JEPH is a relatively new indie-gaze quartet from England.
I have been able to listen to a handful of songs, the most recent of which Hey Baby surfaced on Friday.
JEPH create music of a summery-vibe with a vaguely trippy feel while underpinned by a dexterity of hand as the quartet are able to pull from three different voices and two six string guitars to create an amalgam of sound and while each song has a similarity of flavour they are all in their own way very different, making for an outfit I look forward to hearing more from in short order.
The Danish electrowave duo Yasmin will be releasing the EP SALAM on the 13th of July.
The second song to surface from the EP, which was itself released as a standalone single that is available on bandcamp on the 15th, Still – showcases their immersive soundtracks.
Combinations of synthesised natural percussion and voices along with electronica creates music that fuses with the synapses of the listener resulting in them, the audience, becoming not a casual observer rather an intrinsic element of the compositions.
The English synthwave duo LiiN released the LP Users on the 15th.
Their merge of analogue synths and instrumentation makes for music which has a fuzzy hum that glows like a valve, emitting a palpable warmth, while also the sharp elbows of glitchy hissing dig in to the ribs giving the songs their variance of texturing.
The bakers dozen, roughly fifty minutes, track LP (available on bandcamp) can be enjoyed, equally, as a one stop night in with a few friends or each track individually popped like bubble wrap.
By way of a reminder of their sound, the appropriately named six and a quarter minutes closer – Cassiopeia.
Rosser is a relatively new US electro-rock quintet.
The first track to surface Tiny Hot Spot is a vintage-rock feast that strides through the room in a cloak of bluesy riffs, off-beat percussion and lancing bass all adorned by a glitterball of synth with a vocal straddling the reference point, while extending a hand to the audience to join them on the floor to party away the night.
I look forward to hearing more from an outfit who have, in Tiny Hot Spot, demonstrated the ability to generate good time rock’n’roll that has the gumption to leave oily footprints in its wake that linger longer in the mind.
The English darkwave band darktrain revealed their latest track within the past twenty four hours.
An outfit who don’t feature often simply because they rarely reveal new material, though whenever they have until today they have been a duo. Towards the end of last month Rachel Garrett joined them as the drummer and dreaming of only you , currently a demo, is their first reveal as a trio.
With some fortune the addition of a third player to the line-up may afford compositions to surface more frequently.
