The indie-dance quartet, from The Netherlands, Jason Waterfalls – released the single Oceans on the 27th of September.
Whilst Oceans is predominately a lightly textured composition Jason Waterfalls are able to fray the hemlines with inflections of scrawling rock allowing the song to hold the interest, of those of us who like their music to be a more scuffed DMs than polished slip-ons, alongside those after a more user-friendly experience.
HERR ALT – an electrowave project from the Netherlands released the début single Rush yesterday.
Combining electronic loops, guitar and bleeding vocal allows HER ALT to deliver music which is simultaneously nu-disco whilst equally retrospective of ’80s synth-rock.
More typically to be found in stage performance where the visual and electronic loops modulated by stage played guitar allow the material a more extemporised and organic feel, Rush, nonetheless, (available on bandcamp) makes a welcome introduction for those of us not able to get to see live performance.
Their latest track to surface – Gangly Limbs – by title alone explains with some clarity the conceptual ideas of Molino.
Swathed in free-form jazz and maths rock influences the collection of five wind instruments, both brass and reed, accompanied by drums, synths, odds & ends and voice gives the septet a distinctive sound that akin to Marmite will have you either recoiling or dipping in for another slice of buttered toast and yeast extract, the fact I am suggesting you spend part of your day listening to them, indicates that not only do I like Marmite, I also like the music.
Word arrives of a new LP in the wings and from the forthcoming album – Everything – contains the familiarity of the fresh-faced US influenced indie sound which drew my attention to The 101’s back in 2014.
