Vaga-Lume – Vaga-Lume EP (2015)




/Post-rock, Indie rock, Lo-fi, Alternative rock, Jazz rock, Math rock/

Comment: by listening to this duo of Catalan heritage from London, Great Britain I feel myself delighted because this set of 7 tracks being conjured up by Max Feriche and Javi Carles contains joyful post-rock progressions as if performed either in open air or recorded in the unplugged way. Furthermore, the duo used to add some gales of laughter, occasional samples of everyday and previously recorded environmental sounds to the mix. By the way, one of the pieces was recorded in the bathroom. The latter, Parece Vela (Baño) is an instant improvised excursion for simple guitar twanging, vowel induced hum and harmonica solo. All of that renders the chugging of their melting pot in a way to seem even more enjoyable and organic and seamless rather than by the case of just following only one orthodox pace. By their post-rock side the Catalans play bold post-rock progressions with some math rock and some lighter alternative rock influences. The composition Jab involves a saxophone solo played by Dudù Bongo. Amusing.

Jaroslaw Lewandowski – Overhearing (2009)




/Glitch techno, IDM, Deep techno, Experimental electronica/

Comment: although this 11-track issue could be considered an example of dance music it is actually much more than just a mere groovy vibe act. Indeed, it is based upon crunchy IDM-alike techno beats yet the Polish producer JL is handy at embellishing those rhythms with glimmering and warm synthesised vibes as if coming out of the nexus of the Earth or layers of otherworldly still life. For instance, listen to a track called Yesterday Night of being an instance of ideal pop music. These tracks just start off from nowhere to progress and manifold slowly yet consistently during the pathway. The artist`s music is about beats and intimacy wrapped up in velvety tones and enchanting predilection of thought-provoking sonic ideology. Even the most minimal and austere moments over there, for instance, 14b (Surrealizm Remix), Intro reveal their nature of being ready to ensnare their victim. In a word, it is a case of meta-techno wound up in front of the listener.

Vivian Girls - May 11, 2009 Bowery Ballroom (2009)




/Live session, Garage rock, Punk rock, Noise pop, Alternative rock, Shoegaze, Dream pop, Indie rock, Lo-fi/

Comment: If to have some words about genuine modern female musicians one should explore women within the art pop/indie pop scene throughout the last three decades. Recently I read Morrissey`s autobiography where he spots upon an early Manchester indie/post-punk scene where only The Fall`s line-up involves female musician. In fact, women involved in the indie music scene were not a self-explanatory thing at a time actually. Later on the things started to improve remarkably. One could discover such great songwriters as Kate Bush, Kirsty MacColl, Björk, and PJ Harvey, for instance. Furthermore, there are up musical groups where women played an important part – for instance, in the 80s Siouxsie Sioux and her Banshees, Kim Gordon from Sonic Youth, Elisabeth Fraser from Cocteau Twins, Bilinda Butcher, and Debbie Googe from My Bloody Valentine, Emma Anderson and Miki Berenyi from Lush, Tara Vanflower from Lycia, Rachel Goswell from Slowdive, Toni Halliday from Curve, Lisa Germano, and Hope Sandoval if to name the most pre-eminent persons and musical groups. The 90s and 00s revealed innovative newcomers including Laetitia Sadier, Mary Hansen (most notably related to Stereolab), Megan White (The White Stripes), Brighton, Great Britain-based feminist art/experimental rock combo Electrelane, Pocahaunted and Best Coast. Vivian Girls was a Brooklyn-based trio who started off in 2007 and went on hiatus in 2014. In the meanwhile they issued three albums and had toured worldwide. Their music is a visceral blend of noise pop, feedback loaded punk, and dreamy female vocal driven enthralment. This 14-track gig was performed some months before issuing the combo`s sophomore album. Indeed, the performance used to fill in a good overview about their sound and dexterity to merge straightforward noise flows with hazy subtleties coming out of a vocal mannerism and catchy melodies. Although it could be said the trio`s permanent shift is somewhere in-between post-punk and shoegazing one can actually hear more artsy influences and drifts thereby reminding of Electrelane as a kindred soul sometimes. They bring forth lots of energy, charm, and verve for your pleasure. Amazing gig by any means.
