Bongley Dead – 4 (2015)



  • Alternative rock 
  • Indie rock 
  • Post-grunge 
  • Hardcore

Comment: recently Italian quartet Bongley Dead released a brand new one, Undici, on their own terms being uploaded and letting available for free download at Soundcloud, and Mediafire. Before that they had issued 4, the predecessor of Demo n.3 (2014). In comparison to its predecessor 4 abandons trudging across a path being based on heavy and moshy alternative rock guitars (though Demo n.3 includes exceptions either – even hints at dance punk/rock were represented over there). The guitars are more extended and outstretched, light-hearted and jangling in their timbre and style of play. Yet one should not forget and misunderstand it is not an example of jangle pop because the combo is being influenced and rooted by hardcore and (post-)grunge music. For instance, Blueworms is a pure example of post-grunge style with a commercially accessible tone. Nice pop song indeed. Similarly to the previous outing a Sonic Youth influence (especially at Silent Queen) is also present over there yet it is more buried as it was presented in some songs at Demo n.3. A poppy Sonic Youth version. At She Comes Too Late the ending part is accentuated with epic shoegaze tinged noises. It can be admitted their style seems to be more uniform and unvarying with regard to the previous one. By the way, they are being very kind by adding 41 cover prints (sic!) within the folder. I did have to choose only one from this bunch. Because of having listened to the great album a next step of mine is to listen to Undici.

Abisales – ABSLS (2017)



  • Art rock 
  • Jazz rock 
  • Fusion 
  • Progressive rock 
  • Yacht rock

Comment: this swarm of 3 tracks is played by a quartet called Abisales who comes out of Còrdoba, Argentina. One chord is followed by another, gentle guitars are backed up by spacey synthesiser chords, the soundscape used to ascend and descend in a picturesque way.. Although it is tagged as psychedelic rock, space rock, and rock and roll at Bandcamp their music and intention remind more of progressive rock, and fusion. Their approach is based on the first mentioned tag, and the combo`s timbre is very fusion/jazz rock-alike. And yacht rock, of course, the style is quite nearby because for me the whole is an example of artsy mood music imbued with ambition, lofty feeling and craftiness. Predominantly a Pink Floyd influence is present over there. Great thanks to Fran, Nahuel, Pelado, Pablo, and Cristian. And of course, similarly to me you shall have to listen to the combo`s previous four issues either (in fact, XDCS (2013) was reviewed at RMH three years ago and mentioned as one of the best albums in 2013).
