Dream Homeless

Dream Homeless fill the room with a controlled rage, which allows them to deliver unexpected filet mignon along with more muscular brisket providing the listener with a combination that grabs hold of the throat whilst gently dusting off the shoulders. Hence the music can cope with being blasted out of fully opened speakers, yet equally able to absorb the attention at more modest decibels.

An ever driving percussion harries along the material, whilst and industrious bass builds the mood, with the guitar able to find the room to add the more melodic twists and turns, to which the vocal whirls between invective and explanation.

Formed a few years ago, it was only this month that Dream Homeless released their début LP Not For The Glory, Just For The Party and I only hope it isn’t another three years before those of us who don’t get to see them live are able to join in with the infectious joy of the trio.

Our Last Enemy

Make sure there are no loose items in the room as you hit the play button for Our Last Enemy as the scything guitars and rattling percussion tear around from wall to wall like a maelstrom. Whilst the speed and ability to take speakers turned up very high is impressive, it is the control within the quintet that impresses me most. Without diluting any of the force of power, Our Last Enemy is able to deliver the pent-up aggression inside well constructed pieces.

The addition of the keys, allows the band to add a finesse to the out-put that is often lacking in the genre, which additionally gives the material a more menacing over-bearing presence. There is a slightly gothic feel to the out-put, without it ever delving into the cellar, but this theatrical element allows Our Last Enemy to provide sounds which extend far beyond the normal confines to be anticipated.

It is 05:30 on a Sunday as I scribe this review and sometimes, you just need something to blow away the must of the night before and Our Last Enemy is a band who certainly do this, though their more usual home won’t be found as the sun rises, rather heaving masses in a mosh-pit.
