2018 has been a slow burn start for them with the first song of the year having only just appeared, though well worth the wait.

Cold Shoulder – with fortune will lead the way to a series of new songs as their music always makes the day seem brighter.

Prize The Wild – Alright With Me – Audio

The US electro-soul duo Prize The Wild released their eponymous LP on the 1st.

Prize The Wild

Prize The Wild

A seven track album of mellow flows which settles frayed nerves and although fairly smooth-groove far from fading in to the background, the music, which is tinctured with jazz influences, is able to keep the listener attuned to the eclectic collection of smartly constructed songs.

My pick of the release being the piano laden closer Alright With Me.

VRSTY – Neon – Video

The US indie-dance quartet VRSTY released the single Neon on the 27th of April.

VRSTY

Carefully negotiating the chasm between rock and pop VRSTY are able to navigate the sharp cliff-faces and reveal music which holds both interest to those who like shiny veneer and those who prefer gouged natural wood without disappearing in to a vortex of their own making.

It will be interesting to discover how things develop for the quartet over time as the tensions between the two very disparate: natural audiences; styles of music; presentation and, most importantly, natural affinity could all so easily snap in to fragments.

Bay Station – Baja Blues – Audio

The US americana outfit Bay Station released the LP Other Desert Cities on the 27th of April.

Bay Station

Bay Station

A ten track, roughly thirty five minutes, release (available on bandcamp) invites the listener to bring friends around and settle on a stoop with a cold beer to hand whilst passing the ebb and flow of the day in their company.

The compositions, which don’t try and do anything fancy, are evidently written and performed by musicians who know one end of an instrument from another as the tracks all have, appropriately, the ability to create the impression of dry dust seeping through the speakers and hence reference to the subject matter at hand.

The sixth track is Baja Blues.

A couple of songs from the album were revealed late last month (available on bandcamp) as the AA side single Cha Cha Boom / Let You Go, my pick of which is Cha Cha Boom with its laid-back hip sashaying rhythm.
