Hemmit – Friends – Audio

The US electro-rock project Hemmit released the LP One Ultra yesterday.



Better known as the duo of Adam Rohosy and Keith Fleming on this occasion the album (available on bandcamp) is the solo work of Keith (the erstwhile drummer), not that you would know it on hitting play as the multilayered tracks of instrumentation, drum, electronica and vocal spin through the ears finding the listener strutting through the room striking chords on their own air guitar.

My pick of the release being the opener – Friends.

Jerry Quickley – Passenger – Audio

The US performance poet Jerry Quickley released the LP (american) FOOL on the 16th.

Always hard-hitting in commentary, with particular insight of war-zones and the effect on the local population having been a news-reporter out in Iraq in 2003 which led him on the road of delivering the message of the reality of the brutality of conflict through the medium of music.

(american) FOOL (available on bandcamp) features the beats and production by the US rapper Busdriver to deliver a ten track LP of acerbic commentary of a home country tearing itself apart set to a glitchy soundtrack, which gives the roughly thirty four minutes release a dystopian temperament.

Passenger is the 5th track.

The first track to surface from the album, #4, was revealed last week. A winding cohesion of a soaring and swooping guitar blended around the vocal in a song tipped with latin dance and southern blues which finds the body accompanying the rhythm.

There is only one song – the début single Habitat which came out last week.

The slow tempo and low fidelity hum adds to the sense of wistful isolation that quietly fills the room with a building layering of vocal, guitar, loop and synth that the listener can feel soaking in to their core.

The latest release, the four track EP – Chilroy (available on bandcamp) – which came out last week, is a welcome follow up to the 2016 two track single Cholo Choir and finds Chilhowee Royal in even more fuzzy node in a roughly thirteen minutes release of low fidelity garage blues which sounds as though it is emanating from beneath the foundations, no matter where you position the speakers or how you equalise or change the volume.

My pick of Chilroy being the opener No Skin with its bass strings which visibly pulse like a beating heart perceived through the chest.
