Earlier on this month Brenda Xu released the LP Overflow, which is available on bandcamp.
An ethereal, roughly twenty eight minutes, seven track album, that holds the listener in rapt attention from opening to close as the hushed sounds drift effortlessly through the room filling it with layers that the listener, unwittingly, reaches out to touch to gain greater sense of the emotional texturing.
My selection is the ante-penultimate – Real Sick Man.
The English psychedelic-tint duo TEN FÉ have firmed up on the release date of the LP Hit The Light which is due on the 3rd of February 2017 since their introduction earlier this year.
Revealed in the past half a dozen hours the opener Overflow intimates of an outfit who are adept at subtle brush strokes which in combination make for immersive context.
The heading towards four minutes track is one that you wish were extended to further reaches of nebulae auditory refraction as the spectrometer of colours dance across the room, each element holding the attention, making this a track that could do with a 12″ vinyl extended run through to allow the listener to capture the soundscape in more detail – the best I am able to proffer – is put this on repeat loop and then once again to get the full flavour of a sublime piece of music.
The US psychedelic project Must Be The Holy Ghost releases the LP Overflow on the 16th of September.

Combining looping electronica and drum machine with guitar and voice enables Jared Draughon to create trippy clouds of music that warp the listeners sense of perception as the tie-dyed washes of sound flow around the brain.
The opening track of the six on the album (available via Cardigan Records) – Melt Down is an intoxicating wave of fuzziness.
