speakers and the audience is left to revel in the squelching darkness in which they are coated.

The first track to surface from the six track album (available on bandcamp) the title and opener – Down – is a piece of music that seems to find moss on the underside of moss as the unhurried yet meticulous combinations of guitar, keys and percussion revolve inside each other, whilst bass and a superlative vocal cloud the ears.

The opening track of the eight on the album (available on bandcamp) , The Quick And The Dead,  serves as a decent introduction to a trio who combine spiraling drifts of psychedelic scent to a garage-rock soundtrack, giving the music a feeling of intimacy with the listener.

Drawing seeds from the late ’60s and early ’70s Whereswilder create music that warms up the room with its retrospective expansive landscape as they interplay sharp definitions with blurry edges giving tracks an ever changing structure in which to becalm the day.

The third of the twelve tracks, This Feeling, is the first song to surface from the album (available on bandcamp).

Baby Guru – Palace In The Sun – Audio

The Greek synth-rock quartet Baby Guru released the LP IV on the 28th of February.

Baby Guru

Reflective of their approach to music, which threads through various iterations, the eight track, about forty minutes album (available on bandcamp) takes a broad brush to the canvas delivering a wide ranging soundscape in which the listener can dip in and out of or listen to in one sitting to enjoy the ideas presented.

My selection from IV is the sixth track – Palace In The Sun.
