Basement Revolver somehow seem like a trio who must have been in the collection for many a year as there is something comfortingly familiar in their music, which is not due in any part to ‘sounds like’ rather their music having a confidence and calmness which, like heading out to a favoured bar, nestles itself within the brain with an immediate sense of pleasurable anticipation.

Given that there is only a brief catalogue of music, only dating back just over a couple of years, Basement Revolver already mark themselves out as a band who rate a long reach and legacy and I look forward to hearing more. The first song to surface from the dozen track album is the opener – Baby.

An approximately forty one minutes, ten track, album of luxuriant melancholia which tenderly brushes through the tensor tympani leaving the listener enveloped in a satiating glow of mellow, haunting melodies.

The first track to be revealed from the LP, which is the seventh, is Tangering Tree.

A couple of tracks have surfaced of the ten on the album (which is available on bandcamp) the most recent being the seventh and title Light.

The fragile sparse opening reveal of Light held by keys and vocal draws in the listener as the emotionally expressive voice captures every nuance in a feathered delivery and it is the very nature of the desolate isolation which affords the song its hypnotic beauty – merely ensure you have a handkerchief near to hand to wipe away the tears.

Catholic Guilʇ – Lucky Country – Audio

The Australian sadcore duo Catholic Guilʇ released the EP Hymnbook Volume 1 on the 6th.

Catholic Guilʇ

A five track release (available on bandcamp) of quizzical outlook of the world around laid to an acoustic-emo soundtrack.

The roughly twenty one minutes release keeps the listener attuned, like an attentive puppy cocking their head from side to side,  to the disparate songs which are one moment steeped in dry humour, the next heft a dour countenance in to earshot.

My selection from Hymnbook Volume 1 being the closer Lucky Country – which is their most explicit protestation of the politics of a nation of geo-politics and ‘get orf my land’ mentality – which, sadly, can be applied to far too many citizens of many of the self-entitled ‘developed countries’ around the world.
