The newest track to surface, which is from the planned LP and released as a standalone single (available on bandcamp) on the 11th, Lint Roller is of not dissimilar vernacular though with clarinet, played by Elana Riordan,  sprouting through the mix able to take the listener on a diametrically opposed journey to music previously featured.

There is something of a Japanese folk tradition to the tempo and weave of the composition through which Sryem Hctim spears sharpened lances, affording Lint Roller a discombobulating discordance that rattles the vestibular system, rather than being left with a sickening dizzying the listener finds the imbalances an unanticipated comfort.

Park Planet – The Ba Bang – Single Review

The Scottish glitch-wave outfit Park Planet surfaced with a new track yesterday.

Park Planet - The Ba Bang

Park Planet

Prior to listening to The Ba Bang, do make sure the windows and doors are opened, not to cause maximum disturbance to others rather the reverse, as, regardless of the volume, like a shaken bottle of fizz, on uncorking the track a wave of pressure bursts out of the speakers that otherwise would break door hinges and window glass.

Always, on receipt of a note by Park Planet that there is a new song about, I never quite know what I will be invited to hear, though I do know it will always be an aural feast of unbridled proportions and The Ba Rang, with its ebbing and froing wooshes of synthesis, which has an industrial dystopia to the soundtrack, is a further example.

Combinations of eastern European traditions of guitar and western European current electronica enable  LIANA to deliver songs which have an alluring primordial resonance tied around a composite-carbon mast affording the music the ability to sink deep in to the marrowbone, while simultaneously handy to take to a party to drop in to the mix when moments need a lift.

The most recent song is Psycho – which has been undergoing revisions throughout its journey with the final version surfacing only this month.

Fairweather Friendship Bracelet combines changes in rhythm and variations of pacing  in the various layers to deliver a song that has a moody darkness to it as the blurred vocal pairs with a plethora of instrumentation including toy-piano, kalimba, bass guitar and much more, all of which, creates a sound of organic pulsing movement that warps itself around the audience in morose textured shapes of sound.

King Catcher – Down Down Down – Single Review

The latest song to be released by the English duo King Catcher, which was revealed on the 25th, is the glitch-wave Down Down Down.

There is a retrospective air to Down Down Down which draws sap from the rootstock of ’70s hiphop whilst winding down the pace to give the song a distinctive spot, not only in their own catalogue, but also in the current lexicon of the rise of reformation disco, which is their more usual specific gravity.

No matter how many times you play the song each run through will catch you discombobulated by the variation of expansion and compression at the end of each of the bars which gives the track a slightly unsettling tempo, that draws the audience to just – check again.

Down Down Down is available on Amazon.*
