The English dark-rock outfit Crows will be releasing the EP Cold Comfort on the 18th of November.
Each time I return to Crows so they seem to find a way to disport further disembowelled bottomless cavernous mine-shafts of misery.
The opening track on the EP – The Itch, akin to a black-hole will countenance no illumination as the dampened bass and lowly strung guitar strings glottal stop further enunciation whilst punctuated percussion slams around the room in unfettered frustration as the scant regard to emotive projection is provided by the automation of vocal as Crows describe of the dystopian presence which they perceive from outside their reality.
Once again Crows are able to aurally describe the reality of life for many people in a world so intent on the prescribed ‘doing the right thing’ they have forgotten what those words actually mean in reality rather than in ‘newspeak’ of the dystopic realism of what is now proscribed as to ‘do the right thing’.
There must be a reason I haven’t yet featured the electro-gaze quintet Taken By Cars from the Philippines – but I have no idea what of why.
Taken By Cars
A live version of an as yet unreleased track – Crows explains precisely my amazement at my own remiss and apologies to everyone that it has taken me eight years to get to a band you needed to know of a long time ago.
The English alt-rock band Crows are set to release the EP Unwelcome Light on the 25th of March.
Occasionally I find myself with bands ‘on trend’ and such is the case with Crows. Today has been a strange day of music reviews. Music is always of moment in time and I guess today has been one of me in mellow mood.
The penultimate of the five tracks – Whisper expostulates all that is the best of Crows with their ability to expunge the extraneous in a pummelling just over three and a half minutes of sparring grunts and thumps.
