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.
The first song to arrive from the EP – Medicinal Love – which was released as a stand alone single, available on bandcamp, on the 13th finds milkd referencing back to the gently blended keys, vocal and guitar of their eponymous EP, though with a more wistful footstep as the sparse piano forms a pondering brow.
Following their journey the past approaching ten months has been a pleasure and I look forward to the, as yet, untitled EP.
The Scottish alt-rock quintet Acrylic released the EP All I Am on the 30th of March.
A four track EP (available on bandcamp) of mesmeric melancholic melodies as the guitars and vocal merge in to an introspective fragility with bass and percussion quietly forming the drifting framework that enables the band to create their immersive intricacies which hold the listener in tear-stained embrace.
My pick of the release being the penultimate track – Overrun.
