A blur of infectious skater fused jumble tumbles out of the room filling the spaces with acrobatic flips and turns in an energetic ball of sound.

The four track EP is available on bandcamp, my pick of which is the closer Black Vans.

Psychocide – Confined – Audio

The Canada based alt-rock trio Psychocide are working on a new EP.

Psychocide

Psychocide

A mixed bag of back catalogue means that they are as yet undecided of the full set of tracks for the forthcoming EP – resultingly the latest track to surface, Confined, which was revealed less than twenty four hours ago –  may or may not make the cut.

Confined is a progressive-rock influenced song which is pierced by bubbles of indie-dance, making for an approaching four minutes thread of variegated texturing.

Paperwing – Firewall- Single Review

The Swedish sadcore project of Jenny SoovikPaperwing – released the single Firewall today.

Paperwing

Paperwing

The silken composition of fragile membrane slowly takes shape as combinations of electronica, instrumentation and vocal weave through each other forming ever more taught pockets of thought in a track that reflects on the building barriers of personal protection in the face of a world of ever greater factionalism resulting in isolated silos afeared of one another.

Yet, through the sadness lays a tentative glimmer of connection and a cohesion with a stretched out arm of reach inviting the listener to grasp the wrist and start to create extended bonds with one another.

The Gorgeous Oranges – Animals – Audio

The US synth-rock band The Gorgeous Oranges are set to release the LP Not Today Satan later this month.

The Gorgeous Oranges

The Gorgeous Oranges

The latest track to surface from the album – Animals , which was released as a stand alone single (available on bandcamp) on the 14th, –  slips quietly out of the speakers, only to encase the listener in a puddling blues-ballad that demands full attention.

The subtle hum of keyboard laying under the gnarly-blues guitar riffs gives the track its completely absorbing demeanour with the superlative vocal and supporting harmonised voices presses an unexpected melancholia to the composition as the bass and percussion maintain the progression of Animals and deliver its palpable intensity of presence.

Dom Clark Trio – Old Soldiers – Single Review

The alt-rock band Dom Clark Trio from England released a new track on the 17th.

Dom Clark Trio

Dom Clark Trio

Just over a year in to existence the trio, quite rightly, are still setting out their stall and defining their sound with the music revealed thus far being of varied texture though always of jazzy-interface with trumpet fusing in to the songs.

This necessarily means there is an element of pick and mix about the material, some flavours not being to taste others being sumptuous repast – with Old Soldiers and its off-beat trotting around the ears being of some considerable delight and well worth adding to the playlist of ‘music to nullify a frown’.

I look forward to hearing more by Dom Clark Trio in due course.
