Today, New Music Friday, we’ve dug up some indie artists that really ought our attention. Three records with uniques and precise sensations are now available. Flashes.
RED BRAKE LIGHT SKY SESSIONS – WILD CAT STRIKE
Here’s an EP to which we associate the salty smell and taste of the seaside, and the spleen of a sunset, of the end of the holidays. It’s from Brighton that the band Wild Cat Strike have composed this new record, Red Brake Light Sky Sessions, of an infinite softness. Mustard, which introduces us to the high vocals of the band, also let the fresh air from the sea coming in. The feeling of the sand and the seafoam coming to our ankles has found a beautiful melodic translation that doesn’t leave us as we go through Toothcutter (Part 1 & 2), the light Swamp and Beekeeper.
THE WILD FRONTIER – THIS IS PROGRESS
The very colourful Sailboat opens a new album by This Is Progress, The Wild Frontier. And it’s an instant musical crush. Later, I’m An Army gives us the same quick energy. Behind the name is multi-skilled Steve Brown. Classical composer, electro producer, an Afro-beat arranger and a jazzman, it’s actually through folk that he seems to blossom, especially with this new record, the follow-up to his electro introspection released in 2013. Joy, mid-album mark, is probably representing the whole opus well with calmness and contemplative instants.
BETWEEN MOONLIGHT & THE MUSIC SHED – GOLDFISH SMARTS
Here’s an EP coming from Australia. Between Moonlight & The Music Shed, by the Goldfish Smarts, smells like a good old fashioned pub rock. Focusing on old-school classic rock as much as a deep and dark Americana with a sometimes-longing harmonica, the band shows its passion and never hesitate to try, nod and pay tribute to Petty and others. Blame It On The is a catchy tune and it tickles our curiosity. This is a great start for the band and we hope that the next EP will meet the bar this one has raised.
