There is a depressive sadness to the music which is difficult to specifically identify, though nonetheless the thread holding the two tracks central fulcrum giving the material an almost fatalistic air of hopeless despondency.

This dour mood stands as a stark contrast to the expansive compositional range of the tracks, particularly in my pick of the release Land Of Anxiety, which is laced with soaring gothic arches of synthesis and voice. On listening to the roughly eight and three quarters minutes of the two songs (available on bandcamp) don’t expect a catharsis as, in this release, Jay Draper & The Subterraneans are not attempting to shine a candle out of a dark tunnel, rather reflect of dark, ominous, entrapment.

Rosser – Tiny Hot Spot – Single Review

Rosser is a relatively new US electro-rock quintet.

The first track to surface Tiny Hot Spot is a vintage-rock feast that strides through the room in a cloak of bluesy riffs, off-beat percussion and lancing bass all adorned by a glitterball of synth with a vocal straddling the reference point, while extending a hand to the audience to join them on the floor to party away the night.

I look forward to hearing more from an outfit who have, in Tiny Hot Spot, demonstrated the ability to generate good time rock’n’roll that has the gumption to leave oily footprints in its wake that linger longer in the mind.
