I am a tad late to this, my apologies to one and all, having had the email sitting around in my inbox since early in the month.

They recently released the LP Lighthouse, which is available on bandcamp. A six track release which has the listener desirous of living in an almost inaccessible dark cave on the side of a rock face to fully enjoy the dank mossy sounds of -11-, with the deep timbre of the songs echoing around the ears akin to a primeval malevolent spell.

The fourth song is Dust Bowl.

The twisting guitar and gnarled vocal burrow themselves deep in to the marrow of the listener in the first of the eleven songs on the album (which is available on bandcamp) hooking the audience to the enveloping brooding ensuing collection of songs.

Their signature sound of throbbing bass, flirtatious guitar and husky vocal makes for a band who never need to raise the volume to raise the temperature.

In support of the release of the LP Elysian Fields play September warm up and launch shows in the USA followed by a tour taking in spots in France, Germany and Poland during October and one date in November.

Rachel M & Ceri Davies – Is He Sleeping? – Audio

The England based dark-rock collaboration of Rachel M and Ceri Davies will be releasing the LP Rehabilitated on the 6th of June.

Rachel M

Rachel M

Is He Sleeping?, from the forthcoming nine track album, is a dark rumble of crunched guitar and eerie vocal that surveys the room in a disdainful manner as it paces back and forth in ever more impatient mood creating an atmosphere fraught with tension which transfers to the listener, filling them with a sense of fearful uncertainty and chilling dread.

Θάνος Ανεστόπουλος (Thanos Anestopoulos) – Θυμάμαι (I Remember) – Audio

The Greek dark-rock creator Θάνος Ανεστόπουλος (Thanos Anestopoulos) through Inner Ear Records releases the posthumous eponymous LP on the 12th.

Θάνος Ανεστόπουλος (Thanos Anestopoulos)

Θάνος Ανεστόπουλος

A ten track album of rolling dark clouds which fill the room with a dour melancholia as a rich baritone and crunchy instrumentation mold around one another and the listener finds themselves completely transfixed by the superlative voice as it seeps hypnotically in to the mind.

An experienced musician, who died last year, so this will be the first and last feature, sadly, with a catalogue dating back to early this decade, though sparse of releases, it is always a delight to be transported in to the world of Θάνος Ανεστόπουλος.

The third of the songs on the LP (which is available on bandcamp) is Θυμάμαι (I Remember).

Meggie Brown – Coming Back Again – Single Review

The English dark-rock project Meggie Brown released the début single Coming Back Again yesterday.

Meggie Brown

Meggie Brown

An intriguing one hundred and fifty five seconds reveal which needs the subwoofers to be set to full boost and everything else left as was, though kicked to loudest volume, with windows open (if you are in the nippy climes in which I exist today as I type (else move the freezer and open the door to try that) prior to hitting play to allow the chill blast of soundwaves to ripple the hairs on the forearm to form their own goosebumps in to the descent of every more gloomy self-doubt which circles the brain.

Set to a hypnotic guitar that takes control over the anteroinferior region of the temporal lobe, rather than descending in to an anxiety the listener finds themselves closing down access to the amygdala with glowing feeling of euphoria.
