The England based dark-rock collaboration of Rachel M and Ceri Davies will be releasing the LP Rehabilitated on the 6th of June.
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.
In the past featuring on the site as part of the England based bands Betty Pulls A Fast One and LiiN – Malo Ramsoir is also a solo alt-acoustic-rock creator and on the 27th will be releasing the EP To The Village.
A four track collection of folk tinged songs that fill the room with a sense of nostalgia and invites the listener to gaze wistfully out of the window, through its roughly twelve minutes duration, while recalling bittersweet moments in life.
The opening track is of To The Village (available on bandcamp) – When I Track You Down – is also the most sprightly on the EP and something of an outlier.
The England based Canadian coldwave project of Chloé Raunet – C.A.R. – releases the LP PINNED on the 16th.
Surfacing from the album (available on bandcamp) within the past few hours, Swaggart, the seventh of the eleven tracks, casts a foreboding beauty to the room – much like watching supercell clouds building in a sunlit day with the multitude of colours refracted by the light through the condensing, hailstone forming, water droplets whilst storing charged electrical pulses set to roar overhead as the ever spiraling architecture builds towards the troposphere – yet far from phased by the warning the listener finds themselves transfixed by the formulation of the imperious exquisite shapes.
AJK James is an England based electro-blues project.
The most recent song to surface, which appeared on the 3rd, Here Comes Your Fight draws in, like a magnet, tinctures of disparities of ideas to deliver a soft orb which, much like a stress ball, that by its tactile squigginess makes everything external seem peripheral and thereby sloughs off the wrinkles of the day.
Despite being ambient in delivery, there is much happening underneath the surface, with electronica pooling thoughts of space odyssey and percussion loops providing the motion as the synthesised guitar gently unfurls in the undulations of the sound while a quietly rippling vocal tickles the earlobes.
The England based sadcore creator Michael Gilham released the single Dear, Rose on the 18th.
Led by jazz-fused minor progressive chords on pianoforte Dear, Rose (available in bandcamp) teeters in to the room akin to a cat testing its paws on surface water prior to spotting a dry landing space in which to leap and pleasurably snaffle and wriggle in catnip whilst keeping a wary eye out for rainclouds overhead while the exquisite vocal threads through the ears taking the mind to spaces of melancholic thought whilst simultaneously feeling a catharsis and easement of life’s woes flowing out of the veins.
It was way back in November 2016 that Michael first made contact and merely today that the knots have tied, for which I apologise to one and all.
