The Canadian electro-dance project Melotika released the LP Unaware on the 9th.
An intriguing eight track album, which offers songs of very different dimension and flow. Sections of the album are more user friendly than others and by necessity it is those moments of quirkiness that drew me to an album in a genre that very rarely features.
The Canadian dream-rock project Twilight Fields released the LP Our Time Is Now on the 15th.
Regularly featuring since being introduced in 2016 the album (available on bandcamp) finds a less melancholic mood than much of the material previously featured, though still of contemplative narrative.
The eleven track, roughly fifty six minutes, LP reflects on the value of close relationships in a world which is becoming ever more fractured.
The England based Canadian coldwave project of Chloé Raunet – C.A.R. – releases the LP PINNED on the 16th.
Surfacing from the album (available on bandcamp) within the past few hours, Swaggart, the seventh of the eleven tracks, casts a foreboding beauty to the room – much like watching supercell clouds building in a sunlit day with the multitude of colours refracted by the light through the condensing, hailstone forming, water droplets whilst storing charged electrical pulses set to roar overhead as the ever spiraling architecture builds towards the troposphere – yet far from phased by the warning the listener finds themselves transfixed by the formulation of the imperious exquisite shapes.
The Canadian darkwave project of Remi Monroe – Eye Steal – is finalising details of the LP From Worm To Ink for release later this year.
It appears that today is another of those demanding for apologies to one and all for late conveyance, this too has been long in abeyance in the winding entrails of my email inbox – though on this occasion from an initial introduction of November last year.
No End, from the forthcoming album which surfaced this month, is a dark platelet of oxygen starved blood in to which the listener is drawn to offer their own sacrifice to extend the dying breaths of an imposing composition which attests of an album that I anticipate to be an essential to the ‘music that makes a difference’ playlist.
Late as I may be, I highly recommend getting to know Eye Steal and look forward to being able to feature future material.
