Black Leather Jacket – Village People – Video

Occasionally it makes sense to have everyone singing in chorus and with Black Leather Jacket – it most certainly does as the listener finds themselves joining in too with the first track to surface, from what I anticipate to be an LP for party night, Village People – filling the room with a joyful unornamented buzz of good-time energy… where did setting eleven go on the volume dial?

RIVE – Fauve – Video

From Brussels (Belgium) the dreamwave duo of Juliette Bossé (Guitar / Keys / Vocals) and Kévin Mahé (Drums / Electronica) who perform as RIVE will be releasing their début LP – Narcose – on the 1st of March 2019.


The first track to surface from the album – Fauve – indicates of an album that will cosset the listener in softly spaced silken layers of immersive synthetics rounded by a mesmerising vocal that holds the mind transfixed.

The first track to surface from the album (itself available as a standalone single on bandcamp) I’m Not Dead – is a just over eight minute exposition of atmospheric instrumental rock that takes the listener in to a journey of imaginative interconnecting spacious melodies which have something of a celestial science-fiction feel in which time and motion become abstract notions.

I Am Death opens with bass strings so loose that it is possible to feel the twang of the steel springs through the speakers – meaning there is little likelihood I could pass by the first song to surface from the album without suggesting spending time in their company.
