The first song to surface from the EP, which was itself released as a standalone single yesterday, Freewheeler transmutes like honey flowing from a spoon as the echoing reverberations of synthesised guitar reform inside one another with chords slowly fading as others continually build whilst the evocative vocal breathes warmly over the ears, creating a song with an alluring enigmatic beauty which foretells of an EP to keep an eye out for on release.

Princess Chelsea – I Love My Boyfriend – Audio

Back in 2015 the New Zealand dreamwave project Princess Chelsea last featured. On the 7th of September the LP The Loneliest Girl will be released.

With a greater emphasis on instrumentation than previous features the first track to surface from the album, I Love My Boyfriend, which was released on the 22nd as a standalone single and is available on bandcamp, opens with a bulging bass-line (how could I not be enamoured?) prior to dissolving in to a dreamlike composition that unfurls as though in slow motion, in to which the mind becomes entranced by the hazy soft brushes of the song.

The almost three year gap in last being featured coincides with the release of the LP The Great Cybernetic Depression rather than purely my own incompetence.

A musician who always creates songs of creamy synthesised intrigue hence why a stalwart of the site since introduction in 2014 and on the basis of the songs I have heard from Sleepwalking (available on bandcamp) the full release seems set to be one to add to the collection with some urgency.

The most recent track to surface, the second of the eleven on the album is Boombox Serenade.

There’s too much – 生四 Farisa (the girl with the golden voice) – Audio

The Japanese based New Zealand ambient drone project There’s too much revealed the latest song 生四 Farisa (the girl with the golden voice) on the 4th.

There`s too much - 生四 Farisa (the girl with the golden voice)

There`s too much

Unlike previous material featured by There’s Too Much since introduction in 2013, 生四 Farisa (the girl with the golden voice), doesn’t fill the room with an oppressive dystopian darkness – though do bear in mind drone is never chirpy, it does however fill the room with a carrier signal which burrows deep in to the mind, extending for a margin under six and five sixths minutes.

Anecdata – Antifaxxers – Audio

Anecdata is a synthrock project from New Zealand.

Anecdata

Back in July I was sent an introduction and only now have I reached that email, though with fortune the LP You Do Not Do which was released this month (available on bandcamp), means I am almost current, though sadly once again I am once again a few days late to getting round to getting a feature written, my apologies to one and all.

A glorious revolution of synthesis drifts through the room to the accompaniment of sharply turned bass loops, extended guitar and electro-vocals resulting the listener is immediately minded of Sparks, as the audience articulates limbs akin to a retro velvet beaked nodding duck water-feature gizmo.

If, like me, you are in the Northern Hemisphere you can safely turn off the heating before hitting play as the warmth, from my pick of the release – the third of the eleven tracks on the album – Antifaxxers – permeates the room with the raising ambient warming temperature being palpably discernible.
