The synthwave quartet of Ellie Linden, Kim, Patrik and Didrik from Oslo in Norway who form the band Das Body will be releasing their eponymous EP on the 28th.

Soaked in ’80s synth influences Das Boot create music that has a drifting melancholia which weaves through tracks that reflect of both the upbeat spirit of their home town, while anchored in the lesser well perceived introspective air of a city with globally common issues of stark social divide.
The second of the four tracks on the EP, which is available on bandcamp is Know My Name.

Joy Again is a US fuzzy-rock quintet.
Towards the end of last month they put out a couple of singles, one of which was Kim. Which spins through the room like a dayglo whirling-top lifting the spirits of the listener with its infectious blurry guitar, foot-stomping bass / percussion, trippy synths and flurry of vocal – all of which is wrapped up within two minutes.
Kim – Single – Joy Again is available on iTunes.*

The Chinese art-rock quartet P.K. 14 are set to release the EP Music For An Exhibition on the 21st.
Opening the four track release is the hypnotic experimentalism of Kim.
Extending for just over nineteen minutes Kim takes the listener through a journey of shrouded anchoring reference points to avant-garde journey, whilst always retaining the scintilla of a toe-hold in the here and now.
Best approached with a mind refreshed and plenty of time, P.K. 14 are not known for taking prisoners in their stretching compositions. Demanding the audience keeps focussed and Kim is no exception, as to miss one phrase, is to miss the whole track.
Music For An Exhibition will be available on bandcamp through Maybe Mars.
