The Corrupting Sea

As part of the five in five series though Silber Media, demanding of musicians to encompass five different ideas within a five minute time frame you would be correct to assume the challenge is an ongoing endeavour.

The Corrupting Sea picked up the gauntlet and in Looking To The Stars (available on bandcamp) has been able to encapsulate from a rocket launch to encircling a distant galaxy within the parameters.

The middle track is fifty nine seconds of  Keeping Time In Hibernation.

M Is We – Tired – Audio

The US gothic-sludge project M Is We released the EP Feels Like Five Days on the 14th.

M Is We - Tired

M Is We

Without going in to too much of a loop – longer readers of the website will know how regularly releases on Silber Media appear, those who aren’t – they do. A series of EPs going back over many years and continue to be recorded which are released by Silber under the collection 5in5 which are challenges to bands who often release tracks with time-capsules extending towards the duration of the phases of the moon to come up with five songs lasting five minutes in an EP release.

M Is We, who were introduced last year with a song that stretched towards the complete running time of the whole of this release – took part in the series with the release of Feels Like Five Days (available on bandcamp) and the second track is Tired.

From Myrtle Beach in the USA the instrumental-psychedelic-gaze creator Trey McManus who performs under the name Treyverb.

Glittering guitars subsume themselves inside folds of reverberation giving the listener the sense they are bobbing inside the ripples sent out by a pebble dropped into a mill-pond and listening to the quiet disturbance. Treybveb couches the instrumentation inside reflections of itself giving the sounds a multi-dimensional perspective in which the audience is invited to oscillate like a free-radical element and each play through of the music conjurers up new kaleidoscopes of sound.

The palettes are of primary colours, yet Treyverb is able to take the mind on a journey of multitudinousness pastel shades as the interweaving melodies circulate inside themselves, leaving the mind transfixed by the hues.

An experienced musician Trey is able to translate that knowledge to tapestries which enunciate of the settling of inner turmoil which, despite the sparsity of complexity, are able to inflect of emotional turbulence.

Treyverb has the ability to transfer auditory minimalism to create a sound which is a tour de force of projectionist sublimation as the mind wraps itself into a Gordinian Knot of self-exploration.

Released this month was the four track – twenty six and a just over a third minutes EP A Year Without Words, which is available through Silber Media on Bandcamp.

The Manchester, England, alt-rock band The Falling comprise John Done (Guitar / Vocals), Brian Mitchell (Guitar / Vocals), Andy Keating (Bass) and Jason Hanley (Drums).

The Falling - alt-rock from England

The Falling

Those of longer stay may be wondering if Silber Media and Brian Mitchell have relocated to England, that isn’t the case, however the same name does find yet more great music. I will get my frustration out of the way, as you readily know patience and I am not great bedfellows and although I have had the pleasure of taking a listen to their catalogue dating back to 2014 – every one of the half-dozen tracks is only available as a single and The Falling is a band you just want to hit play once and enjoy, not keep reaching for the ‘play’ button to get to the next track.

The Falling predominately deliver high energy compact commentaries of societal malaise. Whilst the quartet are also able to play with tenderness, including the acoustic resonance on These Hands, there is always an underlying sense of the impetuous which they manage to deliver as coherent thoughts that resonate with musical prowess, not through hoiking up the volume, rather enabling bass and percussion to compress the texture, whilst guitars are deployed to create the melody and upper-cut from which an impressive voice commentates on their societal angst. The vocal is not a frenetic disembowelling, rather an impassioned plea for cohesive compassion.

It is the ability of The Falling to deliver a raging froth of distilled commentary on the world around whilst holding inquisitive guitar soliloquies that are fenced by the pressure lock of the lower registers that makes them a band I look forward to hearing more of in short order.

My one wish is they put out an LP to contemplate their material, however, my wish is not their command and the latest single Cream (Get On Top) which was released on the 4th is, as with all their releases, available on bandcamp.

Given all that I have written of their material having perspicacity towards societal angst-wave Cream (Get On Top) is a departure as it heads towards a more introspective commentary of thoughts of relationship isolationism and is perhaps the nearest they will ever come to a ‘love song’, albeit a fractured relationship.

Small Life Form – It Is Not Safe But It Is Warm – Single Review

The US experimental-drone project Small Life Form released the single It Is Not Safe But It Is Warm on the 11th.

If you have been a regular reader over the years you will have noticed various entries through Silber Records and Small Life Form is another of those entries. As with RemoraSmall Life Form is one of Brian Mitchell the owner of Silber Medias’ personal musical projects.

Running for over twelve and a half minutes It Is Not Safe But It Is Warm is a track to turn out the lights, close the eyes and languish within. One is minded of watching a rusty spot rotting away the steel surrounding as the buzzing of a thousand wasps drills into the ears. The fusion of exposed wires invites the listener to create their own capricious sound effects through volume, bass and treble. If you have access to delay and echo through your sound system, play with those functions too.

It Is Not Safe But It Is Warm is perhaps the antithesis of the rising popularity of using mobile phones and MP3s to listen to music through reedy delivery, no matter which accompanying speakers are attached and I recommend purchasing the FLAC version from the bandcamp download where the clarity of delivery allows you optimal experience.
