The BeauBowBelles – All Over That

a3532625372_2

Having been lustfully seduced by the To The Moon EP, the debut release from UK band The BeauBowBelles which uniquely merged the richest essences of gypsy punk, folk, country rock, swing, with a classical elegance, we had an instant lick of the lips when presented with their new single All Over That. It did not let anticipation and expectations down either, from a deceptively slow beginning evolving into another stylishly mischievous and imaginatively flirtatious stomp. The London quartet has a sound which makes the common cold look lightweight in contagiousness and their new single is the band’s most virulent dose of melodic infection yet.

The foursome of multi- instrumentalists, Bertie Anderson (vocals, violin), Emma Price (vocals, flutes, accordion, bells), Ros Wilks (vocals, violin, keytar), and Marcus Daborn (guitar, kickdrum), has continued to breed an impressive reputation and acclaimed proposition live since making their entrance. Along with their previous EP, it has been an exciting emergence by The BeauBowBelles, a potent ascent now receiving a sizeable change of gear through All Over That.

A melancholic embrace of violin wraps ears first, a caress accompanied in no time by a smouldering kiss of brass and an emotive breath of keys. It is an invitingly shadowed and emotionally dark wash which finds a sultry light as horns proceed to flirt with guitar crafted melodies and the first kiss of vocals. The lyrics state at one point a “tantalising tune” and it nicely sums up the opening of the song, an intrigue and unpredictability which truly erupts as guitars and voices add urgency to their croon. It is a momentary loss of restraint though which teases wonderfully before the track slips back into its darkened gypsy waltz to sculpt and cast the same magnetic build-up again.

Eventually rhythms and bass strums get heavy with a passionate relish, dancing with the sweltering melodies as the song develops a seriously irresistible swing to its melodically erotic romp. It is not long into the song that feet and imagination, not forgetting emotions, are wrapped up in the track’s adventure and by its climax all are swirling with the whirling fever of a dervish in breathless bliss.

All Over That is an unbridled joy and devilish epidemic of enterprise, as infectious as it is poetically melodic. The BeauBowBelles are the masters of the dance, for body and soul.

All Over That is available from September 29th @ http://thebeaubowbelles.bandcamp.com/

Dirty Dishes – Thank You Come Again

Picture 7

A smouldering seduction of fiery sonic tenacity and vocal charm, US band Dirty Dishes has been a gripping proposition for quite a while through their attention grabbing releases and senses scorching sound but the band have laid down their most potent and thrilling marker with new single Thank You Come Again. Entwining grunge, punk, and noise rock in one raw and spellbinding wash, the band’s new release ignites an instinctive hunger in ears and emotions with consummate ease and skill.

Hailing out of Boston, Massachusetts, the now Los Angeles based band is the brain child of Jenny Tuite (guitar/vocals) and Alex Molini (synth/bass), the pair initially meeting at a party before subsequently uniting their creative craft and vision in the feisty shape of Dirty Dishes. It took little time for the pair to spark eager attention and appetites for their sound and presence, the band going on to play over the years with the likes of Passion Pit, Autolux, Speedy Ortiz, Trail of Dead, Best Coast, and Weezer. Both their self-titled EP of 2010 and the following The Most Tarnished Birds EP two years later drew acclaim but it is easy to suggest their contents were mere appetisers for the deepest inventive majesty of the band to be discovered, starting with Thank You Come Again. The single is a new twist in the noisy invention of the band, a loftier peak of contagious yet uncompromising sonic devilry which is quite scintillating.

A swift and brief blaze of guitar bred noise opens up the gates for a heavier breath of sonic intensity to escape the song, before it relaxes into a gentle caress of excellent vocal temptation from Tuite. Her voice mesmerises from the first note, its beauty courted by a dulled bass tone and jabbing beats before the returning caustic flame of energy and sound returns to ignite the senses. The song continues to revolve and merge both aspects of its raucous and transfixing beauty, the track enslaving thoughts like a mix of The Pixies, Sonic Youth, and Belly.

     Thank You Come Again is a sensational sweet abrasion on ears, a rigorous examination which flirts poetically whilst searing the senses. An introduction for some to Dirty Dishes and a continuation for others of their already impressive presence, the single is a gripping next step in the rise of a band destined to breach a global spotlight.

