Combinations of eastern European traditions of guitar and western European current electronica enable LIANA to deliver songs which have an alluring primordial resonance tied around a composite-carbon mast affording the music the ability to sink deep in to the marrowbone, while simultaneously handy to take to a party to drop in to the mix when moments need a lift.
The most recent song is Psycho – which has been undergoing revisions throughout its journey with the final version surfacing only this month.
The alternative rock quartet St. Tropez from the Netherlands will be launching a new LP on the 1st of May from 18:00 to 20:00 (CEST) at what will be their pop-up studio in one of the units at Lil ‘Amsterdam – Amstelpassage – on the East side of Amsterdam Central Station.
Three songs have surfaced from the album with The Other and its fibrous tautology being my pick of those I am able to share.
The dancehall undecim Roots Rising from the Netherlands are finalising details of the release of the LP The Root Sessions.
Crisis, in a live recording, a commentary on the continuing damage of grinding the poor which is still continually justified by the 1% as necessary yet caused by the financial greed of that same 1% at the start of this decade which resulting in banks collapsing, is the second song to be to be revealed from the album.
Word arrives that the alt-rock septet Molino from the Netherlands are working towards the release of a new EP.

The track Forlorn, from the forthcoming release is of darker electronica than music of theirs which has featured previously with a throbbing bass pulse that shuffles the sub-woofer around the room as it bends the window glass – laying, as it does, against a forlorn vocal – affording the composition a menacing shadow that looms over the the threshold which is heralded by a stereophonic of heralding brass.
I very much look forward to the new EP – about which I am unable to tell you much at this stage, for which I apologise, though will expand upon in due course.
