Released as a one track single earlier this year Tin Lion released this again today with an extended instrumental B side, which is available on bandcamp. Rumour has it that a new EP – Escape is set for release later in the year.
Neonfaith from New York in the USA have a new six track EP set for release on the 1st October.
Running at just under 25 minutes Neonfaith continue with their exploration of the luxuriant in this release.
Opening with Escape, a beautifully textured track that rings of the imagery that flows through the music put out by the trio (don’t be confused by the four heads in the artwork). The opener harks of ’70s funfair sounds which have been muted as though through the lens of time.
Next is Lowlands has reversed scratch reflecting in the pools of ebbing water as the band digs ever deeper into the sub-woofer stretching territory. A delightful four and a half minutes of dream electronica.
Tied Together is more percussion led which gives it a more stark and earthy feel and although it only runs for just under three minutes is my pick of the release as it demonstrates the ability Neonfaith to wrest the most out of the least.
Darkest Light heads back towards the opener and is a far lighter texture as the notes are dampened almost as-though recorded through a microphone in a soundproofed room. Superb.
Fifty Three 51 in contrast brings out big echoes and fuzzing to deliver a aurally intoxicating piece of music.
