The alt-folk musician Dante Hadden, from Vancouver (Canada), will be releasing the EP Most Nights on the 21st of December.
A five track EP of variegated dappled tracks that mind the listener of walking through a silver-birch copse in late autumn with the rays of the sun filtered through the sparse foliage and the scent of damp leaves underfoot as the roughly eighteen evocative minutes of the release percolate through mind, sometimes led by guitar other times by a melancholic pianoforte, yet always focused on the distinctive vocal.
The first song to surface from the EP – the title track and opening song Most Nights was itself released as a stand alone single on the 23rd.
A couple of tracks have surfaced from the album, which preface of a ten song release (available on bandcamp) that has a brooding power which looms out of the speakers casting a dominating presence through the room.
Marie Davidson is also known as one half of both the duo line-ups of Essaie Pas and DKMD with solo releases being less frequent – Working Class Woman being the follow up to the dystopia of the 2014 album Perte d’identité.
On the 12th of October the Canadian ambient idm project Lunar Lemur will release the LP You Can Tell Because The Quantum Cat Version Has An Origami Face.
Lunar Lemur – You Can Tell Because The Quantum Cat Version Has An Origami Face – artwork
Bringing a different and more refined set of tools from music previously featured, in You Can Tell Because The Quantum Cat Version Has An Origami Face (a fifteen track album available on bandcamp) the compositions are intricately woven textures that wrap the listener in a mélange of almost organic shifting shapes and lifts them on a journey of imaginative experimental phantasmagoria.
The oriental tradition inspired Burst The Chrysanthemum is the fourth piece.
The Canadian sadcore project Twilight Fields recently surfaced with a new track.
A musical project which first featured in 2016, Twilight Fields has always created music of melancholic countenance whilst empathetic of others.
The new track – Song Delivered – continues that narrative with a composition that finds succour with the many musicians around the globe, who although pouring heart and soul in to their songs are unable to find any traction or interest by others, yet despite that, still have the urgent need to to keep on creating even in the knowledge that it may well be music that only they will ever hear.
Perhaps an anthem for this site, which does try to offer some kind of bridge to many in that position whilst eschewing that which is major label.