Thank You Come Again is available from September 29th @ http://dirtydishes.bandcamp.com

Kosoti – Bark and Sticks

FINAL kosoti band shot on balcony clean JPG

Though it does not exactly light a fire in the passions, the new single from UK band Kosoti certainly makes a highly flavoursome and satisfying appetiser for things to come. Bark and Sticks is an intriguing festival of healthy emotion and strong engaging sounds, a track which lingers long after its departure and incites a keen appetite for the band ahead. As mentioned it does not set the heart ablaze but easily reinforces the Newcastle sextet as a thoroughly tantalising proposition.

The seeds of the band, and certainly its impassioned sound, seems to have come from a near death experience in 2013 for vocalist/guitarist/songwriter Allan Hyslop, the press release for the single stating that he ‘realised that he should treasure every moment of his life doing what he loved, MUSIC!’. That emotion and emotional intensity is a rich soak to Bark and Sticks, and a band which from forming last year was soon impressing through the double A-sided single War/Pirouettes and soon after the Cradle EP. With a settled line-up of guitarist Seth Tinsley, bassist Christos Worsley, drummer George Hutton, vocalist Rebecca Gregson, and Paul Holdsworth on banjo alongside Hyslop, Kosoti has PromoImageevolved new twists to their sound and drive to their creative flame. Bark and Sticks is the evidence, a song which may not set the world alight but definitely gives it a warm enticing glow in anticipation of greater things from the band with its enterprising mix of folk and pop rock adventure.

A guitar caress and charming harmonies open up the song before a pulsating bassline alongside melodic enticement, wraps the ear as the warm grainy tones of Hyslop begins the song’s home town inspired narrative. It is a resourceful invitation which is soon revelling in an eager shuffle shaped by a great fusion between acoustic and electric guitar, which in turn is courted by the bubbling energy of the banjo. Vocally there is a reflective intimacy which equally shines thanks to the hazy voice of Hyslop and Gregson’s outstanding and varied vocal seducing.

Quick footed yet perfectly restrained to pull the listener physically and emotionally into its embrace, Bark and Sticks is only missing that final spark to turn impressed admiration into lustful enthusiasm. The track though shows that the potential is there and well within the band’s ability to grab even greater success over their incoming horizons.

Bark and Sticks is available digitally and on Ltd ED CD from September 29th @ http://www.kosoti.com/store/c1/Featured_Products.html

MACHINE ROX,THE FORMIDABLE INDUSTRIAL METALISTS UNLEASH NEW VIDEO!

Machine Rox

Bred through the carnivorous creative hunger of founder Richard K, British industrial metallers Machine Rox provide an irrepressible resistance-proof contagion striving to persistently ignite the senses. Since their formation in 2007, the band has sculpted a merger of metal and electro rock which rampages whilst pushing the boundaries of band and genre. Machine Rox now tear open the envelope even further with their stunning new video single.

Check it out at

‘Lost My Mind’ – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zZOjy7Lo4tM .

Machine Rox began as the solo project of musician/songwriter Richard K, ignited by his rich experiences and adventures from being part of industrial metallers Meat Machine and Global Noise Attack, with whom he shared stages with the likes of Rammstein, Napalm Death, and Covenant. The project grew with the addition of band member Aga in 2010, her unique backing vocals and keyboard seduction adding a new potency which took the well-received strengths of the band’s first two EPs to new commanding heights with the “Driven” EP. The recruitment of guitarist Valerian Oproiu and drummer Nuj Farrow in 2012 saw the quartet concentrating on lighting up the live arena, which they did to wide acclaim and with accomplished delivery through festival appearances and national shows. 2013 became Machine Rox’s strongest and most successful year to date as the foursome signed to Static Distortion Records and unleashed the voraciously received EP “Activate Your Anger ” and debut album “Shout”. With the recent “Intox” EP, a new toxicity rose to the surface of the band’s ever evolving and refining sound. Now with the band’s sophomore album “Next Level”, which is unveiled this September, the quartet have crafted a colossal record that is poised to break the mould. From the engaging synth work and anthemic pounding guile of the new video single ‘Lost My Mind, to the texturing and progressive groovage of ‘Illusion’, through to the hard-hitting beatings of ‘You Belong To Me’, this is a record that should not be overlooked.

Now with a hefty fanbase in tow, nearly 10,000 likes on Facebook, a killer new album, a host of festival appearances and a spanking new video single, there’s nothing stopping the band.

MACHINE ROX LIVE:

Saturday 11 October – DARK7 festival at The Electrowerkz, London;

Sunday 2 November – Cesspit Club, Sheffield.

