The first song to be revealed from the EP has surfaced as a live performance of Soft Skeleton, a track that melts in to the limbic system.

Each time Moon Panda have featured there has been something different about the set-up. Initially a US based duo in 2016, an England based duo last year, now a trio, though still based in England – the consistency has always been the quality of the output and its dreamy demeanour which gently flows around the listener.

The closing track of the five on the EP – She Knows -, which was released on the 17th, Ghosts is a spellbinding just over four minute composition that drifts around the room in gracious layers which wrap the listener in immersive instrumentation whilst the mesmeric vocal enthrals.

A band who first featured well over seven years ago still retain their mysterious soundtrack and despite having one fewer players seem to have become ever darker over the years as their output coats the listener in its spectral translucence.

From the forthcoming album, the first of the eight tracks, Alone With The Stars is best engaged in a shrouding crematorium early morning fog as the ghostly four and a half minutes of mesmerising soundscape spins its gossamer threads around the audience.

Secret Fires – Ofeliadorme is available on iTunes.*

Lasă Copilu – Lasă – Audio

The Germany based ethereal rock quartet Lasă Copilu released the LP Glowcore towards the end of last month.

Lasă Copilu

The quartet all from different countries met in the creative hotspot of Berlin, Germany, in 2014 and joined forces to deliver music which has an hypnotic grace that mesmerises the audience in its ambient glow.

Combinations of electronics, instrumentation and voices melt in to each other to reveal music in which the listener becomes as one with the sounds. Tracks which each have slightly different nuances and are not all sung in the same language, affords the just under fifty minutes of Glowcore (available on bandcamp) a mysterious beauty. Of the running time, the closer, Factory Man accounts for heading on towards twenty six minutes.

Always keen to explore the slightly different – my selection from the album is the second track Lasă which features – even getting short solo-break – a wine-glass.
