Falling In Time/Bodyshock – Violets

March 8, 2018
fromthelisteningnook

Format: 7″ Black Vinyl

Side A: FALLING IN TIME – A rhythmic electronic beats bonanza wrapped up in a miasma of magical female vocals. A tad trancey, a bit hypnotic, this pulsating and ethereal pop dance track stuffs envelopes full of deep meaning and posts them at you with glorious fervour. It might be a dance track, but it might also be a philosophical tract. Either way, it is fantastic.

Side B: BODYSHOCK – Trance bassline wedded to sublime vocals generates a wide and expansive electro-meets-contemplative-pop masterpiece. An eclectic mix of ambient sounds and instrumentation massages your ears and enriches your brain. This is think-piece music, a track with meaning and purpose.

Score: 10/10

Vinyl Thought: Let me live in this electro-philosophical world and float away on a pulsating beat of deep thought

Do You Love Enough/Help Me – Nia Wyn

March 8, 2018
fromthelisteningnook

Format: 7″ Black Vinyl

Side A: DO YOU LOVE ENOUGH – A dark and dusky, sultry slow jazz shuffle suffused with gorgeous female vocals. Engaging and insightful lyrics propel you into a seedy dive bar, shadows encroaching as you are drawn inexorably into the story being spun by the singer. All that, and some lovely oooh aaahs!

Side B: HELP ME – We’ve moved down the street to a smokey blues club. A deeply soulful song featuring characterful and powerful falsetto vocals. A bit blues, a smidge bluegrass, with a soupcon of hip hop/house rhythm section. Real life stuffed in a slow-jam package.

Score: 9/10

Vinyl Thought: Fedora hats and whiskey chasers – the singer in this dive bar is something stunningly special.

Be Your Man / Dead Dreamers – Demob Happy

February 27, 2018
fromthelisteningnook

Format: 7″ Transparent Green Vinyl

Side A: BE YOUR MAN – beat-tastic modern-day Beatles, melodic thumping rock/pop with a rollicking rhythm section and 60s experimental vocals.  Great fun, exciting music that grabs you by the balls and never lets go!

Side B: DEAD DREAMERS – an homage to Muse? It certainly sounds like Matt Bellamy vocals, and the overall electro-rock style will immediately bring the Bristol rockers to your mind. It is an accomplished piece of song-writing chock full of sonic canyons, blistering big guitars and insistent rhythmic patterns. There’s a touch of Billy Talent hidden within. Beautiful production offers up a full soundscape to revel in.

Score: 8/10

Vinyl Thought: An accomplished homage to two amazing bands – what else is up the sleeve of Demob Happy?
