The Sunday Session

The sun has gone in and it’s p*ssing it down in London Town. Time to get stuck into more tunes resting on top of my digital back pile. Fowl Science hail from Toronto and, judging by the lack of anything else listed, The Flowering Eye is their debut release. The song is a catchy mix of shoegaze, alt-rock and post-punk. The synths give the song an emotive feel as does the repeated chorus of “they’re calling; they’re calling”. The Shop Window follow up their excellent previous single Mannequin Lies with new single Reflection. To be honest it does not grab … Continue reading The Sunday Session

The Black Heart Death Cult – Sonic Dhoom

Sonic Dhoom is the first new material we have heard from Melbourne’s The Black Heart Death Cult since their debut album early last year. It’s fine piece of Asian inspired psychedelic done featuring some wonderful sitar work. I am pretty sure it’s a nod to Pete Kember.

Sonic Dhoom is available digitally from the band. There will be a 7″ single appearing on Salty Dog Records soon. Facebook Continue reading The Black Heart Death Cult – Sonic Dhoom

VIM – Waiting EP

I have been Waiting er looking forward to this EP since the title track dropped last December. The first four tracks here are excellent examples of shimmering and ethereal dream pop. The songs swirl like no tomorrow and closing ones eyes they present hazy, shady and mottled imagery. The female vocals are softened, calming and soothing the listener as waves of guitars and synths glisten. However I was not expecting the final track to divert from this path with the band showing a different side. The title may give some clues because Krautro is a droning Krautrock opus. Even at … Continue reading VIM – Waiting EP

The Leaf Library – Hissing Waves

I enjoyed the Monument Series released earlier this year which was the side project works of members of The Leaf Library. Now the band will be releasing their new and second album, entitled The World Is A Bell, next month. Hissing Waves is the first track to be lifted from the album and it’s a hypnotic, vibrating track that through it’s various folds mixes elements from a range of genres. Drone pop in it’s element. The World Is A Bell is released on 25th October 2019 and will be available in limited, vinyl, CD and digital formats. It can be … Continue reading The Leaf Library – Hissing Waves
