The alternative rock quartet St. Tropez from the Netherlands will be launching a new LP on the 1st of May from 18:00 to 20:00 (CEST) at what will be their pop-up studio in one of the units at Lil ‘Amsterdam – Amstelpassage – on the East side of Amsterdam Central Station.
Three songs have surfaced from the album with The Other and its fibrous tautology being my pick of those I am able to share.
The dancehall undecim Roots Rising from the Netherlands are finalising details of the release of the LP The Root Sessions.
Crisis, in a live recording, a commentary on the continuing damage of grinding the poor which is still continually justified by the 1% as necessary yet caused by the financial greed of that same 1% at the start of this decade which resulting in banks collapsing, is the second song to be to be revealed from the album.
Word arrives that the alt-rock septet Molino from the Netherlands are working towards the release of a new EP.

The track Forlorn, from the forthcoming release is of darker electronica than music of theirs which has featured previously with a throbbing bass pulse that shuffles the sub-woofer around the room as it bends the window glass – laying, as it does, against a forlorn vocal – affording the composition a menacing shadow that looms over the the threshold which is heralded by a stereophonic of heralding brass.
I very much look forward to the new EP – about which I am unable to tell you much at this stage, for which I apologise, though will expand upon in due course.
Hurling through the speakers, minding of an overhead drone filming commuters and relaying it double speed, the listener is delighted by the compression and expansion of gnarly composition, which to best enjoy does require moving any furnishing out of the way and turning volumes to more than they are accustomed.
A grunge influence seeps through the Going Out enabling Tusky to deliver a song which has the texturing of launching furious headbutts in to a sponge as the powerful roaring raucous rock is balanced by extended reverberating layering and thereby softening the spikiness of the knuckleduster encased fists which are the foundations of the song.
