Martin Dick – Mess – Audio

The Argentinian gazewave creator is finalising the details of the forthcoming EP IV.

Martin Dick - Mess

Martin Dick

A musician it is always a pleasure to catch-up with be it as part of Tirman Kid or as a solo artist.

The first track to be revealed from the EP is the ambient undulations of the soft brushes of synth in the song Mess.

Baby Guru – Palace In The Sun – Audio

The Greek synth-rock quartet Baby Guru released the LP IV on the 28th of February.

Reflective of their approach to music, which threads through various iterations, the eight track, about forty minutes album (available on bandcamp) takes a broad brush to the canvas delivering a wide ranging soundscape in which the listener can dip in and out of or listen to in one sitting to enjoy the ideas presented.

My selection from IV is the sixth track – Palace In The Sun.

Stegall

Sometimes a band name makes perfect sense  – Stegall is the synth-rock trio of three sisters of the eponymous surname – Clara (vocals), Sydney (guitar) and Liza (keyboards) from London in Canada.

Stegall

Hitting the ground running, having formed recently, Stegall offer music which resonates of their upbringing which saw them move across swathes of The USA and the music provides an inclusive international quality. Light on the feet, they are not trying to recreate the wheel, rather add embellishments to a genre and this they do with some style.


A delightful bass sweeps along the music and the percussion is thoughtfully programmed allowing the vocals and tonality to hold the attention of the audience as Stegall showcase their compositions which belies the age of the band.

Having spent considerable energy in getting the on-line and visual elements right, they have also recently released their perhaps appropriately named début EP IV, which evidences these are more than glossy marketers. As a template for new bands Stegall are stellar examples.

The next step will be to see how this transposes to a live environment and they are booked for a  tour in Eastern Canada later this year. I look forward to catching up with Stegall later in the year to see how it is all developing. For now, well worth catching at the start of what has the foundations for a promising career.
