Trauma Lips

A ten track album of dripping moss that minds the listener of a dank sea-cave festooned with the eerie shapes of stalactites and stalagmites as the vocal rotates through the compressed bass and drum kit with the elongated guitar adding to the sense of looming foreboding.

Empty Bottle is the opener.

Problems – Trauma Lips is available on iTunes.*

The first track to surface from the album – Fauve – indicates of an album that will cosset the listener in softly spaced silken layers of immersive synthetics rounded by a mesmerising vocal that holds the mind transfixed.

Beans on Toast – Magic – Video

It has been just over a year since the English protest-folk project of Jay McAllisterBeans On Toast – last featured. On the 1st the latest LP A Bird In The Hand was released.

As has proven to be the case with each of the previous nine albums, all of which have had a release date of the 1st of December, the tracks revolve around both personal experiences while cognisant of a wider world.

A Bird In The Hand (available on vinyl directly from the Beans On Toast website) is as much a celebration of the birth of a child as it is a reflection of the supporting structures outside the immediate family – with each of the ten tracks being both upbeat while simultaneously scathing of a society in which the silo has become the norm.

Although I am unable to share my pick of the release – Here At Homerton Hospital – the fourth track, the third track – Magic which I am, serves as fine introduction.

Slugging bass and drums launch through the speakers in the seventh of the dozen tracks – World Stand Still – with the listener anticipating a high energy heavy-metal number to burst through the room only for Puppy to slow the track to what the ears attune to be a 45 rpm record playing at 33 ⅓, though rather than feeling short changed the mind swiftly attunes and revels in the laid back heavy-rock rhythms.

colourmusic – Haunt Me – Video

If like me you were thinking of wagering that last bottom dollar that by the spelling ‘well colourmusic can’t be from the USA’, you too would be left with empty pockets as the gothic-electronica quartet of Colin FleishackerRyan HendrixNicholas Ley and Nick Turner are from Stillwater, Oklahoma (USA). On the 4th of February 2019 they will be releasing the LP Swimsuit.

The album (which is available for fans directly from the band) has been prefaced by the reveal of Haunt Me – a mystical track of ambient swashes of electronica as the backdrop to a slowly rotating composition through which peers a ghostly vocal – setting the scene for the complete LP which reflects of a state of calmness and eroticism derived from an imminent cataclysmic and final apocalypse.
