As A Rival

As A Rival

The music is a combination of radio-indie and riffs of rock that creates a collection of songs which are able to grab the attention of both audiences and keep them entertained, with sufficient gloss to engage supporters of formulaic hooks while jagged edges of unvarnished splinters retain those who like the speakers to rattle.

What We Got is the antepenultimate of the twelve songs on Griefers, which is available on bandcamp.

Molly & The Krells

Carefully negotiating the line between being just another commercial radio-play focused indie band and having some teeth to the music is never an easy path. Molly & Krells are able to step away from merging in to shadows with the grungy blues progressions which flows from the two guitars creating tracks in which the audience actively wants to be immersed.

The first track of the five on the EP is Rejected.

Levy & The Oaks – Another Night Out In Asbury – Audio

The US indie-rock trio Levy & The Oaks released the LP Sound Of The City yesterday.

Levy & The Oaks - Another Night Out In Asbury

Levy & The Oaks

Last featured in 2016, Levy & The Oaks have moved their brushes to a different medium with much of the album being of light textured indie-dance and far from their blues-rock derived earlier music.  That doesn’t mean to say they have completely drifted away and the latter end of the album is more dipped in the earlier paints, making the penultimate song Another Night Out In Asbury my pick of the release.

Sound of the City – EP – Levy and the Oaks is available on iTunes.*

Death And The Penguin – Colour In Me – Video

The English indie-rock quartet Death And The Penguin release the LP Anomie on the 27th.

Death And The Penguin - Colour In Me

Death And The Penguin

A band who first featured in 2014, with one change in line-up, they have always had the knack of unifying maths-rock with emo to create their signature sound of immersive, vaguely dour, indie-rock.

The fifth of the dozen tracks is Colour In Me, is a fair representation of both their style and the album.

Anomie is available on Amazon.*

Cemetery Drive

Links between emo, metal, and indie-dance are forged in to a comprehensible output by the sextet in 2 AM to deliver a song that settles kindly on the ears despite the juxtapositions of root source influences.
