The retrospective brit-blues tinted rock’n’roll of Unamused stretches through the room borne of a summery breeze that warms up the room with the echoing soundtrack that relaxes the audience and makes the world seem a better place for its existence.
The US alt-rock trio The Good Neighbors release the three track single Not Feelin’ This on the 1st of September.
The Good Neighbors
The Good Neighbours deliver music which has a wide sonic range. Guitars and percussion range from flurries of hard-hitting punches to gently placed dabs, whilst the extended vocal sits as an engaging contrast to the music.
By way of an introduction to a trio I look forward to coming back to in short order the opening track on the single (which is available on bandcamp) – Times Moves Slow.
A spread of voices and instrumentation is not used to create volume rather multi-layered compositions which, like waves on the sea, have a discernible direction of travel which is suddenly broken by unseen currents allowing The Broadest Blue to leave the listener never be quite sure where the next bar will head, though equally not make the ideas so complex there are jagged edges of confusion.
From the most recent LP Kennedy (which is available on bandcamp) the seventh of the ten tracks – Smoke.
On the 11th the US funk-rock outfit released the single Honeycomb.
I realise there is a mystery to my genre-definitions – though there is some semblance of sense to them – ‘funk something’ indicating that the music starts by snaking the lower spine and hips whilst ‘funkadelic something’ intimates of immediate bending in the ankles and knee – both with shoulders involved. All genre descriptors are based on which part of the physical body or mind is first fired and what next as the music emerges through the speakers – bear with me…
…Honeycomb (available on bandcamp) immediately has the listener – in order – grinding their lower spine and hips with the rhythm riding up the vertebrae to discover shoulders swaying in free-flow prior to all joints hanging out with the dance moves ‘funk-rock’ – hit play – and you will then understand more of how this site is configured.
