Exam Season – Cool Beans – Audio

The English emo quartet Exam Season released the EP Smol on the 3rd.

Exam Season

Exam Season

Four tracks of self-deprecating worrisome introspection which is available on bandcamp.

The quartet are not only capable lyric writers deftly able to switch between the insignificantly absurd and the important in interchangeable lines, they are also able to craft the songs to thread those mood shifts with the listener both quietly chuckling along with the dry humour, while dabbing away tears of sadness drawn by the imagery of the barren infertile landscape of a world all too often riven by indifference to others plight.

Cool Beans is the penultimate track.

President Of What? - YELLOW

President Of What?

Frequently featured since their introduction in January of last year, in common with the disparate nature of the music in those articles, the fourteen tracks on the album (which is available on bandcamp) are also of differing tempo, instrumentation and atmosphere – held together by a commonality of taking a jaundiced glance at what are perceived as social and inter-relational norms from a different angle and thereby casting a very different light.

YELLOW is the penultimate song.

A blur of infectious skater fused jumble tumbles out of the room filling the spaces with acrobatic flips and turns in an energetic ball of sound.

The four track EP is available on bandcamp, my pick of which is the closer Black Vans.

The Jersey emo project Astral Cloud Ashes was introduced a couple of years ago.

Earlier in the month a new LP – Dear Absentee Creator – (which is available on bandcamp) was revealed.

The eleven track album threads through a more forlorn and maths driven filter than music previously featured though still maintains the familiar lofidelity gazey hiss which affords the music its attractive patina.

My pick of the release being the penultimate – Gush.

Marrowstone – Life – Video

The US emo outfit Marrowstone release the EP The Heavens, Earth and Sea on the 22nd.



A week in advance of the EP the second of the five tracks Life, which is available on bandcamp, was revealed as a standalone single.

A track that serves as the ideal backdrop for one of those days when gazing out of the window mulling over sad moments from the past.
