Why Bonnie – Practice – Audio

The US dreamgaze quartet Why Bonnie release their début EP In Water on the 16th.

Why Bonnie

Why Bonnie

A four track, roughly thirteen minutes, EP (available on bandcamp) which fills the room with luxurious plumes of delayed-echoing guitar, dream-sequence electronica, fused percussion, dampened bass and a luxurious vocal resulting in an overall sound that minds of a scrumptious baked brie just out of the oven.

The second song is Practice.

Having now had the opportunity to listen to the full five track release (available on bandcamp) I am able to reaffirm my initial thoughts when featuring the title track back in November, that this is an EP to grab hold of on release.

Each song on the roughly twenty three minutes release is of slightly different texturing whilst each leaves the listener drawing thoughts of time having been slowed while gazing at distant galaxies expanding and contracting.

I draw particular attention to the closing track Love You Twice, which I am not able to share at this stage, though that isn’t to say the track I am able to feature – Hidden Places – is in anyway of lesser ingenuity.

CORTA – Sure To Exist – Video

CORTA is a new English dreamgaze outfit.

Their début song – Sure To Exist – slides through the room in backwashes of curling guitar, pulsing percussion, rumbling bass and echoing vocal that minds the listener of laying on a shoreline at night and listening to the soft bubbles of tidal surf lapping over a sandy beach.

CORTA, on the basis of the one song that exists, are a set of musicians who have much to offer the world of music and are a band I look forward to hearing much more from in the ensuing years.

Blushing – Weak – Video

The US dreamgaze quartet Blushing release the EP Weak on the 18th of January 2018.

Blushing

A five track EP that will be released by the band on bandcamp as a digital version alternatively on vinyl via Austin Town Hall Records – also on bandcamp.

The title track, which is the the first of the five Weak – is a dreamy layer of shoegazey guitar and mesmerising vocal that seems to have discovered a means to slow down the speed of sound as the instrumentation and vocals apparently hang suspended in the air long after they should theoretically have disappeared, the drum-kit is also in on the act with cymbals extending phrases.

On the basis of the title song this will be an EP to add to the collection and bring out when discussing the physics of sound.

Unusually, when there is an option, on this occasion I selected the video rather than a higher quality audio version as the slow-motion playback encapsulates my thoughts visually.

My Sad Captains

Regardless of where you turn the speakers My Sad Captains in the first reveal from the album, Everything At The End Of Everything, which is the second of the ten tracks shimmers across the room akin to gazing at a calm ocean from the shore for a period of a full twenty four hours and the further the eye-line is drawn so the insignificance of ones own life becomes apparent, though rather than leaving the listener feeling disconsolate so they become more delighted in their own existence, capturing it for every precious moment.
