The Welsh indie-rock band Local Enemy were introduced last year.
Local Enemy – Something For The Weekend Sir? – CD
From the LP – Something For The Weekend Sir? – the third of the six tracks is a song that bustles out of the speakers grabbing hold of everything in its path and zipping around the room in a double-time drum, while the guitars squeeze themselves into line and the bass keeps everything on trajectory from which vocal maintains the pace of the composition.
There is a sense that Local Enemy has long legs in the music industry with their honest and straightforward out-put and I look forward to hearing more of their music in the years to come.
Something For The Weekend Sir? [Explicit] is available on Amazon.*

The English alt-rock quartet Avalanche Party released the EP – The Avalanche Party EP on the 1st.
Opening the sixteen minute, five track release is the briefest song – Obstacle, which is also my pick of the release, with its furious scavenging hunt around the room in tempestuous scowling. I get the sense that Syncrude Tailings Dam Mildred MLSB would be struggling to hold this piece of music behind the concrete.
Next is Revolution, which more dedicated readers will recognise from a post in May on the sister site Indie Music Videos.
The halfway stage is Mountains, which portrays Avalanche Party in a completely different mood as the voice is pushed to forefront in their most melodic piece thus far. Well worth a listen as it demonstrates the genuine musicianship that allows Avalanche Party to so easily launch fusillades of soundwaves, which form coherent constructs and a testament to their collective abilities.
The penultimate track – Let’s Get Together is another storm-trooper of wall of sound as the familiar territory is regained and sits as an oblique angle to the previous number.
Closing out The Avalanche Party EP is the song that was used to introduce the band back in April – Money.
The Avalanche Party EP is available on bandcamp.
A superb first EP and I am already salivating over the first LP. I will let you know of more news, as it becomes available, about a band with the potential to travel far, if they decide they wish to dig a route to victory in this shallow trench of the world of music.