The Arrogants – Introducing…

static.squarespace.com

The first striking thing, apart from four stomping songs, about Introducing… the new EP from French garage rockers The Arrogants, is the passion and obvious relish the band has for their music and its seeds. The release is a potent and energetic encounter which in presence alone gets the listener swiftly involved and feeling the heart of the band. The fact that the songs are also raw and vibrant slices of feverish enterprise does the success of the EP no harm either.

Inspired by and blending rich essences of blues and rock ’n’ roll with a sixties strain of rhythm ’n’ blues and garage rock, The Arrogants began as a 14-year old duo, becoming a 15-year old trio before the addition of an organist took the Lille band to a quartet. Earning an eager following and reputation through their live performances , which has included supporting The Pretty Things and playing the Vintage Weekend in front of 15,000 people, The Arrogants are poised to give the wider world a potent nudge with their new EP. Produced by Yvan Serrano and mastered by Pete Maher (U2, The Killers, Rolling Stones, Jack White), the Dirty Water Records released Introducing… is ready and able to stir up ears and greedy appetites for the band’s fiery sound.

Opening track Mr. Devil instantly has ears and attention awake with a flavoursome stroke of guitar, its spicy voice gripping bait to which the equally as organ melodies of Martin Tournemire adds their own savoury tempting. There is an immediate sixties touch to the track through those keys and also the echo kissed vocals of guitarist Thomas Babczynski, his agreeably ear grazing delivery as honest and raw as the feisty sounds around him. Rhythmically there is a more modern temperament, the bass of Louis Szymanowski strolling with broad shoulders whilst the beats of Hugo El Hadeuf bring a crispy flirtation and confidence to the magnetic encounter.

The delicious sweep of keys opening up We’re Arrogant next is another inescapable lure, its melodic embrace the perfect coaxing for the rhythmic swagger and guitar teasing of the track to spring from. With group vocals similarly sleeveinviting, the track makes a seductive persuasion for ears and emotions before kicking up a gear with a garage punk seeded feistiness which soaks the whole of the song before relaxing back into its opening flirty stroll. As its predecessor, it is an immediate romp which needs little time to set senses and imagination ablaze, something its successor not quite as swift in but ultimately finds the same excited reactions over time. With a delicious blues kissed harmonica joining the just as sultry organ adventure as the bass discovers its own throbbing suasion, the song strides with resourceful and unfussy, bordering on dirty temptation. In many ways like a mix of The Barracudas and The Pretty Things with a spice of 13th Floor Elevators, the song grows and flourishes to greater success over time, revealing more of the depths and potential of the band.

The EP is closed by the garage punk infused It’s an Experience, clunky riffs and a great moaning bassline making the perfect temper and compliment to the organ’s flowery designs. Driven by punchy beats and the distinctive almost angrily delivered vocals of Babczynski, the song is an unpolished, slightly antagonistic treat bringing a fine release to a richly satisfying conclusion.

The Arrogants are looking to broaden their presence and appeal beyond the spotlight of their homeland and with Introducing… they have made a very forceful and exciting start.

Introducing… will be released on Dirty Water Records on 6th October digitally and on 7” vinyl @ http://www.dirtywaterrecords.co.uk/shop/#!/The-Arrogants-Mr-Devil-EP-+-download/p/38334168/category=2902026

Vandettes – Let it All Go

Picture 52

An eagerly simmering cauldron of melodic expression and emotive energy, Let it All Go the new single from UK band Vandettes, provides a feistily tantalising introduction to a band already raising up a healthy buzz around them. The song is a robust dance of spearing guitar hooks and electronic flirtation immersed in melodies which linger longer than a hangover. It may only be one song but it suggests that Vandettes is a potent prospect here to stay.

Originally from Northern Ireland, the band moved to Liverpool with its members studying music at the city’s university. It did not take long for the band’s live presence and radiant indie sound to stir up keen attention locally and around the UK. This has led to the quartet of vocalist Robbie Cully, bassist Padraig Mcloughlin, drummer Marty Mcloughlin, and guitarist Daniel Kelly signing with SWC Artist Management and subsequently to Glasgow based Twin City Records for the release of Let It all Go.

