On Learning Curve Records comes the new album by Something Is Waiting. I have no idea who these people are that play in this band or where they are from. I found their facebook page after a terrible five minute search and there was a lot of text on it so i did not bother to read it. Their music is pretty damn awesome, makes me think a bit of Locean and Shimmer. listen to it a bit and stuff. It is out on Learning Curve Records.
From Manchester comes the band Locean with an incredible new release. This is another one of those bands this year that excels in their originality. Locean brilliantly infuses their music with a lot of different genres, there is noiserock, punkrock, nowave, psych and I don’t know what else. They experiment with these genres and create something unique and very pleasant to listen to. The album starts of with a 7 minute track with a gorgeous bassline, noiseguiters through the track and the hypnotic vocals of Lauren Bolger. “Skyn” is the second track and sounds like a trip on mushrooms, six minutes of trance. “Pussycat” was the single and the most energetic track. The album closes with “No Skyn” and shows a band that can create an hypnotic atmosphere with noise influences and psych.
“Chav Anglais” is released November 1 on Artificial Head Records and is a beautiful piece of hypnotic psych and noise. Most definitly will Locean end up on my end of the year list.
Manchester band Locean released the first track called ‘Pussycat’ from their upcoming EP called ‘Chav Angels’. This EP will be released October 18 through Artificial Records. The first track is an excellent mix of chaotic noise, gorgeous bass lines and punk vocals. I want more of this, yes please.
