The English sad folk project of Thomas Matthew Bower – Thomas & The Empty Orchestra released the EP Let Go on the 20th.
A roughly seventeen minutes, four track, EP of worrisome wistful introspection that captures the imagination and lifts the audience in to their own reflections of loss.
As is so often the case with melancholic and reflective music, rather than being left with a sense of hopelessness despite having been drawn in to dark folds in the memory, the listener leaves with a sense of catharsis having shared a moment with another to explore the past and see a future with a brighter light.
The opening song, In The Eaves, being my pick of the release.

On the 7th the Irish indie quartet Young Earth will be releasing the EP Frequency Illusion.
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.

Within the past twenty four hours the English rapper Winstan released the latest couple of tracks.
Frequently surfacing with new material each of different temperature, of the two that surfaced most recently Let Go caught my attention.
A track which challenges the desire of chasing ‘perfect looks and lifestyle’ as espoused by style magazines, resulting in plastic lives, plastic bodies and plastic intentions whilst extending the offer – that it is perfectly normal to just Let Go and enjoy the moment for the moment it is, not the moment someone else informs is what is meant to be ‘enjoyable’.

Their latest track – Let Go surfaced a few hours ago a five and almost half-minute of shimmering reverb that captures the mind taking the listener off on a relaxing journey of dreamy psychedelia.