The single opens on a gentle sonic breeze which is soon welcoming pungent string plucks from Kelly. It is a swift and engaging lure that succumbs to the even more enticing stroll of a dark bassline courted by the excellent vocal potency and v12expression of Cully. Magnetic melodic seduction from guitar and keys, as well as rich harmonies, ignite ears and imagination further, the track soon a bubbling revelry of skilled enterprise and irrepressible contagion. There is an eighties breath to the energy wrapping ears too, a friendly and familiar temptation which evolves into something equal fresh through the modern snarl and tenacity of guitars and rhythms.

Potently impressing from Cully’s soaring vocals to the bordering on mischievous bass invention, the guitar adventure to the crisp provocative beats, Let It All Go is a striking and appetite sparking first step by Vandettes. The beginning of big things it is easy to suspect too.

Let it All Go is available now on Twin City Records @ https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/let-it-all-go/id870573140?i=870573146

Kobadelta – Remain Distracted EP

kobelta

Having been enthralled by their rousing EP, The Hidden Door earlier this year, there was keen anticipation waiting for the release of its successor Remain Distracted. Both EPs come from the creative minds and resourceful imagination of UK band Kobadelta, and each provides a fascinating climate of sound and excitement to greedily immerse within. Remain Distracted takes the strengths and potency of its predecessor into new emotive and adventurous sonic flights, pushing the potential and emerging presence of the band into riveting and sultry landscapes. In some ways it is a slow burner compared to the last release but through a quartet of fiery and seductive songs, sets down the most potent and heady pinnacle from the band yet.

The release of Remain Distracted comes in a potent year for the Newcastle quintet which has seen them chosen to play Newcastle’s Evolution Emerging festival, as well as Stockton Weekender (with Happy Mondays and Public Enemy headlining) and Split Festival (with Maximo Park, The Cribs and Dizzee Rascal). Added to that there has also been a live session for BBC Introducing as well as numerous successful shows with bands like Allusondrugs. The new release adds another strong moment in the band’s year and one more irresistible enticement to develop a rich hunger over.

As soon as the sultry stroke of guitar from Alex Malliris opens up first track Siam, there is a potent temptation at work, its smouldering yet ripe lure a swift caress and announcement of the dark psychedelic invention the band is already acclaimed for. Another breath sees the hypnotic throaty basslines of Jon Marley join the evolving enticement of the guitar and the enterprising rhythmic framing of Chris Malliris. It is a glorious flame brought further to life by the mellow yet nicely raw tones of vocalist Dom Noble, all this against the already tantalising weave of melodic expression cast by the keys of Jordan Robson. It is a stunning track, elements of The Doors colluding with other whispers of bands like early The Horrors, 13th Floor Elevators, and Thee Exciters in an original fire of sound equipped with infectiously imposing hooks and grooves.

Repetition steps up next and instantly finds a heavier growl to its riffs, though that weight is not quite transferred to the crisp beats and elegant bassline. That restraint on some aspects and the mix of dark and light within the song works kobadelta epa treat all the same; its steady but feisty canter evolving through a sultry slow flight of immersive keys before breaking back with increasing tenacity in energy and attack. The Birthday Party like song is an intriguing shadow blessed proposition, not as dramatically gripping as its predecessor but growing into another absorbing and incendiary involvement of the imagination and emotions.

Its successor is less slow in gripping the passions, They Can’t Hurt Me floating in on another delicious almost sinister bassline. Its dark tone inspires a haunting essence to the minimalistic melody of the guitar and vocal croon of Noble, the merger offering a noir wrapped sultriness in presence and sound. There is a definite Cramps essence to the song as well as that of Jim Morrison and co, as well as hints of Damn Vandals and The Dropper’s Neck, but with an ingenious addiction sparking bait from bass and guitar aligned to similarly anthemic beats, the track is a slice of brilliance distinct to Kobadelta and their greatest song yet since forming.

The EP is closed by The Heretic, a sizzling sway of sonic causticity and melodic temptation driven by a swaggering rhythmic and riff crafted enterprise. As in other songs there is a prime hook which is inescapable for ears and passions, its coaxing leading the senses into the scorching haze of guitar and atmospheric heat of the keys. With the delivery of Noble again parading the song’s narrative with an unfussy but magnetically expressive texture, the song is a mesmeric consumption of the senses and a fine end to another impressive release from Kobadelta.

The band just gets better and better as evidenced by Remain Distracted ensuring whatever comes next from Kobadelta will be met with greedy anticipation.

The Remain Distracted EP is available from September 26th @ http://kobadelta.bandcamp.com/
