Occasional releases surface, having had the opportunity to listen to the back catalogue, I would recommend digging in to the archives as the music is best tasted in large measure to fully immerse in to the fragile, tear streaked compositions.

The songs take a look at various aspects of life’s insecurities and uncertainties – the most recent of which 6AM (available on bandcamp – as are all the singles) touches on the emotional, heartaching nature, of the intensity of transient relationships.

The track combines electronica and natural instrumentation which serves as a mood shifting backdrop to the breaking, expressive and completely captivating vocal.

Beans on Toast – Magic – Video

It has been just over a year since the English protest-folk project of Jay McAllisterBeans On Toast – last featured. On the 1st the latest LP A Bird In The Hand was released.

As has proven to be the case with each of the previous nine albums, all of which have had a release date of the 1st of December, the tracks revolve around both personal experiences while cognisant of a wider world.

A Bird In The Hand (available on vinyl directly from the Beans On Toast website) is as much a celebration of the birth of a child as it is a reflection of the supporting structures outside the immediate family – with each of the ten tracks being both upbeat while simultaneously scathing of a society in which the silo has become the norm.

Although I am unable to share my pick of the release – Here At Homerton Hospital – the fourth track, the third track – Magic which I am, serves as fine introduction.

There is a reason I implore of readers to suggest they are wasting their time as they are not listening to music merely noise who listen to the music featured on the site using the tinny squeaks of anything other than a full speaker system (unless they are in a geo-political location where there are no viable alternative options) and this is a prime example of why having at least five speakers is essential.

Turn up the volume and the sub-woofers to feel the windows, walls and floor buckle and bend to the intoxicating flow of the title track and opener The Shaman (available on bandcamp) while the mind and body flows in to the beat of the rhythm whilst drifting in to a trance of primordial synchronicity.

A couple of tracks from the eleven have been revealed in advance of the début album, which is available on bandcamp.

Both are floor filling shape-shifting sonics that burrow deep in to the mind and leave the audience lost in a trance.

By way of an introduction – the hypnotic primordial rotations of the middle track on the LP – What.

Lament, which surfaced yesterday is highlighted by the intricacy of vocal and the delicacy of the feathered acoustic guitar which when taken together gives the composition something of the feeling of mythical folklore and signposts of an LP which I look forward to hearing more from in due course.
