The England based world-beat collective The Turbans release their eponymous début LP on the 6th of April.
A collective drawn from wide geo-political spaces, The Turbans have spent many years touring around the world bringing their vision of inclusive nature of music to a global fan-base and the eleven track album (available on bandcamp) is a drawing together of those ideas from the past seven years.
Wrapped in the vaudeville texturing lays a light-hearted commentary on the quirks in life without it bringing down the mood as This Way To The Egress combine music that has the audience dancing in joyful footstep with good-natured querying.
From the forthcoming album the first track to surface is See No Evil.
Appropriately – I find myself with a brand new song published today by a global collective of world-beat musicians who produce music across the internet – Solve4X with And I Love You.
After a year of topsy- turvy for many – just when you thought no-one else would be releasing new music before midnight UTC on the 31st of December – a song holding hands to all around the globe – the undectet have chosen to reveal And I Love You (the video is – at the time of publishing – incorrectly titled).
Lifecycle from London in England is the world-beat trio of Geoffrey Dent (Guitar / Vocals) Letitia Austin (Bass) and Nick Holder (Drums).
Melting influences spanning continents and decades the alchemists of Lifecycle return with golden treasure that liquefies the body into a rhythmic dance. Bass loops into the soul whilst the percussion plays the conductor to which guitar gently teases as the vocal, that is subsumed and partially distorted, adds a hallmark to the ingot and were that not enough the pieces are polished by the gentle cloth of electronics which imperceptibly add a lustre to the whole out-put.
Experienced musicians, who have drifted in and out of each others company for a long-while they have an eight track LP – Lino Cosmos set to appear on the 27th October. Versed in live-performance, they have been able to transpose the anxieties and fragilities of the stage to studio production making for an album you will not only want to get hold of, but one to pull out every-time you have a late evening party.
Infusing progressive rock and psychedelia with early hip-hop and thoughts from across the globe Lifecycle is able to deliver music that has the ability to hold attention in a hubbub of multifarious conversations and find conglomerations involuntary swaying their body with the infectious beats.
