The Parrots – My Love Is Real – Single Review

The Parrots is a garage rock outfit from Spain.

The Parrots

Their music has a sublimating delayed echo which gives the compositions a luxurious depth that minds of walking barefoot over a thick pile soft carpet, giving the songs a dreamy allure in which the listener becomes fully immersed.

In the newest single – My Love Is Real -, which came out earlier in the month, the relaxing ebb and flow of the guitar washes around the listener while the subdued manner of vocal, bass and barely ripple, yet, despite the gentle frame of the track the multifarious layers afford the song a compelling and hypnotic presence.

A track best enjoyed with a beer in a crowded bar, as the quartet deliver their good time rock’n’roll, which brightens the day by its very presence.

The bright guitars sparkle through the song, like a sequined dress, as the high pitches flicker through the ears, while the drum, which plays on tautly strung skins adds to the sharpness of the architecture which in turn affords space and time for the laid-back bass and sliding vocal to create the infectious dynamism of Growing.

Francine Belle – Beautiful Heights – Single Review

The England based RnB creator Francine Bell released the single Beautiful Heights on the 15th.

A song inspired whilst asleep, there is also something of a dreamscape to the luscious ballad as it spreads through the room in waves of pulsing electronic percussion and through the quiet hazy layers of the composition launches the expressive and expansive vocal that glistens in the light like a sparkling diamond.

The well controlled and defined voice, whilst undoubtedly that of an experienced and skilful singer is also able to capture the emotion of Beautiful Heights and although the spotlight of the track, retains a sense of the tender fragility of the song which affords the piece a connection with the listener rather than merely a performance for the audience – a difficult balance within the remit of the style of the music.

Swimming Tapes – Easy Strand – Single Review

On the 17th the single Easy Strand was released by the England based dream-rock quintet Swimming Tapes.

Swimming Tapes - Easy Strand

Swimming Tapes

The quintet have been quietly making progress in the background with word arriving that an LP is in the offing and there will be a short, five date, England and Scotland tour in November.

In the interim the new single, Easy Strand, which appears almost exactly a year after the  EP Soft Sea Blue, other than the acoustic version of their  2016 single Tides which came out in February, makes this the first release for them this year.

Perhaps it is something more than a coincidence that their wistfully dreamy shimmery summer vibe releases often appear this time of year, the original of Tides was also in September.

Lay back, kick up the heels and allow the washes of the gazey guitars curtain off the hassles of daily life.

Moogle – Silver Lines – Single Review

The Irish slacker project Moogle revealed the track Silver Lines on the 11th.

Stretching the elasticity of bars to almost breaking point the song rumbles through the room on a warped turntable that gives Silver Lines the feeling of time slowing and catching up with itself, as though running on two different speeds, in a fine rendition of slacker rock.

I was late to catch the note introducing the début track, which came out in June – All My Friends – which has been surpassed with Silver Lines, though both indicative that Moogle is a project to keep an ear out for in the future with fingers crossed that an LP will be on its way in short order as the slowly rotating compositions would be best enjoyed in an extended session. In the interim, if anywhere near, you may well come across Moogle busking in Dublin.
