The listener finds themselves ensconced in reminders of Deep Purple on hitting play as the unfettered kaleidoscope of refracting crystallised light shimmers through the room leaving the mind failing to catch up with its own thought process as the synapses splutter and slow down to a revolving eye of absorbing inner consciousness.

My only thoughts before hitting play are – allow yourself time and plenty of it. Thus far it has taken me since the introduction on the 13th of April to get this far with you – to suggest the second of the four tracks on Nothing Ever Happened (available on bandcamp) – Ocular Riptide – is my pick of the release.

Most recently to surface is the song Daisy Town, a just over four and a half minutes long track, that slowly unfurls its way in to the room wrapping the listener in a kaleidoscopic array of colours that refracts hues of purple and blue in hazy flows of guitar from which there is only a desire to find some comfortable pillows on which to lay the head and allow the mood to slow down the pulse and drift dreamily in the becalming sounds.

Whilst much is tentative about the full details one thing that is assured is that Water Slide will be on the as yet unnamed EP.

A just under four and a quarter minutes of dreamy synth and guitar combinations which even through the speakers trace a sweet smelling smokiness that slows down the synapses to a more gentle pacing. The delayed echo on vocal is deftly framed by the punctuation marks daubed by precise drums, giving Water Slide a definition by which the whole composition is able to flower, like petals gently unfurling in Spring sunlight, elegantly and gracefully, yet, with purpose.

Enamel Animal – The Thousand Years – Audio

Enamel Animal is a psychedelic quartet from England.

Before hitting play, clear out your diary for the next twenty four hours as you will still be tripping long after you have turned off the music.

Hallucinogenic waves of sound wrap themselves around the listener which are themselves encased within a grungy droning top-coat affording the compositions their longevity of blurriness by the listener.

Earlier in the month Enamel Animal revealed their début LP Unfaith, which is available on bandcamp. Although the eleven track album lasts only just over fifty one minutes and lyrically is a reflective of a society imploding upon itself such is the weave of Gordian knot in which the mind folds itself – the brain remains pleasurably befuddled long thereafter.

The Thousand Years is the seventh offering.

The High Ones

The High Ones is Mark Lee and Nigel Parrington a psychedelic indie pop duo from St. Albans in England.

The High Ones

Mark will be a familiar name to established readers as part of The Pocket Gods, a perennial favourite on the Indie Bands Blog. On this occasion, whilst the material remains as lo-fi as to be expected it is somehow more accessible and whilst the distinctive laconic vocal of Mark Lee remains as recognizable as ever, the audience is offered a more dance orientated sound.

There is a distinctive funk undertow which snaps the hips into movement with a plethora of alternative new wave synths which flow through the tracks giving them a sinuous movement.

Whilst The Pocket Gods remain very active, The High Ones have more sporadic out-put, more akin to the cycle of Halley’s Comet, but welcome none the less for it when they do arrive and knowing that Lee has an almost obsessive interest in all things celestial and beyond, perhaps that shouldn’t be too much of a surprise.

This is music to take at any-time of the day when you fancy exploring something a little different, but nonetheless easy to engage with.
