Another band who seem to appear on the site only once a year having first featured in 2016.



The new single identifies a year spent well with Wake Up Freya being their, to my mind, most intricate song thus far released.

There is a gentle timorous frailty of vocal which threads through the composition affording the theme its central pivot seeking to narrate tentative advice to a new-born whilst self-doubting the counselling provided as the building layers of instrumentation afford a guarding layer of protection and caring support in to which the listener is invited to join arms.

Marsicans will be embarking on a six stop England, Scotland tour next month:

1st of March – Birmingham, Sunflower Lounge
2nd of March – London, Borderline
3rd of March – Bristol, Louisiana
7th of March – Glasgow, Garage (Attic)
8th of March – Manchester, Deaf Institute
10th of March – Leeds, Church

Wake Up Freya is available on Amazon.*

Sugarmen – Central Line – Video

The English indie quartet Sugarmen released the LP Live Freaks on the 10th.

Sugarmen - Central Line

Sugarmen – Central Line

A nine track release recorded live in Sheffield (England) – the mod tinctured second song – Central Line – zings through the room in soaring temperament which finds the listener, even if they were not at the gig, stamping around their own venue with arms raised aloft and feet hitting the ground with enough force to immediately rebound skywards.

Live Freaks – Sugarmen is available on iTunes.*

Marsicans – Throw Ourselves In – Audio

The English indie quartet Marsicans released the single Throw Ourselves In on the 3rd.




With a more earthy sound to it than their last feature – Throw Ourselves In is highlighted by the double time percussion which gives the track a tempo that rips straight in to the brain, while the flexibility of guitar gives the song its crustiness with bass and vocal setting up phrases for the audience to get involved.

The end of the month sees them on a brief England, Scotland tour with Jaws.

24 Nov – Liverpool, Magnet
26 Nov – Newcastle, Riverside
27 Nov – Edinburgh, The Caves
29 Nov – York, The Crescent
30 Nov – Sheffield, Plug
01 Dec – Birmingham O2 Institute

Throw Ourselves In – Single – Marsicans is available on iTunes.*

Ventrelles – She’s Got It Down – Audio

Ventrelles is an English indie outfit.

Ventrelles

Ventrelles

Their début single She’s Got It Down is centred around a dreamy melodic flow of guitars, which harks back to Factory Records, taking the listener on a beguiling ride of psychedelic colours, in a track that attests to the strong songwriting skills that lay behind the output as the song unhurriedly drifts through its just over three and a third minutes duration.

The last of the five tracks – Let Go – was revealed yesterday.

Perhaps the most expressive and layered track of the EP with a marked slowing down of pace in the opening segment and a song which is highlighted by shimmering echoing guitars and the depth of bass giving the composition a feeling of sadness – unsurprisingly – making it my pick of the release.

Frequency Illusion – EP – Young Earth is available on iTunes.*
