After a six year break since the release of the LP Marla’s Song the ethereal-wave duo Loo & Monetti, from Marseille (France), are set to release the LP Broken Inside on the 1st of February 2019.
Loo & Monetti
The first track to surface from the album is No More, which was released as a standalone single on the 12th.
A song that melts into the listener with its creamy texturing of keys, cinematographic electronica and evocative vocal as the duo deliver a completely absorbing sultry melody that attests to an LP to immediately add to the collection on its release.

Their latest EP Hypercentre , released last week, takes them in to slightly different waters with the compositions being less secluded, which allows the voices to take greater spotlight and hence less sultry in countenance.
The first of the four tracks on the EP – Allegra – showcases the lighter texturing, which conversely, has a deeper resonance of beat and a tempo in to which the pulse of the audience syncopates.
Loose Ends, an indie quintet from Melbourne (Australia) comprising Jackson Trudel (Drums), Ben Smalley (Vocals), Ben Schmidt (Guitar), Jack Smith (Bass) and Mitch Parry (Guitar) will be releasing the LP Overthinking Everything I Know on the 30th of November.
Although it was back in 2015 since last being featured, there have been no releases missed, gaps of two to three years in new material appearing being a feature of the band which goes back to the start of the decade.
I Still Get The Calls, the title and first of the two tracks on the single, (available via Beluga Records) discovers St. Jimi Sebastian Cricket Club in an upbeat rock’n’roll mood in a track that brings in to play a retrospective air surrounded by dance-inducing tempo that finds the audience joining in arms with smile wreathed faces induced by the infectious hooks and melodies.
The Swedish heavy-metal quartet Corroded are set to release the LP Bitter on the 25th of January 2019.
Cross, the third of the dozen tracks on Bitter, is the first song to surface from the album and once again evidences why they have remained stalwarts of the rock scene for as long as they have and signals that their fifth album will be another to add to the collection as soon as available.
