I have noticed over the years that US southern country holds an influence over more than a smattering of the Scottish bands and musicians featured along with others who send over their music for consideration – an intriguing conundrum.
Nonetheless often extremely capably delivered and Sinny adds to that list with latest two track single Running Away, which was released last week, my pick of which is the B side Look Who’s Crying Now.
The Scottish glitch-wave outfit Park Planet surfaced with a new track yesterday.
Prior to listening to The Ba Bang, do make sure the windows and doors are opened, not to cause maximum disturbance to others rather the reverse, as, regardless of the volume, like a shaken bottle of fizz, on uncorking the track a wave of pressure bursts out of the speakers that otherwise would break door hinges and window glass.
Always, on receipt of a note by Park Planet that there is a new song about, I never quite know what I will be invited to hear, though I do know it will always be an aural feast of unbridled proportions and The Ba Rang, with its ebbing and froing wooshes of synthesis, which has an industrial dystopia to the soundtrack, is a further example.
The Scottish celtic-rock band Coast were first introduced in 2013 and it is good to catch up with their journey from time to time…
Coast – No More Heroes
…Having built up a strong European following over the years it is not a great surprise that they were recently captured in live performance in Denmark with the track No More Heroes from their most recent LP Windmills In The Sky.
The Scottish sadcore project Point Cove releases the EP They Don’t Make Them Like They Used To on the 28th.
Cello, Piano and drum-stems are fed through an FL Studio sequencer creating the warm analogue frequencies which slowly uncurl around the listener while the specific instruments selected to create the music affords the songs their alluring melancholic air, with the spoken word lyric being added on top of the sequenced elements create a contrasting sharpness to the pieces.
My pick of the four songs on They Don’t Make Them Like They Used To (which is available on bandcamp) being the closer Hear My Voice.
