Released as a standalone single today (available on bandcamp) – Fest In Midgard -, which is the second single to appear from Kauna, opens to a quiet strumming in to which the mind prepares for a softly laid celtic ballad only for the scabrous vocal to hurtle though the speakers, immediately cloaking the room in a bewitching Nordic folk-tale of legendary battles in dark forests.

Odd Beholder

Odd Beholder

A ten track album (available on bandcamp) of drifting melancholia that rotates through the room in gentle undulations which has a sad isolation as the release reflects of a world in which digital pixel connections are, for many, a validation of self-worth.

Loneliness is the third song.

Rather than taking the listener on a gentle glass-eyed ride, Dirty Sound Magnet are a band who are politically charged – and that of course is one reason why I enjoy their output, along with the quality of the work – as they cast wary eye on the world around and the listener feels they are on some sort of a nightmare of a trip as the dystopian template spins around the head.

From the twelve track album – Homo Economicus – which is the fourth.

Western Lies – Dirty Sound Magnet is available on iTunes.*
