The fourteen track album (available on bandcamp) fizzes with an unbridled energy that covers the listener with a coat of bursting bubbles which launch them on to the dance-floor to pogo with the snarling snaps of the tracks.

あなたわたし抱いたあとよめのめし (You Are The One After Me – I Want Another) is the penultimate song.

Trauma Lips

A ten track album of dripping moss that minds the listener of a dank sea-cave festooned with the eerie shapes of stalactites and stalagmites as the vocal rotates through the compressed bass and drum kit with the elongated guitar adding to the sense of looming foreboding.

Empty Bottle is the opener.

Problems – Trauma Lips is available on iTunes.*

Beans on Toast – Magic – Video

It has been just over a year since the English protest-folk project of Jay McAllisterBeans On Toast – last featured. On the 1st the latest LP A Bird In The Hand was released.

As has proven to be the case with each of the previous nine albums, all of which have had a release date of the 1st of December, the tracks revolve around both personal experiences while cognisant of a wider world.

A Bird In The Hand (available on vinyl directly from the Beans On Toast website) is as much a celebration of the birth of a child as it is a reflection of the supporting structures outside the immediate family – with each of the ten tracks being both upbeat while simultaneously scathing of a society in which the silo has become the norm.

Although I am unable to share my pick of the release – Here At Homerton Hospital – the fourth track, the third track – Magic which I am, serves as fine introduction.
