The US nowave duo Body/Head will be releasing the EP The Switch on the 13th of July.
The first compositions to surface of the five on the EP (which is available on bandcamp) You Don’t Need, the second track on the release, is a dystopian layering of the gnawing buzz of stretched guitar, warping electronica and reclusive vocal.
The New Zealand nowave creator Jonathan Bree releases the LP Sleepwalking on the 8th of June.

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.
The English sultry-goth project Bleek Noir was introduced earlier in the year.

The latest track to surface (available on bandcamp) – Last Night I Saw Myself With The Animals (And The Animals Ate Themselves) is of even gloomier disposition than music previously featured as the nowave dystopian soundtrack is marked by the panic inducing vocal and careening instrumental / percussion backdrop.
Perhaps not a song to play just before going to bed, although there is a alluring beauty to the combinations which stays with the listener and the song again highlights the intense emotional draw of the voice.

Immediately cloaking the room in an oppressive darkness, the latest track to surface, which is from the forthcoming LP Dissipated, Life Alert, is just over two and a sixth minutes of imploding electronica and meandering vocal giving the song a brooding sense of dystopia, which paradoxically, has an alluring beauty due entirely to its menacing shadow.
Regularly putting out new material, for those of us who enjoy their music to be a little harrowing, Snuff American Style is a musical project to get to know and spend time with in a moss dripping cellar whilst listening to the back catalogue.
With only a couple of tracks that I have been able to hear, I can only hope that Adolescentes Sin Edad create far more music in short order for a broader audience, as they have much to add to the weave of the tapestry of music creators.
The flat intonations give the material a beguiling come hither temptation discovering the listener drawing ever closer to the speakers as the hushed delivery whispers in to the ears with anticipatory tingles of temptation that run up and down the spine.
