Time to start the week with a few choice musical films… ten to be exact.

So come with us a follow a path from the brilliantly louche, disaffected punk of Dilly Dally to the off-kilter urgency of Velcro Hooks by way of the mediative melancholy of Daniel Martin Moore, the energetic alt-country blues of Alex Culbreth, and the tripped out psychedelics of the Lucid Dream and plenty more besides.

Friday Round Up

Once more drowning in a sea of new tunes, and so here is another quick and dirty round-up of the first seven to impress…

Parts Primitive is the debut album from London-based band Primitive Parts. The band consists of Sauna Youth, Monotony and Male Bonding alumni who first practiced in 2012 after working together in a record shop in Crouch End with the goal to make something that might sound like ‘Stiff Records in the 60s‘. They count The Deep Freeze Mice, Mick Jagger and Swell Maps among their many influences. Listen to Miracle Skin from the album here,

.

Also from the streets of London comes three minutes of blues tinged rock n roll from Josh Flowers. With an influential nod towards the likes of The Black Keys, White Stripes and Blueskins, Smoke In My Eyes is an appropriately sleazy slice of garage blues.

.

From Brighton, psych/garage rock upstarts Strange Cages release a cracking new single, Pony, next week. A raucous, bluesy and playful two minute sonic blast that calls to mind the Stooges jamming with Blue Cheer.

.

Dilly Dally are four Toronto punks delivering an updated version of the quiet-loud-quiet simplicity mastered by the Pixies. New track Desire (from their forthcoming debut long player Sore) is as crunchy as they come.

.

Natural Snow Buildings records are usually of epic length (Daughter of Darkness was eight hours long), but new release Terror’s Horns clocks in at a more common 45 minutes. Listen to the weirdly excellent Sun Tower, a mere four minutes of sometimes blissful, sometimes contemplative, often menacing conditions. Stringed instruments trill, percussion gongs, feedback hisses and vocals maintain near monotone as if in a cultish trance.

.

Wovoka is the second track from the recently released Wovoka Gentle EP [Yellow] out Yucatan Records. Wovoka Gentle are an experimental folk three-piece from London, with their roots in folk and Americana songwriting, but also drawing upon the psychedelic soundscapes of the late 60s as well as contemporary experimental, jazz and collage music; marrying classic instrumentation with sampling, analogue synthesis and sound manipulation.

.

Guitar, piano, electric guitar and an occasional drumbeat, are all that fill the sonic space around Amy Bezunartea’s clear voice, which she uses to deliver lines that are bold and often confrontational. Listen to the deliberately sparse title track, and first single, from her new album New Villain.
