Eggs On Mars

Apologies, once again, despite this hanging around in my email inbox since the 8th I have only just caught the news of an album which came out earlier this month, once again I am late.

The ten track LP, Mama Pancake (available on bandcamp) is a more complete and rounded sound than their earlier introduction, though of similar sad countenance with the listener captivated by the slowly drifting melodies that fill the room with lingering notes that hang in the air like hazy regretful memories.

Many Minds, the third song, being my pick of the release.

The Volks - alt rock from the USA

The Volks

Bringing sounds from across the Atlantic into Alabama makes for an interesting sound that The Volks produce. I can’t say I didn’t have a sense of trepidation before hitting the music link of a band called The Volks from the White Supremacist heartland of Southern USA, but I was immediately put at ease. The quintet offer music with a broad international appeal as they break out the conundrum of the environs with a welcoming sound.

To try and more closely define the out-put – psychedelic revivalist Mod would serve as a differentiator and on their debut eponymous LP rebounds of analogue 8 track recordings, giving the material an instant authenticity and energy. The American twang adds a piquant of interest to me as a Brit and the coalescence of influences makes for an out-put I would like to keep hearing.

Never seeking to get ahead of themselves, The Volks, have given themselves time to develop songs which flow easily and settle with the audience instantaneously and the time they have afforded for their development has been well spent in defining a smartly pressed stack of songs.
