New Year Ninety 2018 – 60 to 51

Again the The New Year Ninety Chart as selected by the readers’ of the site contains musicians from every continent, barring one, Antarctica, from where no band has ever featured, though something I still aim to rectify at some point in time – from  60 to 51.

Mike Bankhead – Carry On – Audio

The US alt-rock creator Mike Bankhead releases the LP Echo In The Crevices on the 1st of July.

The thirteen track album (available on bandcamp) has an air of sadness around it as the luxurious carpet of quietly paced rock lays across the room. Working with other musicians and a wide spread of instruments the approximately fifty seven minutes LP has a mix of ideas and hues to it, leaving the listener happily laying back and absorbing the varied texturing of what is an impressive release by a self evidently talented song writer.

There is only the one song around that I am able to share at this juncture, not my selection of the release which is Le Soldat, nonetheless the ninth track Carry On, which is a track of greater tempo than much of the album, is a decent introduction to Echo In The Crevices.
